A Ford Mustang!

Our son stayed an obviously wonderful year as a student at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he studied cybernetics and computer technology from 1998 to the spring of 1999.

As the year neared its end, there was this problem with taking home everything he and his fellow Norwegian students had got and bought during the year. They investigated into different possibilities. The cheapest alternative for their computer, books and clothing etc would be an airlaine transporting container for around 1200 US dollar

I found it very tempting to tell about the price of freighting a whole car in a container to Gothenburg Sweden. The car would easily hold all their goods and when their "goods container " came here, it could even be sold!

Dive into ebay again

I found a street modified 1967 Ford Mustang with a 289 V-8. It had recently been restored by a father/son team for junior to use around Orange County

But he much rather wanted a Corvette and their Mustang went up for sale

Again I bid the highest and got it. But as my son got to meet the seller and drove the car to the shipping forwarder in Huntingdon Beach, he claimed the car would not be for sale when it came here.

Ford Mustang:Nice Car, No Basketcase
Happy Guy

I have "owned" the car for some time untill it has been paid for in full

The Norwegian climate doesn't do California cars well. I had a company thoroughly clean the car and cover it all under and in hidden areas with a high quality rust proofing

These guys told me they had never seen an original 30 + + years old so totally clean and rust free

Sorry it is no longer mine.

It stays in the family though.

And my very early hot rod period doesn't brush off easily

I had to find myself a new MGB
