Our First Car Show

After my husband passed away, he last wish was for me to get a new car. So, I bought a 2004 Mach 1. My granddaughter, Alyssa and I decided to put it into our first mustang show. I joined a mustang club and entered. We worked very hard getting her ready for the show. She (my mach) was perfect. We packed our cooler and chairs, cleaning supplies and we were ready. Everyone commented on the car. How detailed the engine and the entire car was perfect. Wanted to know if my husband cleaned it. I remarked, “No, my granddaughter and I did it”. To their surprise, they were shocked. The voting started, and we took first place in stock for 2004. We were very proud and received our first trophy. So, we decided to do it again. A repeat performance, first place in stock for 2004. We received our second trophy. Extremely proud! My granddaughter was 5 when we started. I know my husband would have been very proud. He was a Ford Master Technician and this car was my last gift from him. We have now stopped showing the car known as MomMom’s Mach 1. She is now in the garage, covered up and comes out once a month for a run. It’s about the low mileage the car has and the care. When I am gone she will be Alyssa’s. The legend lives on!

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
