I am thinking on replacing it with a new Ford Mustang Ecoboost, that is bad-ass, has 310HP, but only fit 2 people, costs 10% more on insurance and gas, and has no chrome detailing (only black plastic).
I am a lead design engineer, which is an intellectual-middle-class job, and I am a single male.
Which would suit someone like me better, the awesome muscle car or the spacious elegant middle class car?
I never wanted a sports car, but the last few weeks it was bugging me, I keep watching mustang reviews on YouTube...
A 4 cylinder Mustang is not a muscle car.

I'm tired of Joe sixpack in a Charger or Mustang GT doing 50mph on the left lane on the highway. How about move over to the right or drive a decent car that matches your driving style.

That's always the Prius that drives at 50mph in the left lane.

Ecoboost isn't the GT. This guy wants the less expensive version of the mustang

Neither, a decent SUV will tow your boat or camper. A 4 seat convertible will be fun in the sun and down to the beach. I have had and enjoyed both, still driving a convertible.
