Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - MOTOR GUIDE -

THE Ford Mus­tang is a con­trary car: beloved of Baby Boomers yearn­ing for a re-run of a mis­spent youth; or 14-year-old school­boys fu­elled by rag­ing hor­mones wish­ing they could own one.

Wrong. Hav­ing spent time with a new ‘Pony 34’ (its rego num­ber), most in­ter­est­ing was the ap­peal of the red GT Fast­back shown by young adult fe­males, snap­ping self­ies and sit­ting be­hind the wheel, per­haps dream­ing of cruis­ing Rodeo Drive.

Maybe I did not get it, but Ford cer­tainly did. Here’s what one Blue Oval bloke thinks: “The vis­ceral look, sound and per­for­mance of Mus­tang res­onates with peo­ple, even if they’ve never driven one. It is more than just a car – it is the heart and soul of Ford.” DEREK OG­DEN
