#20 ????
I don't get it. I thought for sure it would be in at least the top 10 if not the top 5. I haven't seen nearly as many as I had hoped. I really thought there would be another Mustang buying frenzy like there was in 64/65. I guess I'm dreaming again. I will have to say I saw my first convertible today (vintage green color) and it looked absolutely super !! I take back all the negative things I've said about the car. It was really a head turner.
Maybe people are waiting for the "new" to wear off before buying....?

Keep in mind the Mustang plays to a niche market. To even be in the top 20 with those other everyday cars is an achievement. You notice you don't see any Corvettes, PT Cruisers, GTOs, 350Zs, BMWs, etc...

No Camaro/Firebirds either... {snicker snicker...}

They are out there. I'm seeing a lot of them around me. GTs seem to be more rare. They're selling like hotcakes. Here's a link to show what I mean:

We have a sonic blue GT convertible that just showed up at a local dealer. They want $5k over sticker!!

$39k and it could be yours!

I saw a ton of them down in SoCal even saw a few verts too. If you haven't seen the new vert WOW it's a looker.
