Ok, so I'm getting ready to pick up my dream car. Mom finds out and is giving me *$%#. "You don't need that Mustang." "That car will always be breaking down." "Are you sure you can afford that car?" "You have no business having 2 cars." *ad nauseum*

Please, please, some encouraging words...

(I should mention I'm about a half-century old divorced woman who shouldn't care what mom thinks)

If you have the funds and another car, I assume(you know the saying) the other car will be your daily driver, then why not? When I was 16 I bought a crapped out '67 coupe for $1200 that was always breaking down, but so were my friends old imports and mine cost a fraction of what theirs did to fix. I caught flack from some of my family (especially my uncle who was a car salesman) about "that old car", but It was the best thing for me. It was easy to work on and fun to drive, unlike said imports.

Mom is doing her job. Listen to mom, smile, nod, then go out and have fun with the Mustang. If it breaks down, tell mom she was right, get it fixed and go out and have some more fun.

If you have another car, go for it! I did at I'll never looked back! If you find a good one (like I was lucky enough to find) it will run fine and last probably longer than you or I will, as long as you take care of it...

Besides, it's a MUSTANG!!! Not some crappy new car that looks all the same, people don't give it a secocnd look. My wifes Focus is nice, but it will never be the same as my Stang!

Thanks

My 66's are probably more reliable than my daily drivers, and I can probably fix the 66's. Have fun, buy the car. If it has problems, the solutions can most likely be found here.

Half century old and looking to buy a classic muscle car huh? Sounds to me like you're going through some emotional instability due to your age, like maybe you need this car to compensate for other life factors. Maybe you feel the need to relive your youth, or enhance your self worth through your automobile?

In other words, your NORMAL just like all us other old farts. Absolutely GO FOR IT! You won't regret it (although your mom might).

Well I'm just shy of a half century old, and have bought 3 mustangs in the last 2 years ... one for me, one for my daughter, and one for my son. Especially since you have the other car GO FOR IT! Mom will get over it. The Mustang will probably break down less often than a new car, and be WAY cheaper to fix if it does.

It's a really fun affliction to have, loving vintage cars and Mustangs. I've bought three Mustangs in the last three years and I got worse instead of better. Since then I bought two Rancheros, a 64 & 66, a (ahem) 65 El Camino and I'm going after another SVO next week so it doesn't get parted out and sold on e-bay. That'll be 3 SVO's. Did I say affliction? Maybe I meant addiction. Enjoy yourself and get Mom to buy one too. It'll make you both younger. Good luck!!
