HOWARD'S ANSWERS AND COMMENTS
from Hometown & State:
was raised a military brat. That means I never lived on one
place for more than 3 years until I graduated from high school
and received an invitation to go into the Army because my draft
number was picked. Bloomington Illinois was my home for 30 years
after I got out of the Air Force.
have lived in Gilbert since the summer of 1997. The company I
work for gave me the opportunity to work in a new data center in
the frame full restore 1973 Mustang convertible that is red with
white top and interior. It has the 351C (H) engine and FMX
automatic transmission. It also has the front spoiler, ram air,
and the slotted mag wheels that were optional on the í73 only.
This car has no aftermarket chrome or other goodies, it almost
looks like it did in a dealers showroom!
of other Mustangs you have owned:
I got out of the Air Force, I bought my first new car. It was a
1973 Mustang Mach 1 that was metallic blue with silver stripes.
It had the 351C engine and the C6 tranny. In 1975 I got a
Mustang II cobra that had the 302 engine, automatic, and was
white with blue stripes. In 1981 I got a Mustang GT with 302 and
auto that was all black. It had the front air dam, rear spoiler
and louvered rear window cover.
Mustang you ever owned:
have to say the one I have now. I like it better every time I
drive it and people yell or wave. It is a real attention getter!
you heard about the AZMCC:
attended the Pavilions car show a couple of months ago.
influenced you & Mustangs:
biggest influence was when I saw a mustang on the internet last
year that brought back so many memories that I just had to have
one again after 20 years. I am about to retire, the price was
right and I was going to need a hobby.
place you drove your Mustang:
66 from Flagstaff to Needles California. The old part of 66 from
Kingman to Needles brought back memories from the 50ís.
Thatís a long story!
memorable Mustang adventure:
from Bloomington Illinois to visit by brother in Colorado
Springs. I would drive back with the car loaded (including the
front passenger seat) with cases Coors beer. Back then it was
not sold East of the Mississippi. I was stopped by the Highway
Patrol in Kansas and was told it was illegal to transport
alcohol across state lines. The officer said he really liked my
í73 Mach and if I would not touch the beer until I got home,
he did not see me!
good care of your Mustang. There is nothing like the memories a
one owner car has to offer!
do you get the most from your Membership in the AZMCC:
a classic convertible muscle car in Arizona weather! And meeting
people that love Mustangs and are a valuable source of Mustang
& outside interests of yours:
US coins, photography, and travel.
special about you you'd like to share with the AZMCC
a Military Brat, I not only lived in a lot of places, but I also
had hundreds of friends in my life. I found out that there are
47 people in Arizona that I went to high school with in
Frankfurt Germany in the 60ís. We have regular get-togethers
and have a lot of fun!
