This Ford Mustang Is Really Owning It

Andrew P Collins May 12, 2018. 20 comments

The Ford Mustang is an affordable, powerful and occasionally unforgiving car. Those qualities have helped it earn a reputation of, uh, skidding out of control and plowing into groups of onlookers. Whoever owns this one clearly isn’t ashamed of the association.

I’m going to go ahead and guess that some people may find this decal “in poor taste” but it’s like an internet meme come to life so I think I’m obligated to share it with all of you.

In case your eyes aren’t as good as they used to be:

...Yeah.

Between that and the “scar” over the left headlight I think we’ve got some pretty clear indicators that this car’s owner has committed to the Villain aesthetic. Or at least leaned into the Mustang’s reputation as the most dangerous car to watch leaving a car show .

Hat tip to Oleg!

Sun-heated steel from the dash; stretched leather; a vague tinge of nicotine on Ward’s jacket. One thing was missing, though: gasoline. The car wasn’t burning any. But when Ward...

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  Long, meandering adventures are the real reason I like cars. Baja Mexico in particular, in all its rugged and remote glory, has been a favorite stomping ground of mine. A year ago, a big crash sidelined me from such things. Now, I’m increasingly back in the saddle, so I want to get off the grid...

I finally realized...
