2K05GT's 2005 Ford Mustang GT-350 (T)
I remember as a child when we went to visit my Grandparents home in Omaha I would always go into the garage to look at my Uncle’s 1967 Mustang GT 350 that he bought before he went off to fight in Viet Nam. It was a Gray Metallic color that was unique to the Shelby in 67.

It was July 1972 when my uncle’s plane landed at the airport, we all waited there with welcome back signs and flags, while outside the airport people were protesting the war, it was a stark contrast from the family area. A lot of people looked down on Military service members back then, I was not one of them, I would stare at his service picture that my grandmother hung on the wall, I'd sit there hoping and praying he returned home safe.

When we got home we had lunch, after all the kids went out to help my uncle clean and prep his car, I was so thrilled to be helping, I was the smallest so I was assigned to wash the wheels; after the washing and waxing he starts it up, my heart was racing at the anticipation of finally going to get to live out all those daydreams over the past few years and get to ride in the coolest car I have ever seen.

I got to go first in the front seat, I was “riding shotgun” with my hero driving around town, we were waving flags and I felt so proud, I really admired my uncle; So I built my car as a tribute to that Car and my Uncle back in 1972.
