2. Ford Mustang -- $22,200
Credit goes to Ford for inventing the ponycar segment when it introduced the Mustang in 1964. This long and low two-door struck a chord with young people growing up in the flower-power period, and they snapped ‘em up by the truckload. The car is fast approaching its 50th birthday, a milestone marked by five decades of delinquent rear-wheel-drive behavior. The company nailed the formula when it introduced the Mustang all those years ago, and it’s stayed true to its roots. A powerful six-shooter is the base engine, a resurrected 5.0-liter V8 is the performance option and for drivers that want nothing but the best they can opt for the hell-raising Shelby GT500 with a borderline-insane 662 horsepower.
