Ford Mustang - Newer Body Style

Last September we NEEDED a 2nd car - our 2nd one died soon after we paid our 1st one off (figures!).

So we had decided on a 4 door sedan - a Volkswagon Passat.  The one we wanted sold before we could get back to CarMax, so we went online and found one EXACTLY like the one we just had lost - so we ordered it to be shipped to our local CarMax.

First it was delayed due to one of the Hurricanes, then once it got here - the local CarMax did their own inspection and found a broken door handle.  They had to take it to the dealer to be fixed properly and with the exact same part.

So, we waited and waited and waited - I think3 weeks!  Those 3 weeks we had only ONE car - that got to be very difficult.

I finally had enough and told the CarMax - I am going out of town tomorrow and I need a car NOW.  Did you know that they have a policy that you can return a car in 3 days with no penalty - no money lost - nothing.  Our salesperson suggested we come in and buy a car (this was the District Manager's idea - he was getting irate about the delay on our car and how it made them look) and then in 3 days return it and the Passat would be ready.  And he very quietly added - get something fun for the 3 days!

So, needless to say, we did - the Ford Mustang Convertible - the one we now OWN - whatever became of the Passat you ask?  On the day we had to return the Convertible we had fallen love with but couldn't decide whether to keep, we went to the CarMax and guess what?  Surprise the Passat is still NOT ready - well that clenched it for us - we looked at the Salesman and said, that's okay we will just keep the Mustang - he smiled and said I don't blame you!

I really do love having that car!  Any sign of warm weather and the top goes down.  The first time I drove it on a trip - it was chilly coming home, but I came prepared, scarf, gloves, jacket and the heat blasting and the top DOWN!  lol!

My husband says it's my mid-life crisis car - maybe, but who cares -  it's fun!

Dreams are great things, because when I dream, the price tags simply white out.<br />
