The Camaro and Challenger look great - the new Mustang, not so much. Right now I have a 2013 v6. Ive also had a 2011 Challenger and a 2010 Camaro.

The apologists can dress it up anyway they like - but the Camaro and Challenger stand out, hopefully they don't puss out like Ford did and go the corporate front end route.

What I do love about the new Mustang is the interior on the upper trims. That might be the nicest interior out right now. (GM take note)

Now that Chrysler finally got rid of the abomination that was the 08-14 Challenger interiors, I think they'll start selling a few more Challengers. Especially the way the new Fusion coupe is looking.
Actually, those of us that buy the "performance models" of the "Pony" cars thank you for wanting a good looking car that is well made. If Ford, Chevy and Dodge didn't sell three times as many of the "normal performance - high option" models of the Pony cars, as they do "high performance cars", no one could afford to build or buy the "high performance" models. I think the new Mustang could be very popular in London, Tokyo and Singapore because there are so few "classic Mustangs" in those areas that people just judge the new car on "contemporary looks," rather then on a "historic icon" basis. Unfortunately Europe and Japan are in, or close to, recession - which is very bad for FORD. When judged against all the other "modern look" cars, the new Mustang is "OK." Not too much different then 10 other new cars in looks. However, the "price" is getting pretty high when compared to that same group of "modern cars." Most people don't want a "stripped down" car. They want the great stereo and the modern safety features. That really drives up the price of the new Mustang - over $44K for the Ecoboost convertible. So thanks for being in the car market with your preferences! You make it possible for the rest of us to get the kind of cars we are looking for
