Am I too old for a Mustang?
 
Yes, I know, age is only ion the mind, but on the other hand, numbers do not lie. I am 46 and NOT going through a mid-life crisis (LOL!), but just want to enjoy my life. With that being said, the one concern I had when narrowing my choices down in cars was my age. I wanted something that would be right for me. 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?

Top Down,

One of the great things about the Mustang was when it was first produced, it had broad appeal for all ages. I don't look at it any differently. My generation just happened to yearn for a classic looking car, and this model happens to be very close...... If you look at my MCA club, we have all ages for all models. So if you love the car, don't care what anyone else thinks, and Drive One.

I'm 42 and all I bought one.

All I can say is I'm glad Mr.Shelby didn't have your fears 30 years ago

:)

The poll is pretty meaningless. Age of what? visitors to the site?

A better poll would be "Age of current Mustang owners"

FWIW... I'm 47 and seriously considering a GT.

Sinist3r 1 06-08-2010 09:51 AM

I don't think so, but I did find the older I got the more I appreciated the older mustangs. I guess I can only see the younger crowed driving the newer stangs. my.02

Ill be 44 and love the '11 Mustang. Muscle car meets pure refinement. This is a classy car and should be driven by everyone. Go over to TMS most are 40+ over at that forum.

As long as you can get in and out comfortably, you are not too old.

lug 06-08-2010 09:55 AM

My last 'Stang was an 89 and I'm seriously considering an 11 GT. It's simply too good a car to pass up. I turn 52 in a couple of weeks. A lot of people I know choose mustangs for life!

TD, I'll be 60 next b'day and look what I ordered! Age is a state of mind and my wife and love to travel, so the Mustang was perfect for us. Make yourself happy!

EddieZ 06-08-2010 10:08 AM

Meeee Toooo, I'll be 61 next month and am a few days away from ordering a GT Premium, manual, 3.73, Brembo, etc. Wooo Hooo! Oh and the Missus of 35 years is excited and ready to make some road trips with me...

GO FOR IT!!!

I'm only 19 but, I see a Mustang in my possession until I get old and they won't let my drive anymore. :hihi:

BobbyRay 06-08-2010 10:12 AM

The Mustang crowd around here are all ages. I see mostly the older crowd cruising in their 2005+ verts with their baseball caps and trophy wives. The younger crowd mostly drive New Edges and older.

Gentlemen

I have a 2011 base GT with3.55 and Brembo brake package on order since April 19. I am 63 years old. My first performance car was a 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner with a 425hp 426 Hemi that I bought when I returned from Viet Nam. That was my first car. My last three cars have been a 2003 Mitsubishi Evo 8, a 2006 Pontiac GTO, and a 2008 Chevy Cobalt SS Turbo.

You are only old if you think you are.

Copper Man:)

Thanks all. Maybe it is my fears, but it's good to see all the responses...from ALL age groups!

Thanks again!
