Machstang70's '70 Mach 1

This car has been in the family since 1978, I had a '70 convertible in 1976. My younger brother bought this in '78.We restored it in '80. We turned it into a race car in '86. It was repainted in '90. I purchased the car from my sister -in-law in '92 after my brother passed. The car has seen many late night street races in the late '70's and early '80's in Long Island, N.Y. It has seen tracks like N.Y. National speedway, West Hampton Dragway(L.I. Motorsports Park, E-town N.J., and now Virginia motorsports park & Richmond dragway).
