I bought my first '71 when I was in high school (17) from a neighbor when it was 9 years old. Rebuilt it, drove it through high school, marriage, and the blissful years before...sold it when the kids came along. Bought my current '73 when AARP started calling - so I guess the middle age thing and a true love for 71-73s.

I bought my first one, 71 M code Mach1, when I came back to the states in 1976. I was 22. I'm on number 5 now. I just liked the way they look. Chuck

I was 25 in 1973 when I bought my Mach 1 new and have 10 Mustangs total bought three verts in last 7 months. I am 67 now. My life was always a crisis so I was always buying something, lol.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Was 24 and had just returned from overseas in 1975 when I bought my 71 Pewter M code Mach 1. Was a more "Seasoned" 30 when I acquired my red 71 M code Mach 1 in 1981. I've had around 10 Mustangs so far. My 67 289 4 speed and a 85 4bl 5sp(still own) probably rank as the most fun to drive. But there was just something about the "Look" those 71's had. I was hooked and the rest is history!

First Mustang, 2nd car. Early 80's when I was 16. I pulled it as a wreck from the family salvage yard. Rebuilt it from available parts and whatever funds I could earn. Had it until I got married, That seems to be a running trend.:slap:

The grill was with the car but both ends were broken and the lights where missing. I thought the rectangle headlights were a cool custom touch along with the handmade scoop. 30 years would go by before I got my current 'stang.

I've had a few cars , not all Mustangs, but my first Mustang was a '65 Hi-Po Coupe when I was 20, the second Mustang was a '66 Shelby GT-350 when I was 26, and my current Mustang, a '71 Mach 1 when I was 35...and still have the Mach 1.

Here's a good photo of the '65 Hi-Po Coupe after I restored it, and my current Mach 1.

Bought my red 73 mach in 1990 I was 24 years old. Had a very rusty 71 mach that I bought when I was 19 drove as a work car for a couple of years then parted out. Bought a 71 coupe project car a couple of years ago. Also have a 65 Fastback and a 65 coupe project cars I purchased in the mid 90's and a 83 GT I bought about 15 years ago it's my daily driver.

I bought my 73 convert when I was 20 years old back in 1974. I had a 70 Sportsroof before that.

31 yrs old and just got back from Afghanistan with extra $ in my hand. My first car was almost a 71 Mustang w/351C but my Dad test drove it and said "you ain't getting that car, you'll kill yourself."

Years later I picked up a 72 coupe, brown and ginger brown, white top.
