Default Old and New

So I haven't posted in quite a while, but since my last post I've successfully relocated to where I'm from in the Phoenix area.

I'm working on Ford's Arizona Proving Grounds in the Northwest valley. For the last week or so there's been this '08/'09 Bullitt parked in the back with all the test cars. I thought it was strange since it's not new and it's not even the current model Mustang or anything, but it did have Michigan manufacturer plates.

Anyway, I'm leaving work today just about to get to the gate and I see that it's behind me. I turn out of the grounds and he follows me for 5 minutes or so until he has an opportunity to pass. I wave, he waves back, and two gearheads go on their way.

Sorry, no further point to this story, it just made me happy. The car is a true treasure, even at 127,000 miles!

Nathan, you work for Kett? I can't remember any of the other companys that hire 'proving ground' guys? I worked for Kett Engineering for a week!
I was a driver at GM down southeast Mesa area. It was cool seeing 'upcoming' cars and trucks before John Q. Public.

Where do ya live? Funny, my Mom lives in Bellevue WA. now and we lived in Scottsdale forever. Small world!
