I'd wanted a Mustang since I was a kid ever since my grandma and sister owned one. I understand that a majority of Mustang drivers are women, and it's considered a 'girls' car, but who cares? It was what I wanted.
I think it's a great first car for someone who wants a V8, but doesn't want to worry about it getting away from them or crashing.
It sounds mean, but it wouldn't take much to pass one on the road. I live in a prominent San Francisco gay neighborhood, and get compliments all the time about the styling and appearance. Just a couple of revs, and the next thing I know, I'm rolling 3 deep to the local club.
The handling isn't the best for a sports car, but it can get out of its own way just fine.
The interior fit and finish has surprisingly held up after over a decade. As far as reliability goes, I haven't had any problems yet.
All in all, whether you're gay or straight, male or female, if you want a Mustang just get one. Who cares what others think? At the end of the day, all that matters is what you want. And I'd recommend this car to anyone!
