Reagan’s “Airplane” Car

Gallery Link

Due to many requests, we have finally compiled a gallery containing photos of the Mustang.

As far back as last summer (2012), Reagan had been saying that Daddy’s car was too slow, and that Daddy needed a faster car – like an airplane.  Daddy needed an “Airplane Car,” in her words.  One that went Vroom Vroom.  Daddy agreed.

In February, we started shopping.  Branden has always wanted a Corvette.  He started by looking at used Corvettes, since they were in our price range.  He actually test drove one, but was not able to negotiate a satisfactory price with the dealer.

Next, we went to test drive some new Mustangs.  The first test drive was a V6. These were available new, fully loaded in the price range we had set.  On a whim, just to see what he would be missing out on, he test drove a GT (V8) and fell in love with it.  So we went home with a base GT with far fewer options, which cost roughly the same price as the tricked out V6.

So the details, for those that want them:

  • 2013 Mustang GT Coupe
  • 6 Speed Manual Transmission
  • 5.0 Liter V8, 420 HP
Branden says “it goes.”  Reagan approves.
