We traveled to Steamboat Springs, CO last Saturday to spend a couple hours at the Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup. There were lots of great Mustangs and great opportunities to talk to many Mustang enthusiasts. Here are a few stories that we would like to share.
3. 2006 Roush
We only had a couple minutes to speak to the owner of this 427 Roush, but we learned that she purchased the Mustang as a 40th birthday gift. (Pretty great gift!) She had grown up in her fathers garage and knew all about Mustangs so she went to work on her own to create the car we see here.
1. 1968 High Country Special
2. Fox Body
This Fox Body Mustang has a fast past. We met two gentlemen, a father and his son. The car originally belonged to the father. He used to drag race the car, and after many years of racing and winning he decided to retire the car because it had "become too dangerous". His son asked him one day if he could try driving the Mustang. Reluctantly, he agreed. His son was good at car racing video games, but could he drive the real deal? Turns out, the son is one heck of a driver. The two restored the car to its old glory, including updating the suspension to improve its handling and they still race the car today.
As Coloradans, the High Country special piques our interest. This couple was eager to introduce their car. They have owned the car for over 20 years. This car is very rare, it is one out of an order of 251 High Country Specials that was shipped to Denver in the summer of 1968. We are looking forward to finding more of this special edition as we travel to shows this summer.
