The 1964 Ford Mustang

Day 220 of My Italian Learning Journal*

On this day in 1964, a new type of automobile was unveiled, the Ford Mustang. At the time I was in the military and a few months later I purchased my first car -- a beautiful, dark-ivy green Mustang. The original Mustang was named after the World War II fighter plane. Almost 22,000 Mustangs were bought immediately. During its first year, over 400,000 Mustangs were sold. There is a story about a buyer in Texas who slept in a Ford showroom until his check cleared and he could drive home in his new Mustang. (Grammar corrections to my practice Italian script below are welcome.)
