mikspny Posted February 13, 2007 Report Share Posted February 13, 2007 My story is a bit unusual (so I've been told) and since it involves a Mustang I will share my story in hopes that it will liven up this site in the Mustang category. I agree with Yamahar1 regarding the thrill level on this site. I've only been visiting since November, it is the first Forum I have ever even tried to use, let alone play on. It has been fun and I "like" a lot of you on here and have spent a lot of time laughing my rear off over some of your humor. So, not being one to complain and not try to fix, here is my story. It started in 1978 at Sacramento Raceway...High Shcool Drags and one real cool 69' Fastback. Well, I got to drive it....ON GIRLS night. I also drove a 1972 Nova. But that Mustang made my heart pound, it was beautiful. My mom bought a 1979 Mustang...ugh, what a cute car for a mom. Anyway I never really liked the Mustangs after 1970 and really always had a thing for Porshes and Beamers. So my first new car was a Rabbit GTI...nice. Then I drove diesel trucks....for twenty something years. I loved the sound and later learned to realize...the torque. Fast forward 2005....driving my kids to school, in my deisel Excursion....rear view mirror...Burgundy GT Mustang circa 2005. I could not breath, that car absolutely took my breath away. I whipped out my cell, called my husband and said "I am going to buy a new Mustang". Well as most of you know it was not going to be that easy. They were hard to find....ohhhh, I love a good hunt. Three months later I bought my sweet little Mineral Gray GT (my Avatar). I subscribed to every Mustang magazine known to man....the mods started with a fury...and my Dad said (Porsche guy) "hey, why don't you take that Ford on the track?" He wasn't talk'n drag strip either. Well, I did and I've been on that slippery sloap ever since. See my sig and you can see how the car is today. We won't talk about my Shelby. I've been to a bunch of racing schools, in my Mustang and have done a ton of track time. Many have suggested I race a Miata....well remember what I said about torque....I gotta have it. Also handling. I do get concerned when I see so much focus on HP when the underside is largely ignored....especially in the 500hp variety. OOOps, back on track. I have my ARC racing license and am going for my SCCA license in three weeks. My first race is supposed to be in April. My Mustang will have it's log book on the 24th. Something else I find interesting is there are not very many of these cars in road racing.....oh my gosh....there should be. I'm not sure how to say this but these cars can kick some SERIOUS foriegn butt. Not to mention a little Chevy too. One more thing. I'm a 44 year old mom who is stupid over these cars. This information will either make you think I could not possibly know what I'm talking about or it will give you something to talk about!! Here...here to the S197 one hell of a car....before the Shelby GT500! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
