Hi guys and fellow horsemen,

a few weeks ago, I saw the nice autumn colors in the woods and took the Mach 1 for a spin out there. The canon cam on the passenger seat, I looked for nice photo locations. I found some nice colorful leaf beds southwest of Hamburg, germany and used the opportunity for some nice shots which I like to share with you. Have fun with them.

Michael

Great pictures! To apply for the car of the month just page down to the forums under odds and ends, Car of the month submissions, it will explain what to do. Ryan.

Hey guys,

I had some requests and appreciation comments on the color of the car. It is true that the blue catches the eye, especially when the car is parked in the sun. There is a special "glow" to it which is not in the factory acapulco blue. That is true.

I did not exactly reproduce the original color, although it was my first intention to make the car as close to its former factory look as possible. First doubts came when I put a lot of the interior repro parts and repainted parts next to the color swatches with the acapulco blue. There was some "bite" and some disharmony in the colors. So I picked more color swatches from my painter and expermented further with a good friend with safe taste having all the upholstery and trim stuff on a table outside on a sunny day.

We found the stunning color in the Glasurit color library and we both instantly agreed that this is THE color. It is a hue darker and greener than the factory blue, but shines a lot more.

The Glasurit color code is MB764.00

The Glasurit color code for the argent used is MA158.50

I have some more pics that show the almost eletric glow in the sunshine. And some from the paint shop while the job was done.

Best wishes

Michael

Hi Michael,

I was reviewing the photos of your drop dead gorgeous Mustang, and was inspired to put pictures and music together while i was watching the photos in detail. My apologies if my selection doesn't appeal to you, but i thought the marriage of this musical piece and your pictures was a delicious blend.

Hope you enjoy.:)


BTW - I've had a couple of drinks as well to go with it!:p
