I'm having writer's block for this month.  I want to talk about how the leaves would be changing and the nights getting colder but this whole summer has been mild.  At least for us up in the northeast.  Usually we would hit the 90s pretty much all of August but we've barely hit above 85 on the hottest days.  definitely some crazy weather.  Don't get me wrong i'm not complaining about the perfect weather we've been having but it certainly doesn't put me in the fall mood.  Normally i would be so sick of the hot weather that i would be begging for some cool winds to break.  This month was supposed to be about yesteryear's mustangs and how the changing of the leaves would signify the dieing off of the older technology.  These days any car show you go to is chock full of S197's and coyotes galore.  The pushrod fox or sn95 is harder and harder to come by.  The new parts aren't coming around that often anymore as more and more coyotes run the streets.  And really, who can blame them?  that's where the big market is now and if it keeps the Mustang going strong why not?  Today though we remember and tribute our older technology brothers with a Pushrod themed Ride of the Month.  Let the best engine win!

I hope old Abraham Zapruder had his camera handy when Troy pulled the 95 out of the garage, rare to see it in the wild!


I kid... gonna have to give this some thought, all are badass cars in their own ways.

Decided that Troy gets my vote, I've inspected the details of the car many times and no stone is left unturned. Even though he needs to drive it more (like I have any room to talk  :rolleyes:  ) it's one hell of a machine.


If only he had shut the damn hood all the way, that would be an awesome pic...
