I'll be 52 in Nov (hopefully). First car at 16 was a 66 Mustang 289 4bbl dual exhaust, automatic. Kept that car through HS & college, but it just fell apart after that. All I have left is pictures and the hood scoop hanging on the wall of my garage. Wife and I waited until our first son out of college, 2nd son nearly out and we got the car we've wanted for 25 years. She always wanted a car with a blower, now we have one. The S197 is just perfect.
