    I finally framed a few of my dads photos from back in the day. He influenced me in so many ways.

    November is always hard next week will mark 6 years since losing you to cancer at 66 years young. Way to early.

    Hopefully everyone enjoys the photos

    Mike, That's is so nice to do for your father. Not an easy job being a father. Lots of highs and low raising kids. By your post I can tell he did his job and did it well.
    What ever happened to his 67?

    Dad ran the car "SCCA" all the way up until 1980 and it was sold to a friend who continued to use the car at some point it took a hard off track and was parked. I have tried to find it and had a few leads that led nowhere.

    All great Dads (and Moms)leave a lasting impression on their sons and daughters! That's what it takes to take it to the next level to pass that experience on to their children. My Mom and Dad were the Best!

    you are very fortunate, my dad was never a "car guy" so we could never really connect, I was always working on the cars in my family and my dad could not offer any help or guidance, as much as he would have liked to. Consider it time well spent.
    FWIW 67 Mustangs fastbacks were fairly rare for road racers, any idea of what happened to the car? you may want to try and find it.

    One more I found today in a box while moving my office.

    This one was taken on the straight away at Green Valley Raceway around 1976.
