So my problem was – yes I was going near to where Max was waiting for me – but on a tight business schedule I did not know if I could find the time to set out to take a look at her.
But then – everything seemed to come together – I found a place and the time to rent a truck & trailer, weather was ok, a free evening showed up and so I went out into the countryside on that Sunday evening in early May 2015.
After two and a half hour driving out of the big city I finally pulled up to the house of the owner.
Together we took a look at her, everything was as expected, no surprises.
We did a short test drive, but on a small secondary road my courage ended earlier than Max‘ capabilities, so 75 Mph was all we did, errr – 55 of course, sorry… 🙂
So the deal was perfect, up on the trailer she went and just after nightfall I was back on my way into the city and to the place where Max would be waiting to be picked up for shipment to Germany.
That journey back alone was worth it all, if you and I meet some day, I must tell you the story in person. It involves cooking trailer brakes, a super-helpful gas station guy, a super-correct young police officer who pulled me over, unloading Max alone at the company and some raised eyebrows the next morning.
For me it was worth it all, I had found exactly the Mustang I was looking for, Max.
