The Mustang turns 50. I remember when it came out. Jack said that it would become a classic. Of course I pooh poohed that idea, but then I also thought that Microsoft PC’s were destined to be only game machines. Silly me.
We thought about buying one of the ‘new’ Mustangs. The neighbor did and even though Jack wasn’t a ‘car’ man he was eyeing that one. We might have if they would have been bigger. Being practical we ended up with a 4 door Chrysler.
Looking back I know that even if we would have gotten that Mustang we wouldn’t have hung on to it. Back then we needed to sell the old to afford the new.
The car in the picture is Rick’s (son). It’s a Mustang Laguna Seca and one beautiful car. Kris (daughter) has a mustang and the grandson has a mustang convertible. Pretty cars when they are all in the drive together.
This one sits in the garage a lot. Rick doesn’t like to take it out in the winter. He doesn’t want it to get dirty. ☺ ☺ With Tuesday’s sunshine it made a rare appearance and looks like it will be on the road again, if only for a short while. Talk about babying a car!!
Beautiful cars, no wonder they are Fords most successful launch since the Model A. My dad had one of those (Model A). I hated it, but then I found that when he would pick me up at school the guys thought it was the greatest. Sort of changed my mind. Wish we had it now and the Model-T he had too. I learned to drive on those old cars. Us kids would drive them around the pasture. Good times, with a lot memories. So Happy Birthday Mustang, you’ve come a long way.
