A friend of mine recently sold his 66 vert GT replica for $10,000. I had never looked at the car in detail but it easily seemed worth that. He cited he was tired of living the stereotype of the old fat guy with the classic Mustang.

Does the stereotype fit? Would this drive anyone else to selling their car?

It might be interesting to have a poll to find out the average age and weight of the owners of each year of classic Mustang.

If they start "profiling" that, I am probably in trouble....

Hell no.

I am 46 which I guess qualifies me for being on the old side but I have owned my 65 since I was a young guy and will never sell it.

Besides, since I lost 30 pounds I am no longer fat /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

Old, fat and bald? yuch!!!

Now I am debonair, svelte and distinquished /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

I think that stereotype would arise with any late-50s to early-70s vintage car, with a Boomer trying to recapture their youth. Couple that with the stereotypical image of someone who works on their own car, and you get "old and fat".

Point is, I don't think the stereotype would be limited to Mustangs, and I don't think it fits particularly well anyway.

At 29 I do not think I fall into the old category (since the car is older than me) and yeah I could use to lose a few pounds. But I wouldn't call myself fat cause my little 95lb grandma always called me solid./forums/images/icons/wink.gif Maybe she was just being nice.

Would that be as opposed to being young, skinny, stupid and driving a Ricer that looks like it cruised through Pep Boys with a huge magnet ?

Classic "Chicken and Egg" Do I drive a Mustang because I am old and fat, or am I old and fat because I drive a Mustang?"

I don't see that stereotype fitting well... Of course, my Mustang is almost double my age, lol.

Forty years old, six feet tall, 192 pounds, 32 inch waist, and 46 inch chest. I don't fit in the coupes very well, but a convert is fine.
