Boy, I would like to think I'm not too old, dealer had no problem selling us one. Wife is 55, I am 54 and we have been married for 35 years. Like I said in another post, if we don't like it, we'll sell it. My wife has always wanted a mustang and now she will have one. "You will never spend you last 20 dollars, it is impossible".

If you think you are old at 46, maybe you should think about a Camyre or something similar..............

I am 61 and my 2011 GT replaced my 05 GT...........

Age can be a state of mind- get the Mustang and move on
into the rest of your life....IT WILL BE FUN !!!!

I LOVE the Mustang look and was very excited about getting one...again, until I saw the numbers, and also thought about the several times I saw newer Mustangs, the drivers were twenty somethings, or early thirties for most part.

So my question is, on average, is the Mustang a "younger" persons car?

If you think you are too old then you probably are. It isn't about your actual age, it is how you think about your age.

I am 40 and can't wait for my new stang to arrive. I don't care what others think, I never notice the age of other drivers in other cars. Windows down, stereo up and nothing else matters. If you find my post insulting, then it means you still have some fight in you which means you may not be too old for a mustang . . .

Another vote from an excited 46 year old waiting for his new Mustang! Maybe it has to do with the fact that us 46-ers were born the same year the Mustang debuted....

I turn 50 in a few weeks and refuse to buy a foreign name plate. I know, if we don't buy foreign products, how are those countries suppose to be able to lend us more money? I was born an American, fought for America and I lost 2 uncles to the Japanese. My first car was a 1964 1/2 Mustang. I am an American (I'm even 1/4 Cherokee) and the Mustang is American as apple pie. You are NEVER too old!

Good thinking!!!! I for one could never go through a mid-life crisis because I never grew up to begin with. I've been wearing white Converse (Chuck Taylors) with black shoe strings for nearly 40 years. Some things never change, and if I find myself wearing black socks with shorts, I'll sell my cars and hang it up!

Well, let's ratchet up the age count a little more. I'll be 69 this month, and just ordered a new GT. Hopefully I'll get it before I'm 70!

I am 70 and will order one in the near future. Can't decide between V6 or 5.0, stick or automatic. Of the 45 vehicles I have owned, 23 have been stick shift, but don't know if I want to have to shift all the time, even though I like to do a little autocross from time to time. At my age, one has to beware of the "too much fun" threshold.

Have owned Porsche, BMW, M/B. My '04 Mach 1 was more fun than any of those. Even had a 2000 Lincoln with manual trans (believe it or not) which was great fun to drive. Could stand up to any of the foregoing through the twisties. Traded it on the BMW. Big mistake.

I turned 47 yesterday and loving my 2011. Wouldn't trade it for anything. I had a '90 LX new and was looking through a magazine for parts at that time in my late 20's. A gentleman about 50 asked me if I thought he was too old because he really wanted one. I told him to get one.

I now feel like that guy some 20 years ago, but that is the great thing about a mustang. I believe it keeps you young no matter your age.

Is Carroll Shelby too old to Drive a Mustang. I don't think so!

I don't think I'm "old", but in regards to the "Mustang" was the context I was referring to. Just like I can't go into some of these clothing stores that my tenage son goes into because the "styles" would not be appropriate for my age.

But in regards to the mustang, my eyes are wide open!

You go dude, there is nothing more refreshing than some teaching some idiot (they always start it) in a G37 or TL TypeS (first 2 that come to mind) a leason in American muscle. And that's with my 4.6, the 5.0 is in a whole different class and loaded still costs less.

Repeat several times daily "I am an American and therefore I will act like an American"
