The Big News on this day:

Reports from Bethel, NY State, came in of hundreds of thousands of youngsters who turned up to hear big-name bands play in a field. About 186,000 tickets were sold and promoters anticipated and promoters are anticipating that around 200,000 would turn up. Most people calculated that the actual number was closer to 400,000. Traffic jams around 8 miles were reported and the festival saw performances from The Who, Jimi Hendrix and a roll call of some of the biggest names in rock music.

MUSIC

AND NOW THE CARS...

‘69 was a vintage year for classics. But we have searched through the archives of some of the coolest Muscle of that year and, in our opinion, the Boss 429 Mustang is probably our favorites that could be purchased:

Why is it our preferred classic? It’s iconic, rare and well, just cool, now let’s look at the tech specs.

The Boss 429 Mustang is one of the most desirable Mustangs, due to the scarcity of the model. A pristine example was sold in 2015 $550,000. Why the scarcity? The Boss’ engine was a couple of inches too wide to fit between a standard Mustang frame and was engineered to compete, competitively, in NASCAR stock races. Only 1358 429’s were ever made. And, if you’re looking for a handy little guide to classic car valuations, you might want to start here

Now let’s look at what you can buy in 2019

The equivalent piece of muscle you can get your hands on now is probably going to be the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500. The Shelby will be available later this Fall.

Sure, the Shelby makes more grunt and speed, but we know which car we would prefer.
