Love at first sight, or just a means to get from A to B?

Yes love at first sight . I was saving for a 1967 Mustang Fastback GT 500 Eleanor for 20 years but when I saw this car with the Cervini body kit it just looked awesome. I gave a deposit on it there and then.

Lots of muscle under the hood — 4.6 litre v8 producing a very impressive 350bhp

Petrol head or Sunday driver?

Car is mainly a weekend car, especially at 14mpg!

Dream drive in dream location?
