The famous pony car, made by the Ford Motor Company, is the longest production pony car to date. It is well known for it's performance to dollar value and has the largest aftermarket support than any other car (yes even more then your LT1 or your civic). This car is a legend in the car industry; So well yes it was the first muscle car to come with a 4 cylinder... it didn't get discontinued either. Also another interesting point, the most widely known engine on the planet is actually the mustangs infamous 302/5L motor, so many people who know nothing about cars will approach a mustang owner and ask them if it has 5.0L in it, when in fact it hasn't been in a mustang since 1995. Just to let you know (with the exception of the 2000 cobra R and GT500) the 1996-2004 mustang GT uses a 4.6L SOHC modular motor (modular is not a pushrod motor), and the 1996-2004 cobra uses a 4.6L DOHC modular motor; The 2005-2010 uses a 4.6L SOHC 3v modular motor and now, as alot of people have heard, the 2011 GT is equiped with the 5.0L DOHC, one of the most best motors in production currently. So please, don't walk up to any mustang owner and ask if it has a 5.0L or 302 in it. It makes you look like you know shit and the models produced that DO have them, have badges on the fenders usually. The best models produced to date:
1969-1970 Boss 429, 1969-1970 Boss 302, 1971 Boss 351, 1967 GT-350 R, 1993 Cobra R, 1995 Cobra R, 2000 Cobra R, 2003-2004 SVT Cobra, 2011 GT500.
"Dude is that your mustang?" ..."yep"......"That's sweet!"......"I know". Just like that.
An American legend. The original pony car and muscle car, born on April 17th 1964. The car all other manufacturers tried tried and are still trying to emulate. 1964-1973 first generation Mustangs are considered classics, 1974-1986 were not so good. 1987-1993 are the popular Fox body, and 1994 to present Mustangs are sweet, esp. 1999-present. A new generation will begin for model year 2005.
Ultimate Mustangs include the 1969-70 Boss 429, Any Shelby Mustang, any Cobra, and any Saleen, Mach 1, Boss 302, GT's, etc. GT's are always great and are very reasonably priced.
To everyone who is bashing the Mustang, a few words. Camaros and Firebirds may be quicker than most GT's, but 1) They look like crap (except WS-6 Trans Am) and 2) I'd like to see either of them step up to the 2003 Cobra or any Saleen, and 3) Oh wait, GM discontinued them because they can't sell any.
For the Japanese cars will the silly winey exhaust.....putting 500 HP in a Civic is like putting Granite Counter Tops and a Plasma TV into your mobile home at the trailer park....why bother? Why not spend the money on a nicer unit first? Now, a 3000 GT or Supra is nice, but a stock Saleen s351r with 510 HP, yes stock with 510, will eat any stock Japanese car (including NSX), and most souped up ones. Put a few dollars under the hood of that Saleen and look out, no beefed Japanese car will touch it.
Mustangs are the best.
Dude, I just spend $90,000 on my Honda Civic and put 17 turbos on the 75 HP 4 cylinder, and that Mustang Saleen s351r just beat me by 9 car lengths.
A car with a huge power and race potential that is ruined by 90% of it's drivers thinking their v6 model is a Ferrari. Also a small percentage of drivers who think they are immune to rice, and proceed to put "GT" and "COBRA" emblems on their v6 mustangs.
Mustang Ricer: Holy shit look at that ricer!!
Knowledgable Mustang Driver: Um, just because you put the cobra emblem on your car doesn't mean your car can touch a stock Evo...
A World War II piston fighter aircraft. Made better by adding the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, kicked the luftwaffe's butt back to Germany and then some. It is one of the best aircraft ever flown and certainly one of the most graceful. Is armed with six .50 caliber browning M2 machine guns, and capable of phenominal range and speeds in excess of 430 mph. The D variant was the most numerable and is still seen at airshows and racing at Reno. Also known as P-51.
P-51A - First version, powered by allison v-1710, 4 machine guns
A-36 - Army Dive bomber version

1979-1993 Third Generation: the popular Fox body
1994-2002 Fourth Generation: Nicest stylings since the 60's, and got a 4.6 after 94.
2005- ? Fifth Generation. Came out a few months ago with "retro styling" a theme made popular by chrysler's P.T Cruiser (i.e. P.T Loser).
Mustang owners tend to be very prideful in their cars, which comes off to everybody else as arrogance. There is a constant battle between Mustang, and Camaro owners as to which is better. While they both have their strong points, they both make a terrible daily car for anyone outside single people, as their rear seats are cramped, and they offer minimal trunk space. They suck in the winter too.
Both however are the obvious smart choice for someone who wants bang for the buck. Talk to anyricer and wannabe racer on the streets. Mustangs are typically the thing to try and beat. but it won't happen unless you put stupid money under the hood, and then you have a highly modified jap car that's still gonna have no resale value. atleast a modified stang will fetch you...

An American sports car introduced in April, 1964, as part of Ford's 1965 model year line-up. Originally available in coupe and convertible styles, it later added a fastback option. Notable models include the '69-'70 BOSS models (302/429), the '65-'67 Shelby-built models (G.T.350/G.T.500), and the '69-'73 and '03-'04 Mach 1 models. The Ford Mustang underwent a major redesign in 2005. It now bares resemblance to the '68 fastback models.
