Atlanta Classic Cars: Restored 1986 Texas Patrol car turns heads


Scott Munczenski is used to his classic car getting nervous looks from other drivers. 

His 1986 Ford SSP Mustang is a fully restored Texas State Patrol car that took about two years to complete.

“Even thought they don’t use these any more, some people still slow down when they see me,” said Munczenski, a Dallas resident.

Like Munczenski, there are so many people in metro Atlanta who love their classic cars.

From Fayette to Forsyth counties, these beautiful machines can be seen cruising the back roads and highways of this state.
