Gerald S 1968 Ford Mustang 2dr Convertible

A Little Boy Who Made Me Smile

This story just happened two weeks ago. It was a beautiful summer day with a temperature of 79 degrees, just a perfect day and temperature for driving my convertible. I had just come to a red light and I was the third car back from the light in the left hand lane with a turning lane to my left which had two cars ahead of me, but with none next to me and suddenly a pick up pulled up across from me and I heard this little voice say, "I love your car mister." I turned and looked and here was this cute little boy who appeared to be about 8 or 9 years. He was leaning out his window with his arms crossed and his chin resting on his hands. I said to him, "Thank you very much, I love it too.". He then said to me, "I think it`s the most beautiful car I have ever seen. It is my Dream Car." Suddenly the turning lane light turned green and this little boy and probably his dad were gone. I get great comments from adults and older kids all the time, but to get from a young boy like this brought a warm smile to my face and heart. It will always be one of my specials memories of driving in my car.

    I can just picture the young boy in my minds' the Norman Rockwell illustrations. But, please, please please will you share some photographs of the beautiful car so we can all lean our chins on our folded arms with awe, as well. Thanks.
