Will this be the Mustang you regret not buying 40 years from now?

Posted by on March 24, 2010 with 1 Comments

Our friends at Autoblog have written a terrific article on the 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 titled “The Best Car We’d Never Buy“.  It’s worth a read for sure, but prompts the question: will this be the Mustang that you regret not buying…..40 years from now?

With the escalation of muscle car values in the last decade there are many that wish they’d never have “sold that Mustang” back in the day. Think about it – the old car you could have paid $4200 cash for in the 1960’s could be a $100,000 car today (or maybe more)!  Imagine if you’d have just had the foresight to option out the best model with all the great speed doo-dads and then tuck it away in a giant Zip-Lock bag for the next 40 years.  The car would be perfect.  No rust.  No miles.  No dings.  You’d have a perfect piece of history – a perfect valuable piece of history.

History may be repeating itself.  There are many bright minds in the automotive world today that believe the muscle car renaissance we’re seeing in the U.S. now with the Mustang, Challenger, and Camaro will be a short lived blip on the timeline of automotive history.  The reasons for this line of thinking are many – but most center on the fuel standards that auto manufacturers must have in place by the year 2020 and worries over further restrictions on internal combustion engine emissions (especially from high performance engines).

What do you think?  Is this the swan song for the modern muscle car?  Is it time to run down to the dealership and order up a new piece of history?
