Duelling Ford Mustangs end up inventing synchronized crashing



A very important question: Did Ford Mustangs suddenly start wrecking at every single car meet, or are all of these Pony cars and their hapless drivers victims of the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon? The Baader-Meinhof phenomenon is when a piece of obscure information, once learned, seems to show up everywhere. Like when you buy that one-of-a-kind, super-rare car so you can stand out and then start seeing them everywhere on your morning commute. Or, in these cases, after one Mustang goes rogue, all car meet crashes seem to involve Mustangs.

Whether fair or not, Mustangs have cemented their reputation as cars and coffee crowd seekers. This video serves as a new warning. They are starting to hunt in packs!

These two Fords follow the usual script: Leave a gathering of car people, try to show off, crash mere feet away from people lining the streets. The tandem crashing represents the next evolution in Mustang idiocy.


Christopher Dowers got some mesmerizing aerial footage of the aftermath:
