Car Watching - 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible

 Imagine my joy when I saw this 1967 Mustang Convertible while hiking with the family at Mastodon State Park today.  It was quite a looker!
 Two of my favorite features of the 67:  The Pony Grill framed with the bars, and the slats just ahead of the rear wheel.  The 68, while using the same overall body and body panels, has no bars and no slats.  Trivial, but I like them.
 This one had a nice modern wheelset, but they have historical significance in that the styling was used in a number of years for the Mustang.  They were nice and wide on this one.
 Nice interior, too.  This example has a tilt-away steering wheel as you can see.
It's a V8 car, only Lord knows what V8.  It had a nice set of pipes that tucked up well under the valance, and it would have been nice to hear it roar away.  A wonderful find on a wonderful day!
