When you drive a modern, (euhh 2 moderns !) Mustang, you look for a vintage one. And as I own a vintage, I'm attracted by a recent one !
(sorry for my bad english, be lenient with me)
I have wanted a classic Mustang pre: 2003 as well.
I did not want to jump on the 2001 Bullitt edition Mustang as much as I like them, I held back.
I was in serious search mode for the FB upto 2002 UNTIL...
...I found the M1R site and found out the Mach1 is being offered again by Ford.
Game over I had to get one after I test drove a new Mach1.
It does not mean I still don't want a classic, but now $$s have held be back. I should have a classic within the next couple years (he hopes!)
