Re: mustang lingo

The review was typical European swill about an American car. All Yankee cars had drum brakes then, and bias ply tires. In 1965, Ford had better build quality than anything built over there. Euro cars were not built to cruise the interstate at 75 all day, in snow, in heat, on rough roads, etc. And the Mustang always gets compared to the best, such as the latest Porsche, which is still hand built.

Re: mustang lingo

The Mustang was marketed as a sporty car but in reality was a Naderized Falcon. The (planned)under steer alone made them dreadful handling cars. The Europeans had seen Rally prepared Falcons kicking butt on their circuit, and knew what Ford could build. Except for the engine, the Mustang was a disappointment after all the pre-release fanfare... Go read what Carol Shelby had to say about them, he wasn't initially thrilled about any joint project involving them... He said, "It's a secretary's car!"

Re: mustang lingo

dreamstang,
Be sure to sort the abbreviations and just list the "Mustang" relevant ones in your initial post.
