- Just Horsing Around
Hello there, long time no see! I'm back with a new car!
I think this one, like so much else, can be blamed on D-Fence. At last year's ringmeet we were chatting and the conversation turned to how I've always liked the Mustang, especially so the current generation, and that I'm in an incredibly fortunate financial position (well paying job, lucked into an apartment with very cheap rent, no family, no loans to pay off). And he was like "you should just get the Mustang then!".
What a silly idea to my sensible German ears. Positively outlandish. Buying a ridiculously unreasonable car, fulfilling one of my dreams, just because I could afford it? Pffft!
... although ...
And so the idea started to ferment in my head, I started looking into how much it would actually cost and if I could really afford it, then things quickly spiraled from there and soon after I had signed a contract. Fast forward 9 months and the cork was ready to pop as I unexpectedly got the message that the car had gone off the boat and was on its way to a dealer where I could pick it up. Which I did just last friday.
So here it is! Brand new 2022 Mustang GT in Atlas Blue with almost all of the bells and whistles. And I love it! I think it's simply gorgeous, especially in this color and in the sun. It has more power than I could realistically ever use, but I can also just pootle around town at 30 kph and it'll still put a smile on my face.
Alright, enough blabbering, here's some beauty shots.
Since I haven't found a garage for it yet, it currently has to sit out on the street...
... where it does its best to try and blend in with the locals.
The interior is quite nice too.
And you get all these silly but kinda charming touches, like the infamous pony projectors.
