Why do minorities avoid Mustangs?

I don't know if it's just my observation, but it seems that there are
not many "minority" Mustang owners. In my area of North East, it's
mostly young white kids or middle-age rednecks (like me).
Any reason for this? I still feel that for the $$, Mustangs offer a
pretty good deal vs. some tricked out Honda/Mazda/Infinity....

Apples & oranges. A Mustang is nothing like a Honda, Mazda, Infinity, etc.

Re: Why do minorities avoid Mustangs?

Without taking offense, I am trying to figure out what minority you are
referring to? It almost sounds like you are meaning Asians only. Does
"minority" include all minorities?

Clarify please, and then I will help you answer the question.

No segregation whatsoever

Young and old, wealthy and poor... male and female.

The Mustang bridges all the gaps.

Don't discount us old-age rednecks, like me.

I may have to move to Tennessee. I've always had a "thing" for green people.

Maybe you should get off of Long Island once in a while. I see plenty of all
types here around Philly.

Suits me just fine. When Mustangs were "on top" with lots of groups,
the theft rate put them at number #2. I had my Mustangs stolen 4
times. Now that the minorities go after and drive Acuras and Hondas,
I feel much safer. And I haven't had a Mustang stolen for five years
now.
