A presidential Mustang ride
What was the hardest thing Bill Clinton had to leave behind when moving into the White House? Rumor goes it was his 1967 Mustang convertible.
“As the story goes, Clinton truly admired the Mustang. For starters, he had the car refurbished after taking ownership. Shortly thereafter he was regularly spotted cruising in the car from Little Rock to Hot Springs, then back again. In fact, on Sundays he would often take his family out for a cruise in the convertible. One notable instance of Clinton and his Mustang involves his 46th birthday. On that day he and Hillary Clinton are said to have gone for a ride, with Clinton wearing his Hot Springs High School sweater and Hillary wearing a vintage high-school skirt. There’s no doubt about it, Bill Clinton had caught the Mustang bug.”
As you probably know, presidents are not allowed to drive themselves around, and Clinton reportedly only drove his Mustang while being president in April 1994 at the Charlotte Speedway… during a celebration for the Mustangs 30th Anniversary.
