    As a senior citizen I'm curious-how many other old guys are buying Mustang GTs? When I traded in my E350 (for my 19 GT) the look on the salesman's face was priceless.
    I'm wondering how much of an anomaly I might be and if not, how many other "older enthusiasts" are enjoying their GTs?
    I get questions constantly at the car wash (typically from Audi and Beemer owners) "Sir is that your car? How do you like it?" Translation - why the hell is an oldtimer like you driving that?
    It's simple - you're never too old to enjoy a well balanced platform that brings a smile to your face each time you press that button. The active exhaust simply enhances the experience.

    Yes, had this exact conversation yesterday leaving autozone. 62 years young and enjoying life.

    10:40PM..... Spent the day installing some Steeda Suspension parts, cleaning and waxing the car and out for a long ride. I'm not old, just smarter, quieter and know how to enjoy life.

    Not quite a "senior citizen" by government standards (I turn 56 this year), but get funny looks on occasion and the mid-life crisis questions/accusations. Nope. No crisis. Just enjoy the car and enjoy improving it.
    Found this article. https://www.jdpower.com/cars/expert-reviews/powersteering-2016-ford-mustang-review I'm sure there is some good demographic information out there some where, but haven't run across it, yet.

    Age 62 here. Put many miles on motorcycles over the years and the convertible allows me to stay somewhat in touch with that. Plus it is just plain gorgeous.

    Me too, an old guy with a manual GT.
    Some reasons why are;
    1. I would have killed myself with this car when I was young :facepalm:
    2. I couldn't afford a car like this when I was young
    3. Which is why I'm an old guy with a hot car today ! :giggle:

    58 and I have the same car and the same color with the same wheels with a stick. :sunglasses:
    Yeah I would have killed myself if I had this car as a kid. I couldn't afford a car like this.. I had rusty old piece of crap Camaro's that needed to be wrenched every time you took one for a spin or you didn't make it back home..

    Thid is exactly why I just parked a 6 speed Mustang GT in my garage. Plus the kids are all grown up too. Now it's time for Dad to play.

    Although at 50 years old, I'm not technically a senior, I am getting up there. It makes me happy knowing people older than me are still enjoying their cars.

    I was getting in the car at the post office a few years ago, and a gentleman about my age (67) stopped me and asked "isn't that a young mans car?". To which I replied, what makes you think I'm not a young man?

    It sounds like quite a few old guys are buying this car :sunglasses:
    Driving it reminds me of the Harley but, with heated and cooled seats and more horsepower.
    There is a nostalgic connection with this car to our youth and our roots when American muscle cars were king.
    Oh wait ~ looks like they still are :like: 3.3.jpg

    I'll bet most of us do actually own them as well.
