351 Mach 1 (Early) Birthday Greetings

I can not wait to surprise her in an hour or so with a present that I’ve been dying to reveal! If anyone calls and spoils the surprise I am so murdering them, and big-time fingers crossed that she likes it and doesn’t get mad at me for going overboard… But I really love her madly and want to get her something grand that both suits her and shows her I think the whole exciting world of her!


(Edit: This gift is a long time coming!)

    Maybe in the Nick Cage remake but the 1973 Mach 1 is featured in the original film by H Halicki!

    Update: Here is the car chase:

    That’s a hot car! I’ve always loved the 69-70 Mach 1′s most of all since they are a muscle-y take on the classic Mustang fastback (my favorite body style), but these definitely have more of a 70′s muscle-car vibe which is very cool as well.

    Enjoy it! 351 Cleveland and not Windsor, I presume (without google, haha)?

    Holy SHIT. That’s SO close to my dream car. My husband would get insane bonus points, after I throttled him for going overboard. I can’t imagine anyone not freaking out in the best way possible if they got that for their birthday!

One Trackback/Pingback

  1. [...] I’m also a little more dirty than usual from getting Caitlin’s 1973 Mach I Mustang (a previous birthday present) ready for summer driving — although she is considering trading it in for something smaller, [...]

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
