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!

Ford should come out with a new SVT high performance car. I think it should have a Supercharged 6.2L V8 or a V10. It should be a low produced car because of it's higher cost to make. It should have lightweight metal like the aluminum in the new F-150s. If this car was made of the same aluminum as the F-150s, it might promote the aluminum and you might have more F-150 sale.  It should be loosely based on a mix between the Mustang and the Ford GT. Ford could prove that you don't need a 2 million dollar car to be competitive. There could even be a carbon fiber version, of course for a extra price. It should be 2 doors with only 2 seats. Thanks for reading this.
