Eight random things

A few days or even weeks ago I was tagged by Luc ‘Mindblob’ Debaisieux and Connie Reece for the ‘8 random things’ meme. The meme is sort of similar to one that went around end of last year called ‘5 things you probably don’t know about me’ which I wrote about in December.

So you know I like old school Ford Mustangs (or you don’t but it’s just a way to promote that other more obscure blog of mine) and that I used to play in a band etc etc. Now I thought I’d just add an image from the archives to that first ‘5 things’ list rather than to come up with another 3 items.

So that’s what I did, and it’s also the main reason why it took such a while before I could come back on this meme. This image is a scan of the photo in an old newspaper article and it took me a while to find that, but it seemed like my ideal answer to the tag.

    Kris, I hadn’t “met” you yet when the original 5 things meme was going around, so I was unaware of your love affair w/ the older Ford Mustangs. I spent quite a few years working with my dad in the collector car auction business, so I have a fondness for all of the classic American cars — and the 65 Mustang (or the 64-1/2 year model as the debut is often called) is one of my favorites.

    Great photo! Glad you scanned that and posted it here.

    Yeah it’s a great car… I don’t know anything about the tech stuff of cars, but it just looks good :)

    Hey Kris,
    Thanks for sharing all these (5 things I discovered now as well) and your secret passion, Mustang 65′ blog, I (finally could) spend some time on. Fantastic blog there! Love it really. As you know, I’m a Bullitt (the film) fan… but what you don’t know about me (yet) is that I love vintage cars as well. We’ll talk about it… soon!

    PS : Your determination/passion makes me think about a post I once made. I really like your “out-of-the-box” journey to get a 65′ Mustang.

    Thanks Luc – That’s a very nice comment on I Blog Mustang. Glad to see people like it and recognize some of the passion behind it.

    I wonder, Kris, how old were you when that picture was taken? Doesn’t look that long ago? ;-)

  6. Kris Hoet says:

    Pieter – Funny you should say so. The article dates from September ’95 so about 12 years ago. Not that recent really :)
