It's just feels sad when you pass by the very same car ur driving without giving the thumb up, just my view. I guess I'm a little happier than I should be for driving this '05

Here in PA I get responses from a thumbs up or a wave around 80% of the time with another Mustang coming head on. If I'm next to some one and if they don't beat me to it I almost always get a response especially if it's an S197. Sometimes, I even miss a head on greeting if I'm not paying attention.

If I tried to give a thumps up or a nod to every mustang I saw around here I'd drive myself nuts. Here is the thing.....Most people that drive a mustang, it's just a car that looks cool, they probably aren't mustang freaks like most of us. It seems like I only get a wave or thumbs up from other modded stangs, cause they are the ones that care. I do however get lots of attitude from 05+ stangs and I'm not sure why....maybe it's the "I have the new style" attitude....who knows

I'm concerned about the relationship between two mustang drivers, they should always give the thumb up when they meet on the road, even a small head hode would do, sort of saying: "what's crackin yo!", but can't find that nowadays.
I'm with you HornyGT. Everytime I see another S197 I have a strong urge to smile and give them a thumbs up, but I've noticed not all S197 drivers feel the same. A lot look like they just want to maintain their "cool" I-don't-care demeanor.

A few months ago, before I got my new car, I was driving the wife's Contour SVT to get new rotors for the old 93 GT. I was caught at a light next to a beatiful black S197 GT. The guy had his window down so I rolled mine down and shouted "Beautiful car! I want one baaaaad!" He smiled and replied "You gotta get one of these."

But to make you feel better - a week after I got the new stang I was gassing up at Quiktrip. I ran inside to get a snack, and as I was leaving a guy stopped me and asked if that was my new GT out there. He wanted to know how I liked it because he was thinking about getting one. There I was going on about what a great car it was and telling him how it makes 300hp on 87 octane, and handles great and stuff. Ahhhhh, it's some kind of sickness. Mustang Madness! I'm obsessed with this car.

93 GT hatchback, 5 speed, 3.08 gear, mechanical clutch. Mods: K&N filter, air silencer removed

07 GT premium coupe, stick, IUP, comfort group, 3.55 gear, spoiler delete

Great, now I won't be able to sleep tonight.

Let's face it, not everybody "Joins the Club". Those in the know will give a wave, others are mearly driving "transportation". Here in the Boonies, everybody waves. Doesn't matter if you're in a Lambo or on horseback. Heck, they'll wave if you're on a bike which is kinda hard to wave back from. That's just the South.
I've had people wave who are driving Mustangs, and I surely wave back. But, why should I care if they won't notice me? I've spent my whole life not giving a s--t. Why start now?

OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.

Yeah, second babies get PLENTY of looks when I'm drivin' around. Don't read too much into the unresponsiveness either. I give a lot of other S197s but not all of 'em look up. What do I see on their faces? Worry, tiredness, deep thought, all kindsa stuff. Yeah, I think they should be happier too, but it's life, and it sometimes blows...

Keep doin' what you're doin'...spread that Pony joy. Sing it loud: I'd like to buy the world a Stang, and keep 'em company...

Most older mustang owners from generations previous, especially the old 5.0's that I've seen, all want to race when they see my car. I dont know what it is, but I dont feel like being "that guy"... you know, the irresponsible 21 year old who has a hot car. Granted, girls do tend to give some pretty nice looks my way, but that really wasnt the point of buying and modding it. The fact is, if you want to join an elite club where everybody smiles and waves, buy a Vette or Viper. The fact is, our cars are made affordable so that others can enjoy them... Not everybody is in love with their car (ME!)

Duh... I meant to say that . I was empasizing the idea that the average person doesn't know the difference in mustang styles (v6, GT, cobra.. yea you get me). Hell, when I was 16 and first looking for a car my dad tried to buy me a fox and I didn't want it because I thought it looked like a "box" (I didn't even know it was a MUSTANG!). Only if I would of known what I know now... :hihi: Hell , I would have that 90 GT running low 13s by now...

Like the rest of you I get a lot of looks in my car and I try to wave, smile or in some way acknowledge the other owners a much as possible. Try to relay or suggest the whole Mustang brotherhood thing even if it subliminal.

I believe what makes the Mustang and the brotherhood possible is the unlimited opportunity to "individualize" our cars. While many of us sport some of the same performance mods, each car is different with a special paint or wheels, hood even tires. Too me thats cool and even if I looked like a hair on somebody's ass I still look and feel cool in my car.
