|My 78 Mustang|
"Sunny" was famous too! Appearing in the 1984 movie Starman with Jeff Bridges at the wheel! I drove Sunny many miles through the 80's - but by 1992 - it was time for a change! We'd moved to the Homestead - I was working in Bellevue & on the road constantly visiting my portfolio of Condominium properties & attending board meetings.
I tried several different cars - but Finally one day a friend who'd noticed that I was driving a different car almost every day asked; "Why don't you just try another Mustang!" A light bulb went off! Before Butch knew it - we were not just car shopping - but shopping for another Mustang!

|"Smokey" 86 Ford Mustang GT|
Totally worthless on snow or ice, especially on Bellevue's hills... The day came, I was working closer to home & actually had time to ride my horse. Butch wasn't there to take us out with the horse trailer. I didn't like driving the full size truck - so - I made the tough decision to trade Smokey in on a 4-wheel drive Jeep that would pull the trailer & get me somewhere in the winter. I knew it was a Big mistake when I heard the squeal of the tires as the lot guy drove it off :-( The Jeep's transmission soon went out & I decided that I wanted a Ford back! That's when the Bronco entered my life... It's Not the same - but it does the job & does it well!
One day in Snohomish though - I saw a black Mustang - with a leather interior the exact color of my saddle. So - you never know - one day... one day... :-) In the meantime - I can dream about getting one of these! 50th Anniversary Edition.
