It all started when I was 6 years old and my uncle took me for a ride in his baby blue 1967 mustang convertible. It had white leather seats and a white top. We would ride in it to church every Sunday with the top down. From that first ride on, I was hooked on Mustangs. I had always been raised a Ford guy. Everyone in my family drove Fords and only Fords, so a Ford was all I ever intended to own. As I got older, I couldn’t get enough of the Mustang world, and when I was 15, I got two jobs so I could save up for my first car. My parents tried to talk me into buying something “affordable and practical,” but that was not going to happen. In October of 2006, I started car shopping, and found a gorgeous black 1999 Mustang at a small dealership in Philadelphia. I decided that I had to have it. I didn’t even have my drivers license yet, but i talked my mom into driving me to Philadelphia to get it. And I bought it that night. It was torture looking at it in the driveway knowing that I couldn’t drive it alone for another month, but I managed. And the day that I got my drivers license, I was free. Me and that car must have drove hundreds of miles that day. It was the best feeling in the world. And over the next two years, me and that car went all over the east coast. But unfortunately, when I went to college, I couldn’t take it with me so I was forced to sell it. That was the worst day of my life.
After college, I joined the army, and once I was stationed in Georgia, I decided that I needed to get another mustang. So I began car shopping and found a gorgeous performance white 2007 Mustang GT. I had to have it! So in between night shifts at work, I made the painstaking 3 hour drive each way for three days in a row until I finally got the car. I was running on no sleep for 72 hours but I couldn’t even think about sleeping because I was so excited about my second mustang! And ever since I got that car, I couldn’t have been happier. I am now looking to buy a classic mustang to restore. So here’s to a 15 year love affair with Ford Mustangs, and many many more years to come.
