Chesher's 242-word essay, one of thousands of entries to Ford's "Mustang Stories" online contest at www.the2010mustang.com was voted the winning story by site visitors. And indeed, this young man bleeds Mustang: "The only thing greater than a life loving Mustangs is a life with a Mustang," he raved in one part of his essay. One thing's for sure; Chesher's significant other is going to have to be cool sharing affection with a Pony Car, as he swears also that "Mustangs are my one true love."
Wow. And I thought I was obsessed with my Mercedes. Mr. Cheshire claims it all began at six years old when he spotted a '68 black Fastback and inquired as to what kind of car it was. "That's a Mustang," his dad told him, and thus the obsession took root.
Congratulations Kory, get home safe, and if we see someone drooling on the hood of a 2010 Mustang in L.A., we'll be sure and say hey.
Stay tuned as we present live coverage from the L.A. Auto Show, and watch as Ford finally pulls the wraps off of the new Mustang they've been teasing us with for months.--Colin Mathews
