From Planted Seeds To Full Bloom

I had my first Mustang at a very young age. It was a Mustang Pedal car when the Mustangs were first coming out. I believe this planted a seed for my love of the car. The first car I purchased on my own was a 67 Mustang coupe with a 289/3 speed. It saddened me when I no longer had it and many years passed of raising my children and I knew one day I would own a classic mustang again. After my 3 children were grown, I decided it was time. I restored a 66 coupe and then read an article about the Texas Lone Star Limited (Bluebonnet Special). There were only 175 made for the Texas district in 1967. I decided I was going to find one. Within 6 weeks I had located one that was to be sold at an estate auction. I researched the numbers to be sure I was correct on what I already knew. A Marti report confirmed it for me. Now, all I had to do was win it. It was in pretty bad shape from sitting in the middle of a field since 1980 and was a 200 6 cylinder. Those two things were actually in my favor as it made for very few bidders. It was so exciting when the auctioneer said sold and I was now the owner. I have now owned it for four years and it has made a wonderful transformation. Of course there is always more that I want to improve. I wanted to keep it as original as possible. I was happy when I was able to repaired the original motor to keep it numbers matching. Now that I am older and having grandchildren, I have started planting seeds of my own and purchased a Mustang pedal car for my first grandson. I can’t wait to see what blooms.
Since then I have purchased another Texas/Oklahoma Mustang Special, a 2006 Stampede Mustang. It is number 18 out of 500 made.
