Learned a great deal about Mustang culture and Mustangs themselves last week in Charlotte, but the identity and owner of this amazing race-prepped coupe escaped me.
I assumed these were Steeda Autosport's cars - based on proximity to their giant trailer - until they explained that their cars were elsewhere in the main display areas.
But these pit-garage beauties certainly did not go unnoticed by us! The School-Bus Yellow example was an instant favorite.
It is intense in the flesh, and based on the less-popular Notchback Coupe versus the fastback that was preferred by Shelby and most other go-fast teams of then and now.
Even so, its extra rigidity and street-able stance make it a stand-out -- even in a Charlotte Motor Speedway infield that brought more than 1500 customer and vendor Mustangs together in one place.
