The Happy Place you drive your GT/CS to.

You must have a special place that you drive your GT/CS to....that is, a lonely road, or that big oak tree, a favorite drive in or diner, or on a highway so you can let'r rip...

Tell us your favorite place that you take your CS to....
Where it makes your world all at peace...and you can get back to yourself....

Where you can park, stand and lean on the fender, and cross your arms and look out at the sunset...

Where is that place for you?

Paul N.

I love driving my car when I drop off the kids to school. I think itís because itís their time; or maybe because it reminds me of when I was growing up. Or maybe itís because I just like driving it in the cool fresh morning hours.

From Fort Bragg to Pismo Beach south along the Highway 1 in California. This is some of the best scenery and drive for me. The roads are curvy and over looking the ocean, you may catch a perfect sunset driving along this road. Make a stop at Bodega Bay, Half Moon Bay, or Morro Bay and you got yourself
one heck of a sunset to see. I've taken many pictures along this road and it truly is a breath taking pleasure to behold. This is where I can be free and just leave my troubles behind for a few hours of driving pleasure. Just me and my Stang, listening to that engine roar as I shift into each gear winding down on that curvy highway. Really takes me back to my youth.

I enjoy driving my kids to school or to events. The smile on their faces when we pull up and other kids are looking at the car and pointing. They close the door and walk away, then look back and smile big with a wave. Then when they get home, they tell me about how the other kids really liked the car and thought it was cool.

Also just like picking up pizza with my daughter. She likes to go and watch people give the thumbs up or honk horns.

Hi gang,

We live right outside Rocky Montain National Park in Colorado. So my favorite drive is into the park, where we always see elk and sometimes big horn sheep, can see Longs Peak (14,000+ feet) and the whole front range. Its about 75 degress today and humidity in the single digits . . . . I hear the Mustang calling me . . . I gotta go.

Have fun! Dave

You guys are probably going to hate me for saying this.....but I honestly get out a folding chair in the garage, prop my feet up on something, with a cold drink in my hand, and just look at my GT/CS......sometimes I then fall asleep. That is my favorite spot . (and, yes, I do drive it around too ). Casey

I have a 30 mile run that has a small stretch of highway (where I can bring her up to 65 - 70mph), and the rest is mainly country winding back road. The drive is in southern NH and threads through scenic farm / horse country.
This time of year is especially scenic as we drive past apple orchards and farm stands that are all decked out for Fall. All my kids (who are grown up now) as well as my wife are familiar with what we call "the Stang run."
One of the most favored rituals is to stop at a country store early in the AM on a Saturday or Sunday and have a breakfast sandwhich on one of the benches in the town common. Typical New England.
After owning my car for 12 years, I can say I still get excited and feel blessed to own a great example of a vintage Mustang.


it\'s great to own a 68\' free or die

I have to agree with Mustang 1 There is no other beautiful drive than down the california coast on Hwy. 1 Especialy in Monterey on the 17 mile drive. You have the Pacific ocean on one side and the beautiful golf links of monterey on the other. It will definitely take your mind off the road !!!
A must drive road. Steve.

I agree w/ JBART, my CS is my happy place. CASE12 I do something similar, sometimes I just go into the garage and say a prayer of thanks to Lord Jesus for blessing me with my beautiful wife, kids, home and our GT/CS Convertible.
Favorite drives, home from work, when I pick up my special needs daughter and step on it onto the 101 on ramp. She laughs out loud and says "I love that noise!"
