Doesn't matter your age or what you drive as long as your happy with what you have!!

Rob04Mach1 I'm a "Performance Car - Car Guy" and I will switch from Ford to Chevy and back and forth. My true love is Big Tire, Big Motor, Blower sticking out of the hood, in your face, insane HP.

I've now had over 50 what I would consider "really nice" Performance Vehicles, but I started with Mustangs and I always go back to them. I had Mustangs when I was 16, I had them in my 20's, 30's, & 40's , and I'm still driving them at 56. And for the record I bought it from a 78 yr old orig owner.

I'd be the first to say there are way to many Mustangs out there and the sad truth is to the un-Stanged there's no difference from a 4 Cyl to a Super Snake. So whenever I go back to a Stang I make sure it's unique, I make sure it has good to crazy weight to HP ratio, and I make sure it sticks out









And if someone don't like my Fat Bald Old Ass getting out of it who gives a chit, after they've owned them for 5 decades then they can talk to me

It's a matter of how many kids you have and how much effort you're willing to go through to do it. It can be done but it's not really practical or convenient and there are many much easier options.

With how much room modern car seats take up, I honestly don't know how you managed to properly fit on backwards in the back of a NE. I can easily a car seat in my Grand Cherokee. But in order to properly fit it with everything at the correct angle, I have to move the front seat a little bit and the Jeep has WAY more room than the Mustang.

I just bought another car that would make a car seat easier lol, although I take my kids in my mustang from time to time

Usually people who have something negative to say is usually because they are jealous, or they just don't understand that sometimes you want to own something that doesn't look like an appliance on wheels in the sea of neutral colors.

Long tubes, Mac pro chamber, and some sort of chambered mufflers sounds pretty good on an n/a car.

I drove a v6 new edge once and it was so slow I couldn't help but laugh. Back when I had a 99 Ford Explorer Sport with off road Y pipe, ported TB, tuned for 93 octane, full exhaust and electric fan, I would beat bone stock V6 new edge mustangs. Sure the Explorer had mods but it had the aero dynamics of a loaf of bread and the weight factor.

The V6 mustang was always under powered and painfully slow up until 2011. This sealed their reputation as being a girl or teenager car. Couple this with the fact that kids think it's the fastest thing going and the butt hurt is so real when you try to tell them otherwise, their reputation has been forever sealed.

The v8 and American sports\muscle cars will always be the norm. Anything else just seems out of place in this scene. It's just the way it is.

And don't get me started on the exhaust debate. The V6 will never sound like a v8.

Given the state of the economy and imports at a low price point with decent styling, I see a lot more hyundais Hondas and kias with the younger crowd

I've done almost everything to my car myself, and it is definitely no longer a teenage girl car. It is low, loud, and decently quick. And no longer all that comfortable, not that new edges ever were.

I have a Subaru that I dd when that can substitute as my grown man car. Although it does have tinted windows and black wheels.
