Michael Green of Delano, Minn., was the lucky winner of Machine Design's "Drive the Living Legends" contest. The contest asked Machine Design readers to tell us their most memorable experience with a Ford vehicle, in 100 words or less. Mike's entry involved a 1997 Mustang Cobra and the good times he and his father shared cruising the country roads of Minnesota.

Mike, a mechanical engineer with Kaltec of Minnesota Inc., traveled to Ford country, namely Dearborn, Mich., on Sept. 11-12. While there, he toured the Dearborn Assembly Plant, Home of the Mustang, the Henry Ford Museum, and had a sneak peek at what's behind closed doors at Ford's Special Vehicle Team (SVT) garage. Finally, at the Dearborn test track, he grabbed some seat time in Ford's high-performance vehicles, including a 2003 Mustang Cobra.
