Cruising in warm weather with the windows down. And with the windows down, I really get to appreciate the sound of those Bassani's out back.

The 2nd gear growl I hear against opposing traffic going through a stoplight, thanks to the Roush AB. That I can turn traction control off and pay tribute to one of my favorite numbers. That I don't have to hear crap about owning a 4cyl anymore. That I can now pass anyone in traffic whenever I need to, rather than wait for a massive gap and pray. That people both twice and half my age go out of their way to compliment me on my car.

What do you like the most about driving a mustang!

The acceleration on an instant, even with the crappy factory tune. The sound of the aftermarket exhausts when the window is down, or near shifts, and the looks I get from driving it. Also, that I am driving a 420HP AMERICAN muscle car.

Turning heads and getting compliments from folks of all ages. Hearing that unmistakable Mustang rumble. But mostly, flying down the highway with the top down and the speakers roaring.

1. It's really fast
2. Sounds great driving it, even stock
3. Styling of the S197 pushes all the right buttons for me
4. It's an American brand

Absolutely love the way the engine sounds during wot. Love hearing the exhaust system when accelerating and those babies are growling and turning heads.

I like that most people think the car is fast and gets terrible gas mileage.

In reality, it's slow but pulls down 30+ MPG on the highway with the cruise set at 62 MPH and looks damn good doing it.


Also, LOVE my glass roof.

Coming from a v6 Tiburon I wouldn't call these cars slow. Also the fact that its way bigger than the tib and still gets better gas mileage is amazing to me. Really shows how far technology has come in the last 10 years.

Ish is a Chevy fanboy at heart. Nothing would make that Mustang good enough. I think he has some deep self loathing issues and bought a Mustang to punish himself.

Dude I'm so jealous you have the glass roof. And they aren't doing the class roof in 2015 either.

I really like my Mustang, I would actually claim it was a great car if it had a Tremec.

Honestly, I have always preferred Fords over GM and Mopars over Fords.

When I was in college I came very, very close to buying a brand new 04 Mach 1 5spd in Azure blue. However, I decided my current job didn't pay enough to be comfortable with a new car payment at the time. So I never ended up with one.

As for being slow, I have become a bit jaded as my Mustang is the slowest car I have bought in about 8 years. Coming from an E55 AMG, EVO 9 MR, Z28 and Talon.

The glass roof is no moon roof or T-tops, but it's nice. Sucks to hear there is no glass roof option on the '15. Unless it has a moon roof or targa, I don't think I will look into getting one.

I like the way our new edge gauges look. I know it's a slow car but getting on the highway watching my rpm needle is awesome.

I like the wide *** tires cornering the asphault and the "pull" on a properly tuned Mustang. I especially love Muscle. (and 4 seats)

I think my favorite part without a doubt is the sound. Nothing sounds as good to me as my car. I also love having a stick car, although not unique to stangs obviously, it seems like getting a manual is easiest in a mustang.

I love that even chevy lovers can't deny our cars sound good. My girlfriend is a die hard vette girl and she says she has heard only one or two vettes that sound better than my stang 8) she knows how to make me smile lol that's for sure
