New from Florida

Hi,
I just bought my first 'Stang yesterday. I have beeen a good boy all my life, paid my dues. I am 57 years old and never had a "sporty" car. My wife's three year battle with cancer left us nearly bankrupt. I lost my home and rental house due to the medical bills. I am recovering and was doing great until Obama cancelled the space program I am working on. My job willl end in September. My wife survived cancer, but, is handicapped.
The best way to raise my spirts was to buy a 1999 SRS 35th anniversary Mustang Convertible. The engine is clean, 138000 miles. Florida owned and operated. I live five minutes from the beach and work at Kennedy Space Center- for a while.
It is time for me start restoring the car and enjoying life.

Re: New from Florida

Hi,
thanks for the post.
I am looking for a contract engineering position. I am also going back to school for my Ed.D or D.Min. I may get into Christian Ed. I am a bi-vocational minister.
I work in engineer to support myself in order to volunteer in church.

Re: New from Florida

welcome

Sometimes getting something you've been wanting is the right thing to do.

Don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have regarding your car or mustangs in general...that's what we're here for! There are quite a few vendors that you can get OEM parts for as well as aftermarket performance parts to make her more fun

Re: New from Florida

Thanks for the well wishes. She is cancer free, but disabled due to the chemo and radiation. We are starting over financially like most everyone. She just realized how precious life is and wants to live it more fully. She just bought a 2004 Caddy SRX. We life in a double wide trailer in an over 55 retirement park near the beach. I will have to work 'till I die, but, we have a Mustang and Caddy in the driveway. No money, but, it's a lot of fun driving to work now.
