My First Car

My first car was a 1966 ford Mustang 289
My dad was always a Ford man and I followed in his footsteps as his Ford girl. When i turned 16 in 1981- He took me and bought me my first car. He loved to work on the “Ponies ” restore and repair them.
He found me what I called my “grey ghost”. It was primer grey and needed a water pump right on the spot!! LOL he got me that car for 1100.00. He fixed and painted that car for me and it was then Cranberry Apple . But it was still my old “grey ghost” to me.
I miss that car so much. Got into my 20’s and thought I wanted a newer car. I was so stupid!! LOL
I still have held strong to FORD and still drive one. Karen

In the world of cars the mustang is my absolute favorite. But there is one thing that this car lacks most of all and that is performance handling. take a look at european cars compared to them we are in the stone ages yes i know the new mustang is wider and lowered also it has independent suspention all four tires, we will wait to see what it can do. Also we have a 5L engine that stock puts out around 450 HP really? how is it smaller engines can dut out the same? what i am trying to say is the mustang is an iconic car and when it first came out it was top of the line, throught the years of mustangs life it has fallen into a rut of terrible design untill the you have the 2005 or newer model. but performance on the track has still been lacking if ford wants to keep up in the world they need to have a faster, lighter and well it has already got the looks down but come on please for the pride of our country put money aside and make something amazing that can show the world what America can make out of its own garage! Thank you
