Gouldy’s ’89 Mustang Police Interceptor
It’s The Ultimate Power Trip
By Jim Smart
Photography: Tom Rounds
Pennsylvanians Tom and Donna Gouldy enjoy a good life because they have consistently met their goals along the way. A case in point is this ’89 Special Service Mustang Police Interceptor acquired from the Florida Highway Patrol. It took the Gouldys more than a year to nail down this one, but it was worth it. The Gouldys bought this Mustang through a dealer in Syracuse, New York, who had purchased the car at a Florida auto auction.
When the ’89 was doing pavement duty in Florida, it was known as Unit No. 1526, stationed at Troop H in Madison. Since the Florida Highway Patrol will not sell these retired cars in the FHP colors, the car was repainted in white, and then
sent off to auction. It had just 72,000 miles showing.
The Gouldys decided to restore the SS Mustang back to its as-delivered condition. The restoration took the expertise of Glazier’s Mustang Barn in Souderton, Pennsylvania, where the bodywork and painting was done. What discouraged the Gouldys’ during the restoration was the pricing and limited availability of Fox-Chassis Mustang parts. What surprised them was how many of the parts are obsolete today, just 10 years after the car rolled off the Dearborn assembly line.
Without a doubt, a Mustang such as this has a wealth of memories from its time as a Florida cop car. The Gouldys’ found a spent 9mm shell in the trunk, a mud dauber’s nest on the fuel tank and gasoline receipts (with enabled them to talk with the trooper who drove the Mustang) and more.
Taking the wheel of a ride such as this is the best part about owning an SS Mustang. It’s a real road car with a five speed, 5.0L H.O. performance and extraordinary handling. The 3.08:1 axle ratio allows excellent acceleration, coupled with a top end of 160 MPH. Those blue cooling system hoses are specific to the SS Mustang. They are designed to take extremes of heat and pressure that come with long idle periods and sudden blast onto the super slab. Other SS Mustang features include a relocated remote deck-lid release, an engine oil cooler, reinforced front floor pans, a single key locking system, an auxiliary transmission cooler (automatics only), a heater hose inlet restrictor, and black cast aluminum wheels.
The Gouldys’ also enjoy a 1965 Mustang convertible clad in Caspian Blue, that’s driven occasionally as Pennsylvania weather permits. And this brings home a point. You can have it all when you’re committed to excellence, preserving history and the finer quality called special performance.

Greetings Tyler and to all CVMC members!
This is an excellent question Tyler. The answer is actually a combination of all the scenarios you mentioned. Many times concepts vehicle designs are driven from upper levels of management when a specific theme or style of vehicle is desired, such as the GT90, Mach III, Tremor, or the Indigo. These are the vehicles you would normally see at the large international auto shows.
Then there are vehicles such as the Boss Mustang that was conceived from a PR idea to have a head to head challenge with Chevrolet with their hottest Camaro.
The Mustang Super Stallion was an idea that John Coletti came up with to showcase Fords ability to use alternative fuel (in this case alcohol) in a high performance application.
There are also some vehicles in our fleet that were conceived in 'freeform style' or as you put it "I would really like to see a _______". Our latest project, nicknamed Lightning Bolt, is a Ranger truck with an F150 Lightning power train and chassis and is a good example of this.
Finally there are the vehicles that are driven by public demand for increased performance. More horsepower, superior handling, improved braking, etc. are essential to enthusiasts and racers. The progression of Cobra R Mustangs from 1993, 1995, and 2000 are great examples of this.
Whatever the rational for developing concept or show vehicles, the basic intent is always to highlight our great products to polish the Ford oval.
See you all next month! Drive smart and drive safe.

