CB: I grew up in New Hampshire and went to college at Towson University in Maryland and my hunt for warmer weather finally landed me in South Carolina. I always loved cars and thought your vehicle should match your personality. I can still remember a debate with my mom when looking for a car during college.

Magazine project cars have a notorious tendency of never being “finished” according to their initial, stated goals. There are a lot of reasons for that, ranging from pure laziness to lack of ongoing interest, lack of money, or mid-project mindset changes.
All in all, we had an amazing time at the Mustang show and the Winter AutoFest by Carlisle Events. The show was huge and had something for everyone, so it’s one event I plan on adding to my calendar next year.
The weekend of February 25-28, 2016 saw the 19th Annual Mustangs & Mustangs: Legends Havin’ Fun car show, hosted by the Imperial Mustang Club of Polk County and held in part with Carlisle Winter Auto Fest at the Sun N Fun Lakeland Linder Airport in Lakeland, Florida.
2015-where do I begin? A year ago I was working on getting all the parts for my car’s restoration as Mustang Monthly’s Project Road Warrior. I had done an engine swap before and painted the car so I thought I knew what I was in for, and this time I had all new parts so it would be easy, right?…
Our Project Road Warrior 1965 Mustang coupe’s maiden voyage, barely after starting for the first time, was to hit the road from South Carolina all the way to Las Vegas for the 2015 SEMA Show.
If you’ve followed the web and Facebook postings we’ve done on Project Road Warrior, our ’65 Mustang coupe, you’re probably aware that the car is finally road worthy! For its test-by-fire, we entered it into the Goodguys Road Tour that goes from Loveland, Colorado to Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The previous story demonstrated how to install a FAST EZ-EFI 2.0 electronic fuel injection (EFI) system on a 351 Cleveland, replacing the existing four-barrel carburetor (“EZ Does It,” page 46). The point of the article was that modern technology has made it brutally simple to replace a carburetor with computer-controlled, closed-loop fuel injection, which results in better mileage, drivability, and cold-start manners.
Look closely at the photos that Janette Semerdjian sent us with her 1965 Mustang coupe, then watch the video. You’ll notice the steering wheel is on the wrong (right) side, and she’s driving on the wrong (left) side of the road into on-coming traffic!
