July 2011 Ford Mustang sales posted

Like any cyclical market, the Ford Mustang sales trend follows suit with the adage “what goes up must come down” … and so on we go.  July’s final sales have been finalized, letting the June (2011 peak thus far) excitement down a bit amidst a continually downtrodden economy.  Add in a dash of triple-digit weather across most of the nation for nearly 40 days (and counting) and it’s not too hard to wonder why no one wants the 6-hour chess & tennis match of a dealership experience…new Ford Mustang or not.
