Age has nothing to do with anything, do what makes you happy. Only one go around, no regrets.

You're only to old if it's to fast or to loud for you. As long as you want it, good enough. For what it's worth, I'm 40. I got my first one when I was mid 20's (67 coupe I restored), and my second one (01 GT) when I was 33, which I modded and rodded. As soon as I can afford a coyote, I will be shredding the tires and embarassing camaros every chance I get, not matter what my age!

2001 Gt (gone but not forgotten, always loved!)

I'll be 70 in 3 months, I'm waiting for my '11 GT vert. I'm trading my C6 Vette vert because it got too hard on my knees getting in and out. Traded my '03 GT vert for the Vette, and am anxious to be back in a Mustang again. Had hot cars all my life, my first car would probably have been a Mustang, but they were still 9 years away at that time.

Do what you feel like, age is irrelevent.

Mustang Great for any age

I bought my first Mustang when I was 19. It was a 1966 Coupe with a 289 automatic, it was roughly 11 years old at the time. I have liked Mustangs ever since. Have owned 8 Mustangs total since and including my first. Currently enjoying the best one yet, my new 2011 GT automatic.

I'm 24 and have been wanting a Mustang since I was 7.

Finally got one with the new 5.0.

I'll be holding on to this car for a long time.

62 here. I went for the base coupe with a 6 speed manual... it was a steal. I'm pleased and she's likely to be a bit faster than people think. 3:73s or 4:10s and tires will help her I suspect. :smoke: Also building a 450 hp 64 Fairlane Sport Coupe so I couldn't really justify a 5.0. Life isn't a dress rehearsal .. get it if you want it.

2011 3.7 Base - Getrag 6
FRPP 3.73s - FRPP KR springs - Shelby 500 KR rear shocks - FRPP 18" Euro Silver Bullets - 255/45ZR18 Giti Drift 1 - Custom 91 Octane Tune

Age has nothign to do with any car ... I'm 36 and looking into building a 33' Ford ... way out of my age bracket but I love the car ... I say if you want it then buy it. Hell my mother is 63 and she just bought a 1969 Corvette .. original 454, 4 spd ... She wanted it she bought it ... BUT WHAT YOU WANT AND DON'T GIVE A DAMN WHAT OTHERS SAY !!!

I'm 52, I have just ordered a grabber blue GT premium, 6 speed, with Brenbo package.

My first Mustang was a 69 Mach 1 with a 390, that I purchased at 18 (yeah I wish I had that one back, I think I sold it for $2k)

My second was an 83 GT, which was soon modified and running in the 13s.

I'm just as excited about my new GT as I was with my first.
