|2022 Ford Mustang|
There she is! My brand new 2022 Ford Mustang Ecoboost 6-speed manual transmission in velocity blue. I have wanted a Ford Mustang since I was 14 years old. I love the body styles of 1965 to 1979 & 1994 to the present. The stars aligned and I had to buy this car. My used car was worth a lot of money and I got a really good deal on this new one. I had my last car for 3 years and the total cost of ownership after I sold it was $4,000 including oil changes and other routine maintenance. The car market right now is INSANE! It's fast and it's fun to drive. It's been a long time since I've driven a manual transmission car. It took me a few minutes to get back into the habit, but it was faster than I thought it would be. I only killed the car 4 times on that 1st day. I'm not a shoe person. I don't do bags or lots of clothes or even fancy clothes. I don't drink often, I don't smoke, or gamble. I'm also pretty practical when it comes to making big purchases. All my appliances are well researched, and I usually pick the Consumer Reports Best Buy. I was lamenting to a friend about buying the car. He reminded me of how practical I always try to be. He told me that I work hard and if I want to drive a nice car, I should drive a nice car, so I am. Another friend asked me this week how I liked my new car. I said, "I'm happy every minute I'm in it!" She said, "So money really CAN buy happiness." I quipped, "I guess so."
