Eh,......much ado nothing really.
His article doesn't exactly scratch new ground any-more-so than the Mustang he condemns for not making great strides into a new direction either.
Yeah.....we get it........pony cars like Mustang and Camaro both are in something of a "BOX" that doesn't allow for the far reaching dramatic changes he wants to see.
What he's apparently missing is simple enough to point to.
These cars are designed around a certain set of ideas that are some-what "fixed" and not open to consideration for change. Making some of the changes he suggests would mean a Pony car is no longer a Pony Car.
Worse still? Why ruin it? Why alienate the buyer that wants it and keeps coming back.
If it's a DIFFERENT car with vastly different ideas that a buyer wants........it's out there.....Ford may already be building it under another name-plate or it may be yet to come under an entirely NEW name-plate.
His article suggests to me that while he's some-what AWARE of the history concerning the pony car market......he's never actually owned a Mustang, Camaro or other brand of pony car.......it's pretty clear that he really just doesn't get it at all.
