I personally think the 5.0 is back theme is genius. It's exactly what Ford needed to bring even more attention to the Mustang and how far along it's come. I was fortunate to own an '88 LX Notchback 5.0L as my first car when I turned sixteen in 1994. The car was bought with my hard earned money saved by working at our local grocery store and I loved it. The car really, was quite ugly. It was the "dull" red that was available that year with the black trim around the car. In some angles it looked almost reminisent to a "K-Car". But all it took was someone to look at the 5.0 badge on the side of the car and they showed instant respect. My 5.0L was legendary in my town even though I never raced it and it took me a few years to save up for mods and a new paint job. With my mods, I would have been lucky to have been producing 25 hp more than stock, but it didn't matter. Everyone I knew saw the car as invincible and the amount of rep it got for no reason was ridiculous. Even devout Chevy Camaro and Pontiac Trans Am fans would talk about the 5.0 as if it was something special. No doubt Ford knew this with the new movement towards the 5.0 that they would bring loyal fans out of the woodwork, as well as people who bought into the mystique of yesteryear. Even me, a once devout Mustang fan who had lost his way over the years, has been rekindled by the new 5.0. I'm in a place in my life where buying a brand new GT is basically out of the question. I have a family, mortgage, other car payments, etc, etc so it just isn't in the cards. However, saying all that I am once again considering eventually buying a used Mustang (most likely a 4.6L) and then years beyond that I'm sure I'll be considering a new one again. Ford has brought a fan back into the fold with this new vehicle. I can't be the only one.
