Of course, I'm here. Where else would I be?
I think I just bought my new Mustang, but it turned out to be a 2008 Ford
Focus for my daughter. I co-signed the loan for her, so I may have to
"suffer" with the Frogs for another year or two. I'm happy, though - her '99
Mystique was in a bad way and becoming untrustworthy. She has a longer
commute these days and will be driving to school 3 nights a week in the Fall
(gotta finish up that Bachelor's degree), so I was happy to help. Cute
little Focus, too - BRIGHT red.
Meanwhile, I'm off tomorrow to get a haircut. Seems I've been having a bad
case of convertible hair lately. Weather's been fantastic.
I know all about/understand that. Kids/education was a reason I
didn't jump into a new Goat, Magnum, etc earlier. Kids got to come
And if you wait a few years the V6 Stang will likely be pushing 360HP
by then. :-)
My daughter loves her little ['03] Focus! And the SVT suspension

Be glad you have hair. My 23-year old son, after losing most of his
hair, finally took a razor to his head. Poor kid! Now as soon as he
brings up old-man jokes, I switch the topic to hair -- shuts him up
I haven't made up my mind yet, and I'm still looking at the numbers. Even
though I'm "on the hook" for her auto loan, we should still be able to swing
a new Mustang if I want to pull that trigger. If I go with the six, it
wouldn't be until the performance package is available, but then a $30,000
5.0 is VERY appealing.... Still, worst case is that I have the Frogs for a
few more years, and that's a worst case I can gladly live with.
Hah! We're talkin' the Princess here. The Focus SES is fine just the way it
I never complain about having too much hair. The opposite is true for many
in our family, so I never complain. And I'm not allowed to use it against
The Boy, who's also in danger of hair loss, or my wife would kill me. He
just hit 30, so the old-man jokes are less frequent now, anyway. (Funny how
I love having my hair cut, but I hate going to get a haircut, so I put it
off too long. When it starts interfering with my top-down driving, I know
