Why have I not blogged about Carol Marini yet? I read about her and her Hardtop V-8 Mustang about six months ago, and yet I still haven’t put her in the hall of fame. Well, I’m about to fix that right now. Carol bought her Mustang way back in 1968, and let me tell you, the two of them have been through some tough times together. The car has had almost everything replaced or rebuilt, and even survived an engine fire.  And Carol has been through a divorce and a world of financial pain, even getting caught up in a ponzi scheme and almost being homeless. But she stuck with her car the entire time, and somehow, her car stuck with her, and that is what we are all about here. Celebrating those relationships. Carol, I really hope things are going better for you these days. How is the car holding up?

Update: Carol is going to be taking her car on a trek on the Pony Ride in April to help celebrate the Mustang’s 50th Anniversary. If you are intersted in helping sponsor her journey, you can contact her at: cmarini68@yahoo.com

    Pretty cool! Congrats to Carol. Interestingly enough, just last week I was talking with a friend of mine about the Mustangs Across America drive because he is the lead coordinator. I will likely be meeting up with the group during their overnight stay in the Phoenix area, so there’s a good chance I will be meeting Carol. Looking forward to it.

    Tyson, if you do meet Ms. Marini, get some photos with her and her Mustang. I’m sure many folks would love to see it.
