Ford Mustang Voted Manliest Car On The Planet
Well it seems that a leading men’s grooming brand The Bluebeards Revenge, did an email survey in August and the Ford Mustang was voted The Manliest Car on the Planet. While this may come as no surprise to Mustang fans, it may surprise you to hear that Bluebeards Revenge is not from around here, they are from the UK.
Yeah, I know. Do they even know what a Mustang is in Britain? Well, of course they do. But to beat out such other manly cars as the Dodge Viper, Aston Martin DB7 (that seems old), Range Rover (goes perfect with tea and crumpets), Hummer H1 (now there is a manly beast to slay), Porsches, Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Corvettes, Audis and others, it is a little shocking.
Check out Bluebeard’s reason for the survey:
“Our brand is marketed as the world’s manliest grooming range as it’s designed for men with tough stubble. We would like to think that we stand for everything that is masculine in today’s society, which was why we set out to crown planet Earth’s most manly car.”
Now, there is no telling who they surveyed – monks in a monastery, prisoners since the ’80s, the Taliban. But two things we know – all most likely had beards and the majority chose the Mustang. You have to take all the victories you can get and walk proudly with your chest pressed out. Should we all grow beards in honor of this survey? No. But our respect for their evolving taste in cars can be appreciated as we pick up a case of Newcastle Ale and raise a pint to Bluebeards Revenge.
Also worth noting were the 10 Least Manly cars according to the survey. Can you guess what they were? I’ll give you a hint…one is a Ford, one is a hybrid, one is square-ish, a couple are ridiculous, and one is obvious.
