My Story

My love of cars came from where?

3y ago


I've always been shite at blogging. I tried for years with Live Journal and it never stuck. This time will be different. This will be about cars. Cars have always been something that I've loved. The roar of the engine. The way some of them just shine in the sunlight. The bond between machine and human. I've had a bond with my last two cars. That sounds absurd to a normal human being but to a petrol head like myself, it makes all the sense in the world. I just love cars. Some more than others. Mustangs are my favorite. My last and current cars were and are ponies. I also enjoy some of the exotic cars. Think Ferrari and the like. I guess my true petrol head nature came out when I discovered a tiny motoring show on the BBC named Top Gear. At the time it was hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. More affectionately known by most of their fans as Jezza, Hamster and Captain Slow. Before Top Gear, I scoffed at the Ferraris and Lambos of the world. What a ridiculous thing! You'd pay how much for that car?! 1,300,000 pounds? And here I thought that $85,000 for a Roush Mustang was out of this world. Then I saw how much they loved these cars and I thought, "They feel for some of those cars like I feel for my Mustangs." So I continued to watch and fell in love with some of those cars myself. However, no one on this planet will ever convince me that a Lambo is anything other than a glorified piece of tin. So anyway, this is going to be a story of a girl and her car. A 2010 Ford Mustang. Nothing special about this car other than she's mine. She's a tiny V6. Her name is Ellie. If any one gets the reference, I'll friend you immediately. I'll be posting about out of town adventures. When I get the money, some improvements. There's a great story about why her front bumper and hood are starting to chip. And there will be the odd opinion piece. I think I'll start with my hatred of all things Honda.

P.S. If ever any of the men from The Grand tour see this and one of them gets apocalyptic about his nickname, I'll edit the post.
