The rental car is a red 2002 Convertible Mustang I was expecting speedy acceleration and lots of power, but it doesn’t feel any faster than my Maxima. It has a 3.8 liter V-6 with 190HP but I’m not too impressed. Having the top down is still fun and provides a great way to see the buildings in downtown Chicago. Lots of people look at us as we go by, probably because we’re the only convertible in the area with the top down. Then again, maybe they’re checking me out. If it’s the former, who cares if it’s 50 degrees out. I just turn the heat on full blast and carpe diem. Of course, carpe diem applies in the latter case as well.
