In late summer of 2003, not knowing what would transpire in less than a year, we sold our 1998 Harley Davidson Road King Classic after 28 years of riding. In June of 2004 I was building my 3 year old daughter a swing set. I ruptured 2 lumbar discs, which took me down a 4 year path of pain/anguish. In February of 2008, severely depressed and unable to function well, I had a spinal lumbar fusion. After 2 years of intense Physical Therapy, I was cleared to “do anything again “. I was actively searching for a motorcycle again. A close friend told me about a spotless new Corvette that was for sale and very well taken care of listed below book value (a colleague of ours who died of cancer). My wife and I talked about maybe a sports car would be a better idea than a motorcycle again with my back injury. This was on a Saturday. I called her on Sunday afternoon; only to find out she sold it not more than a few hours before. This began my investigation of what sports car to look for. I test drove the Mustang, a Camaro, and a Challenger. When test driving the 2009 Mustang GT I was impressed, the salesman said “I can give you a better price on the 2009, but would you like to drive the new one?” After driving the 2010 Mustang GT, I said “I will gladly pay the extra money!” We ordered the Mustang GT in Sunset Gold, with a black “over the top” stripe (only 415 Sunset Gold were built in 2010). I love it, It is so much fun to drive!
By the way Ford Engineers, it is Very Comfortable for my back (titanium screws, and peek rods that me together ).
