My Dream Car

At the age of 13, my dad introduced me to the Mustang by showing me pictures of his 1968 GT/CS. Which he sold before I was born. He then bought me my first model car, a 1970 Boss 302. I was hooked. I assembled many more mmodels of Mustangs over the years. I had a couple of close calls for buying my Mustang, but those times were not meant to be. In 2013, the time was right. I brought home a 2006 Mustang GT, in Legend Lime. The funny part of the story of how Siren became mine, I stopped to look at a 1996 Mustang GT at a local Ford dealer. I thought it was unusually old model to be on the Ford lot. It only had 55,000 miles on the clock. I couldn’t get financing on that old of a car. The salesman and I got to talking about other cars. They had many that I liked. We looked at the 8 newer used Mustang GTs on the lot, and I really liked the Legend Lime. We did up the paperwork and I drove her home the next day. After dreaming about owning a Mustang for 28 years, the dream came true. I love the classic lines of my car. With any luck and some patience, I will own an early Mustang. Maybe a ‘68 GT/CS like my father had.

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 !
