I saw this Mustang in the commuting traffic and said to myself, "Too bad I'm not in the GTO." Anyway, we finally get side by side, first in line at a light, and I figure, "What the hell." I look over to the Mustang GT driver. She's a blue haired old woman, about 70, and obviously thinking about her doctor's appointment, not street racing. The light turned green and I pulled away normally. So did she, and I was three blocks ahead before I knew it. :D

OK, it's not a kill, but it was funny at the time. The Mustang GT looked great and it seemed a waste that so much muscle was being babied along by grandma. Have you noticed that probably half of the Mustangs you see on the road are driven by people who wouldn't dream of punching the throttle? That's not a BAD thing, just an example of how the Mustang is "mainstream" and the GTO is "unique."

Well when ya sell something like 100,000 units per year, a few are going to end up in the hands of the non-enthusiast. The person I bought my car from was actually a middle-aged woman, so she obviously wouldn't race the car, which suited me fine, knowing that it wasn't beaten on or anything :D... now it's a different story ;).

I remember losing to an Olds Alero when I had my 1993 4-cyl Mustang. That was a sad sad day :(

Nice "kill" :thumbs:

Age is in the eye of the beholder... I am sure someone has looked at me in my GTO and wondered why that Grandma is driving it :sneaky: :p ;)

:) I promise to post kills and deaths. I'm not a sore loser. It WOULD have been funny if she had stomped it and left me in the dust. :)

Of course, it wouldn't have been funny if I were in the GTO. :eek:
