The Confession of a Cheater...

Please don't tell Envy...lol...but when I was vacationing in Miami I rented a convertible Mustang and I had a blast in it. I know I already have a Mustang...but that's different because DaBeast is Envy's boyfriend and it's her fault he came to live with us...so she doesn't mind me driving him at all. But I think her feelings might be hurt if she knew how much fun I had in that vert and how hard it was for me to turn it in that last day...so I've kept it a secret.

I've never owned a convertible...only rented a few along the way just to see if I liked it...but not one single one of them made me actually want to buy a convertible until this one. Now since I've been home...I find myself perusing ebay motors casually looking at 1st Gen convertibles...lol

I've never named a rental car before either...lol...but here I am with the Mustang I called Black Beauty ...

Now Hillary, don't make send the after you....

I'm thinking Miami made you a tad bit

All though, I'm digging the fact that you're on the prowl for a First Gen Convertible. That's pretty awesome!!

In my defense...I did not intend to rent a Mustang...I made a reservation for an intermediate car with Enterprise. But when I went to pick it up...they offered me a $10 upgrade for the Mustang so I jumped on it. I know from experience that you can't normally rent a convertible in any major city for the $44 a day I paid.

Nooooooo...not that...lol

And I'm just looking for now...I won't pull the trigger until Envy is paid off. But I like to be well informed when I buy so I will be watching and making some calls until the time comes and the right car comes along. I'm looking for a "drive it and enjoy it" kinda car because I'm not willing to spend the extra cash on a numbers matching factory restoration Camaro unless I stumble on a great deal like the Corvette was.

The Corvette has caused quite a few arguments between Andy and I because he wants to repaint it a different color but I won't allow it...lol...even though it's his technically. Money has been tight so we can't afford the kind of quality paint job it deserves so I've compromised by agreeing to a chrome wrap job to tide it over until the house is paid off and we can restore it to it's original glory.

I've always been a Ford girl...but Chevrolet does do a few things right and the Camaro and the Corvette are two of them. While the current generation of Mustang looks a bit common to me...especially around here...the Camaro is very unique in it's styling and I love it!

Ouch...that was harsh...lol. The current value on a 2007 Shelby is over 36K plus it does have over 25K in mods on it so I wouldn't settle for that price. The owner of the local Discount Tire offered me 45K last year but his offer wasn't even a bit tempting.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I don't know for sure what it was...lol...I never popped the hood. I assumed it was a V8 because it had dual exhaust which most V6 Mustangs are lacking...but I learned after I got home that starting in 2011 Ford went with dual exhaust on the V6s too. Surely it was a V6 though because it wasn't near as aggressive as Envy...so if it was a V8...Ford should be embarrased...lol.

Since you already own a Mustang, I can't say that you have sinned.
