Nice looking pony. Is that a after market top? Does it have a 289 or a 6 Cyl. in it? I don't even know if they had 289's in the first ones.

Yeah you wouldn't be able to find a car that old with an original top on it. Me and a buddy put this one on the car bout 10 years ago. Car was a 260 V8 to begin with but the engine give out years ago and I replaced it with a mildly built 289. You could upgrade to the 289 in the early cars but most didn't till 65 year production.

Have drove that road quite a few times visiting the various casinos, Hwy 90 was where it ended for Jane Mansfield so be careful ! For those that are too young to know who she was........ Marilyn Monroe though not bad at all was considered 2nd string to Mansfield. Nice Hoss you have too ! :biggrin:

Thanks, I use to live down that way and ran the beach roads quite often. It's nice to go back but there's a lot missing since Katrina.

The Mississippi Coast is special. When you tire of the casinos visit Bay St. Louis and Ocean Springs. It is sad what was lost in Hurricane Katrina and years ago Camille, even more intense but smaller than Katrina. The Mustang was introduced my senior year in high school, but I got my first one just last year!

I'll be checking the local pawn shops in these different towns and see if they have any marlin's I can rescue. One or two should fit fine on the back seat.

I guess we all have our want's. Some are small, some are large, some cost little and some cost a lot. I guess the best thing to do is enjoy this life we have cause it's the only one we get.
