The Ford Mustang is the definitive muscle car it’s been around since 1964 and is still going strong. I have to say that I am a massive fan of the Mustang. I admit the Stang did go astray during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. But its now since 2005 it has been back at its best.
Here it is, genesis the original Mustang. This car was the big one. The car that coined the phrase “out of the door and around the block”. This referred to the queues just to buy a new Mustang. The car as standard would be pretty basic so you really had to go for the car with a lot of optional extras. Then you would have something really special.
Now you can’t blame the Mustang 2 for hating its father a little. The MK1 Mustang was such a massive success that everybody thought the second Stang would be even better. But alas no it was bigger softer and just generally uglier. There were special edition mustangs such as the Boss 302 but this was based on the original car not the second generation. And more notably the Mustang Mach 1 featured in the film Gone in 60 seconds, but this car was still bigger and uglier than the original car.
Now we have the car that badly damaged the mustang name. The Mustang 3. This was when Ford basically used the Mustang Badge just to sell a car no matter how bad it was. This car ran straight through the 80’s up until 1993 when ford finally killed it. (Thank God) This car was worse than the 70’s version.
This was a turning point for the Mustang Ford realised they couldn’t put out the shit box they had in the 80’s. This car was better than the 70’s and 80’s Stang’s but it was by no means as good as the original. This car ran right through until 2004 with special editions such as the GT and the SVT Cobra which was built by Fords race team.
The Mustang has Returned to it’s best. This car was the best looking and fastest since the original Mustang. This car was brilliant, powered by a 4.6 litre V8 with a 0-60 time of 7.3 seconds faster than most of its rivals in its price bracket this car was a real return to greatness for the Mustang.
Little is known about the new Mustang and many people don’t even know of its existence since it was revealed during the Geneva Motors how when no body was paying any attention.
