It All Started With A 2000 Mustang...

I come from a family that likes Hondas, Toyotas and some Chevrolets but I was different. I remember as a kid I would always stare at Mustang on the road. I was young but I had an eagle eye for them. I wished to have one one day. When it came time to get my first car, at 16 back in 2000, I was sadly dragged to a Honda dealership and then a Chevrolet one by my parents. I stood my ground and said “No! I will just save up and buy myself a used car.” I was expecting just that. I was going to get a job and save up to buy a car I wanted. But somehow, they were convinced and we went to go check out Ford, specifically the Mustang! I did not need convincing but I worked hard to convince them it was a great car and it paid off. I tried pushing the limit by going for a GT but they said it was too much power for me. So I ended up with a very nicely equipped 2000 V6 Mustang. I loved that car. I loved it so much that I got my brother, sister and EVEN father into it. My father would always sneak out of the house in it and later deny it with a guilty smile! Some great years passed and I had some great memories but it was time for a new car. I sold my Mustang and purchased a brand new 2005 F250 Lariat CCSB with the 6.0 PSD. I did not need to convince the folks again since this was my purchase with my money. Man the power on that thing is crazy and I loved the look! I did get carried away though and lifted it 10″, put some big wheels and tires, exhaust and CAI. By the way, this Ford my father ALWAYS asks to borrow it! Remember how I said I got my brother’s into Mustangs? Well, when it came time for my brother to get a car, in 2006, where do you think they went? Straight to a Ford dealership! Guess which car? A 2006 Mustang! Not just a Mustang but a GT! We got the mod bug so I drew out a design of what we were going to do to my brother’s car aesthetically and performance wise and made it happen. So there you have it, 3 Fords in the family, but one sold. But My Ford Story is not over. I love my truck and I loved the performance of my brother’s GT and I really missed my Mustang. So much that I just could not resist. Shortly after my brother got his GT, I found a car, I tested it and I bought it. A 2004 Mystichrome Cobra! Mod bug continued with this car as well. So can we say Family of Fords!? And our stable is still growing….My sister wants a lifted F-250, like mine, or a Mustang GT!
