From an 8 year old's perspective...

Yesterday my son and I got in the Mustang to go get something for his friends birthday party. He starts asking me about the shifter and parking brake in the car. So I explain it a little. Next he asks "So can I have the Mustang when you're dead??" ... Geesh kid I'm only 32. Just thought I'd share.

When he leaves Legos all over the place where you'll step on them, its not an accident, it's a plot.

Those things hurt and you can never see them in the dark. My son and daughter (4 and 6) are already fighting over which care they get.

My 3 year old brother has one of these, that he like's to compare my car to:



The thing has 3 gears, and is fast as heck on the high-gear. I have a feeling my brother is going to be a nascar driver when he grows up.

My 10 year old daughter is convinced she wants my Mustang when she turns 16.

She's going to be so disappointed to learn that she's getting my wife's Camry instead.

A nice Mustang is always a good "dangling carrot" for going out and getting good grades and a job. Thats what mine was, it was either do good in school, get the Mustang. Or mess around and get a 94 Honda Accord 4 door... as you can see im not on a JDM forum.

OP my stepdaughter is 8 and she said almost the exact thing to me.
Her: "Can I have your car when I'm old enough to drive?"
Me: "Maybe when I die I'll leave it to you."
Her: "You're old. So that may be soon. May be tomorrow."

You have to laugh. Kids! :kooky:

that's what you get for buying a V6....

Poor impulse control

2012 V6 traded in for a 2017 VW GTI.
