Love is a wonderful thang. When you find love in all the right places, it can be a lot of fun, as a pair of Mustang enthusiasts in Florida recently discovered. And their mutual love of Mustangs apparently sealed the deal:
Ford Mustang lovers Vickie Sue Kilpatrick and Ronnie Cox found the perfect way to mix two loves — they got married at the Bozard Ford Lincoln Mercury dealership in St. Augustine.
…At the conclusion of the ceremony the Coxes were introduced as man and wife.
The band kicked in.
The song that launched the marriage: “Mustang Sally”.
But there’s more to the story than two people just getting married in a Ford dealership, surrounded by heavy pony metal:
Mustang aficionados Vickie Sue Kilpatrick and Ronnie Cox said they met in 2007 at Family Worship Center in St. Augustine and quickly bonded over their mutual love of their favorite cars, The (Jacksonville) Florida Times-Union reported Monday.
“We hadn’t talked three minutes and we were talking Mustangs,” said Kilpatrick said after Sunday’s wedding at Bozard Ford Lincoln Mercury in St. Augustine. “We can spot a Mustang by a tail light in the dark.”
We’ve all been there. We love our Mustangs. (Even still, I’d be curious to know the ratio of marriages to divorces based on Mustang love.)
American Muscle sends our heartfelt congratulations to the newlyweds!
