'65 Ford Mustang

Back in 1967, my brother had just gotten home from his stint in the Navy and he bought this 1965 Ford Mustang. He added a cool horn that said "ah-ooo-gah" and a huge gas pedal in the shape of a foot. It was really nice. I was 16 years old and barely driving, but he actually said "yes" when I asked if I could drive it around town and show it off! We lived in Kalamazoo, Mich., and there were two drive-ins we all went to that were on opposite ends of town, and we'd circle, cruising through. The night I got to drive the Mustang, I felt like I'd died and gone to heaven. Still can't believe he let me do that, but I did bring it back safe and sound.
