    Congrats man .
    Hold on to the R if you can .
    That’s a dream garage right there
    That color is simply gorgeous too (best combo with the stripes in my opinion ).

    As always, your pictures our outstanding and that blue is truly beautiful. Can't believe all of this went on in my backyard.

    Hope to see you around town sometime and maybe at the Sac Mustang 6G meetup in February setup by Party Rock

    What a find, and breathtaking color as well! Plus, #68 from Joey Hand?!? OMG. Would love to meet him!

    Also hope to meet you and see the car in Sac. I grew up in Wilton and know Elk Grove well. Small world...

    Why did he not want to take the car, and what do you mean matching vin and chassis? All cars come from the factory with matching vin and chassis

    No they don't. For example, my VIN ends in 0756 but my chassis number is 251.

    I believe what he means by the VIN # is simply that most buyers just get whatever # car rolls off the assembly line. Joey Hand, who piloted the #68 NFTG wanted the #68 car that rolls off the assembly line to be his and that's what happened. Not by luck, but a special request that he was granted.
