To suggest that someone is not a real mustang guy because they don't want their Mustang stripped down and bare bones is pretty illogical.
Sure, in the early 70's, when I bought my first "muscle car," most of us would have loved to enjoy the little comforts we have now. That's not the point I was intending to make.

It's not the little "creature comforts," or lack there of, which I was referring. It's the fact that it's whined about on an "enthusiast" forum. It's this type of thread that gets to me; along with the mentality. This one is almost as bad as the "help me pick a color" threads IMO.
