I was just thinking about why I decided on a II for my car of choice and thought...It would be cool to hear everyones story. So please do tell... As for me, I blame it on 1st love. lol My first "real" girlfriend back in the 80's bought me an MPG Mustang II model kit for my birthday. I thought it was the baddest model! I guess it rubbed off, when I was looking for my first car it HAD to be a Mustang II fastback. I've had one ever since.
