Back in 1964 Ford launched the Mustang. The first of the new class pony cars. It was compact, affordable and sporty. Aimed at young people it revolutionized the industry. Not like muscle cars who were bigger and focused on performing just with a massive engine under the hood. Nowadays things became more complicated. And most of its rivals disappeared over the years. The Ford Mustang however never gone out of production. But the differentiation of being a pony car is now open for debate. I think tradition still plays a role. But doesn't imply that terms like pony or muscle car couldn't be applied a little more liberally. (Photo by @ford)
