Muscle Car Madness: 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1

Click Here to Begin Slideshow The sound could shake dentures out of a mouth. The engine cackles as if lined up at a drag strip Christmas tree, so I’m not surprised when Luke Chin tells me the police have stopped him in the past for exceeding the maximum ‘loud exhaust’ violation. “Fortunately, I had two new mufflers in the trunk, so the cop let me go with a warning,” he recalls. It snorts to life with a throaty rumble that could be construed as God’s implacable anger. A lick of flame bursts from the chrome mouth of the exhaust and I’m mesmerized. “Driving it is therapeutic.” That is how Luke describes driving his 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1. The car, a bulk of Herculean muscle, is painted in a shade of sinister black. “When I bought it, the paint had worn its replacement black from its Royal Maroon, so I repainted it jet black,” he explains. Clive Branson gave an in-depth interview about Luke's majestic muscle car, you can read it in its entirety on Hot Rod Hotline!
