Brian Nixon is obviously the talented driver and artistic director of the blog, so thanks to him for starting this thing, and he's still faster than me too!
Today I want to tell you about a 2000 V6 Mustang that followed me (NMS-North) home one day because I bought this at an auto auction in Norfolk VA. (Cue the flashback story-telling music and special effects here...) The bidding was quick and short that day. At least it went quickly once the auctioneer realized that no one was bidding on his opening $500 asking price. So, with two other guys both raising their hands for the first bid at $200, and then my next bid of $225, that was all she wrote, and NMS turned out to be the winner! You just can't lose with a 225 dollar car can you?
It came complete with exciting options like, wheels and tires, a key, and more surprises inside than a box of Cracker Jack! Among the "freebies" inside the car were both a Haynes AND a Chilton repair manual for the car, a bunch of bottles of various auto-fluids, and an unopened 12 ounce can of Mountain Dew! Also, a huge set of Channel Lock Pliers, a drain pan, and an owner's manual for a 2006 Mustang. More to follow on this fine stallion as we see if we can get it running!
Special thanks to my friends that helped tow this beast home, Rudy Rendon, Michael Moore, Spencer Burnham, and Stephen Reier. You guys deserve a free lunch!
