Default Has Ford lost there minds?

Look, I love Mustangs but for goodness sake Ford has lost there f'ing minds.

I have be browsing the new mustangs at dealers (maybe its my area..bit upscale) and I am flabbergasted at the stickers on these things...who the hell is going to drop $40k + on a mustang? I mean no disrespect but come on! Seriously...in the mist of a recession at that, but even still...I would never even though I have the means.

I really think they have forgotten there target market.

What's funny in the end, they got me by the ***** cause I still want
one.

I paid $40k for mine. Well, $38k. Sticker was $42.7k.

It's worth every penny.

Ten years ago you couldn't get 400hp for less than $75k, and that's before you factor inflation.

March Ford Mustang sales highest in nearly two years

I guess they're doing something right.

I can't wait to see what Ford does for 2015 anniversary. I hope the cars get lighter, stay as fast, have automatic adjustment for suspension performance modes and real launch and traction control settings. Maybe the GT500 will actually come with 305 width tires in rear and 275 up front, and have IRS and magnetic ride control technology stolen from the Russians(GM). Erik
