Style, But Most Importantly, Safety

My father is a Ford enthusiast. Therefore, he has two daughters that are as well. When he sold his 1967 Mustang GT my older sister cried. I was too young to understand at the time but when Ford introduced the 2005 Mustang, I somehow got it. Windveil Blue became my new favorite color.

The day before our wedding in September 2009 my husband, Matt, was in an accident which left his 2004 Ford F-150 FX4 totaled. He loved that truck. You couldn’t blame him really, it was a dependable truck that looked great. I was so thankful that he however, walked away without a scratch.

The wedding went on without a hitch and the day of, one of Matt’s dear friends and co-workers, Greg, drove his 2005 Windveil Blue Mustang GT to our wedding. It was that little extra thing that made the day even more exciting than I had anticipated. Sure you see them on the road and in the parking lot, but to sit in and awe over close up? A dream come true!

When I look back at this picture I remember the excitement of seeing my dream car in person and the wonderful memories of our wedding day. It also reminds me of how thankful I am for Ford’s excellent safety engineering that goes into each and every model. Had Matt not been in such a safe truck this picture may have not even taken place. Matt has purchased another F-150 and as for me, I am yet to part with my 2001 Explorer Sport with 125,000 glorious miles.

Thank you Ford, for keeping my family safe!!!
