I bought my 72 in 1984 and although I've had a lot of offers from potential buyers I always answer their offers with "It's not for sale" I've owned a mustang since I was 16 years old and I just turned 60 and I plan on owning this present car until the day I die. So how about you How long have you been into this mania for me it's been 44 years of mustang ownership and hopefully a lot more to come.

I always had a least one Mustang since I was 15 in 1979, currently have three stangs total. One 72 Sprint sportsroof (since 2012) and one 72 Sprint coupe (since 2015).

5.5 years... always been a fan, but fell in love in 1982 (when I was 14) with a Grabber Yellow H-Code Mach 1.

Drooled over a '71 M-Code Mach 1, and a '72 Sprint Coupe from 1987-88 (the cars owned by a few friends when I was stationed at Holloman AFB, NM) while I had my '82 Mustang. Curiously, never noticed any '71-2-3s until spring of 2010, when I picked up a copy of Mustang Monthly just because I was bored one day - saw an article about a Grabber Lime '71 Mach 1 and was reminded again of the Yellow H-Code. A few months later I found mine on Craigslist, waffled for a few weeks, then finally bought it in August 2010.

31 years. Second car I ever owned. 1973 Mach 1 was the first but it was wrecked and I replaced it with the drop top.

Mister 4 x 4,

My grabber lime Mach was a Nov '09 Mustang Monthly feature car, wonder if it's the one you remember. Haven't seen too many grabber lime ones in Mustang Monthly.

Posted the magazine article in the garage section of this site. Check it out under the name "Mac".

My first car was a 73 Grande bought in 1978. Had it for 10 years until I had to give it up. Bought my vert just 5 months ago. Back in the saddle again....
