It's rare that you come across a sixties Mustang just sitting on the street for months on end especially in Southern California where classic American cars are typically treasured. But here it is, less than a block away from the Hollywood Freeway near Studio City, just sitting there, rusting away.

Whose is it? No idea.

How long has it been there? Well, at least for the past four years that we've been passing through the area.

It's probably moved a few paces four or five times during that period, which got us to thinking as we approach the 50th Anniversary of the Mustang. With so many personal stories wrapped up into the cars, what's the one behind this pony car?

We've started inquiring around the neighborhood see if anyone knows who owns the car with no success yet.  But in the meantime, we decided to let YOU, our readers, take a stab at guessing what the story is behind this Mustang.

Go ahead - give us your take on this seemingly forgotten gem. What do you think led this Mustang to being practically abandoned on the street?  Sure, we know you'd be purely guessing, but give it your best shot.

Shaun Marvin (Wed, 04 Dec 2013 09:29:51 -0800): ill take it
Michelle Celmer (Wed, 04 Dec 2013 11:03:02 -0800): My friend John had one just like it in high school. Same color too.
