If you want the secret to a long-lasting marriage, you might want to consult with Pat and Lew Mesta. The couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last year, so they know how to keep the romance alive. When we met them at Mustang Week 2015, we got an idea how they have kept that magic in the relationship. It must be true love, because Pat had this car built for her husband as an anniversary present.
At that moment, we asked if she was willing to give spousal advice. Seriously, most of us would be thrilled with a surprise party attended by all our friends. However, Pat set out to surprise Lew with the Mustang of his dreams.
â€œMustang Fever hit Lew when we bought our first car as newlyweds in 1964â€¦ a 1965 Mustang coupe. Lew has had a new Mustang for most of our married life,â€ Pat Mesta explained. â€œAs we approached our 50th anniversary, I wanted to surprise Lew with something special. I picked Dennis Steppe of Rebel Kustom Paint because Dennis had done an excellent job of painting her 2008 Black Mustang Yellow with ghost Real Fire.â€
