See 2nd Gear Story on Jalopnik this morning.

Good to hear the Camaro is still winning, but I hope Ford can still keep the Mustang or something going there so people don't lose their jobs.
@Rogue Leader:

Thanks for keeping an eagle eye to spot this and share it in the forum.

It makes me sad as, nowadays, every and any failing business operation, regardless of where it fails, delays worldwide economic recovery.
We are all in this together, and we are not out of the woods yet.

I do not know how many assembly plants are there for the Ford Mustang so it is difficult to fathom the total impact of this in the continued viability of that model.

However, I fully expected that one the "new era" muscle cars will face hardship, perhaps even demise.

It happened to the previous F-Body which folded in the 2002 model year.

We are lucky this resurrection of the CAMARO struck a deep fiber with auto enthusiast a has gotten such a strong return.

I will not write an obituary yet, but like they used to say in the tv series HIGHLANDER "In the end, there can be only one!".
