My Dream

I was born in May of 1964 so I believe that the Mustang and I have had a special bond right from the beginning. When people ask me what year I was born, I tell them that I am a 64 1/2! I have always wanted to own my very own Mustang but alas, it just wasn’t in the stars for me. So in 2007, I bought a brand new Focus with the intentions of someday tradiing it up for a Mustang. I drove the Focus for a year and took better care of this car than any car I have ever owned. I kept the mileage down to a bare minimum and NO ONE was allowed to eat in my car. Everytime I would take it to the dealership for an oil change, I would ask them if they could put it up on the lift as a Focus and make it come back down as a Mustang. I’m sure they tried really hard to make this happen because everyone at the dealership knew exactly what I was really wanting. After one year, I took my special little Focus back down to the dealership and they gave me back what I paid for it because it was still like brand new. I was able to finally get the car of my dreams because of my wonderful little Focus. I now drive a Candy Apple Red 2008 Mustang GT. My car is absolutely gorgeous and I feel proud to drive a Ford everytime I am in it. I see my little Focus around town from time to time and I think it is even smiling at me and my Mustang when it sees us. Ford ROCKS!!

Susan Bloomer Dreams do come true. I have owned my Mustang convertible since 1974, in fact I am its first and only owner. I still dream of purchasing a new Mustang I think they are so cute and they make a stirring in the blood as no other car can do. My Mustang has never let me down. It is in semi-retirement now but man the miles we have gone together! I can still here echos of the 70's music when I sit in the drivers seat1

I have a son who is currently deployed overseas in the U.S.Army. My son prior to departing for duty had saved his money for years  to buy his dream car, a 2013 Mustang GT. He makes every payment on this car without parents help. After he reported for duty, he has been deployed out of the country, his Mustang is parked in a garage, under a car cover. It gets started once a week and is driven about 70 miles a week to keep everything running right. It gets a bath and goes back under the cover. After looking at the car the other day,I came to the realization that while my son is deployed, his factory warranty the standard 3 year or 36000 mile is just wasting away. I then thought how many other military personnel would be affected with simular situations? Here is the idea, for service personnel who are deployed out of the United States that have a current factory warranty in effect, the warranty should be extended for the length of deployment. Deployments and or duty stations can easily be verified. The mileage part of the warranty would still apply, in the event the vehicle is driven by anyone other than the soldier. This would be a great marketing tool for Ford, and would actually be an honorabile act upon the company. Companies talk about discounts for troops and how they support them, but this is something that would benefit them, and could make the differance in a sale or not. This is truly a way to Thank these Men / Women for thier service to us citizens and our country !
