I know this may be a little late, but did any of you guys see the article about IIs in March's Mustang Monthly? They did a pretty good write-up too...about 6 pages long, mostly positive stuff about the II. It seems Mustang Monthly is about the only mag out there that will write stuff about IIs without regret...full fledged support from them.

If you haven't seen it yet, check it out. Should still be able to get a copy on the newsstand...if not, I'll see if I can fire up the scanner.

Yes, I saw the feature. It's nice seeing the MIIs get the respect they deserve.

Saw the article. I think the MII's are starting to gain momentum, saw a couple of nice examples at local car shows recently. Hopefully you'll start seeing more parts for them.

Well, for one, you won't ever find Mustangs Illustrated again. They are no more.

I think the MIIs will gain popularity. You guys just to keep on keeping on. The MII has a lot going for it. They look good, you can fit a V8 in them, they are fairly cheap to buy.

Personally, I think people that put them down don't know what they are talking about.

The more you guys build nice MII and drive them around, the more respect you'll get. I am always bummed out when I go to a car show and there are no MIIs there.

I'll say this much...there does seem to be more recognition and information availability for the IIs now than when I first bought mine back in '94. I had the damnedest time finding anything remotely appropriate for the II then. When I really started getting into the internet around '96, then things just started to fall into place with finding other people that actually enjoyed them, and parts sources.

It's been quite a ride so far...and it's not over yet!!

No doubt about it... the internet has done more for the II (in even 5 years), than any magazines, Mustang clubs, and/or combined years of promotional Mustang car events since the mid 70's ever could.
It's provided a realtime medium, where a (the) minority group of loyal owners scattered thruout the world, have been able to share resources and knowledge amongst themselves (and to the otherwise uncaring and uninformed)... in persuit of the preservation and recognition of an otherwise negelected member of the Mustang family.
Without it, the II owners and their cars would or might always have been/remained a somewhat disorganized and relativly isolated group, of continually diminishing size and scope.

Many thanks, and much credit should be given, to all the II websites that continue to let these cars not become forgotten, and help in making all our continued efforts with the cars possible and worthwile!

Mustang II's also help the farming community. Especially the "orange" growers.

See what I mean? The internet has even allowed someone other than Anita Bryant and Florence Henderson to promote Oranges for questionable causes..

Hang on to your cars! The older they get,the harder they will be to find,which will increase their value.

I once asked a man: "Who art thou, that ye may pass judgment upon others?" Then he added $75 to my fine...
