Why do we drive mustangs?

Just wondering why we all drive or love mustangs? It is the attention they get. For the woman or guys I guess haha. Or for the thrill of the ride?

Re: Why do we drive mustangs?

I love all types of cars......including bowties. But the Mustang is something Ive always wanted as a kid.Im on #5 now I dont think I will ever stop.The sound of a Mustang with full exhaust is like no other.I drive them to get away from the stress of everyday life,they make me smile.I can wash her in the driveway then sit in a fold out chair in the garage drinking a beer and just stare for hours.

Re: Why do we drive mustangs?

That's a great question! For every Mustang lover, there is a Corvette lover or a BMW lover ect. I think that cars are like women (or men if your a woman) and you have to get just the right fit for you. Once it fits, your stuck for life (hopefully). I love Mustang because it fits. It feels right, fits my body and makes me feel good and I giggle like a child when I have fun in one..

Simple, I was raised on Mustangs. From my dad 67' GTA with a bottle fed 460 in it to my very first car 66' 289 HiPo to my 11 GT500. There were a lot of mustangs in the family, too many to name. Only one family member was a turn coat, my uncle was all Chevy.

My 4th mustang I've owned currently. If the mods weren't readily available, I prob wouldn't have one(sorry). I've also owned 2 trans am's, 2 impallaSS. The main reason that I own the car I have is the styling and 575rwhp.

I drive mine cuz since I was a young boy the styling and concept if the mustang was a bench mark for a legend. I like the fact that great names have been associated with the mustang: Saleen, Shelby, and Roush. Build on tradition and history every mustang has a story and that is why I drive mine.

Bonus it can be customized to each individual person that symbolizes who they are.

Re: Why do we drive mustangs?

Dad was a Ford guy and Mustangs were the coolest affordable Ford in my youth... Mustangs came out when I was in 4th grade; I remember really wanting one from an early age...

Re: Why do we drive mustangs?

I was raised on stories of my dad's 64 1/2. I kinda had to love them! It's about the only car I like. Sure mine gets attention, I don't care for that though.

Re: Why do we drive mustangs?

The look, sound, feel and history behind the icon. Plus it's uniqueness and the flow of the lines...I could stare at it all day.

Re: Why do we drive mustangs?

Too many reasons to list LOL, but we'll go with:
Styling Sound Feel

You know right away from sight or sound that its a Mustang, then the feeling of real V8 power when you mash the throttle (even in stock form). Add to that all the available mods and styling accessories available to make it unique. All that makes it nearly perfect in my book.

Re: Why do we drive mustangs?

Honestly at heart I'm a Trans Am guy above anything else, partially I think its cuz that's what I grew up around. Never been the type to discriminate against mustang, camaros, vettes, or challengers; if it's an American V8 and rear wheel drive I usually like it in some manner... But in my ears the mustang has always sounded better even when stock, no doubt about that.

FOXES!

I pretty much grew up with the Fox. My dad was a GM guy, still is. He owns a Trans Am, and will NEVER put it up against any of my cars at the track. He knows whats up!
Ever since I was 16 years old and I rode in my buddies Capri, I fell in love with Mustangs. Didn't end up owning one until about 6 years ago, but now I'm on my 4th. I'll never be without one again, I don't care if I have to live in the damn thing!

Re: Why do we drive mustangs?

I have loved mustangs since I was 13 (when I saw a beautiful 67 fastback) and was very surprised my dad actually got a stang for me as my first car
Especially since my dad likes chevy better but still likes anything american made like me except ford comes first
To me mustangs look and sound the best and can be as unique as the person driving it and it helps that they are somewhat affordable
They are just all around awesomeness!!

Re: Why do we drive mustangs?

For me it was simple...when I was around 14 a highschool friend took me for a ride in his Fox Body mustang that was black, 3-4" cowl, wide chrome rims and of course...the vortex under the hood. That car snapped my neck back fast when he punched it and I was in love.

I got my 98' GT...with plans to do everything to it but ended up just driving it. Put 100K miles on it with only routine maintenance, no problems until 110k-ish when the upper intake cracked leaking coolant. Just a great car.

Now I have the 03' Roush and of course...it's simple muscle, reliable and if you keep your foot out of it...average on gas.

Great cars with tons of aftermarket support, a legendary history and just great style.

Re: Why do we drive mustangs?

had great events and meet great mustang owners so I stuck with them.

Well my story is a little bit different. I was ending my year tour in Iraq and wanted a new car when I got back. Cars were never really a buggy to me and so I owned a 07 Mazda 6i( in it's defense it's a fun gas saver) however when I got back I wasn't sure what I wanted. So thinking I wanted an rx8 I went to a friend of mine who works at a dealership and he just had pulled the mustang off the truck and he new it was the perfect car for me.so after he let me take it home for bout 3 days u feel in love with the classic styling the power and the ability to work on it was way sold me. Now I am planning on opening up my own performance shops. Here is a pix o what started the rest of my life.

That's really cool man. Since the 60's, there have always been stories of soldiers coming home and buying mustangs as soon as they got back. Nice to see the tradition still alive today.

I ain't knocking the fox body. They are what brought me over the fence from government motors.

Bc it's part of me I'm lost without my mustang.... The sound, rumble of it in idle, the power it truly is a horse on wheels.

Re: Why do we drive mustangs?

Im 39 now and fell in love with the mustang when I was in highschool (FOX era) and waited all these years to buy one(kicking myself for waiting so long) but I now know that I will never be without a mustang again. In the year I have owned my car I have driven 29,000 miles of pure enjoyment, the mod bug has bitten and has improved my car from stock appearance and performance, and I have made a lot of friends in the various clubs I am a member of.
