I can't believe this is happening to me... but have to admit, I have a crush on a car. This beautiful piece of machinery has been sitting in the showroom for a couple of weeks now and every time I walk by it, I have to pause and admire. I've always liked the Ford Mustang... It's an American classic... but never before have I been so infatuated with a vehicle of any kind.

When I first started working at Heritage Ford, my friend, Joe from Australia (a cousin to my brother in law) was in the US for a convention for the Mustang which is held in Las Vegas every year. He came to California to see John, and John brought him by the dealership to see the inventory. They spent a lot of time talking cars with our salesman, Jerry. Jerry had a friend with a souped up Mustang and sent them out to go see it. Joe really seemed to know his stuff... and I sure wish he was here to see this car.

This is the 2011 Ford Mustang - Shelby - Cobra. It's a black coupe with a V8, 5.4 liter engine. This car runs with 550 horse power and 510 lbs. of torque... and can be yours (or mine for that matter) for only $52,900.

I keep telling the boys at work that I'm going to buy it as soon as I win the lottery. They laugh at me, but I'm serious. I can totally see myself cruising around in this car. I'm just not sure if Charlie will fit in the back seat.
