About “Baby”

The story is, I bought a 1988 Mustang Notchback. I didn't want to but, all the TAs I looked at were a little out of my price range. I knew that out there some where there would be someone with a TA that wanted my mustang. Low and behold!! There she sat. In the back yard of this kids house. Turns out one of my friends knew the kid and was a avid stang owner and loved my car! So we did the trade with some stipulations! He was supposed to make the TA back to original but didn't. But, I've had fun putting the TA back together. I love my TA and I wouldn't trade her for nothing!!
