With all the doom and gloom in the car industry these days, somebody really should step up and force manufacturers to make all cars sound as good as the 2010 Mustang GT! Not only is that sound good for the driver’s soul, the volume causes necks to snap all over town which must be good for the chiropractic trade.
I have to admit that I didn’t keep too close an eye on the 2010 Mustang redesign. I absolutely fell in love with the previous generation Bullitt and couldn’t see how they could possibly improve on it. Even worse, what if they inadvertently created another Mustang II? When I finally saw the car in the flesh, I was pleased to see that the overhaul was fairly subtle and retained the overall feel of the previous car, complete with the nostalgic profile. The big, bulging hood looks like an adaptation of the previous GT500 hood although a tad softer in execution. The only detail that doesn’t do it for me is the tail lights and rear panel. One friend said it looked like something from Japan in the early 80′s. I’m not sure what exactly he was comparing it to, but I think I get the idea. Overall, the car is undeniably a Ford Mustang and that brand identity is oh so important these days.
