Here’s popular Barrett-Jackson co-host April Rose, discussing her passion for the Ford Mustang vehicle, in her own words….

What is it about thousands of pounds of metal and four wheels that find home in our hearts? For me, the Mustang was my first love. Whether I’m walking by the salon at a Barrett-Jackson auction and catch a pristine fully restored ’67 GT500E Super Snake, or I’m driving back in my hometown Chicago on the way to the post office and see a ’66 coupe — hurt bad with the driver’s side door smashed in — that makes me circle around the block just to take another look. Mustangs have always captured my affection. Since I was little, I saw that pony and it meant a new start for me. Then when I was old enough to saddle up, it would take me on the path I chose. Poetic, dramatic? Sure. But when you’re little, sometimes all you have are your dreams.
