Married Mustang Maniacs Relieve Spouses Of Mustang Freaks
Just when you thought your spouse was a little too obsessed with the iconic pony car known as the Ford Mustang, news breaks that there are much more obsessed Mustang fans out there. You can save thousands by not having to call a psychiatrist-laden intervention.
Ford Mustang lovers Vickie Sue Kilpatrick and Ronnie Cox got married in a Ford showroom in St. Augustine, Florida Monday, Feb. 22, 2010. Wedding bell cutouts were hung at the entrance to the service department and Ford Motor Co.’s signature blue and silver adorned a balloon arch in the dealership showroom as the obsessed bride and groom said their vows.
“We hadn’t talked three minutes and we were talking Mustangs,” said Kilpatrick shortly after she became Vickie Sue Cox on Sunday afternoon. “We can spot a Mustang by a tail light in the dark.” “Mustang” is etched in their wedding bands. “I even buy video games with Mustangs in them,” Cox said.
Other spouses would suspect their ‘Stang-obsessed significant others to be “car-bangers”, an underground undertaking uncovered by the investigative news team at “Kids In The Hall” several years ago. But Sue was not surprised when Cox proposed 6 months ago and asked if she would see about having their wedding at the Bozard Ford Lincoln Mercury dealership by the outlet malls.
The dealership made the event special by decorating Mustangs in his and hers motifs. They had a white convertible with veil on one side and a black coupe with bow tie on the other.
Another nice surprise came from Bill Ford Jr., executive chairman of the company and great-grandson of founder Henry Ford. He gave the Coxes a book, “The Mustang Dynasty” inscribed with a personal note.
A band played after they exchanged vows, and played “Mustang Sally”, of course.
