As a follow-up to post #7. We now have a name to go along with the picture. Daniel Cameron USAF Reserves. "Open house at Edwards AFB. Me and my assigned Mustang. This was about 1982."

Through a few communications yesterday, Officer Cameron shared his experience with the car and the day that picture was taken. I stumbled on a second picture taken that day as well. Notice what is in the background.

Regarding Officer Cameron's memories of the car: "I know it was so light one day while responding to an incident at well over 100 MPH it went airborne in the wind and I changed lanes while in the air."

Regarding the two photos we have at the open house at Edwards AFB: "We were in the hanger with the U2 and the SR-71. The flight crews got mad at us because the Mustang drew more people than their planes did!"

Great shot of a formerly hairy stretch of road! Taken on CA Hwy 1 near Devil's Slide in San Mateo County. The area is completely different now, they moved the roadway inland and through a new tunnel to bypass the sheer cliffs along the ocean there.

Exactly correct per the officer in the photo, himself! Officer Max Santiago: "I was standing next to the lead Mustang working out of the SF CHP Area. The rear Mustang was operated by an Officer out of the CHP Redwood City Area."

Officer Santiago is also the one in the photo below however he was unable to confirm the unit number of this '82.

The past few weeks have been very rewarding in terms of making contact with many retired CHP officers who drove the '82's in service, putting names to faces and receiving a few new photos.

The following is from retired officer Rich Laurie Garcia:

"This is an 82 Mustang in my driveway. They were fast but scary at high speed. Suspension was stiff and you felt every bump 5 times the norm. Our Area Office (Contra Costa) would not let you drive them in the rain because they were so squirrelly."

Rich was kind enough to share this, new to the hobby, photo:
