Yeah, same thing here.HairyCanary said:The '05 will sell quite well, I expect. This is the first time in my own experience where random non-Mustang people that I meet (at work, for example) say things like "damn, that's a nice looking car", or "that's the first Mustang I've liked in years", and so on. When the non-enthusiasts are saying good things about it, especially the import lovers, then I think it means this one is going to be a hit.
You're out of touch with car buying Americans. People were knocking their dealer's doors down to get their orders in for 2005 Mustangs this past Monday (the 1st day dealers could really place orders with Ford). Name some other cars that will be produced in quantities nearing 200,000 units annually that customers were fighting to get their orders in 3-1/2 months before the vehicle goes into production? Ford's biggest problem with th 05 Mustang will be that they can't build enough of them to meet the demand.calvado said:Ford screwed it this time... That car isn't going to go far I predict...

I did not say that the 04's aren't selling. In fact on a Year to Date basis, 04 Mustang sales are ahead of '03. This is a large Ford dealer that sells a lot of Mustangs, which is why they have 35 on their lot. Also becasue they sell a lot of Mustangs the got to be one of the 40 dealers that had a 2005 Stang on their lot as part of the GAPDII and 40 city tour that the 05 is on. The reason why I mentiond the 35 - 04 stangs was to emphasized the point that I had the chance to compare an '05 to a couple '04's that weren't more than 20' away from the 05.blazinsteed said:Just because there are 35 there doesn't mean they aren't selling.
But you have to remember that is only your experience. I have talked with a lot of people who are not on these forums and don't own mustangs. And the majority of them like the car. And several are considering buying one. So your experience is different from mine. And to say that the minority likes it. Is only true in your exp. Sure it probably won't sell like the beattles or accords. But it will sell over well 100k units. And there are GM people jumping ship to buy it. Since GM is so late to the show with an affordable pony car.sixstringthing said:I completely agree with the original poster. Will it sell? I don't see why not, the Mustang name has been around for a LOOOONG time... not like it's just gonna die out. But aside from that, the car is UGLY. Yea most people on the forums like it.... and who are most of the people on the forums? Car guys, drag racers.... in the real world, that's a minority. I saw it in person with several friends (guys/girls... some into cars, some not.. i don't know) they all thought it looked like crap. "It's so boring", "It looks like a giant box", "It has no curves"... is all I heard. The majority of people don't buy a car to race it, and a good amount of people aren't muscle car fans. People want to see "sexy" looking cars with lots of curves and details, this thing has none. I can definately see it appealing to older guys and "car people' though.
