The boys are asleep

Oh the relief when the baby falls asleep. Twice the fun when you have two, eh Ryan?

A mother pushes a buggy with her two sons across Patrick Street in Cork while the two lads sleep serenely.

The car in the background is what caught my attention in the first place. Do you recognise it?

    Thanks guys, so two answers. I’m not sure, but it reminds me of the car from Bullit. I’m not expert though!

    Another gem Donncha, love the Mustang, Patrick St. looks almost peaceful for some reason, maybe the sleeping children.

    1966 Mustang fastback is correct. Since it doesn’t have a V8 badge on the side, it must have a 6-cylinder engine. I had a ’65 hardtop that I bought new(!). Kept it for about 25 years before the rust got too bad.

    It’s either a 1965 Ford Mustang (or it could be a 1966; it’s hard to tell without seeing the car from the back), probably with a 400 (cubic inch) V8 engine. It’s in fine condition. I had a 67′ Mustang in high school that we used for cruising ….

    Nice shot. At first glance it feels like a bit of time traveling.
