Lieberman Corrals the Stangs
Aside from the early, dainty-looking Mustangs and their Shelby siblings, I never really "got" the whole 'Stang cult. During my formative years, the mucho macho models cruising the mean streets of Providence were bloated Pony Car parodies; great honking beasts with about as much cornering prowess as a breeze block. The late '70's and '80's Mustangs were small, slow and stupid looking. In the '90's, the design started to come right and SVO made the model into a defensible choice for power mad pistonheads. But I still couldn't understand why anyone would lionize a car whose heyday lay almost forty years in the past. And then the "new" Mustang arrived. Now that I get: a Disney-style re-imagining of an idealized Mustang pulled from our collective unconscious. But the interior! And what's with the solid rear axle? Still, the GT sounds nice, goes OK and looks great. According to Jonny Lieberman, the Shelby GT-H sounds better, goes faster and looks like it sounds and goes. Listen to him preach the gospel to a former Mustang atheist turned agnostic.
