22 years

22 years ago today I walked on to Person Fords lot in San Diego hoping to find a cabernet red 5 speed GT. Rite away I found the row of 8 or 9 mustangs. But no cabernet red GTs. Oh well i'll find one. So I walk back out to the street to jump in my 71 Grandé and move on to the next dealer. When this sales man chased me down like they do. He asked what I was looking for. I told him. He thought for sure they had one and he would go check. We all herd that before.Dodgy About 10 minutes later he comes back and tells me they have one, we just need to locate it. Sure enough we took a walk around and their it was sitting with the Taurs's. I told the sales man that I wanted to see the factory invoice and I would give them 500.00 over. The sales manger said no problem because its a 89 and they already had gotten 1990s in. So we maid the deal for 15k out the door and I left Person Ford side ways with just 4 miles on it. I flew home and got my mom so we could go back and get my Grandé. So I let my mom drive my brand new 5.0 home. Well I followed her on the freeway I drove on her left then on her right. I just could not believe it. I was watching my Bad Ass 5.0 rolling down the freeway.Its been a fun 22 years. So after work today I took it for a ride and drove it like I stole it. What a great car.

Don,that is a nice looking car! I helped my youngest son buy strawberry red 93 LX 5.0 5spd. It was fast and pretty. We wished we still had it. We had to sell it because he did not hold up his end of the bargain.Sad

Thanks Eddie. I'm worried about him holding up his end of the bargain too but so far so good. He really likes the car and says he gets compliments on it all the time. Welcome to the club son. Cool
