While cruising down the road in central Florida, Tom Cotter spots a familiar-looking pair of GT-package headlights. Languishing in a pile of leaves outside the owner’s house is a moss-ridden relic of the early pony-car craze—a 1965 Mustang. Originally a project car for the owner and his son, the car started the process of becoming one with the lawn after it got its hood smashed in. The owner’s hopes that his grandson would take up the cause proved fruitless. But when Tom wanders out back to peer into a garage, he discovers another titan of Ford muscle. Hiding in the shadows is none other than a 1970 Shelby Mustang GT500 convertible, and as luck would have it, the owner is eager to share the car’s story.
