A couple things I've noticed from reading our postings- I don't know if anyone's noticed, but from the sounds of it just about every one of us never intended to ever buy a II. But somehow and in different ways the car had sold itself to us. Not pushed onto us or come to us like alot of the 60's cars do, the "I gotta have one cause everybody else thinks they're cool" cliche. And I too think the MII crowd is a different crowd and that separates us from other classic car groups. We're here cause we WANT to be, enjoy to be, and love our bastardized cars in a way that a '60s Mustang (or any other) owner will never know. And it truly amazes me how attached we are. Most of us, like someone said, do own 2 or more II's. Now the inside joke to a non-II owner would be you'd need more than 2 to keep one running. Yeah...well, at least there isn't 45 '76 Mustangs that all look alike at every car show or cruise you go to. Being unique has it's advantages. And you can't lie with the numbers. The II must have been a pretty damn good car to have sold in the great numbers that it did and it wasn't the only car in it's class on the market at the time.
