Exploring America

Celebrate Thanksgiving in France

This year, Thanksgiving will be Thursday, November 26. For several years now, I have used to cook a meal for Thanksgiving. It's a good way for me to make two of my passions: American culture and (American too) cuisine. What is Thanksgiving? On the fourth Thursday of November in the United States (and the second Monday of October in Canada), Americans celebrate Thanksgiving (Action de Grâce…

My project

Electrical problems and heating box

Sunday, Aymeric came home to give me a hand to work on the Mustang. Specifically, we wanted to fix an electrical problem and install the restored heater box. We started with the electrical problem. Why are the rear right light, brake and turn signal not working? And why do the indicators not emit sound or light in the compartment? We thought the steering column harness was…

Pascal and his 2012 MCA Mustang

Since the age of 14, Pascal has had a passion for cars in general, and the Mustang in particular. He lives in Normandy, in a village between Dieppe and Rouen, and today, at the age of 54, owns a magnificent limited edition Mustang coupe "2012 Mustang Club of America". The model may speak to the blog's older readers, as we already had the opportunity to present…

The little treasures of our Mustangs …

It has been an awful long time since I posted any news about my project. While working in the garage the last few days, I came across the few "little treasures" I had found in the car while taking it apart. The majority had slipped between the glove box and the dashboard (it's crazy how much you can find back there). Nothing transcendent: a Starpie marker,an…

Stefan and his ’65 coupe

As a child, Stefan admires the Mustangs he has the chance to meet with his dad. He then has in mind to own one, later. And probably a 65 for two reasons: it's the year of his birth, and it's the "original Mustang" as he saids. It was finally in 2017 that Stefan set out and selected a Mustang that met his various criteria: a 1965…

Where to eat breakfast in Los Angeles?

You are going to visit Los Angeles and plan to stay there for a few days … This is the opportunity to taste some American specialties in an Angelino atmosphere. I found two places that are, in my opinion, essential for a successful breakfast! The Original Pantry Cafe A restaurant open since 1924, and which has never closed since, The Original Pantry Cafe is now owned…

Francesca and her ’66 GT coupe

On the blog, I published a number of articles where the passion for the Mustang is passed on from father to son, or, in some cases, from father to daughter. This was the case for Jade, for example, with her Mustang II, but it is also true for a number of other enthusiasts who can be found in the blog archives (note, the English version of…

My playlist for visiting L.A.

During my first trip to California, I had prepared a playlist. I had landed in L.A. to reach San Francisco by route 1, all in just over two weeks. This playlist, I share it with you today because I find it interesting enough to visit L.A. It will surely evolve over time, but here is the first version, which is already 6 years old… Positively 4th…

Los Angeles, city of Angels

I fell in love with this city long before I set foot there. Many ask me why, how it is possible, but I have no answer. After several years and a few trips there, the passion never left me; so I decided to share my enthusiasm for the City of Angels through the lines of this blog. A cosmopolitan city With almost 4 million residents (and…
