I was walking south on Broadway to pick up a sandwich from Subway while en route to my weekly Euchre game, when I spotted this 1974 Ford Mustang II across the street from the restaurant.
The slightly-recessed grille gave away the model year, and this particular car – though clearly not a trailer queen – appeared to be very well cared for.
Once done with my photos, I waited in line at the restaurant to place my order. The sandwich artist behind the counter must have seen me snapping pictures, because he asked me about my interest in the car.
I explained I was something of a car fanatic, and that I couldn’t remember when I had last seen a Mustang II like this on the street in such great condition.
The kid in front of me in line then turned around and gave me an incredulous look as he asked me, "That’s a Mustang?"
I like these cars, but I couldn’t help but chuckle.
