So why is the Ford Mustang so enduring in American life? Is it the sheer beauty of the car? Performance? Or is it the democratic appeal, the fact that a Mustang owner can work at a steel mill, a university, a bank, or anywhere in between? The Mustang is one of those rare mass assembly products that both evoke status and blur class lines. It can be -- if accessorized and options -- nearly as fast as a Porsche or Ferrari -- or it can be rather tame, although tameness is increasing difficult to achieve. If you stretch it, you could almost argue it is a family car, but that family must have short legs. It makes a person look better, although if you dig deep enough that person is really quite unimportant, as we all are.
So the new 7th generation Mustang is coming soon at a Ford dealer near you!
