Car nut Zach Taylor had always wanted a 1968 Fastback Mustang. So after seeing one advertised on Craigslist in summer 2017, the Mustang superfan naturally arranged a viewing. But when Taylor arrived in North Carolina to see the car, he noted a number of unique quirks. The car was resting inside a chicken shed, for one thing – and it had certainly seen better days. Yet Taylor’s biggest surprise came when he spotted human remains on the passenger seat.
This insane story could, of course, have happened to anyone, as the appeal of the Ford Mustang has endured for decades. When the first so-called “pony car” was launched in 1964, in fact, it shot out of the starting gate to become one of America’s most-loved automobiles. There’s even a National Mustang Day – celebrated each year on April 17.
