[QUOTE= I used to like the 69/70 Mustang Mach 1, now Im all about the 65/66 fastback[/QUOTE]

Funny, I used to like the Mach1s years ago, but now I'm all about converts - the 65/66 variety. Guess my tastes have changed - don't really like highly modified cars either.
I was always one of the odd ones since I also liked Corvette convertibles as well - most of my friends (and family) are either Ford, Chevy, or Dodge types and never will cross that line.
In fact, I like any of the muscle cars, even much of the Dodge series. Oddly, I've never really loved Camaros.
Now that I have my 69 L46 Convert, I cannot wait to get it out for Spring/Summer cruising. Like the rest, but my Vette is best!

I would own a 66 GT my good friend has, but its a coupe. If it were a fastback it would be under the lift my Corvette sits on. They are so cool. I had a 67 mustang coupe back in the early 80's. I'm a car guy, not necessarily a Corvette guy.

Me, Iím a ragtop guy, specifically a Ď72 C3. When I started my search for this car, Ď69-Ď72, convertible was mandatory. Not that coupes arenít incredibly beautiful to look at, it had to be a roadster. Nothing beats the top being down a nice summer evening.

Don't really care for any of the other years/models of vettes. For me its all about the lines of the car. Nothing against the others, they just don't do anything for me, not before, not since
Dittos on nearly all counts. Huge fan of the C3 chrome bumper coupes. Very familiar with Woodward, Telegraph, etc. Grew up in Oakland county, same time period. I wont even mention Teds, Totem Pole, Grande Ballroom, etc. as I'm sure you may be one of the few on here who could relate.
