Editor's Choice
Nothing speaks the essence of vintage Mustangs like a Light Blue '66 convertible with standard interior and a six-cylinder engine. While Hi-Po fastbacks and Shelby GT350s get all the glory, the basic Mustang convertible was the car that most Americans coveted. That's why Mike Johnson's '66 stood out from the Columbus crowd to earn the Mustang Monthly Editor's Choice award.

But that's not the only reason. Mike's convertible is a clean machine, with beautiful Light Blue paint by Lyons Body Shop. And while it's a basic six-cylinder/automatic, the Mustang is also well-equipped with power steering and brakes, wire hubcaps, and the rare bench seat. In addition to the Mustang Monthly Editor's Choice, the Hilliard, Ohio, resident took home NMRA awards for Sunday's Top 20 Fords and Best Small Body Ford.
