I most decidedly do not have a demographic profile that matches that of the Mustang buyer, so I was surprised to get in this GT and find that I kind of like it. Sure, the pay-attention-to-me color isn't exactly a turn-on, but I can see how it might be embraced by Mustang devotees. Unless you're a real Mustang fanatic, you might not notice the exterior changes, but once inside, you can see that the dashboard design has been modernized and the materials are a step up. The GT, with its live rear axle, doesn't handle the pockmarked roads of Michigan as well as I might like, but the engine supplies a satisfying amount of power and sings a nice song. All in all, this is a car that isn't for me, but I can see how it appeals to diehard pony car fans.
