Doesn't everyone have a dream car? For me it is a Ford Mustang Convertible. I don't know why I love it so much.

First of all, I love the red color. Something about it just says "Hey, come and drive me fast". Then there are the sleek lines and the looks you get when in a cool looking car. Then there is the convertible part. There is something about the thought of driving down a road winding around a beach that makes me want to drive it.
But then there is the practical side of me. Number one, I dislike the sun and my hair blowing around. So when would I put the top down on the car? Second was the price. When I got a new car five years ago, I was able to purchase a new car. Dan encouraged me to test drive the Mustang but I knew I couldn't afford it. I hated to try something that I was going to love and then not be able to get it. So I avoided the Ford dealership totally. I did end up with a Honda Civic coupe which has a sports car feel without the sticker price.
Someday I'm going to drive one of these and not worry about the wind or the sun or anything else.
Did you know it is the 50th anniversary of the Mustang? On Wednesday they are going to put one on top of the Empire State Building.
Have you ever wanted something but been afraid to actually try it because of the cost?
