Wife got a Pony!

Well, a pony made in Michigan by Ford!

Will take some pics tomorrow when the sun is out but here's a "parting shot" of the cool/cheesy "pony projection lamps" where it projects the pony logo next to the car when parked.



Traded in her aging Taurus on a 2014 White Mustang V6 Premium Convertible! 30mpg AND 305 horsepower! The V6 has a bad rap but they got it right this time I think; it's an excellent option for a daily driver.

That's cool. Although, technically, a mustang is a horse. By referring to the car as a "pony" you are, in a sense, degrading it.

Enjoy the new ride.

Bah, people have called the Mustang a "pony" or "pony car" for decades.

Sweet ride man. Hope she likes it!

Come if you must, but only if you must. For the day you find yourself upon my step will surely be the night you find peace along Jordan's edge.

Yeah that was the 'pun'. It's the original "pony car". It's also the very last of the body style meant to look like the 60's Mustangs (and it kind of has that feel driving it); the 2015 model is an all new body style.

Had it parked in front of my moms house (naturally she wanted to see it); snapped a couple pics.

Nice car. The term pony refers to the V6, with a V8 it would be a stallion -

Nice looking ride and finally something with half way decent mpg.

However, and this is just my opinion, Ford had mustangs in the past that started looking like a mitzubishi style car and this year is getting to look more and more like that again. Keep the styling the same, keep it looking like a Mustang of say two years ago... all those soft curves and rounding of everything just doesn't cut it when you think of mustang...

But then again, the bumpers of old are all long gone and now it is just a piece of plastic...

Do you mind me asking, how much that set you back? $30k plus?
