Sask. Premier Brad Wall takes charity Mustang for a spin

Happiness is Brad Wall behind the wheel of his dream car — a replica 1968 Shelby Mustang decked out in Saskatchewan Roughrider colours.

Happiness is Brad Wall behind the wheel of his dream car — a  replica 1968 Shelby Mustang decked out in Saskatchewan Roughrider colours.

Saskatchewan's premier was all smiles as he took the gleaming vehicle for a spin in front the Legislative Building.

But it was all for a good cause.

Owned by a group of private donors, the muscle car is being sold with the money going to an Alzheimer's charity and minor football. 

Wall said the toughest part for him was careful driving in front of the auto body specialists who had overhauled the classic car.

"I was pretty worried about that," Wall said. "They worked pretty hard on it."

The charities are both dear to Wall's heart. He's coached football for years and notes his his grandfather died of Alzheimer's disease.
