This month we feature a fiery 1999 35th Anniversary GT as our April 2011 Mustang of the Month. The owner, Lorrie, has quite a few reasons to love this red-hot pony. She has been a long-time Mustang enthusiast, with her first being a 1985 5.0. But this story goes beyond just the love of Mustangs and shows how sentimental cars can truly be. Lorrie’s father bought the 99 GT for her mother when it was brand new. He worked to change some cosmetics and get the car just the way her mother wanted it. Unfortunately, she didn’t get to enjoy her red-hot pony for very long. Lorrie states, “My Mom loved it, but, unfortunately, soon after my dad got it just like Mom liked it, she developed brain cancer and could no longer drive it, my Dad would take it every now and then just to get it going and of course for a dose of speed!!”

The fiery Mustang remained as a part of the family, but unfortunately the tragedy wasn’t over. A little over 3 years later, Lorrie’s father passed away from a heart attack which was completely unexpected. Lorrie described her father as “full of life” and a car-lover. Shortly after his passing Lorrie and her sister discovered a flyer for the Maricopa County Sheriff DP for Queen Creek Toy drive Car Show. Her father was supposed to be a judge in the show. They made the Kids Choice Award in honor of Lorrie’s father. Lorrie, along with friends and family, brought out all of her father’s vehicles to the show which included the 1999 GT, 2007 Lincoln Mark LT, 1969 Ford LT, and a 1959 Ford Panel Wagon, as well as a truck full of toys to donate. Lorrie and her sister have continued to contribute to the toy drive and they now have a special award called The MAC DADDY AWARD which allows Lorrie and her sister to pick a winning car and present the awards.

This Mustang holds a very special spot in Lorrie’s heart and will live on forever. She recently added smoked headlights and is doing a great job at keeping the fire burning for this 1999 GT.
