The guy I bought my '83 Mustang L from in high-school drove it from British Columbia, to Northern Ontario with no brakes what so ever. He slowed the car down by throwing it into first and used to stop the car by throwing it into park. ....that probably explains why I only gave him $100 for it. Put new brakes on it all the way around and rocked it for that entire summer, into my senior year of high-school and all through the next summer. The sunroof leaked and it didn't even have a radio. Best car I ever owned....(no lie). I eventually traded it for a running Bronco II and Ford Ranger. Found it in a local wrecking yard almost a decade later. I just about bough it back from the yard, until I found out he bottomed it out going over a set of rail-road tracks and trashed the undercarriage. RIP "Desert Storm"....you will be missed.
