She's doing pretty good for a 40th birthday. No wrinkles, butt has not spread out, sure, she's a little dirty but nothing wrong with that. :)

 

(That was last year, now is is 41)

 

Edit 2014: Now she is 42!

Edit 2018! Now she is 46!

Another year and now she is 41. Still looking good.

 

Last year she got a new set of hookers and a crossover. Lately I have been messing around trying to get the most of of the motor. Oh and a new radiator just a few weeks ago. I have the GV OD waiting to go in soon so I guess that's the present for her 41st.

It was a good year for the girl. I got the GV OD in and am loving the improved manners highway speeds along with the improved gas mileage. A new dash pad really helped the interior.

 

I need to get the exhaust repaired and figure out why she runs rough after warming up. This year might include some work on the interior.

Well a few more years and the Mustang is now 46! So close to the magic 50 mark. Honestly I didn't spend much time last year working or driving my Mustang. I hope to get some more seat time this winter while the weather is nice. (Arizona). I have been spending too much time with my old FSJ Cherokee Jeep, getting out and wheeling in the desert. Happy 46th birthday!

Hit 47 yesterday. (I am a bit late, I am traveling on business).

 

She's been ignored a bit. Early November I am going to have it towed home, change the oil, check the fluids and fire her back up. Put some fresh gas, give her a bath and then drive around!

 

I probably need to put on some new tires, but that means possibly new rims too.

 

I am looking forward to some seat time.

Congrats!  Mine will turn 50 on 10-9-20.  10920...Hmm...My daughter was born on 90210 (ring a bell?)...number anagram.  And also, Mach 1 will turn 50 15 days before my wife.  I wonder if she'll get an all day celebration, the wife I mean.  lollerz

Well, the old girl hit 48 today.    It's hard to believe in just two years it will be half a century old.    I've owned it for most of it's 'life'.
