Mustangs & Milkshakes

Mustangs & Milkshakes

When was the last time you jumped in your car and drove? No plans, no map and no idea where you’re headed? Those “let’s see where the open road takes us” opportunities are rare, but when they happen, that’s when you find the best best kept secrets! I spent last week, just like that. Driving around in the new Ford Mustang, with no set plan and just seeing where the road leads. One of those roads (and there were many), led me to the coolest retro styled Roadhouse, where I found the best milkshakes in Jozi. Growing up in the 90’s, we didn’t have drive through fast food joints and Roadhouses were all the rage. They were also the place to go if you wanted a thick and delicious shake to wash down a seriously loaded burger, or an oozing toasted cheese. Ya know, the ones wrapped in paper with a little gherkin on top? I miss those days! So what an awesome throwback it was to find Kota Joe Roadhouse and get a blast from the past – but this time, in a true American Muscle Car.

But to be fair they do serve an array of different purposes, primarily they move people, and in some cases products or even animals and in sometimes all of the above. Families are people movers biggest target market, and considering I quite happily fall into this category, I was quite chuffed when given the keys to the Mazda 5 2.0 Individual for the week. Ok, wifey and I do only have one child, and I’d imagine families with a few more munchkins would better suit the Mazda 5’s, nevertheless Vaughn, our three year old son has many fiends and thus this would be the ultimate test for the Fives family friendly tendencies – a whole clan of the messy unruly little buggers. I’ve always admired the Mazda 5, the previous generation at least. There isn’t a whole lot designers can do with essentially a box on wheels, but the Five was smart, stylish and even quite handsome if I may say so. Sadly, new Five has brought in Mazda’s new flowy, messy, Japanese Manga styling and…
