You either loved or hated the SVO Mustang, which boils down to either you got it or you didn’t. I can’t help but think the new EcoBoost Mustangs will garner the same response from the muscle-car community.
The car had only 17,000 miles on it — it was a true barn find. Bruce doesn’t really drive the car that much because he doesn’t want to replace the factory original tires in fear of having it depreciate in value. Part of me says that decision is epically stupid.
The tribute, which has been open since Labor Day, is a Ford Mustang-themed maze spread out over nearly seven acres of a corn field at Westview Orchard in Michigan’s Washington Township.
Ford hasn’t even begun selling the new Mustang and they think they already have a problem with it. Ford believes dealers are going to have a problem selling the four-cylinder turbo EcoBoost Mustang; so much so that they have begun to send out trainers to show the salespeople how to sell this car.
It’s rather staggering: a survey commissioned by Ford as part of the ICON50 found that 42 percent of Americans can’t remember the last time they tried something new. Ford is doing something about that with the new Mustang’s launch.
