As reported by The Hill, President Obama checked out the all-new 2015 F-150 pickup and refreshed Focus, but his attention was grabbed by the 2015 Mustang. He felt the pony car calling his name and decided to get inside, proclaiming, “This is an American car right here, this Mustang. That’s beautiful.”
The President must miss being a regular citizen and driving his own car, as he only rides in Secret Service-sanctioned vehicles these days. “I have to say I love Secret Service. I love the beast that they put me in. But I just had a chance to look at these new Mustangs, and I got to say that the Mustangs had a little more style, a little more flavor.”
Obama was in Detroit to do more than to look at cars; his visit was about celebrating Detroit’s recovery after the doldrums of 2009. He told the crowd that he visited Michigan “because this state proves no matter how tough times get, Americans are tough.”
The President and Vice President will continue their three-day tour in Arizona and Tennessee.
