Another missing mustang

Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

When I was a finishing up Junior year in high school I purchased my first BOSS 302.  I would search for articles on the BOSS 302 written in 1970 to see how the car was received by the press. In an article by Car and Driver they took an essentially stock BOSS 302 and put race rubber with different rims and from this photo side exhausts and went to road race it. The title of the article was something like "The Flagman Says Car's Number 9's Stereo Is Too Loud" . It made me feel a little better they were a capable car, I just couldn't afford a first generation GT350. From memory this may be the car from this article ? Never knew it got bumped in the race, interesting photo.

Looking back in the photo it was in the "A" sedan race group.

The January, 1970 C&D article by Brock Yates was also reprinted on pages 3-4 of the Boss 302 Chassis Modification book.

These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. not just the look of it when its all clean.CS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road
