      Thanks Eric, I suspect the DSLR camera has a lot to do with the image quality.

      Thank you Ted. I'm one of the "helpers" for the car show. So I get a premium parking spot.

      Thanks Bruce. It's funny, when you own a certain color, other colors can be more appealing. I had the 9L SVO for a period of time and I really liked that one. Canyon Red is also one of my favorite colors.....

      • 9L has always been my favorite SVO color...hence, the reason I own a 1C, right?!? Although I still miss my first Fox, which was a 79 Turbo in yellow followed by an 80 NA 2.3L in silver.

          Funny thing is that I had an 80 notch originally yellow with black interior. I repainted it medium blue metallic (aka Dodge Conquest TSi blue). And I swapped the original 2.3 na with a draw thru carb Turbo from a 79 Capri RS Turbo....

          Here is a pic of my 9L:


          And a few scanned pics of the yellow painted blue notch:

          • Not to hijack, but here is a pic of my yellow 79 turbo w/black interior for comparison, too funny the similarity.

            • Awesome, My 80 notch was originally the same color, but with no fancy stripes. It was a basic model, 4cyl/4 speed, no power anything, roll-up windows, etc.

              I remember when the 79-82 cars were common and cheap. Now you hardly ever see any of those egg-crate grill Mustangs.

              • I know I have never seen that stripe package on any other Mustang from that era, but it looked decent on the car. I think that car had dual adjustable mirrors and A/C if I remember right. The replacement '80 hatch I had was a complete stripper, no power anything, no A/C, no center console, only 1 side view mirror and weighed 2840 lbs with me in the car, so ~600 lbs lighter than my SVO.
