In the Oct. '02 issue of Mustang&Fords on page 48....is a super sharp 67 cv. IT sits the way that I LIKE! LOW! Anyone hazard a guess as to the wheel and tire size on that bad boy! What a car!! The "automotive journalist" was not to "Smart" in this article by omitting this pertinent piece of info! Oh well!

You must be a youngun' who didn't grow up with these classics. Looks like a butcher job of a classic to me.

That car doesn't look THAT bad, I've seen way worse. I like that yellow fastback a few pages after it way better though.

I dont know what size the wheel and tires are.You could maybe email the mag. and they will tell you or find out.
That is one SWEET ride.If your young or not how can you argue with the fact that the guy made a classic ride handle and drive like a newer car.Its not butchered at all.I thought this hobby was about doing your own thing there SOARING Eagle?! Oh well your entitled to your own opinion I guess!
In MY opinion the guy dd a hell of a job with that car.
I get very dissapionted in Mustangs and Ford mag sometimes.Their articles are always very vague.They always leave out wheel and tire sizes too.

You just made my day!!!!!!!!!! First off, am in my 60's!!! and loving every F*****G minute of it!!!
2nd. When you were probably still in your swaddling clothes, I was at Ed Morse Ford in N. Miami Beach one sunny Nov.1965 day ordering my NEW 66 Mustang which came in right after New Year's 1966. I then bought a NEW 1967 Mustang in July, l967.
3rd. To get back to the story I like them LOW. And if that's a butcher job, all the more reason to keep on choppin'!! And I was butchering them when I was a kid ala 51 Chev cpe, nosed, decked, and lowered!!!!!. And then a 55 Chev 2dr terror! Nosed and decked!!! And I even nosed the hood of my Mother's Mercury!! You just can't take me anywhere!!!!
And...the last four vehicles that I have owned/own aside from my Mustangs..have had the emblems and names removed because they're glued on. My "rice" '02 Camry LE has been relieved of it's names-2nd day that I owned it!
4th This is the best post that I've read all week!! ROTFLMAO!!!
