It's funny when you read the thread talking about what Ford needs to do to attract younger buyers and then see this thread. Someone made a rather astute observation: this new generation watched too much fast and the furious. Folks forgot the saying "there's no replacement for displacement".

Mustang apparently is seen as a chump sports car when in fact it is a good one. Coyote is a really great platform to build off of. As much as I am a bowtie man, Ford won me over with the Coyote (as well as other features). To be 100% honest, Camaro wasn't even in the running when I was shopping. It was down to a Mustang GT or Jaguar F type. Still very happy with my decision. 😊
I mean I’ve never thought of a mustang as a chump sports car. I mean a 50k car isn’t something every person can afford I feel. A chump sports car, to me anyway, is like some 30k economy sports car, ya know?

They just want to see you get on it.
I was a disappointment, I only floored it quickly up to 65-70 onto highway then cruise. People always got beside me in stang and would recommend and honk at me to do something



I disappointed

Haha I know, I haven't run across another VB mustang either. I did see a F150 in velocity blue once, it was such a good looking color viewed from a distance, definitely turned my head lol we chose well lol 😜



That's hilarious!:cwl:
Me neither 😁 I’ve seen VB Ranger in my area but no stangs.

Same. I'm not hotrodding on the streets or freeway. I have waaaaay to much to lose (besides my car) if something went poorly or I got pulled over.

In NYC, the highways at night turn into NASCAR tracks.
I have a 35 mile per way commute on the Belt Parkway. 50mph speed limit
Every night, I get a BMW or MB flying past around 80 mph and weaving through traffic.
Inevitably, it gets followed by 5 or 6 shitbox fartcans trying to "race".
I witnessed 4 collisions in the last year.
My favorite was a Civic that had his entire rear clip sheared off as he cut in front of an Escalade.

I refuse to engage.

I must be in the minority here because no one is a douche when I'm in the Mustang. Most people just want to check it out.

I've given the beans to a few fast cars and they pull up all grins. Sometimes I think it's me.

I'd love to race a Viper GTS. :)

I too like to give other drivers of fast cars cans of beans. Sharing is caring 🤘

An Old Man with a Hat in a cool car is the worst...
I dont have a hat. I have a VMP 2.3 on this thing, though. Dont mess with the Old Man Without a Hat. My dad used to gripe about old men with hats driving too slow 60 years ago. Some things never change.

For me, it's mostly the truck / SUV crowd who tends to be aggressive. Oh and those V6 Chargers! It's the same when I drive my STI. I tend to drive with the flow of traffic, once in a while a little spirited accelaration. Both my cars have relatively quiet exhausts, and I don't go around instigating.

Either these people just want to see how quickly you can accelarate and they know they don't have a chance. Alternatively, they may just be ignorant and think their car is faster.
