It's a great looking car, but when it comes to model names I think the US reigns supreme.

Just off the top of my head:
  • Javelin
  • Mustang
  • Bronco
  • Zephyr
  • Demon
  • Hellcat
  • Roadrunner
  • Charger
  • Challenger
  • Roadmaster
  • Corvette
  • Stingray
  • Magnum
  • Viper
  • Cobra
  • Venom
  • Talon
  • Marauder
  • Hornet
  • Prowler
  • Cutlass
  • Firebird
  • Lightning
  • Typhoon

So, Trabis are kinda still dangerously cheap? I get that they're raising in price but €2K for a runner seems...relevant to my interests. My terrible, bad interests.

Bow to your Master!


I agree, the name is not great, but I still miss my Master.

But it is way better than Crown Victoria... Why, just why?

My dad bought a Mustang, and I'm insured to use it. It's absolutely ace. There's a lot to be said for a big V8 when you haven't experienced one before. I want one.

I think it fits for the car and a certain time.

Hell yeah. Not so much in the 80s and 90s, but it was perfect in the 30s-50s

One of us! One of us! I have had so many discussions/arguments with people over this. "But I can make more power with <insert non V8 turbo>" "But it's not the power it's the way it feels and sounds" "But I can still pass you!!" "I don't care...."

That’s awesome! I for sure thought that the mustang would lose its popularity a year after everybody got one but, it seems to still be selling very well.
