Mustang Mary

My very first car was a 1966 Nightmist Blue Mustang Coupe.  One of my Dad’s co-workers sold it to me for $1500.  I flipped a lot of burgers at my part-time, after-school job to pay for that car, but it was well worth it.  Daddy and I drove three hours to Carolina Mustang on Chatham Street in Chapel Hill, NC, where we purchased everything we would need to restore my new baby–fenders, a gas tank, quarter panels, floor pans, seat covers–the works.  I can still seeing us installing those seat covers using our straight nose pliers and hog rings…

With my Sprint 200 motor, I was definitely Mustang Mary, flying down the back roads of Southeastern North Carolina in my my newly restored coupe.  To this day, my entire family is faithful to Mustangs.  Daddy drives a 2005 GT; Mom drives a 2011 5.0; I drive a 2008 GT; and my parents gave my teenage son, Denver, a real fixer-upper– a 1992 Mustang Convertible 5.0.

I only have 33,000 miles and 3 payments left on my current Mustang, which the family affectionately calls “The Grocery Getter.”  So, now I have my sights set on a new toy that combines two of my greatest loves:

What do you think?  Should I get one?  It’s only a cool $10,000.00.
