Dont speak too soon Duff! I saw a 69 Boss 429 Mustang for sale at the Fordswap in Belleville, Mi about eight years ago. The guy found it sitting at the end of a dead-end street in Detroit!!! Sat so long outside the hood hinges were froze.Stupid ****s tore the hood up. Jack Roush had just offed the guy$5,000. for just the heads, but the guy refused.

I have to admit.....I don't believe I'd be inclined to part out a Boss, either! I think if I heard of a guy parting out a complete Boss 429, I think I'd have to hunt him down and kill him, just to be sure he'd never do it again.
Nice building, nicer price. BTW, I have buddy in Bay City with a bunch of antique gas station stuff. Crazy bastard, though....hotrodder.....you know the type.

The older I get, the smarter Dad was.

I am not sure what happened to it, but it sure isn't where Dad left it. Dad sold that property a handfull of years ago, and I didn't live here for about 5 years and it was gone when I came back.
