Why I Own a Mustang I own a Mustang because when I was young I was told to look around and see who had the kind of life I wanted to have then go buy the same car as them. What I found was that Mustang owners are generally much better looking than average. They test out smarter and have more friends. I heard about some guys from a university who studied Mustang owners in a bar. They found that Mustang owners get approached and generally get lucky about 43 times as often as most folks. Mustang owners shoot better pool, catch more fish and don't win the lottery nearly as often as they should. They can work their VCR and set the clock on the microwave. Their kids are brighter, their lawns are greener and their cars run better. Their daughters are prettier and their sons are better athletes. Their spouses are sweeter and their mothers-in -law hardly visit at all. Mustang owners do things like save lives and generally make a better world. Anyway, I looked around and it seemed to me that Mustang owners were clearly superior folk and I would be proud to be one. That is why I own a Mustang. That and all the good cars were too expensive.
