2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Crossing Jordan

This is my friend's son Jordan, who is 6 and is pictured about to head out to his baseball game. I visited his parents a few weeks ago and asked him to check out our long-term 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0.

He said it was Nice and sounded Cool. What he didn't mention was that the Mustang GT's ride is choppy over bumpy freeway sections. And that you can get the rear end to step out a bit going around corners even without defeating the traction control.

It's too bad he probably won't get a chance to buy a new V8 Mustang when he's older. With the New World Order, I don't see how the affordable V8 muscle car can survive. It's the end of the road after this gen of the Mustang, Challenger, and Camaro.

Is there a hybrid I4 Mustang in Jordan's future? Perhaps. But I'll bet he won't find that Cool.
