Today's vehicle is a 1967 Ford Mustang. One that Rob Johnson wishes he still owned—a fastback model that the then-17-year-old Johnson bought for $300 at the only used car lot in his tiny Minnesota farm town, just north of the Iowa border. Johnson needed a vehicle in which to escape reality, and the cash he saved from washing dishes at a local restaurant just covered the price of the faded red fastback. The 289 two-barrel pony wore small crumples on both bumpers. It was missing the Mustang logo on its grille. The gas gauge didn't work. But it was a Mustang, and Johnson just had to have it.
