We had an overcast day recently so I grabbed a few poser shots of the Mach1...

Thanks all. It's nice to get it out while the weather is good. Summers here are a no go.

Nice and have to agree the black and white is a great pic. That would look good printed on canvas. You can edit out the light posts and road. it would make sweet picture.


Life is short so my your road be a long one.

Great pics of a great car. Most people think bright sun but early morning, late afternoon or overcast shows the subject so much better.
Now a factoid about black on our cars. Ford had to put so much hand work in a black car they dropped the color from the option list for 1972 and 1973. Lots of members are aware of this but some are not. Marti's book Mustang by the Numbers show hundreds of non factory colors starting the first year. 
For 1972 if you ordered a Mach 1 with black you got a chrome bumper since they did not have the elastomer paint for black. 

For 1973 since there were no chrome bumpers they painted the rubber bumper Argent on no stock colors. I have a black 73 vert and it states on the build sheet to add Argent front bumper. 

So if you look at a door sticker and it has a six digit DSO code and no paint code that is a Special Order non factory color so check closer.
