    69fastback, DH's June '07 Feature Car





    Welcome back to the Mustang world after a horrible crash that totaled his white 69 Fastback, Craig! Congrats on being selected June's Featured Car.

    • Member Name: 69fastback

    • Real Name: Craig

    • Description of your car: 1969 Mustang Mach 1 (clone)

    • Location: Ada OK

    • Occupation/School: Pilot

    • What is your main use for the car now: Weekend cruiser

    • What would you LIKE to use the car for in the future: I just want to
    cruise around when the weather is good, and maybe attend a few shows.

    • How did you get into cars: I've been into cars since I was about 10 when
    I saw pictures of my dads 66 Mustang, and 68 GTO. Since then I knew that I
    wanted to own an old muscle car.

    • Who or What motivates you to keep improving your car: The random people
    that stop me when I drive it to tell me what an awesome machine it is.

    • Add a short story about anything to do with your participation in the
    hobby or your car here: When I was in high school I got to drive a friends
    69 Camaro, and I fell in love with the way it felt. I like the no power
    steering, rigid feel of the way an old car drives, and I was hooked from
    that point on. I bought my first 69 fastback 5 years ago, and lost it in a
    rollover after swerving to avoid a deer. I searched for 3 years until I
    found this car because the 69 fastbacks have ALWAYS been my favorite car. I think they have the perfect body lines and stance.

    • Mods: i.e. a list of aftermarket engine / suspension / interior /
    exterior / wheels / tires parts that you or the previous owner added: 351W,
    Comp Cams camshaft, Weiand Stealth intake, Holley Street Avenger carb, MSD 6 AL w/ pro billet distributor, headers, Xpipe, Magnaflow mufflers, 4 speed toploader w/ 3.55s out back, Stainless steel front disc brakes w/ Shelby springs.

    • ET times, Dyno Numbers, Awards, Recognition, Race class: I don't plan
    on racing it. It's old and I just cruise it around

    • Purchase: Approximate date. Is there a story behind the purchase? Was it
    your "dream car"? I bought the car in February of this year from a guy in
    Texas. As stated before, I owned another one that was lost in an accident,
    and I loved the car so much, I had to have another. It takes a lot of time
    and dedication to find a classic just like you're looking for, so I took my
    time and waited until the right one came along. It's close to my dream
    car. The only thing that would make it perfect was if it was a BOSS 429,
    but I'm not that rich

    • Future plans with this car or with another one: I plan to finish the
    restoration. The car still needs several things to be complete, and I would
    like to paint in an original color (undecided on which one). Other than
    that, I just plan on driving it and having fun. I don't believe in owning
    museum pieces. I drive my car several times a week, and that's what I plan
    on doing until I'm unable to drive anymore. At that point, I plan on giving
    it to my daughter.

    • Your thanks: Thanks to my wife Carla for allowing me to buy my dream
    car TWICE, and putting up with the money I spend on them. Without her, it
    wouldn't be possible.
