Wtf I have never heard that before. Its kinda like how people say margaritas and wine coolers are girly drinks. If you love your car then that's all that matters. I'm looking to get a marurader here soon and people tell me that is an old man car. Oh well. I like it so I'm going to get one.

Personally, I think that sounds kind of silly. I've got some experience with judgement along the same lines kind of. Ask both of them if you are an immature person. You aren't driving a Barbie Jeep.

Back when I was still recovering from my motocross accident. I was driving the NastyStang at the time and had a handicap placard. I got blocked in by a cop and hassled all because from his medical opinion I didn't "look" like I was handicap nor that a Mustang was a vehicle someone handicap drives... Months later wife and I saw him on the news for being convicted of accepting bribes, etc.

Um, no. There are plenty of 40+ guys on here driving new edge Mustangs. New Edge Mustang is best Mustang. (well except for pre-1970)

Drive what you want. Before I retired I parked my Mustang beside the Lincolns and Cadillacs of the other managers. During the summer I parked my Harley in the same spot.

You will know when you need to drive something else. I once drove across country in a Camaro with two kids strapped in the back who couldn't see out. When I got home I traded the car for a van.

I agree to drive whatever you want.

But at the same time, I would consider a New Edge Mustang a teenagers car. It's a RWD peppy car with some torque that's now older and cheap to buy. It has the thrills to attract teenagers and the price where they can afford one. As a result, a lot of them are bought by them and that becomes the generalization.

So as a generalization I would say it's a teenagers car. But you should also drive whatever you want and not worry about it. I have my SHO and my buddies call it my grandpa car. At the end of the day, I see where they're coming from but I like the car and don't care so I drive it.

hell around here most the handicap people drive the jacked up trucks, specialty challenger, chargers, Camaros and mustangs and cops don't say a thing. im not mad....just annoyed that people who complain about not getting enough money for being handicap get to drive nice $35k+ vehicles.

as far as op goes. what do they drive? does your co-worker drive a mini-van. well he is just a soccer dad if he does. so he is going with his life choice options and must be jealous or mad at the fact you still have a car that is similar to what he would like to have.

is your coworker's name smuckers because it sounds like he's jelly

i can understand why he'd say that though. it seems like the typical car guy's life goes something along the lines of

>buy fun car when you're younger
>start family
>sell car for something more practical
>spend entire life regretting selling that car
>buy another one just like it when you're 60

so if you enjoy the car, **** what anybody thinks. i'll drive mustangs, ride motorcycles, and watch the teletubbies till i die homie

Lol. It wasn't a teenagers car in '03 so it's no more of one now. What does your coworker drive? Something along the lines of a Camry?
The demographic of who cars are used by changes with time and as their market value changes. A 2003 Mustang wasn't a teenagers car in 2003 simply because it was too expensive for your average teenager. Now that the car is 13 years old, it's not too expensive.

I highly doubt OP's coworker said it was a teenagers car based on how affordable the car was.

I figured it out... The OP's coworker is jelly like Bwal said but beyond that he doesn't want the OP getting any ass. The OP's wife also doesn't want him getting any ass.

Perfect score: 8/8

Yeah I've seen a few of them, too. I won't judge because everyone's got a story. Maybe they got hurt when they had the truck, etc. I was handicap not on disability.

I thought the situation was pretty amusing because he threatened to take me to jail because my placard wasn't coming up in his system. My fault I guess lol. My wife on the other hand wasn't very amused. It was so perfect to see his mug on the news a few months later lol.

I know a lot of people who went through all of those phases. My neighbor was lucky enough to eventually buy back the same 1968 Plymouth GTX he drove in high school. It is now fully restored.

If I could find my '66 coupe I would buy it back in a heartbeat. Worst car decision I made was getting rid of that car - young and dumb. With all the heartache and money I've put into other Mustangs, my '66 could have been flippin' sweet.

I bought my car before I had a child. I still have my 01 GT but I've been spoiled with work vehicles so I never needed to sell it.

It's paid off and garage kept. I pay 70 bucks a month full coverage and that's it.

I can see why people say it's a teenager car, but I still love it.

Now if you had a lowered riced out civic I could see the hate, but I didn't know people hated on mustangs...unless OP you rock a v6?
