Ever since I can remember I’ve loved Mustangs. I’ve always dreamed of owning one, although it wasn’t an option for my first car. Ever since I started driving and working, I’ve saved my money. I’m blessed enough that my parents can support me, even in college, and have allowed me to pursue my dream of owning a Mustang by saving every penny I’ve made. After many years and lots of patience, my time finally came. I’d been searching the classifieds for years, but now it was actually time to look for MY car. And the PERFECT car showed up. After what seemed like an eternity, in a matter of hours after first finding the ad, my dream came true. I became the owner of the Mustang of my dreams. We had it shipped to my house and I drove home that weekend to get her. When I saw it for the first time I was speechless. Words can’t describe the feeling. I couldn’t believe it was mine. It was exactly what I wanted – a Race Red 2011 Mustang GT Manual with Brembo Brake Package, Navigation, and HIDs. And it only had 2500 miles on it. It was the car I had dreamed of since the day it came out, and it was now sitting in my driveway, its keys in my hand. I can’t describe the feeling I get from this car. Every time I drive it is literally a dream come true. The glorious 5.0 V8 and 6-speed manual is incredible. Driving it is so much fun that I never want to stop! Half the time I don’t even listen to the awesome sound system…I just listen to the wonderful V8 growl instead. I’m so proud of my car and so glad I finally get to say, “I drive a Mustang.” The car just puts a huge smile on my face every time I see it and drive it. It’s truly my pride and joy. And even though it’s currently my daily driver, I hope to eventually make this car the “weekend car” and keep it forever. Maybe if I’m lucky enough down the road, I’ll be able to get a red ‘69 Mustang Mach 1 to park next to it in the garage. That would truly be a dream come true, but this is more than enough for now. The legend lives!
