Style * Mustang
With the wind turning my already fluffy hair into candyfloss I don’t care, because this is so much fun. Cruising in a Mustang convertible from Miami down the US1 to Key West is a bucket list entry for sure. The sun beats down from blue skies and I am grinning from ear to ear. This is a great car to drive, with air-con seats it’s comfortable as well as responsive, pokey and functional; all the qualities that make for great design. Yet, in a era of equality where there is no more pink or blue, I wonder if it is still too masculine for me and too aggressive looking for the UK? Can I imagine turning (growling) up at Tesco for my click n’ collect on a rainy day?
