Welcome to the Stable: All-Electric Mustang Mach-E

All lot of my muscle car guys are not happy about the "new" Mustang SUV. Here is a great article about this topic and the history of the original Mustang that explains it all. Enjoy!!

Hemmings News: Ford blew up the internet in November when it unveiled an all-electric, sport utility at the Los Angeles Auto Show and said it was naming this vehicle, uh… Mustang. Mustang Mach-E to be specific.

Mustang? The original pony car? The sexy fastback that a turtle-necked, sport-jacketed King of Cool double-clutched and flogged in Bullitt? The car that revived affordable American performance in the late 1980s and 1990s? The car that Carroll Shelby tuned up and renamed, creating a legend, second only to the Cobra, in the 1960s and again in the 2000s? That Mustang?

Yep, that Mustang. Its name now also applies to a generic football-shaped, hatchback, battery-powered vehicle with a tablet computer hanging off the dashboard where the center stack should be. You have our condolences. Take solace in the fact that the actual Mustang still exists and is arguably greater than ever.

And what about that car that we all know and love: The original Mustang? It, too, survives in great quantities and remains approachable and affordable. The 1965-’66 Mustang might be one of the ultimate gateway drugs into the American collector-car hobby.

There are likely several for sale within easy driving distance of your doorstep right now in various states of tune: restored, modified, driver-quality, half-assembled, stalled project, etc. Parts for these cars are not a problem. They’re plentiful and affordable, thanks to the perennial popularity of Ford’s first sporty coupe (and convertible).
