50th Anniversary Top 10 List

So 2014 is the 50th Anniversary of the Mustang. I'm a recent fan of the Mustang, but in that short time have come to really appreciate it's history. Below is a list of my top ten Mustangs, based on style, performance, or just plain controversy.

1. 1964 - 65 Mustang Hardtop
The car that would launch a model for the next 50 years!

2. 1968 Mustang GT Fastback (Bullitt)
Two of the coolest icons ever!

3. 2013 Shelby Mustang
The first over 200mph production Mustang.

4. 1969 Boss 302
Power house, race winner.

5. 2013 Boss 302
So nice, they had to do it twice, even better than the first.

6. 1972 Mustang Sprints
Very large Mustangs, many different styles.

7. 4th Generation Mustangs
Finally a comeback from those dark days of the 80's, and a lead up to the 5th gen. Mustangs.

8. 1974 Mustangs
Trying to recapture the magic of the original, still some great lines.

9. 1978 King Cobra 
If the Mustang and the trans am had a kid.

10. 2015 Ford Mustang
Continuing 50 years of awesome!

I hope someone in 50 years can do their top 10 of the past 100 years!
