This is our new mustang! Well, it is used... but new to us. :) I don't want to bore you guys with all the details since I know the magority of you probably couldnt care less about our automobiles... ;)
We actually JUST purchased the car yesterday!! It should be fun this Summer to have another convertible. I used to own a 91 Mustang Gt that I spent some money modifying. :)
Those pictures were taken the day I sold the car... SAD SAD day... BUT selling the car helped us come up with the down payment on our house, AND also helped me buy my first digital SLR, AND my first wide format printer that kinda started my hobby turned business, so it was necessary. It feels nice to be in a position to replace the car (to an extent) the girls are older now (no more rear facing car seats) and I think they are really going to enjoy taking the top down this summer. We also still have the Avalanche so this will probably be a weekend driver and driven when Jaydon and I do date nights. :) Which we really dont do often enough... ;) We drove the car and I took some pictures tonight...
The mustang has about 110,000 miles and we bought it below Kelly Blue Books estimated value for 6,500. I think we got a really good deal. :)
Funny thing (well NOW its kinda funny) I've ALREADY been pulled over in the car, and not because I was speeding either! This mustang is a 6 speed, and I have never really learned how to drive a manual... so tonight Jaydon was instructing me (with a LOT of patience I might add) I drove around out in the middle of nowhere and was finally feeling brave enough to drive in town (although I avoided the 4 way stops and ANY traffic whatsoverer) Anyhow I passed a cop who decided to pull me over, "I'm like Jaydon what do I do? How do I stop!?" I'm panicking and super nervous... I finally turn down a side road and come to a stop (jaydon was panicked I was going to curb check the wheels so that added to the stress) The poor guy walked up to the car and I rolled down my window and seriously couldnt talk, I was on the verge of breaking into a full blown cry. The officer says "How are you doing this evening?" Jaydon was kind enough to speak for me, "She's a little stressed, she's learning how to drive a stick" The guys says "oh...well it looks like you were doing a good job" really sympatheticly and explained that the cops in the area where checking the tint level on alot of the cars and are trying to crack down on those too dark. He checked our windows and sure enough... they are apparently 4 shades too dark. He asked for our registration and proof of insurance, and we told hime we had just bought the car last night and didn't have any of that just yet. I had even left the title at home in my purse with the bill of sale (I had grabbed my camera bag instead) He was REALLY nice and went to check our drivers' licenses' came back and said everything was fine but that we needed to lighten the tint or we would be pulled over again. So um yeah... I let Jaydon drive after that because I was shaking too bad! :)
Funny story now, not so much then... ;) I'm curious... how long did it take you before you felt comfortable driving a stick? Any funny/horror stories? Actually... maybe I dont want to hear the horror stories, unless it helps me avoid the same in the future! ;)
