Old Geezer and His New Mustang

This brought a tear to my eye... I guess a new Stang is about the best replacement for sex, for guys like this.

NORTHVILLE, MICH.--MAY 2005 John Kachigian, an 83-year-old Ford Motor Company retiree, has owned 10 Mustangs, including three Shelby models, since 1965. He ordered the '05, sight unseen, and purchased the first one delivered to a dealership in Ann Arbor, Mich. in 2004. He said, "It made me feel 30 years younger." The new model Mustang sales are up 25 percent year-to-date, and Ford has recently announced that it is increasing production 70 percent this year to meet the increased demand. photo by: Ford Photographic/Sam VarnHagen (06/02/05)

He shoulda held out for the new Shelby model to go with his old Shelby in the background... then again, he is 83. I guess you live life while you can.

BTW, is that one of Wayne's towels??
