I haven't had a "fun" car in 30 years due to family & company car requirements.
My 2014 basic 6cyl manual is a totally fun "toy".
I use the Mustang for daily cummute & weekend erands.
The car gets an amazing 25.5MPG & the attention the Mustang gets at the gas station is surprising.
The 6 speed manual is more fun the longer you own the car.
