#11: One little red Mustang

One July 12th 2005 a guy named Kyle MacDonald trades one little red paperclip for a fish-shaped pen. About 14 trades and one year later he got a house this way. Fascinating isn’t it? Now I’ve always been thinking this could be my next possible venture to try to achieve my goal: getting my own ’65 Mustang.

After looking into buying one, building one from the ground up or selling a few pixels… here’s trial number 11. What I was thinking of doing is to trade things, but unlike Kyle I wouldn’t start with a red paperclip – got to add at least 1 orginal element don’t you think :) – but I’ll start with a little red car. And also, I will only trade for items that relate to classic cars somehow to keep it a good fit with the content on this blog.

The little red car I’m hoping I can kick this off with is also a Ford, although not a Mustang. This one is a 1974 Gran Torino and more specifically, it’s the one from Starsky & Hutch. I think it’s a 1/18 but it doesn’t say so on the car. I still have the original box as well lying around somewhere :)

We’ll see what happens. You can contact me on mustangblog AT hotmail DOT com.

    That’s ok Andrey, as long as you reference where you got the info from, just like I do to others. And of course if you let me have your car, you can do with my content whatever you want ;)

    Good luck with your fastback, it looks nice.

    Looks a bit like a Mustang II to me! Or could it be that I am a bit biased since I own a 76 Mustang II?
