Are All Mustangs Retarded?

Driving home today, merged onto interstate, so I jumped on it. It shifted at about 65 or 70 and when it did, my alternator light came on. No squealing or odd noises. After a few miles it went off. Any ideas?

New belt, no sign of slippage. That's what I thought, also

What is retarded is not saying what year this car is, any other symptoms, whether you took the 10 minutes to pull the alt and take it to autozone/advanced to get checked for free etc...

As much as I hate to admit it the cheaper Mustangs like beat to **** foxes, SN95s and Edges are falling into the hands of what we'd all "ricers" if they drove a 4 banger. I have not seen this as much with the F body crowd, probably because a decent LS1 still commands a premium. You can get a 94/95 GT for like $1500 tho... sad...
