First vehicle driven

1980 Ford Mustang
Orange exterior color with black interior
Auto Transmission, 3 speed
Manual everything else.
I had to research back, but it probably had the ohc I-4: 140 cubic inches; 88 horsepower
with the 3 speed automatic transmission.

My brother was a few years older than me. Our father bought this car for us both, but mostly for my brother, to drive to our high school which was about 25 miles away.

Don't have any fond memories of this ride. Might have been a slight improvement over the family's earlier Ford Pinto, though. Rolled up the passenger window one mornng and shattered the glass. Don't think that all of the glass fragments were ever found.
