The Story

February 5th 2021 I lost my first car, a 2007 Mustang GT, in an accident because someone wasn't paying attention where they were going and t-boned me. The car was totalled.

Fast forward from the accident to February 23rd. After a lot of struggling with the at-fault's insurance company I finally got my payout, and as sad as I was that the Mustang was gone, I needed to get something else and accept what had happened.

After a few days of searching different websites, trying to decide whether to get another Mustang, or something completely different, is when I saw Naeoni. 2018, low miles, untouched, and my mind started wandering on all the things I would do to it!

The next day, February 27th, my dad and I drove out to Bridgewater Acura in New Jersey to check out the car in person. I asked them to pull the STI and a 2016 Mustang GT they had in inventory for me to test drive and solidify my choice.

I checked out the interior of the Mustang first, and it had all the features I would've wanted, but I wanted to sit in the STI as well before deciding to go for a drive in either. No sooner than I sat in that seat, did I fall in love. I ended up taking the STI out for a test drive and going around the roads in the area, it just felt RIGHT. I went back and signed the papers then and there.

That brings us to where we are today! Little by little I'll be turning Naeoni into my street to strip car. I loved the drag strip with the Mustang and even moreso now relearning how to race with a stick shift!
