The Ford Mustang has definitely received a lot of hate in the last few years. With the advent of memes and compilation videos, we have been shown a sports car that not only crashes into every available object, but people as well. You’d think that the Mustang would be revered as an American classic, but the internet is just a weird place, we guess.
Needless to say, all this drummed has not been fantastic for the Mustang’s image, and there doesn’t seem to be an end to the joke. Surely, there are just as many Chevy Camaro or Dodge Challenger crashes, but we don’t hear about them often, because the blood has been in the water for the Mustang for way too long. People tend to want to keep an existing joke going rather than attempt a new one, and this isn’t any different.
All that said, what’s the exact reason behind all the negativity surrounding the Ford Mustang? Let’s take a look!
