Saudi woman’s dream takes shape in the form of a black and yellow Mustang

  • The ford Mustang is a great vehicle because it’s been around for five decades and it has inspired people
  • Today we stand here with her very own vehicle, the 2018 model

JEDDAH: Ever since Sahar Nasseif’s trip to the US, she wanted a Ford Mustang — and her dream car was handed to her at Al-Jazira Vehicles Agencies Co.
Sahar Nasseif, a retired English literature lecturer, and her family came along to celebrate this event.
“I was in Orlando and everywhere I went I saw the Mustang on the roads and in the parking lots,” Sahar told Arab News.
“When I came back the royal decree was out. I found out when my son called me and said ‘Mom, you can drive now.’ At first I said ‘Don’t be silly.’
“After that I was jumping up and down with happiness.”
Sahar was very particular about the car she wanted: A black and yellow convertible Mustang, the yellow and black symbolizing her favorite football team, Al-Ittihad. Later the official Ford handle followed her on Twitter and was able to make her dream come true, as they promised publicly in a tweet.
On July 9, in the handover ceremony, Sue Nigoghossian, the general manager for Ford communications, did the honors of handing the car over to Sahar.
“When the royal decree was issued, we heard Sahar in the news mentioning that now she would buy her dream car, a black and yellow Mustang, so it was only natural for us to give it to her. Today we stand here with her very own vehicle, the 2018 model,” Nigoghossian said.
“The ford Mustang is a great vehicle because it’s been around for five decades and it has inspired people. Everybody loves a Mustang.”
