It's official, the Mazda has seen better days. It has lived a very good life(10 yrs and 170,000+ miles), but it was time for Brad to get a new car. He and Nolan were busy sharing car information, and they looked at several different makes and models. Nolan is a Mustang fanatic(in fact we have recently decorated his room in Ford Mustangs), so he convinced his dad to at least look at the Mustang. After many weeks of research shared between father and son, Brad decided that he indeed thought the Mustang a better vehicle(compared to those he was looking at). Brad found this car "gently" used, and he was able to find a terrific deal! We will have to have many discussions with Nolan about the type of car he will be driving. I think he had a plan in mind...dad buys it now,he gets to drive it in 4 years(I don't even want to think of that day ): !). I think he just might be disappointed... Daddy will probably still be driving his "Stang".
