May 1970, May Day Parade in New Westminster BC, Canada.

The Musgrove (Ford) Mustangers had a group of cars in the parade. We were participants as my dads 1967 GT-A Fastback was farther back in the pack.

Saw that '69, and that was it....I was 7 years old and it was a dream...which was realized in August 1991 when I acquired a '68 GT500KR (which we still own today)



I would cross paths more than a few times over 4 decades. A article was written about that car in the September 2015 Hemmings Muscle Machines, and my minor history with it.

I saw that article in Hemmings!

Did I hear you are moving to Gig Harbor? I live on Fox Island.

  I'm pretty sure it was in 1966.  Some fellow on the next block rented a 66 GT350H.  Red with gold stripes.  I don't remember if I disappointed due to the automatic trans.  My buddies and I were on our bicycles just a few few away, standing in the street checking it out.  The the guy came out and suggested we "move on".  That guy was a crank anyway.
   Funny thing is, just 3-4 doors down from "Mr  Crank" was a fellow who was dating a high school class mates older sister.  He owned the  67 GT 350 I bought from him, but I never saw that car on the next block.  Must have snuck in and out all the time.
