My New Car

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."


  1. What a fun car! The color is awesome! I can can hear your excitement loud and clear through your writing. I think your friend is right, it's good to be practical and it's also good to treat yourself once in a while. Hope you continue to enjoy it!

  2. She a beautiful Mustang! How wonderful that your used car was worth so much in the current crazy car market. Vroom Vroom!

    1. Not yet but only b/c I'm trying to come up with the perfect name. She doesn't even have 500 miles on her yet. I've got time. I'm open to suggestions!

  5. Ha! Enjoy your new car. We can all indulge a little bit in something that we like.
