"My First Car....!"

I was 17 years old and I was taking flying lessons for my private pilot license. My parents would drive me to the school and wait while in my lesson. They had decided that I have to get a job to pay for the lessons. So I found a job working in a supermarket. Since I had to travel by city buses to go to school and work, it was a problem for me. My father had found a used car that I could afford, which would make it easier for me to go to school and work. The car was a 1954 Ford Convertible, black with a very worn out white top. Some person had replaced the tail lights with “bullet” type lights from a Cadillac. I drove the car and I felt a freedom that I could go any place I wanted to. I had the car until I graduated High School, and it was “left” behind when I joined the service in 1964. I have owned other fords over the years, a “Brand New” “68″ Mustang, a 1993 Ford Explorer, and at the present time a 1995 Ford Explorer with 277,*** miles on it. Right now I am drooling over the 2013 Fusion, and antsy about the 2015 Mustang…………..If the 2015 Mustang comes looking like what I’ve seen in “Car and Driver”………all I can say, is I want one………………….GO FORD!

In the world of cars the mustang is my absolute favorite. But there is one thing that this car lacks most of all and that is performance handling. take a look at european cars compared to them we are in the stone ages yes i know the new mustang is wider and lowered also it has independent suspention all four tires, we will wait to see what it can do. Also we have a 5L engine that stock puts out around 450 HP really? how is it smaller engines can dut out the same? what i am trying to say is the mustang is an iconic car and when it first came out it was top of the line, throught the years of mustangs life it has fallen into a rut of terrible design untill the you have the 2005 or newer model. but performance on the track has still been lacking if ford wants to keep up in the world they need to have a faster, lighter and well it has already got the looks down but come on please for the pride of our country put money aside and make something amazing that can show the world what America can make out of its own garage! Thank you
