Jackie P It is great to have all those wonderful memories and Mustangs are great as long as it fills the needs of the driver. What I really wanted to comment on is the statement about a FORD bringing the mail. I learned to drive in a Ford Pinto years ago and have owned several in my life. There are very few vehicles made today that are suitable for rural mail delivery. I live in the mountains of Southwest Virginia and the delivery routes are often very rough. It would be great if Ford would consider a moderate profile, four wheel drive, Cross-over or SUV with bench seats in the front. The conversion kits are hard to find and very unattractive and really, kind of unsafe. Having one of these vehicles made with FACTORY RIGHT HAND DRIVE would be even better! Maybe one of your engineers should visit a rural post office and take a tour! A lot would be learned about letter carriers and their jobs. This is a truly unmet need in the market today.
