In our February issue, we put out the call to Mustang Monthly readers to send us photographs of the Mustangs they owned back in the '60s and early '70s. We were overwhelmed with vintage pictures and digital copies, many with their then-much-younger owners alongside with beehive hairdos, leisure suits, and bellbottoms. We dressed differently back then, and we obviously treated our Mustangs much differently as well. Today, we baby them. In the '60s and '70s, we drove them, mainly as our everyday transportation, and modified them with side pipes, mag wheels, and everything else available at the local speed shop. Few of us ever gave a thought to preserving our Mustangs for the future. They were merely transportation, albeit much cooler than the average Galaxie station wagon.
Several readers sent photos from then and now. It's amazing how many original Mustang owners are out there who are still married to the young lady sitting in the car over 30 years ago.
So enjoy the look back at ourselves and our Mustangs.
