Mustang GTs are surprisingly not a bad daily driver….that is of course as long as you put blinders on while filling up the gas

I always thought that the mustang and Camaro wee classified as pony cars or muscle cars.

AC cobra and corvette as sports cars.
i used to park cars at a fancy resort when i was a kid drove one of everything there ,this is the most impractical fun you can legally have.

Wow! So many great rides. My first car was a 72 LTD. A pea green rusty tank. Car was 10 years old when I bought it but looked 30. Best 100 bucks I ever spent, tho.

I'm so glad I stumbled into this thread.
I have a soft spot in my soul for American sports/pony cars.
Currently have a 94 SVT Cobra convertible (bought for my daughter and going to repaint it Viper Blue) with several mods.
Have owned:
72 Javelin 304 4sp.
72 Camaro R/S 396 4sp
76 Camaro LT 350/Auto
76 Trans Am 455 4sp
76 Formula Firebird 350/Auto
91 Mustang GT
78 Dodge D 100 2wd w/440/auto, lowered. (kind of muscle-like, too fast for its own good)
78 C10 383 Stroker/ 4sp (515 hp, also too fast for its own good)
63 Galaxie 428/ 3sp
67 Comet 289/4sp.

No. Not a sports car. Bought in '06, sold in '17. This picture is the day I got to drive Kevin Harvick around the track for driver's introduction. Anyone know which track?

That much more cramped than a C7 or C6? Figured they would be about the same on the inside. I had a 2020 on order, but had to cancel it in Feb of 2020 as I was out of work on disability for cancer. Did not think it was wise to spend 90K not knowing when or if I would go back to work. Am thinking about ordering a 2022 now. I'll never go back to work but am on disability.
Take this as my own personal experience of course.

Once you’re in it it’s roomy as far as leg space but it’s very tight fitting on the sides. Especially on the passenger side there’s basically nothing for you but the wall of center console that divides driver and passenger and the door on the other side of you. Driving it takes a huge getting used to. I have not driven the second generation 2 but I have driven a first gen Ford GT and I thought that took getting adjusted with for visibility but the C8 takes the cake on feeling like being in a tank. A lot of body movement is needed, for me, to get full fidelity of what’s around me when going through tight spaces or changing lanes.

Again these are my observations which are still early. I haven’t had the time yet to break it in fully yet (500 miles) so I’m sure with time I’ll adapt and gain some comfort with it. The plan is to put almost a full break in cycle worth of driving on it in the next month during a vacation trip so that should definitely help feel it out

2017 Grand Sport. Always loved the Red White and Blue Scheme. Purist so I searched long and hard for a 7 speed manual. Modern day CLUB or Theft deterrent.
