    Hi all,

    Been to the All Ford Meet near Maidstone in Kent today - over 400 cars there, but only around 12 Mustangs. Of those, only 4x were SN95s but if anyone is interested...

    It’s so weird to see pretty much stock sixers being shown. But I guess since mustangs in general weren’t sold a lot over there then they all are a site to see.

    They were never sold over here - all we have is imports, either Japanese or direct from the USA. Current models became available from the local Ford dealer about 2 years ago, but they've put the steering wheel on our side, which is just wrong - it's an American car so should be on the left!!!

    V8s are common - Jaguar / Mercedes / BMW (used to have a Mercedes SL500 V8 before the Mustang) but, yes, gas price is a rip-off, ranging from £1.24 to £1.50 a litre depending where you go.

    V6 is common (my daily driver Jag X-Type is one) but again gluggy and high fuel consumption.

    But hybrid / electric - Never!!!
