    1967 Ford Mustang

    While this photo isn't the car I owned, it is the same color and model as the one I had years ago. Originally, my Mustang was tan in color. When I got out of the military service, I purchased the car from a friend. I had the car painted a royal blue, replaced the tires with Uniroyal tiger paws and got air shocks installed in the back. It wasn't a fast car since it just had a straight six engine, with automatic transmission. I put a couple of big round, six inch diameter speakers behind the back seat and an Audiovox eight track player under the dash.
    I taught my sister how to drive with my Mustang. Together, we drove around our neighborhood, while blasting "Oye Como Va", by Santana, out of the car's speakers. Good times.
