Do you have pride in driving a Stang?

Every time I see a mustang when I'm driving mine, I feel like that guys my brother and I'm not afraid to go talk about our cars. Anyone have any stories on meeting other Stang owners?

Most are cool but I get some flack for having a V6 and also for being a girl. I ignore the ignorant people and talk to the cool people who aren't so quick to judge

I love my car. It might not be the fastest, the most good looking, or even the cleanest mustang, but its a mustang. And i wear that as a badge of honor. Also, turning heads isn't so bad either.

I have had 3 Mustangs over the years and have to say I love mine. I even have my 4 year old son saving for his own Mustang when he gets older! I always drive mine with pride!

Re: Do you have pride in driving a Stang?

Always with pride, and you can tell that by the way it looks. I don't like those who don't have pride in driving their Stangs or don't take care of them. Those who think they are better because they drive a V8, Shelby, Mach 1, etc and look down on those who drive a V6 are not true Mustang lovers...You have to appreciate them all, even there are a few you wouldn't own. And a girl owning a Mustang is almost hotter than the Mustang itself. Just my 2cents.

Re: Do you have pride in driving a Stang?

i agree completely. This is my fourth mustang and a friend of mine was with me as we were going to look at an 87 that he was interested in when he asked me the question about what it was with me and mustangs. I explained the whole story about when I was a kid and my dad and I would point out stangs on the road and we would always give ourselves whiplash turning to look at them. I grew up with a love for the car and I have never been disappointed with them. Every year they come out with a better one and it always stays in the same price range. Add a 100 hp and guess what still the same price. So now that I have picked up the 11 and I have been telling my dad about all the things I have been doing to it he jokingly brought up the idea of me driving back to Wisconsin from Washington when I get back from my deployment but only as a joke. What he doesn't know is I am driving it back and parking it in the driveway so neither one of us has to suffer whiplash looking at the stang.

On a side note lately I have been getting a lot of compliments from people who don't even drive mustangs. Which is nice its own sense but there is nothing like driving down the road with a herd of mustangs on a four lane

p.s. that friend of mine that asked me the question bought the 87 and is now in the process of restoring it, he was a camaro and chevelle boy up until now

Re: Do you have pride in driving a Stang?

i love being on the freeway and me and about 3 or 4 other mustangs are just bunched up, you dont even have to know the other drivers and you just know that they have the same pride as you as yall are just cruzin down the freeway passing other cars and having everyone stare and little kids point out the backseat window. great feeling.

Only two models I ever wanted, an early 64 1/2- 68 and a fox. I got my fox and couldn't be happier with it. It doesn't look the best but I am more worried about getting it in great mechanical shape before looks come in.

Re: Do you have pride in driving a Stang?

Couldn't have anymore pride!!!! whenever someone new gets in my car and we're driving along after about 15 minutes they're always like "Why are you waving to every mustang? and why are you breaking your neck to look at every mustang???" or why did that guy flash his lights??

Sometimes it's hard to explain the passion that bonds us all together....a lot of people don't understand it even after you explain it...they just like mustangs and think that's as far as it should go...but we all know better...it's a passion and an obsession and every single one of us has it

Yes I do. It still seems kind of unreal having such a beast in the driveway. I really like when another parks beside me or when you get the thumbs up goin down the road.

Re: Do you have pride in driving a Stang?

Every time i look at my mustang I wondr how in the hell did I ever get such a nice car I take a lot of pride in owning a stang I wash it at least three times a month because a clean stang is a happy stang and a happy and very proud owner, to me the mustang is the nicest car on the road and the only car I will evr own. I just wish I would have found out how great they are when I was younger.
LONG LIVE YHE MUSTANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Do you have pride in driving a Stang?

Its hard to not have pride- just park 3 or 4 Mustangs together in a parking lot, and wait. Before too long, random people will cruise through, taking pictures and posing their kids with the cars. I can't think of any other kind of vehicle that gets that kind of attention, except maybe street rods.

I also get swelled up with pride when I drive down the road and total strangers give me the thumbs-up.....

Re: Do you have pride in driving a Stang?

wow sorry i got to this thread late... but i absolutely have pride in driving my mustang. i have always wanted one, and have not owned a car that was not American made. the mustang, in my opinion, is the perfect semblance of American Muscle Cars and that is one of the many many reasons why i love owning one and driving one. i also agree with the point of seeing other mustang owners and considering them, to an extent, family. as a matter of fact, where i am parked right now in my resident parking lot in college, there are two other mustangs parked next to mine and i know that my car feels at home in its spot!

Bought my baby a year ago for 400 as a fix-ur-up and I'm in love. Never had a more reliable car and it's never let me down. Drove all winter and even in -10 one turn of the key and she starts. It's also a great feeling when there you drive a v6 stang on the winter and your passing 4x4s sideways going uphill in a snowstorm.(true story lol I had a running start )

Re: Do you have pride in driving a Stang?

I agree I'm very proud of my Mustang and of Ford and the car they built. I've owned 3 mustangs so far and have had very little problems with them, just the stuff you'd expect driving everyday.
I see a Mustang coming my way I sit up a little straighter and waive and smile we're all a brotherhood or so I think. At carshows I talk to people about their Mustangs it's a great feeling to be a owner a Mustang!

I definitely have pride in driving my mustang. Not only because it's American, but because of the legacy and history of the stang. Not stopping production when the other companies quit, persevering in the face of high gas prices and the influx of imports, the legendary racing heritage....its all part of the mustang name. I'm definitely proud to say I own a mustang, and that I plan to keep it forever so that I can teach my kids how to drive and maintain cars with it.

I hope I didn't go off topic here lol.

I'm in love with the whole mustang brotherhood. I got my whole family hooked to , when I go home they always tell me what kind they saw today and how good it looked. When I see a mustang coming my way I wave give them a blinker or thumbs up and getting it back makes you feel good. I love mustangs!

Being a girl and owning a 5-speed Mach 1 I get a lot of respect but I also get picked on a lot. But I love my Mach and I am very, very proud to own it. Us Mach 1 owners have our own little club.. We give each other head nods whenever we see another Mach.. Its great. Mach 1s FTW.
