Had a 68 fastback, all original 302 & ran good. Tranny & rearend needed to be rebuilt though. Decided to give it to my dad & he gave me my 09 GT that I drive today. I was 16 when that happened (19 right now). & my older bro has had his 65 fastback since he was 16 that was passed down from my dad. He's 23 now.



Here's pics of the 2 cars. I told my dad I would buy back the 68 lol my bros is so sick man, currently on jackstands he blew the engine & it's just been parked since.

Nice cars!

I would have bought a classic mustang as a teen but I couldn't afford one. I lived close to HS before I had a car so I walked most days, and would pass a really nice 65 coupe every day - the guy wanted $12k for it...what torture.

My first car wound up being an 89 Chevy Corsica (google it) I bought for $500 from a coworker (sold 5 yrs later for $250). I waited 15 years before actually getting my mustang...so worth the wait! Plus now I have a DD and garage space to work on it.

I got my first Mustang (dad bought it for me for $250) it was a 68 coupe. I was 15 at the time (40 now). The car needed work but drove great. It had a 302 with a 3 speed. Went on my first date with my wife when I was 18 in that car. We're still together 22 years later. Sold the car along time ago, but still have a mustang as seen in my avatar.

Well when I was young the cars you are talking about where not classics just saying I am OLD I had several muscle cars before 1983 when I picked up my 68 coupe by then I was 23 so technically not a teen. I was in the Navy at the time and got it off another guy that had no idea on how to work on cars it would get hot and not start then it might over heat. I traded some stuff for it he was happy to get rid of it. I timed it changed the T-stat and still have it.

I don't really know if It counts as classic but I have 3 cars, 1 is a 98 Mustang that's my DD and then I have a 83 gt that I'm building in the garage and a 79 trans am sitting in storage for my next build. But I just want to build the gt really I Love that car it just looks so sexy in my opinion. I'm currently 17 btw.

My father was nice enough to buy me a 1968 in bad condition. I wanted an old car to work on I was originally looking for jeeps but then I found the mustang and had to have it. I got it when I was 16.

I originally wanted a classic, but didn't have anywhere or any tools to work on it. So I went newer.

Realistically speaking I wont have one till I move out.

Unless my parents change their minds and say
"Yes, we'll allow you to keep this car on our property"

Well I'm 17 and I recently bought my first classic mustang about 2 months ago. It's my first project car, although I can't really work on it until after college. I have a 1976 mustang cobra ii. It's a v6 with a 4 speed, it's blue and white and has a blue interior. It will have a 302 and a t5 transmission eventually, I can't wait to start working on it.Click image for larger version

Parents said I was making a huge mess in the garage and that I can't work on the motor anymore...

I may be able to convince them after I get all the machine work done

That's pretty badass, my brother used to have a 99' that looked exactly like that one, he had v6 and an automatic transmission in his. My dad used to have a white fox body convertible, he also used to have a red fox body notchback, both v6 and automatic. I have a 1994 with a v6 and a 5 speed. And of course my 76' cobra ii

So random financial question...
Senior year.. I'll have about 7k set aside for buying a car...
I've been leaning towards a 69 fb because their prices are only going to keep going up.
The 72 is cool, but it's nt going to escalate anywhere near as quickly as the 69...
What do you guys think?
I'm a sophomore now.

Your going to need double that if you want one that's not a rolling rust bucket lol especially if your looking for a fastback, but really any if the fastback years for the 60s are good investments

Unfortunately it's more than likely going to be a rust bucket with a motor.
There's one fairly close for 6k
Runs and drives, but it's quite rusted...
