History
"Ron" a good friend located ACME WA 98220, liked my silver 2004 Mustang GT, which had a dealer-installed "Bullitt Appearance Package" (Mustang & Thunderbird Accessories 1999-2004 Cat.), which I called the "Silver Bullitt". When he looked into buying an SN-95: "Gunnar, there are so many options and sub-types I don't know which one to choose". Suggested the 2001 Bullitt. He took the advice, bought #3004 S California (see register, Ron not IMBOC member)). The Silver Bullitt missed it's mark, eventually, ended up in 3 feet of icy water (Dec. 2013). Ron tried to sell to me #3004 summer 2013, wasn't ready. He said he sell only to me. Sold #3004 to me Feb. 2014, $13K, 25600 odometer reading. Factory stock configuration. Met an IMBOC member Nick Rednick from So.Cal ... who is a relative of my supervisor (City Engineer, Anacortes WA) at work ... Nick invited me to join IMBOC, Las Vegas. Would not have gone without his invite, I think. Took #3004 to 50th/Vegas, made friends with ya'll. Now I do not want to sell Gretta. Love my BUM's..."Bullitt United Members". FUTURE PLAN my nephew Adam, 15 yo, located ANTELOPE ACRES CA 93536 will inherit this car. Took him to see the movie car at LeMay auto museum. Adam knew more about the movie chase scene and the 1968 GT390 than did. Surprised me. Planning to take him to learn from Griggs Racing, Sonoma. Driver and mechanic education.

Thank you
