    I've owned two Fords before, a 63 Falcon convertable (still have it) and a very decrepid old '84 Bronco II that i had in college.

    Just before graduation from college I flew to Houston for a job interview. When I flew home with the job I immediately got on the internet and started searching for the car I was going to buy. I compared horsepower, torque, price, and style. I also liked the styling of the RX-8, the Nissan Z,the BMW Z3, Audi TT, and Crossfire.. many of which I'd still not be able to afford.

    I wanted the most raw power, 4 seats so that i could drive more than one friend, and affordability. The Mustang was the only one of all the cars I was considering that fit all of those criteria. A sweet bonus was that it looks the coolest of all the cars I saw. I fell in love with it at first sight!

    I've always prefered Fords and this will be my first Mustang.

    My Falcon has a 200cc straight 6 in it out of a '64 Mustang (that kinda counts, i suppose) so can I say that I've had owned 1/4 of a Mustang before?

    I guess there are a few new converts :D Count me as one. I saw the pictures back in 2002, and that was it. It was 3 long years of waiting - and driving a Neon... I went for the V6 because I figured I'd smash up a V8 since it has 2x the horsepower of the neon. So far, the V6 has been enough trouble (first speeding ticket in 12 years, although I wasn't driving more than 5 mph faster than I would have before...) I'm ready for more to be on the road so the cops don't have to pull me over to get a good look at one. :rolleyes:
