Well, what would you expect them to drive around in; a Bonnie?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but what would attract more people to the movie theaters:

Actually, I'd pick the Bonneville. I love those quirky chases where they use cars not normally thought of as chase cars. Like in the 007 flick For Your Eyes Only, they used a Citroen 2CV as a chase car, and to this day, it'* still one of my favorite chase scenes. Then again, Bullitt IS my favorite

Mustangs throughout the 80s and 90s were predominantly women'* cars. (Not that there'* anything wrong with that.) -The *only* people I knew who drove them were women. The newer ones look a lot more muscular. Also, they make a lot of "wannabe" mustangs with small engines, which people buy to look cool driving a mustang, but they have nothing near the power of the more expensive V8 mustangs. The sheer number of posers with wannabe mustangs that think their car is hot stuff when it'* not makes me really REALLY dislike them, much like ricer cars with a big wing on the back of a Civic. I mean, either get a real sportscar or get over yourself.

The mustang GTs with the big engines are one of the more affordable cars that have lots of power, so I can understand people buying those. But even then, the people I run into that have those are mostly @$$holes. Maybe it'* just the ones I run into.

I don't know...my dad has an '06 GT and I would consider that a muscle car. What would classify between a "pony car" and a "muscle car" anyway?

A "muscle" car is a full size power laden car. A "pony"car is a midsize or compact version. The term "pony" comes from Mustang being the first small power car so............
I am so upset about quality of all 3 Makers right know I will just add a obligatory Fords Suck. DJ,...... The "Flying" Bonnie made me laff hard. Wonder if They had such animals in Hazzard County!. John Collier.... go to your room and take the rest of the traitors with ya.

I don't understand why people call Mustang'* girly cars. I agree about the V6'*, but if you don't like them, don't buy one. New Mustangs (GT'*) are awesome cars...they look great, sound great, haul ***, they're REALLY comfortable, and the quality is excellent...all for about 30 grand. What'* not to like?
