Default Ugh, the downside of owning a Mustang is the idiots who also own one

The Mustang is the first car I've owned that makes me say "eh..." to my dream car, the Corvette. Finally I found a car that actually makes me feel torn between with the 'vette. Never thought the day would happen.

But boy oh boy, if theres one thing that makes me want a 'vette, its the absolute idiots who drive mustangs like crazed immature animals.

Today I went up the local mountain with my gf. NIce time, 45 minute drive up to 9000 ft, escaping the Tucson heat and humidity to a place that feels like November.

Well, on the way down I see an absolutely beautiful S197 coming up behind me. Felt great because all I saw at the top was a lame Miata club. Anyways, he comes FLYING up onto my ***. Keep in mind I drive fast on the mountain, but safely, never truly pushing it. My top speed is usually 60mph. I dont even want to imagine how fast he must've been going!

Finally we reach the less friendly part of the drive where the road is narrow, the guardrails are right off the side of your car and theres no vehicle pull-offs. He passes me around a tight turn! No regard for any car that might pop out from around the corner. I watch him fly away from me and hes screaming around turns and passing several more cars on this narrow 1-way each way road, passing them around blind corners. On this mountain its constant blind corners.

I was stunned and ashamed. I then had to pull up on the tails of these cars he just passed, knowing they were thinking "Here comes another idiot mustang driver". Ugh. Eventually all of us reached a straightaway and I peered ahead and he was no where to be seen. He must've passed everyone and put all of their lives in danger.

This road has signs posted everywhere saying "No Passing" and its obvious why! I was so mad, and embarrassed. What an idiot. Its ok to endanger your own life, but if something happened to him he would've taken another car with him.

Ok I'm done now.

Corvette owners endanger peoples lives every day too. Most of them are so old they could die behind the wheel! LOL!

I here what you're saying though, some people are just born reckless. He could have just as easily been driving a honda though. Someone in a pickup truck just ahead of mepassed a car on a blind hill. Luckily no one was coming, but it could have ended badly.

I know there are tools driving corvettes, i saw one at the track.

I like my Mustang a lot too but I think what you are dealing with is a car that doesn’t have much financial value. Because they have low value, anyone can own one and feel free to beat the heck out of them and sick a bunch of crap on them. If the Mustang cost 80k it would be a different story.

It seems like every time I see a story on the news about a street racing crash/death it involves at least one Mustang. Makes me sick. It must be what someone else said about the cheap price; anyone can afford at least a used one.

I know what you mean. It is embarassing when some idiot drives like that in a stang. I'm all for spirited driving, but some of these products of incest just don't have any common sense.
