Jokes aside, this new Mustang is the first one they've produced I could seriously see myself buying. I love that they've got an IRS and an optional turbo-4. And they've kept the honking V8 for traditionalists. It's a nice way to bring an American icon into the 21st century. Pretty, too.

I got t-boned in my crappy little suzuki the other day.  Other parties fault, so his insurance is covering everything, including the rental of course.  And what do they rent me?  A charcoal colored 2014 Dodge Charger.  After driving that piece of engineering perfection for almost a week, I have decided that Ford can keep its Mustangs, because the Dodge is the greatest performance vehicle I have ever driven.  I am going to cry in a few days when I have to take it back.

A bunch of frat boys already did this.  But it was a VW instead of a Mustang.  And it was an English professor's living room instead of The Empire State Building.

I know that's it's not a kind thought, but I just can't help myself. Whenever I look at the front of the new Mustang the headlights just look too low and sunken in with an awkward smile. I can't help but think that the new mustang looks like it has downs syndrome.

Actually, Ford already did this when the Mustang first came out.

First car I owned was a '67 Mustang GT.  390 big block, fastback, cherry red, fark me.  Old man, who had a good barometer on cars, bought it for me for $500.  It even ran for a year. I dropped in a 428SCJ engine, because a friend had one in Visalia, 400 miles away, bought some ripple walls, because I could, and for the most part felt good to be the king in my junior year.  Blew the engine, rebuilt it myself, whilst making gas station wages @ $3.25/hour, and assorted side bets on street races, before I had to part with my cherry.  Goddamn me to hell for ever selling it.

And to think that way back when a kid could have some serious Detroit muscle while only making $3.25 an hour.  The only problem I see is "cherry red".  That car looked better in black, but if you offered me a red one I probably wouldn't complain.  Of course, I think all cars look better in black.  It's not racist or anything.

In other words, they managed to make a Mustang II with Hippie-Boost, alongside the American-sized engines(V6 and V8).  Apparently Ford forgot that the Mustang is not meant to be "environmentally friendly", but as an affordable-to-the-masses car that can scare the fark out of people not accustomed to thunder in the engine compartment.

That's the Aston Martin part of the car that seems to be as common as Hippie-Boost(the part of the car that makes it feel like it has Down's Syndrome).

Combined with him and the base jumpers who just got busted, you'd think they could just put up a challenge on twitter or something.  Some kid would probably just drive one up the staircase.
