The 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 is one of the many unforgettable and sensational vintage cars that we have celebrated here several times as it seems not ready to go “out of style”.

Even though the first ever Mustang GT500 had rolled-off production line as far back as 52 years ago, it still gives vintage automobile lovers “chills” till today.

This perception, we believe holds true as a “wire artist” who goes by the name County Fonane from Lesotho area in South Africa recently built this classic beautiful vintage car using only wires.
