AJC Classic Cars: Cartersville man’s ‘65 Mustang filled with memories

Gregg Cofield’s 1965 Ford Mustang convertible is more than just a car.

For the Cartersville man, the completely restored beauty is a nod to his childhood.

“This car has been in my family for a long time,” he said. “The kids would drive it when we turned 15 and you couldn’t wait to get your turn. I’m so glad I was able to buy it from my parents and to have restored.”

Cofield, a senior account executive with Elanders Americas, said he hopes to pass along the car to his two young daughters when they get older.

“I hope it stays in the family,” he said.