Super Cruise To Manassas, Va.
By Tony Hall
June 15, 2002
June 15th was a fantastic day for a cruise. We met at the Holiday Inn (formerly know as the Howard Johnson’s) on Parham Road at the I-95 interchange at 3:30pm. Those participating were Billy & Kim McDaniel’s in their AC Cobra Replica, me in my 1995 SVT Cobra, Rusty Wiseman (he rode with me), Laura Thompson in her 2001 Mustang, Ben & Cynthia Brown in their 2001 Mustang Bullit, Tom Enroughty in his 1988 ASC McLaren Mustang, Tom & Katie Harlow in their AC Cobra Replica & another Ac Cobra Replica and Richard & Mary with their Corvette from the Richmond Corvette Club.
Like I said the weather was perfect. We took off up I-95, the traffic was heavy but moving along at or above the speed limit. The trip went by fast. Along the route I had Rusty hanging out of my window to get some pictures of the group going up the road. Little did Rusty know but if he dropped my camera I was going to hit the Eject button.
The drive took about an hour and a half. As we rolled into the Cruise In, the place was already full. But, we found a few place’s to squeeze into. There must have been at least 17 AC Cobra’s there. Most of them were kit cars but I think there was a real one there too. There was at least that many Mustang’s there too.
There was your usual number of well maintained and beautiful Street Rod’s, Muscle Car’s & Antique’s. We even saw an old Pink Thunderbird with a Rumple Seat in the trunk.
We passed out every Show Flier we had (Kenny, we need more fliers). We also, ran into some members of the NCRMC passing out their fliers for the up coming MCA National Show in Fairfax, Va. We introduced ourselves and talked for a while. I’m looking forward to seeing them again at the MCA National.
I would like to thank everyone who participated in the Super Cruise. I hope we can have another one in August to another part of the state.
By Bob Overbey
were 389 vehicles, with lots of new cars I hadn't seen before. There were only
3 antique mustang convertibles, an abundance of antique coupes and
numerous late models including Cobras, SVT's, a Bullet edition and a Jack Roush Mustang (WOW).
Our club participants and their awards were:
Kenny Fischer - 1st place with his 1965 Fastback
Nellie Fischer - 1st place with her 1989 LX
Bob Overbey - 1st place with his 1967 Convertible
A.C. Harris - 1st place with his 1965 Fastback
The cruise back to Richmond was enjoyable, the shrimp, oysters, crab cakes, etc. at Nick's was as good or maybe a little better than usual. When I left Nick's, Kenny, Nellie, Jason and Marcus were still eating. Let's hope they didn't get lost again on the return trip home.
Patrick Henry High School Show
By Carroll Lipscombe
Another beautiful day in Virginia and yes another great Car Show. The place was Patrick Henry High School in Hanover County.
The show was sponsored by the Hanover Community Center, Inc. The show was a big success. 175 beautiful cars attended the show.
CVMC members made out very well at the show. Ben & Cynthia Brown won 2nd place in their class with their 2001 Mustang Bullit. Carroll Lipscombe won 1st Place in his class (original antique) with his 1964½ Mustang Convertible.
Congrats to Carroll, Ben & Cynthia. Way to go!
Bon Air Parade
By Tony Hall
May 11, 2002
It was a beautiful May day for a parade. You just couldn’t ask for anything better. We met at the Bon Air Presbyterian Church. CVMC had a good turn out. Seven members made it to the parade. They were Llew Stakes, Nigel Harris, David Koogler, Jimmy Norwood, Bob Overbey, Nancy Overbey and myself.
While we were waiting for the parade to get started Llew looked down at his right rear tire and noticed that it looked a little low. I leaned over and low and behold Llew had a piece of wood sticking out of the tire. Yes, folks you heard me right. A piece of WOOD!
As the time was near for the parade to start we had to pull a pit stop CVMC style. Llew pulled out his jack and spare tire. I got my trusty ACME Patented Lug Wrench. Llew had that car jacked up and tire changed in no time flat.
The parade started on time and there was a good crowd as we wound our way through Bon Air’s windy narrow streets. If you like old Victorian Style Homes then Bon Air is the place to go.
The parade took about a ½ hour to 45 minutes to complete. We all had a great time as usual and Llew didn’t have any more flats.
Thanks to everyone who participated.
CVMC Annual Summer Splash!!!
Yes folks it’s that time again for the CVMC Summer Picnic & Pool Party. So, break out those bathing suits and beach towels. Dust off those Jimmy Buffet CD’s. It’s TIME TO PARTY!!!

How do I get there you ask. Go to the intersection of Midlothian Pike & Courthouse Road. Go south on Courthouse Road until you get to the light at Hull Street Road. Continue south on Courthouse Road until you get to Qualla Road. Take a right onto Qualla Road. Drive about 6 miles on Qualla Road until you get to an intersection with a four way stop at Spring Run Road. Continue through the intersection until you get to Donegal Drive, which is your second road on your right. Take a right onto Donegal Drive and Don Smith’s house is the second house on the left. 12431 Donegal Drive. In case you get lost Don’s phone number is 790-1211.

We had income and deposits of $1850.00. This gave us a balance of $3978.49. We had expenses of $262.94. This gives us an ending balance of $3715.55.

Tom Tignor has contacted Tony and told him that Mustang Bill will be closing out and be gone by the end of the summer.
