Ah, to be young in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. Joyce Meyers was there for the glory years of the muscle car era, though by the time she graduated high school in 1974, the looming emissions and air quality issues were starting two put a stranglehold on our beloved Mustangs. So upon getting her diploma, Joyce bought one of the last bastions of Mustang performance from the era, this 1972 Mach 1.

Hailing from Independence, MO, Joyce drove her Mach 1 on a daily basis until years later when she married an auto body expert and they tore down and restored the car back to stock. That was in 1987, at which point she kept driving it often, eventually retiring it from the daily grind several years later. Today, the Mach resides mostly in the garage but Joyce takes it to local car shows and cruises, and said, “I take it out to blow the cobwebs out of it every now and then, and I go by myself.” Truly, a girl and her Mustang.

When the 2017 Hot Rod Power Tour rolled into Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City on Saturday, June 10, Joyce brought it out to the kickoff day and that’s where we found her. While Joyce and her Mustang didn’t go the Long Haul on Power Tour this year, retirement is just around the corner so she and her husband are thinking about going next year.
