Whoever is running Ford’s marketing division may just be the coolest person ever. Or at least they are right now. This drifting gathering is epic.
Here’s one that’ll definitely have Mustang fans dreaming of hitting the lottery – a collection of Boss Mustangs known as the Calypso Coral Boss Quartet.
The four Mustangs, which include a 1970 Mustang Boss 429 Fastback, a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Fastback, a 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Fastback and a 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Patriot Edition, will all be up for auction at Mecum’s upcoming inaugural auction in Seattle.
Apparently the typical Mustang restoration project wasn’t enough for a guy in Texas who owns a 1970 Mach 1.
Juan Martinez decided he wanted to pay homage to a rare Mach 1 “Twister Special,” which only consisted of 96 units when the model was first built.
In its fifty year history of the Ford Mustang the period between 1974 and 1978 isn’t exactly remembered as the heyday of performance. Even so, the Mustang II, built during that time period, represented an important part of the model’s history. For starters, the Mustang II was an enormous sales success. Nearly 400,000 were sold in 1974, more than any other year since 1967. It also represented a return to a car that was lightweight and affordable, and most likely saved the Mustang extinction during the oil shortages of the 1970s.
There’s no denying that cars are special. No matter how many you end up owning, you never forget the first that was officially “yours.” Now, that might be a particularly fond memory if you drove something like a Corolla, but If it’s something like a mustang… You can bet that those years are going to be unforgettable.
