'67-'68 ? Mustang, printed on the trunk "rear axle fluids not drained" the car has winters, gas cup is missing, looks like it has taken

 a hit on the left side, or a roll over. Could it be part of a collision test, or testing crash ? ? Any idea where it was taken, Ford

 proving grounds ? Looks like a van in front of it, maybe that's the vehicle it collided with ? and some shirts standing around in the

 cold.

I know some one here will come up with the answer  ;)

I don't think that's the Dearborn P.G.  Possibly Romeo.

I just saw a picture posted of about a hundred Factory Five Cobras together at a meet.

The caption said it was Bryn Mawr. Where? Pennsylvania?

That's hot !

     The vinyl/plastic tubing installation on three of the four carburetor fuel bowl breather extension tubes is interesting, perhaps problems with fuel percolation or?   :-\

     Usually from running rich. Also indicates unequal fuel mixture on those that are cooler. You would think lean but it is actually fuel still burning as it exits the engine and continues to burn.

They have a meet in Huntington Beach CA every year https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZ0IVDisFLg

The next one is Saturday, April 30, 2022 Huntington Beach, CA

Join us and Factory Five customers for the 12th annual Huntington Beach Cruise-In held on Saturday, April 30th on Main Street at the base of the world-famous Huntington Beach Pier! The 2020 and 2021 Cruise-In dates were cancelled due to COVID, so this should be a proper celebration!
