In November 2005, when I was 11 years old, my mom had an idea. She’d purchase a car at the time and by the time I’m 16, the car will be paid off. On her way home from Ocala one day, she passed by a Mark III Customs shop with a wide selection of customized Mustangs for sale, with 05 models being sold cheaper than 06s. At the time, I never cared that much about the Mustang vs. Camaro battle, but since I’ve had this 05 V6 Mustang, I’ve always loved the Mustang. Now that I’m 18 years old, I’m thankful for my mom’s decision and Ford’s decision to continue making the Mustang at the time. This Mustang plus the 09 F-150 I recently inherited are the best vehicles I’ve ever had. Family’s been a Ford family since 98, rock on Ford!
