First Car

Well I was just riding my bike to and from everywhere, whether it took me two hours or 5. Long rides for sure, but my parent’s decided that I needed a car. They found this maverick sitting in some one’s garage, rarely driven, brown, 302 with a two barrel, 68k miles, interior was nice except where the large man sat when he drove it. Sold for $800.00 and drove it home. Given I was only 15, my parent’s wouldn’t let me drive…on my own, so when I turned 16, we moved over a city and some one had to drive the car, thus I got my license. That car lasted me till i was 19 when I was looking for a new car, when I drove it up to the dealership, they wanted to give me $1500 for it as a trade in for a mustang…needless to say I quickly accepted.

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
