My First Ford

I lived in Montana for a short time in 1997.I had never owned my own car before.While there,I found a 1974 Gran Torino for 400 dollars.I was lucky because the little lady who owned it only used it occasionally and it only had 49,000 miles on it.The month after I bought it,we decided to come back to Texas.In Montana there is no speed limit on the highway.Imagine driving a Gran Torino through the mountains doing 90 mph.It was so exhilerating.I felt like the queen of the road.We drove all the way bak to Texas and never had a problem with my car.Unfortunately I was back in Texas for 6 months and a drunk driver hit me and totaled my car.It was the best car I ever owned.

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
