My First Car

My name is Stanley Anderson from Hattiesburg, MS. My first car was a 1964 Ford Custom 500. I bought it from my cousin for $75.00. It was a strip down. The only body it had left was from the firewall to the back of the front seat and no doors. It had lights and a windshield and was street legal. It had a 352 CID with a 4V carb that would get stuck in the wide open position when I floored it. I had more fun with that car and drove it to school every day except when it rained. I have been caught in the rain on several occasions and as the windshield wipers wiped the outside my buddies would wipe the inside. Lots of fun memories from that car. I have been a Ford fan ever since. I have owned a 1950 Ford sedan, a 1974 Torino, and I am on my 3rd Mustang. Ford fan for life.

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
