Re: What Mustang Did It To You?
When I was five, my dad won ( yes, won from a radio station ) a Mustang
convertible. My dad says it was candy apple red. Anyway, with a growing
family, they decided to trade it in for something more reasonable. I still
remember running down the street chasing after my dad because I didn't want
him to get rid of the car.
Then, when I got my license, I bought a 1968 Cougar XR-7 with a 302. Loved
that car but only had it a short time.
From there, I always wanted a Mustang but never got one for who knows
whatever reasons, until now, at age 42. It's a 2002 Mustang GT Convertible.
Red with tan top and interior. Love the car! Hope to install a Kenne Bell
twin screw on it come spring time. My daughter is already saying it will be
her car when she gets her license. She is 12.
