|Dark Titanium Gray 1990 Mustang GT Convertible|
Deep Titanium Metallic 1990 Mustang GT convertible owned by Kelly and Howard Johansen from West Jordan, Utah. It has a 5.0L V8 engine and an automatic transmission. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting June 5, 2011. Kelly tells us more,
"It all started with something as simple as ice cream!
My husband, Howard, and I were up visiting our friends Mike and Jolene one Saturday evening when we all decided to have some ice cream for dessert. So, a quick trip to Baskin-Robbins was in order. Mike and Jolene had just recently purchased their daughter a 1996 Mustang convertible for being a straight A student. We were elected to go pick-up the ice cream so Mike tossed us the keys to the mustang and said here take this! Howard said I could drive and off we went.
It didn't take too long for that Mustang Convertible to put a spell on me and by the time we arrived at Baskin-Robbins I informed my husband he could buy me my own Mustang - just as long as it was a convertible! Unbeknownst to me, Howard started looking for a convertible for me. On Saturday, June 28, 2003, my husband took me to look at a Mustang convertible. The guy opened his garage door and backed the car out of the garage. I was standing on the side of the driveway and almost jumped out of my skin, my eyes bulging out and said out loud: 'I want that Mustang!' Little did I know how those four little words could affect my husband's purchase negotiation! (He wouldn't budge a penny) We took it for a test drive and it was so much fun, I forgot about the time and this little Pony made me late for work!
I swear I only asked Howard once or twice if he planned on buying me the car - Howard told me I asked about a hundred times over the next three days! On Wednesday evening Howard was off to his monthly computer meeting and then to dinner with his friends afterward. Little did I know he skipped the meeting and set out to negotiate the purchase of the Mustang. After he finalized the deal Howard called me and asked me to join them for dinner. All his friends knew what he was up to and we were all waiting in the restaurant for my husband to arrive when I spied him pulling into the parking lot in my car! I squealed: He bought me my car!
Howard casually walked into the restaurant, dropped the keys in my hand, gave me a sweet kiss, and said 'here's the keys to your Mustang' During the evening Howard wondered out loud if this would get him lucky - I told him we could pull the new car in the garage when we got home and I would show him lucky!
My Mustang immediately went on the show circuit along with my husband's Mach 1 Mustang. The first show we attended together was the Cache Valley Cruise-In the following Saturday. The morning of the show, Howard tossed me a towel and a bottle of wax and said 'It's your car - you can wax it!' For once I didn't mind cleaning a Mustang before a car show!
It is great to own my own Mustang! Since we bought it, it has received new tires and wheels, a Cervini Mach 1 hood, a Cervini Saleen rear spoiler, new leather interior, new convertible top, a Dr. Gas exhaust system, 3:73 gears, LX taillights and quite a few other goodies as well. The purple pin striping really lets people know whose car this is! My car has taken on a transformation to my personality and what I really wanted in a Mustang!"
