San Francisco’s Cassandra Anderson won herself a custom 1965 Mustang at today’s 21st Autumn Get-Together at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds. The bright red Mustang served as a special year-long promotion between Goodguys, CBS5 and San Francisco based radio station Live 105.
For Anderson, a project manager at a bay area based biotech firm, winning the Mustang was a dream come true, literally. She told the assembled crowd after winning the car how she and her family drove from Washington D.C. to their new home in San Francisco in beige on beige ‘65 Mustang in the 70s. Ever since that cross country trip she’d wanted one saying it was “her dream to own a ’65 Mustang.”
An automotive enthusiast for years and a regular at bay area hot rod events like the Goodguys shows, Billetproof and Jimmy’s old car Picnic, Anderson first learned of the Mustang giveaway when she attended the West Coast Nationals in August. “After filling out an entry form at the August show, I went to the Live 105 website and entered the contest every single day for over a month,” she said with a smile. “The radio station finally called me just this week to tell me I was a finalist. When I drew the 15th key in today’s contest, I was pretty sure I was going to win it. Ever since I was a kid, 15 has been my lucky number!”
And just like that, the pretty girl with the pink flower in her hair drove off with the car she’d always dreamed of.
