My dad has a burgundy mustang convertible. He and I went on a road trip today and it was a pleasure to drive in it. It was a mild spring day and although not yet warm enough for putting the top down, you had to appreciate the speed and handling of the car.
We went to Muskoka, which is truck country. There we had occasion to admire up close and personal a red super duty F350 platinum truck. The price was staggering - $75,000 - and it is no wonder that all the lease payments on the new trucks are up at least $100 per month. That being said, it would have been a treat to drive.
Life is full of small pleasures. Driving nice cars on occasion is one of them.
