Once they had the car they realized they missed this or that from car x or y. That a or b was a problem, and they were not happy with c and d (using random variables here). These people are not previous Mustang customers.

So yes, you are right, there are very few Mustang guys on here. Most of the people on here are bandwagoners who have jumped on the Mustang wagon because Ford was finally able to market a product which would appeal to prospective buyers.

Just wait till the 2015 comes out (which is guaranteed to look like a half asian / half european conjunction) as it will attract even more import guys. Thats the idea though, get as many people to switch over and to buy Ford. As time goes on there will be less and less true "Mustang guys". Mark my words. Its no longer about appealing to previous clients, its about attracting new ones.
I completely agree with you. Nonetheless, it's still sad IMO. However, this forum has taken it to a whole new level.
