Anyone have any old pictures of or with 71/73 Mustangs either as the subject or in the background that you can share. Maybe some of old newspaper articles or advertisements showing off the 71/73 Mustangs.

Kind of like the "where's Waldo" of shopping centers and street sides.

I think this will create a neat thread but I don't have any pictures to post and as we all well know:

Nice Rex! Don't see too many with side stripes and a solid hood these days.

Good idea for a thread Steven.

Me and my 71 Grande back in 1990 after getting 1st place in the 69-73 Coupe class.I was 20 years old. I just moved to California and still had Connecticut plates on it and I got a trophy for furthest distance traveled. The Mustang show was 2 Blocks from my house.:D

Here's some pics I took at a Mustang Owners Club of Australia (Melbourne, Victoria) concourse in around 1988 or 1989. Back then Left Hand Drive cars weren't allowed to be registered so 99% of the cars pictured are Right Hand Drive:

And lastly a pic of my old 70 Mach 1 staring down at some 71/73's at the same event:

And here's one I stumbled across on eBay, somebody was selling it as an original photograph but I did a screen grab and got it for free...

I am so glad I am not the only one who thought that.

This is a postcard. It was either given to my oldest brother in 1983 when he purchased his reconditioned Chief EZ Liner machine or I picked it up in June of 1983 when he sent me to Toledo Ohio along with another one of his employees to go through the training class at the Chief training center.Its been in my tool box ever since then. I just went out got it and scanned it. I thinks it has a Boss 351 sticker on the fender but its hard to see, and by her attire i figured its from the early to mid 70's, just a guess.

The hood is blacked out like a Boss 351 and it looks like a chrome bumper. Anyone have a pewter Boss in Ohio?

I just love this one. You can tell by the outfit/hair/glasses that it is 'period correct'. The dog dish hub caps. The mis-matched tires (maybe snow tires in the back??). But the best part is the CB antenee. 10-4 good buddy!

I just took my CB antenna off a few years ago when I started my resto. I still have the CB bracket under the dash and have thought about putting it back on, but not yet!
