  • I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

I thought someone said a while back that he was going to sell the Mustang. Just curious if he did
and where it went?

I heard the same rumor, but haven't heard anything else. Enquiring minds want to know.  :)

It is going to Canada and has been taken off the GLNFCC website. I would say it's gone.

Yes the car went to a fellow in Southern IL. He actually owns a NASCAR team. It almost sounds like it is just a toy for him. There are no immediate plans for the car as far as I know.

Butch said he will ride it out for awhile and maybe put another one together someday.
