Very happy that I own this car.

Putting the top down at 10 pm, driving home in the dark, the highway in front of me, the moon above me, is an excellent way to end the day.

When Motor Trend first debuted the S197 in 2004, my heart skipped a beat! I knew I had to have one! Growing up in the '60s, I loved the 1969 Boss Mustang but at the time, I was too young to drive one.
I'm so happy Ford reinvented the Legend! I only have 8K miles on mine!

I always LIKED Stangs but I fell in love with the S197 in '05 SOLELY for the retro look to the '66 (or thereabout). I don't have an '06 AND '07 sitting side-by-side in the garage for nutin'...

I remember really liking the exterior and interior, but when I saw the Highland Green in the showroom I knew it had to be mine.

Other cars are nice but, I agree with you. Trading an S197 for another style or brand car would a major "I wish I didn't trade that Mustang" stomping in the back of my head and would probably lose sleep over it. The only thing I want to trade my Mustang in for is another Mustang. I don't want to trade it in. I'd like to have another one. A white 2011 V6 with the electronics package & glass roof would do it for me.

yep, seems like they designed the car and forgot about the cupholders and put them in at the last minute. Makes it interesting driving to work with a cup of coffee....

Had mine for a few years now. Bought used w/4500 on it. Have 18 on it now. No big complaints. Overall I'm happy with it.

Only thing I regret is choosing a black car. Wish I had got silver, white, or gray instead.
