DT COW: Commenter of the Week: Welfare Queens and Bottles Edition

The Fox body 5.0 Mustang is a sweet rear wheel drive V8 powered coupe that is well depreciated today, but also an icon for mullett sporting trailer denizens throughout the West Virginia hill country.  We did a feature on a minty clean 5.0 and got hilarious comment from a reader, the last bit of it here:

I guarantee if I took this car back to my hometown the welfare queens with 6 kids and a love of Jeebus would be throwing themselves at me. If I drove the 2002 BMW just below this someone would throw a bottle at me and call me the British term for a cigarette.

Congrats to AbnMike for his perfect commentary on the 5.0, read the rest of it here - and his prize is a picture of a Mustang with a 5.0 liter V8 in his hometown of Coronado.  We assume that anyone who has 'traveled the world' and now 'lives on Coronado island' with the user name AbnMike (Abn =airborne?) is/was in the US Military and so we will ad a few more military themed photos from this year's Coronado Festival of Speed

Thanks from all of us if you are a serviceman or veteran - but regardless it was an excellent comment!
