I've owned two Fords before, a 63 Falcon convertable (still have it) and a very decrepid old '84 Bronco II that i had in college. Just before graduation from college I flew to Houston for a job interview. When I flew home with the job I immediately got on the internet and started searching for the car I was going to buy. I compared horsepower, torque, price, and style. I also liked the styling of the RX-8, the Nissan Z,the BMW Z3, Audi TT, and Crossfire.. many of which I'd still not be able to afford. I wanted the most raw power, 4 seats so that i could drive more than one friend, and affordability. The Mustang was the only one of all the cars I was considering that fit all of those criteria. A sweet bonus was that it looks the coolest of all the cars I saw. I fell in love with it at first sight! I've always prefered Fords and this will be my first Mustang. My Falcon has a 200cc straight 6 in it out of a '64 Mustang (that kinda counts, i suppose) so can I say that I've had owned 1/4 of a Mustang before?
