When I was in my early teens I began thinking about what kind of car I would want when I was older. Of course it had to be an American car and it had to be fast, so after examining various cars and reading reviews I thought that the Ford mustang would be the perfect car for me. When I was 18 and had earned some money I began to look around and eventually found my first car on craigslist. It was a green 1994 mustang v6 manual that I bought for $1800. I didn’t know how to drive a manual but with my stepfather’s help I learned. I also learned a lot about working on cars. That was a year ago and I am still driving that car today and I love it.
