Like New

My father bought me my first vehicle six years ago when I was a sophmore in high school. When I realized I could not afford my dream car, which was a mustang, I soon turned to trucks. My dad’s accountant was ready to get rid of his 1999 F-150 and buy a new one. Well we ended up buying the truck for about 6,500 and it has lasted me all throughout high school and four years of college! The other day I offered to drive myself and my boss to lunch. After riding down the road, he asked me how old my truck was. I had told him, “it’s a 1999.” He was shocked to find that it was that old and followed up with comments like, “It runs like it’s brand new!” I plan on keeping my F-150 even after I buy a new 2011 Mustang after graduation!

my idea is simple.  make the new mustang  available with bare bones options like no back seat. no carpet. just like in my ford f 150.  no spare tire or jack. and have all performance options open to buy. like performance brakes upgraded suspension and performance exhaust from factory. and make it both for stick and automatic.  guys like me will not mind paying a littlie extra for less stuff. its a win!  ford saves some money on back seats and no carpet. and then makes a little more as they sell it as a option
low cost performance
