Evolving Mustang Ownership

Kelly's ascension to Boss 302 ownership was not dissimilar to a lot of us. First there was a 1966 coupe, followed by a 1967 coupe with a 271 HP, and finally a 1969 GT coupe with a 351 4-speed. Each step up saw a bump in cubic inches and horsepower. Each subsequent Mustang kept feeling like he was tracking toward that ultimate goal of Boss 302 ownership.

With a look of aggression and anticipation, Trans Am/Corvette guy peered over and gave an antagonistic nod looking to settle the score. With that, both cars hammered down and just like before, the Boss 302 began pulling away, though this time there wasn't a conceding lift.

He listed the Boss in the local paper and a new buyer from Vancouver Island came to the mainland and purchased the car. Maybe there was nothing left to do after owning his dream car, but as soon as the car pulled out of the driveway he started getting seller's remorse.
