Ok...I've been sitting here at work no less..lol..reading away and dreaming! I want to go order a Mustang so bad I can't stand it. I have it all pictured in my head...I really do...all the way down to the decal kits and all...lol..and I haven't even driven one yet. But I am 39 years old and a single mom of a 4 year old boy. It seems everyone else around me...including the parade to and from the schools...are either in a SUV or mini van. How am I going to look if I'm driving my son to school in a white Mustang GT??! I can't help it!! I have always been a lover of Mustangs and Fords...drive a '91 Taurus at the moment. The first time I saw the '05 I completely fell in love and I can't get it out of my head :shigrin So please help me...tell me honestly...will I look silly?? Thanks for any input.

I'd say you'd be the coolest mom in town.

This is a Mustang forum, though. No one is going to tell ya otherwise.

Go ahead and do it. When I drop my 2 girls off at school they love it because all the other kids freak out. They all say. "Is that your dad's car?" They are as proud of the car as I am.

Nothing wrong with non-conformity.

I'd say all the SUV/Minivans drivers would be jealous!

My mom drove me to school in a 73 Monte Carlo, and all the kids loved the car. Wayyyy better than the buick station wagons etc, everyone else was riding!!

The kids used to ask to get rides home . ..

Besides, who the heck cares how you look!!!!

This is AMERICA!!! Land of the FREE!! Home of the BRAVE!!!

If an American Mom can't face down a bunch of prissy-hissy's, where's this country going to?!!

I say it's your PATRIOTIC DUTY to say "To heck with you all!!! I live only once, and I won't stand for living in a MINIVAN!! I'm mad as heck, and I'm not gonna' take it ANYMORE!!!!"

:sterb:

Buy Buy Buy! People's brains turn to mush after buying a minivan, They are a house on wheels where all the kids in the back do nothing but distract the driver, if for nothing else, you will get out of having kids pile in the back so you can take then to soccer practice. Minivans also age people faster than any car on the road. Look and act years younger than the other moms who are drawn into the drab everyday life of a minvan. buy a GT! :thumbsup

You are an adult. Do what is in your heart. To heck with what people think. Oh, and if you sweet talk pcfrish's dealer, I bet they will sell you his car when it comes in. :scream:

LOL...thanks guys! It's good to hear that conformity isn't the norm...at least not yet!! I still have to drive one, but I've been afraid. The great part is I still have some time cause I have a family member who works for Ford so I don't have to jump on the promotions going on now. I do have a stupid question for all of you "patiently" waiting for your ordered cars. Did you have to put money down when you ordered, or how does that work?
Thanks again!!

Some dealers will use your plan id and not require a down payment. Mustang GT's are not included in the promotions that are advertised.

I should have phrased it "if you want one anytime soon, don't go through my dealer"

First of all hello,

Second, life is too short to waste time worrying about what someone else thinks about you or what car you drive. I personally love to be different. I simply do what I like ( within reason and the law ) and what other people might think is of course thier problem to deal with not mine.

However, lets assume that you want to defend your choice to them. Lets look at the avaliable facts:

1) The new Mustang is a safe car. Many SUV's have not recieved very good safety ratings. This is especially true of the high center of gravity truck based SUV which have had roll over problems. So, the other soccer moms cannot use that as a bashing point.

2) The Mustang ( even the GT ) gets significantly better gas milage than the big SUV's and is more enviromentaly responsible than the big SUV.

3) Dealing with kids of any age can be difficult. Kids do not typically like to open up and talk to adults. Kids ( especially teens ) love the new Mustang. It give you an opertunity to use the "cool" car to start conversations with your kids and their friend. Getting the communications started is halft the battle in keeping informed on what the kids are up to. I know I always spent more time with my friends parents who have som type of "cool" hobby or interest.

4) A lady driving a new Mustang just looks hot... So what do you care what the other women think. The men will love it....:thumbsup

Anyway, that is my thoughts about it.....

No, you would NOT look silly, you would look cool !
Finally someone breaking free from the suv-minivan syndrome !
Go for it, don't think about it twice, go for it !
