1966 Ford Mustang
Table of Contents
This car has an immeasurable amount of sentimental value to me. Besides being my Mother's first car, this '66 Mustang is the car I learned to drive in.
It was also the car I grew up in.
It was even the car I was brought home from the hospital in, as a baby.
To say that this car has been an important part of my entire life is an understatement.
This one car is responsible for my love affair with both driving and Mustangs and it's why my first car was a '66 Mustang, as well.
In fact, I went for a number of road trips in it before I could see over the dash. Of course, that was a time before child car seats. To this day I can still remember not being able to see out of the windshield — most of my view was that of the Mustang running horse on the glove box door.
Not only was this the car I learned to drive in, before I had the Original 351, this was the car I drove to high school every day..
After the Original 351 was gone, I continued to drive it off and on, resurrecting it several times with rebuilt or replaced powertrain components and often extensive maintenance and repair.
Between my Mother and I, we logged multiple hundreds of thousands of miles on it before it eventually went down for a final time and it's been sitting derelict ever since.
Project: Homecoming is the project that returns my Mom's Mustang to the road so that I can revisit it anytime I want.

Around this time of year, the yearning to hit the open road gets intense for me.
I love old gas stations.
Rear ends and drivelines are often poorly understood by automotive enthusiasts and professionals alike and author Joseph Palazzolo understands that.
In his book High-Performance Differentials, Axles and Drivelines he packs 144 pages full of interesting and relevant information on the subject.

I like car butts and I cannot lie.
Boy, howdy was I sick this week.
RV covers aren't exciting.
Change is inevitable.
I grew up with the open road.

I'm not gonna lie, the Camaro has never really stood out much for me.
