My Shiny Red Mustang Convertible

Did I forget to tell you I got one for Christmas? It's parked in our barn, waiting for sunny warm spring days. My friends know I am passionate about sports cars, particularly shiny red ones. I love the rumbling purr of a big V-8 engine while driving down country roads with the wind in my hair as I smoothly shift that racy 6-speed manual transmission. A dream come true, since I really missed my '94 Camaro.

Except this dream is a little different. It's true that I'll have the wind in my hair, but I won't be on a country road. I'll be mowing the grass at Ireland Acres with the Troy-bilt Mustang RZT that we bought from my late father-in-law's estate.

Sorry, I couldn't resist the temptation to lead you on for a minute. I've been thinking about a Mustang for a while now...I probably should have specified a Ford.
