So today I've had my 72 for 20 years exactly. A lot has happened during those 20 years. 
she's seen 5 different sets of rims, has been restored, got a new crate engine, an AOD transmission, a new 3.8 rear end, served as my wedding vehicle, has been to Italy twice, Austria, Hamburg, the Dutch coast an many many more destinations in Europe...

I personally put a little over 235000 kilometers (146000 miles) on it. 
it was featured in three German magazines (once even made the cover), it was used as a background picture on the website of an Australian parts supplier (without my knowledge) .....

the wife is long gone but the Mustang is still there...  

and most of all I found this forum and met a whole lot of awesome people because of her, many from this forum (James, Chuck, Dave, Don, Roy, Rush, Travis, Tim, Eddie ... I hope I haven't forgotten anyone)

she's come a long way but I think she aged well

Isn't that something...front page says '70 Mustang, then in the article it's a '71 and you have a '72 LOL

Yeah, they really screwed that up. The quality of that magazine has been gradually declining for a few years. 
But I’m really happy my car was featured in it because this was the magazine we would all drool over as teenagers (one of them at least! ;) ) and I was even more thrilled because it made the cover.

Chrom & Flammen used to be better, I collected them back in the 80's and 90's.

It's great you made the cover though, congrats!
