Here's a wild ride that's been in just about every custom car mag on the planet! This was however the first time we laid our own 2KooL eyes on it and man, were we impressed! :o siterock.gif tease.gif

We met up with owner Rick Finamore from E. Walpole MASS, at this years Fun Ford In Epping New Hampshire. I have to say, if ever there was a car that came into a show late and caused more 'buzz' we haven't seen it. From the moment I laid eyes on Rick's Monster Custom 66 Mustang Coupe, I was 'puddy'. This was one amazing early year Mustang that was a lock for our 2KOOL 'Feature Rides' section - evey inch of the way!

Rick was a really KooL guy to meet and kept us in stitches, while everyone flocked like Fat kids to Smarties around his 'rad ride'. This car was exceptionally well detailed from front to back and obviously made for one thing only.. "to BLOW PEOPLE AWAY". We've been in contact with Rick and he's sending some details on the car which we'll be adding here shortly for our readers.

Again, great meeting you Rick, and that's ONE "WILD" 2KOOL RIDE! bowdown.gif

I too saw this for the first time in Epping and was very impressed. The older mustangs usually do nothing for me, but this car was awesome all the way. If you ever get a chance to see it in person, pack a lunch you have plenty to admire.
