Mustang V6 Magazine? Sounds good to me!

Someone should definitely make a Mustang V6 Magazine. If you think about it, the majority of the Mustangs made are V6's, so why have us sixer owners been the outcasts of the Mustang world? Just because my car has a 3.8L V6 doesn't mean it's not capable of high performance, just look at the 2011 Mustang V6. All the little ricers with their coffee can mufflers have their own magazines with all sorts of hot models, so why can't we have our own magazine?

Re: Mustang V6 Magazine? Sounds good to me!

It's a touchy situation. I know we spent a lot of time talking about it in the other thread. Someone (or multiple people) basically has to commit a considerable amount of time, effort and money to get it started...and then there's always the possibility that it won't be successful, and in these times, no one can afford to take a financial hit like that.

I, along with many others here on the forum would love to see a v6 magazine start up, but I'm not sure that it would make survive with just v6 mustangs, as someone else mentioned in the other thread, a magazine with v6 mustangs, camaros and challengers might work.

You really have to look at your consumer base, who the magazine is going to appeal to. There are plenty of people that drive v6 and v8 mustangs just for the "mustang" name and couldn't give two ****s about modding.
Up here in central Wisconsin, v6 mustangs are driven by older women and (get this) younger guys, but they don't mod them at all. Well, some do, but they put things like altezzas and Advanced Auto Parts hood scoops on their cars. Plus, there are plenty of people who find themselves in a v6 mustang as a starter car...either for financial reasons or to see if they like the rwd, 2 door scene. Then they move up to the v8 level or a different car if they didn't like the experience. At that point, someone is not going to spend thousands of dollars to mod their v6 if they're going to buy a v8 or a different car in a year.

The market specifically for v6 mustangs is growing, but I don't think it's reached the capacity for it's own magazine...maybe an e-magazine, something in this manner to feel out a response, and if there's a healthy response, possibly take the magazine to the next step, but initially, a full fledged monthly subscription type magazine is probably not the best idea.

The point of Mustang V6 magazine would be to have a forum for V6 owners to showcase what they have accomplished by modding their sixers. And just like every other car magazine their would be advertisements. But the best part will be to have a bunch of hot models in bikinis draped all over our cars.

I think in principle its a great idea. There are a ton of V6 owners out there that dont have the same accommodations that the v8 guys take for granted. The issue is getting the target market to buy into a magazine and pay for it. Magazine sales are slipping more and more each year and its all going to go to the internet sooner or later.

I am also willing to bet more V8 owners modify their mustangs than V6 owners past exhaust/rims.

Many thought it was a good idea the last time it was brought up...

Please move all discussion over to the original thread.
