We picked up our new car the night of the 14th :) We bought a V6 Mustang
though and not the V8, my husband said he figures the gas is only going
to go up and not down(probable), plus, we wouldn't have been able to get
the Torch Red color we wanted. They had to go get this one from a team
member dealership earlier in the day, the other dealership hung onto the
spare key because if we didn't take it their was someone else that
wanted it-they sure are popular. The salesperson was kind enough to go
out of her way to drive to my house yesterday to deliver the other key.
Now that is service!
Besides this is enough horses-grrreat pick up :) We didn't even test
drive it, mostly because the dealership had a more than half flooded
parking lot (Houston) and it was raining still, we checked the mirrors
for blind spots and the back seat for our sons comfort and made the
deal, waited for an hour and out we went with a new Pony, singing:
To the Barbie Girl song:
I'm a Ponygirl, ( he said BOY ha)- in a Mustang World,
It's Fantastic, 'cause it's a Classic....
I just love it! And thank you for all your great suggestions, I tried
them all but the love for this car won out ;) And it is high enough by
the way. One person I know has a really low profile on their 2001
'Stang, I was worried they all where like that. I have never been a Ford
person so I didn't know-person who wrote nasty in reply should be
ashamed of himself. This one is perfect! (needs bigger tires though!)
My dad and I always talked about building a 60's Mustang together-he
would have taught me a lot along the way, he was a top notch mechanic
for over 20 years, but passed on with cancer before we could get
together to build it. I thought it was a nice touch though, that the
manager said, "your dad is smiling in heaven"--awe. The dealership was
awesome to us! BTW, anyone out here thinking about getting one, better
hurry as production stops before the summer of '06. He said that they
where only going to make them for one year, but they where so proud of
them, and sold so many they decided to go on a little longer. They are
already working on a new style.
I was inspired to see people so in love with the cars and trucks they
sell, really made a difference.
