On May 20, 2012, I left my home state of New Jersey and traveled south to Delaware to attend the 29th Annual Spring All Ford Show held at Sheridan Ford in Wilmington. The show was sponsored by the First State Mustang and Ford Club.
As soon as I arrived, I met Charles Chubbs, who was showing a 1966 Ford Thunderbird Town Hardtop. He purchased the car in 1981 from an older gentleman who decided he was going to discontinue driving. With the exception of some cosmetic repairs, such as a paint job, the car is all original. Though it has been painted, the car maintains its original color—honeydew yellow—and only has 70,000 miles on it.
During the show I noticed a bit of hullabaloo surrounding a 2007 Mustang GT Steeda. All the attention this car was getting was well deserved as it is one of only 95 made in 2007. Once things had settled down, I spoke to Alec, who was at the show with his uncle, Adam Alimonti, the owner of the car. Alec told me his uncle was shopping around for a car for his girlfriend when he saw this Mustang. It was love at first sight. Adam purchased it on the spot for himself. His girlfriend had to wait a bit, but she did eventually find an Audi for herself.
Adam has modified the car by adding carbon fiber and chrome. This car is rare in that it is as pretty underneath the hood as it is on the exterior.
