I was a MOPAR man until I tried Ford in 1983. We bought a 1983 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe that was lost due to an accident then were able to buy a 1985 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe which was traded for our first 1988 Mustang GT Hatchback. We have had several others since then including 1990 Mustang GT Convertible, 1999 Mustang GT Coupe, 2002 Mustang Coupe we bought for our daughter and eventually sold to her for 1 penny, 2003 Mustang GT Coupe, 2003 Mustang Mach1, 2005 Mustang GT, 2010 Mustang GT Coupe, for while we had a 1989 Mustang GT Convertible while owning both the 1989 we still have the 2013 Mustang GT Convertible that we use today we did sell the 1989. We have had several other Fords since 1984 that were the family vehicles from Tempo, several Taurus', Freestyle, Taurus X, Explorers, and now an Edge. I spent my Army tour in Germany. I also spent 40+ years in the electronics business at a local company.
