I just purchased another Mustang, a 2007 4.6L 3 valve GT in Alloy Clearcoat Metallic, and joined Stangnet. My Navy Vietnam Vet Dad bought a 1965 Green V8 coupe the year it was produced, but my Mom "influenced" him to sell it 2 years later. Needless to say, I inherited the Mustang bug, and the first car I bought was a new 1990 Mustang LX 5.0L 5-speed hatchback from Academy Ford in Laurel, MD. 2 years later my wife and I traded it in for a Ford Explorer. 14 years later I bought a 2006 Mustang GT which I drove 100,000 miles in two years. Then my wife "influenced" me to trade it in for 2 Nissan Versas. 14 years later my dad convinced me to place one more Mustang on my bucket list. So in September I bought an immaculate high mileage 2007 Mustang GT, and gave my dad a ride which he absolutely enjoyed 55 years after his first Mustang. He commented the car is the same color as a PT boat. I plan on modifying this car for performance during my retirement, so I will be studying Stangnet for ideas. Finally I attached a photo of my dad next to the 2007 GT.

Welcome to the fold here. Glad to have you. 1 Mustang = 2 Versa,:rlaugh:They should have thrown in a used Festiva also. I think there was some wiggle room left on the table.

BUT.............. You did the right thing. Listening to your wife and making the swap. In the end the smart decisions like this come back and allows us to do the things we want later on.

BTW @leseigel Tell your father Happy Veterans Day from all of us here at Stangnet and we thank him for the service he gave to this country.

Thanks for the wise words - happy wife, happy life! I will gladly pass your words to my dad.
