5.0 Legend Returns

If you haven't seen this video of the 2011 Mustang GT 5.0....well, just where have you been?

I already have the 1987 Mustang GT 5.0 and think it would be great (awesome, really) if I could own another 5.0 from the newest generation of Mustangs. Do I hear any sponsors...? Alas, all I heard was cricket noises (sigh)

I first saw that video from a twitter tweet from MuscularMustangs a few days ago. Watching that video makes me want to pinch pennies and save up...but I'm running out of parking space!

Happy Birthday to the Ford Mustang

Today (4/17) is the 46th anniversary of the @FordMustang! on Twitpic Today, April 17, is the 46th anniversary of the Mustang's introduction at the New York Worlds Fair in 1964 to the public. Ford had orders for over 22,000 units by the end of the day and the Ford Mustang was on its way to becoming a legend!
Thanks to for the reminder and to Ford on twitter for the photo!

Rainy Day

Rain on Windshield It's raining.

I'm not complaining, it's nice that the yellow
dusting of pollen that has settled on the Mustang GTs
will finally be washed away.

The rain might mean that the Mustangs
will be spotted with raindrops
or that the dirt from puddles will be visible
once the car is dry.

While driving in the rain today,
I realized that it's probably been over
6,7 or 8 months since the windshield wipers
have been replaced.

I realized this as soon as the wipers were activated
and made that dreaded 'burrrp' noise
as they waved back and forth.

Since the rain seems like it will stick around,
I'll head over to the auto parts store
for new wipers.
Most times, they'll even install
them for you...even if it's already raining.
