    My first ride was my family's '67 Mustang convertible. My grandfather drove it, then my mother, and I inherited it when I was 15. I worked my first jobs just to raise the money to fix it up. Had the exhaust rebuilt with some engine work and I replaced/fixed many of the other parts myself, from a new radiator and alternator, tubing, wiring to the chrome emblems on the body. I even learned how to do minor body work on this thing, all because I found Carol's design to be gorgeous. When my mother saw the passion I was putting into restoring this beauty, she had the interior restored along with a new canvas top. RIP Shelby, you gave me a cool high school experience.
