It’s easy to look past—even resent—the flurry of Ford Mustangs on the streets today. While the car has since accrued stigmas like one that is driven by ‘douchelord assholes’ who rev their engines alongside the distressed elderly, the car was once an automobile to marvel at. Although the car has undergone a number of stylistic changes (let’s just forget about the third, fourth and fifth generation models), the Mustang nonetheless packs the same good looks and brute force as it ever did. Take the Ford Mustang GT, arguably the most revered edition of the batch. A car that debuted back in 1965 as an alternative model with quicker steering, a five-dial gauge indicator and a wide range of interior and exterior stylistic upgrades.
