Were you all as excited about the 2009 Ford Mustang badge as we were? Or what about the 2010 Ford Mustang headlight? Surely, the Mustang and all its many derivatives (Shelby GT-H, Saleen Mustang, GT500KR, Electric Cobra, et cetera) are important vehicles as Ford has now sold more than nine million of them, though sales have dropped recently.
The question is, with the upcoming Dodge Challenger and Chevy Camaro, is the Mustang relevant or exciting? Is it a great American sports car? Or is it just a heavy American car? Are those worshiping in the Mustang Church of America pursuing a false idol? Do we care anymore? Is the WRX the new Mustang or is the new Mustang also the old Mustang?
