In 1964 I attended The New York World's Fair where The Ford Motor Company just released the newest sensation - The Mustang.
As a baby boomer I was smitten with "my dream car". My dad died suddenly and I worked for the benefit of my mother and sisters - and when the veterans benefits kicked in, mother co-signed for my first new car - a new original issue 1964 Mustang. Payments were $69.00/mo.
