Dearborn birthed more than a million Mustang IIs. From 1974 to 1978, Mustang II production rivaled the blockbuster years of 1964 1/2 through 1966. Econobox underpinnings and dismal performance didn't stop Ford's Pintostang from wheezing off dealer lots at a breakneck pace. But while you can't sling a distributor cap without hitting a first-generation pony, Mustang IIs are a rare sight. Why? Because they're all in a Midwestern garage.

St. Killian, Wisconsin's Jeff Scherger may not actually own all the remaining Mustang IIs, but he does have 14. A collector of orphans, Jeff is Dearborn's Angelina Jolie. It seems he won't stop until each of Ford's forgotten offspring that hasn't been poached of its front suspension is in his custody. Jeff's family ranges from a few parts-only hulks to a concours-ready '78 King Cobra. The grabber blue '74 Mach 1 under Jeff in the photo is his first car, while the red one directly behind features a healthy engine and killer suspension. We'd go so far as to call it cool. The black King Cobra in the foreground was purchased in New York two days before our photo shoot. It even came with a trailer carrying a go-kart dressed as a miniature version of itself. Oh, the irony.

Jeff seems like a well-adjusted guy. He doesn't wear polyester, own a Pet Rock, and there's not a scrap of shag carpet in his house. But during the past quarter century, almost two dozen Mustang IIs have passed through his hands. Jeff admits, "I probably need counseling."

Thanks for trying to keep the Mustang II alive. My very first car that I bought was a Mustang II as well. I've owned five in my life time. Cool
