One of the things I love about aimless wandering (both on foot and behind the steering wheel) is that you never know what you might see.  In my case, I’m always on the lookout for cool cars.  Maybe it’s a candy-apple red Alfa Romeo Spider, slumbering quietly on the street. Tucked in among the autumn leaves, most pedestrians pass it not even knowing what it is.  You wonder who owns it.  Perhaps it’s an old-school Ferrari on the freeway, breaking the speed limit, or an ancient Land Rover Defender that you frequently spot chugging around town.  You might be unable to distinguish between the cracks giving away its age and the scrapes broadcasting its adventures, but nonetheless, it definitely has a few tales to tell.

Cars are great storytellers as well as the subjects of great stories. Car enthusiasts and gear heads love a good car sighting or find—in a barn, in a garage, on the street… They remind one of simpler times when feeling the wind through your hair was all that was required to live. You never know what is lurking in the garage of the most unassuming house…

It seems that yet another great tale of an unknown, history-laden car has just been revealed in Chicago, IL.

When I was in high school I acquired a 1969 Mach 1 Mustang with a 428CJ engine and a C6 transmission. I paid the grand sum of $1400 dollars. The car was then 5 years old.

I had to get rid of it when the octane rating of gas declined to 97 and you couldn't apply any pedal without the engine knocking. The compression ration was nearly 11:1.

I sold it after owning it for a couple of years for $900. The guy that bought it immediately pulled out the 428 and the C6 transmission, gutted the interior and installed a 351 and a 4 speed.

I should have shot the bastard.
