Mustang Dream

My name is Alyssa. Nobody special. Just a small town girl living in Oregon. But, I have big dream. It is something I have dreamt about since I was in the 4th grade when I was just cutting out pictures in magazines and saw it. The Mustang. Since then, I have been just about the biggest female Ford enthusiast you have ever met. I have my wall covered in a collage I made all from Mustang Monthly pictures, a calender of Mustangs, binders with pictures of my favorites, and lots of friends tired of hearing about the latest Ford and Mustang updates. When I saw the 2011 Mustang my jaw dropped. 31 mpg?! That’s better than the Honda I drive now! I freaked out. And so my dream, my plan, my goal came to be. In 2013 I will go into the dealership and drive off the lot with my 2011 v6 mustang. I have looked into the money I need to be making. Although others have doubted my ability to have a job and make enough to pay for the monthly payment, gas, and insurance, I do not. I am aware of the difficulty of getting a job (I’ve applied to near 40 in the past year), but I’ve never wanted anything so much in my life. And it will happen. I will get the stylish, reliable, (and now) practical car I need in college. Thank you Ford, for being my inspiration to never give up on something I believe in.

I have a son who is currently deployed overseas in the U.S.Army. My son prior to departing for duty had saved his money for years  to buy his dream car, a 2013 Mustang GT. He makes every payment on this car without parents help. After he reported for duty, he has been deployed out of the country, his Mustang is parked in a garage, under a car cover. It gets started once a week and is driven about 70 miles a week to keep everything running right. It gets a bath and goes back under the cover. After looking at the car the other day,I came to the realization that while my son is deployed, his factory warranty the standard 3 year or 36000 mile is just wasting away. I then thought how many other military personnel would be affected with simular situations? Here is the idea, for service personnel who are deployed out of the United States that have a current factory warranty in effect, the warranty should be extended for the length of deployment. Deployments and or duty stations can easily be verified. The mileage part of the warranty would still apply, in the event the vehicle is driven by anyone other than the soldier. This would be a great marketing tool for Ford, and would actually be an honorabile act upon the company. Companies talk about discounts for troops and how they support them, but this is something that would benefit them, and could make the differance in a sale or not. This is truly a way to Thank these Men / Women for thier service to us citizens and our country !
