The White Beauty In the year of 2000, there was an Italian guy that lived across the street in Long Island, New York. My dad always saw the Cougar across the street and always admired it. The Italian guy always took it to church every Sunday and he kept it in his garage. The neighbor’s wife died so he decided that he was going to move. My dad later asked him if he could buy the Cougar for around 1,500. The neighbor didn’t care about the price so he said that he’d sell it for $1. That was one hell of a deal. That same year I was born so my dad would tell everyone that he has a new son and a new car. This cat loves to cause problems. It caused problems to my dad and to my brother. My brother hates the car. He had it before me, good thing it broke down so I could get it. It was just the battery cables weren’t on correctly, after that it ran like a champ, nothing was wrong with it. After I got the car I took lots of care of it, I cleaned it up, and painted it. I even put new pinstripe with my mom. That was the time when the car started to look a lot better. You would not believe the stains there was in the car. My dad one time got sand bags and put it in the trunk and he also had quarts of oil and they leaked and it’s really hard to clean it up. There is still some of it to this day. It’s ridiculous, it’s a luxury vehicle not a utility. I was really proud with what I did with the car, I would show my friends and they would say it was really nice. After some time someone got mad at the car because it wouldn’t start and he jammed the passenger door. This was the last day of school so I wanted to drive it home and it was embarrassing of having the car not start and having someone jam the door. Later as it turns out that the car didn’t want to start because it was a bad battery. I wanted to take it to a body shop to get it fixed but my dad wanted to fix it himself but we had no luck. A couple months later my girlfriend’s uncle unjammed the door since he was a body man. He did it like it was nothing. So that’s the story about The White Beauty, it was rough but at least she’s in good hands now.

Future Plans:
I plan to have it for the forseeable future. •5.0 302 High Output Mustang Engine •New paint job •Have the doors realigned. •New Rims •New carpet for the interior and trunk •Dual Exhaust •Undercoat •Rebuild transmission with sturdier parts to handle more horsepower •New License Plates •Replacement Door Lock Actuators •Tachometer to put on the steering column •New Speakers It looks like a lot but I’ll be doing those in a long period of time.
