A car to make dad smile

From Consumer Reports' list of 10 cars to make dad smile:

"Ford Mustang GT
With iconic looks and powerful engines, the Mustang speaks to car lovers of all ages, especially those who fondly recall raucous pony cars from their youth. In the twilight of the current generation, the Mustang is a steal, with notable incentives piled on that long hood for both coupes and convertibles, making room for the imminent redesign. The mild-mannered V6 is a prudent choice with modest insurance premiums and downright decent highway fuel economy, but it is the GT with its 420-hp, 5.0-liter V8 that is the real treat. Despite its old-school, solid-axle rear suspension, the Mustang feels agile and athletic, and it maintains an even keel winding through twisty turns. The GT made an impressive showing in our track handling trials, where it remained controllable, balanced, and forgiving at and beyond its high limits."

It sure makes **me** smile.

They have always made me smile. From '65-73 and '05-'15, they are my car of choice.

WOW! Accolades from that Commie Rag Consumer Reports! Are you sure they know Ford makes the Mustang? They probably think it's made by Toyota!
