Do you own your Mustang?

As I approach paying off my daily driver, it dawned on me that at 21, I will own 2 vehicles, and that I've owned 4 in my lifetime (2 Mustangs, 2 Explorers). Maybe I get excited over simple things, but I feel that its a personal accomplishment at my age (and as a college student) to have managed my money so well and worked so hard to have this hobby...and to keep moving forward in it.

So, how many of your own your Mustang free & clear, how many of you are still paying on it? I'd even venture to guess that the younger crowd might not even have their vehicles in their name.

Discuss.

It's not a Mustang, but it's all mine.

Re: Do you own your Mustang?

I know how you feel! I've owned (and worked hard for!) all the vehicles in my past + present

its a great feeling, and its one-upping the guys with the 30k cars with 5k in mods.... its easy to spend cash on mods if mommy/daddy buys their cars... haha its better to know you did it all

Re: Do you own your Mustang?

i have 4 more years on the GT. though i have two cars payed off according to my credit report, since selling the Cobra and GST were through my bank and the buyers bank, their bank pays off my loan, then my bank sends them the title and whatnot.

ill prolly end up having to keep the GT forever, which is fine, ive come to grips with the reality ill never get what i want for it.

Re: Do you own your Mustang?

Still have about 3-4 years on the Jeep, it is fully in my name. Once I get a job, I am going to hopefully start increased payments to get it done quicker, but who knows.

Re: Do you own your Mustang?

I paid mine off summer of 04, it's still in my parent's name for registration purposes (cheaper tag in their county) and insurance purposes (technically my mom drives the stang...).

This summer it will be in my name and along with that the fun of insuring it through whomever I choose...along with the truck.

Re: Do you own your Mustang?

Im about 3 years away from paying mine off. I bought my 2004 v6 last september.I went through two beater cars to finally buying my Mustang. And believe me Ive worked my but off for it. I however have pretty much fallen in love with my v6, And Ive decided to keep it. Though some think its really not worth it, I plan to upgrade my v6 any way I can think of. Well thats the plan , but you never know if someone will total your car or not. I pray that will never happen.lol. And if it does........2004 Cobra here I come.

yeah i have the same thing, to get covered under my parents rates anything i register has to have my fathers name on it. no big deal really.

however my up and coming bike purchase will be fully mine from day one, im buying it for 1100 cash up front, in my name, and its own insurance. its gonna be a whopping 35$ a month.
