YAK Car Pic of the Day

.

.

Today we break a cardinal YAK rule and feature a car photographed through a chain-link fence. Why? Because, well, how often do you come across a Mustang II Ghia these days? This one’s a 1977 or ’78 — there wasn’t much to distinguish between the two. As a matter of fact, there weren’t many changes in the Mustang II from when it was introduced in 1974 until its final year in 1978, an end which couldn’t come quick enough for many Mustang fans who rued the day when Ford introduced those ’74s, which were based on the — gasp! — Pinto, complete with a four-cylinder engine. Horrors! They were neat little cars; but were they really Mustangs? Um… no. This one was found a while ago penned in on Buffalo’s East Side. Here’s a link to the 1978 brochure — see them in all of their 1970s silliness.
