RIP

In Memoriam: Ford Mustang, 1964-2014

It is with great sadness that I must announce the end of not only a friend of mine, but an era. For years, she set the standard for what an American muscle car should be:  intimidating, powerful, and, above all else, mean.

She had been the apple of my eye since childhood, and was my main goal throughout my teenage years.

But now she no longer exists. She is lost to us, stranded in the echelons of cliched curvature and design.

A new car emerges from her absence that dares to take on the title of “Mustang”, yet we, lovers of Mustangs all over, know exactly what has replaced her: the Ford Fusion coupe (seen below).

As paining as the loss of our once glorious Mustang is, her memory shall indeed still live in the hearts and minds of owners and lovers everywhere. So today, I leave with you all a visual reminder of her days, and hope with you all that one day, Ford will bring the Mustang back to it’s former, unique glory.

Farewell, my once loyal friend… I knew thee well.
