My son and I restored the Mustang in our spare time over a time period of two years. We completely took it all apart and put it back together. Everything was completed by us except Stroud Engines. They built the motor and we put the engine in the Mustang. The kona blue metallic was chosen by my son and he has received lots of compliments about the color.
The first show he entered was the show in Swansboro, North Carolina and he won best mustang of the show. Also, we entered the mustang in the �23rd Annual Run to the Sun� in March 2011, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and won the Sponsors Pick out of twenty seven hundred cars. We have entered the Mustang in many other shows and won numerous awards. One of the most exciting shows we entered was the �10th Annual Mustang Week Car Show in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and won an �Award of Excellence� out of about six hundred other Mustangs.

These are great accomplishments for the east coast antique car show owners with Mustangs. I receive accomplishments about the car each time I drive it out on a Sunday drive or someone stops by to see the car at the local cruise in�s.
