What exactly is the market for breast cancer Mustang? Or it's as yet unproduced counterpart, prostate cancer Mustang?

But hey, if they did actually build a 30th anniversary Panthers, then Ford would actually have to run a commercial for them for the first time in a decade.

The Mustang Pink Warrior editions have seemed to sell okay. You see, the Mustang actually has a retail customer base. Of that large retail customer base, many of them are women. Many of them I am willing to bet are women who are breast cancer survivors. Ford has always been a strong supporter of breast cancer research. The Pink Warrior Mustang is simply an extension to that. They haven't had the same push for prostate cancer research, so your attempt at humor is pretty weak. (Oh yeah, men get breast cancer too, you know.)

If Ford built a 30th anniversary Panther, even with commercials, who is going to buy them again? They have no retail presence. And what would be the point of it? What does it stand for? "Ford Crown Victoria 30th Anniversary Edition: Celebrating 3 decades as America's #1 Taxi"???

We'll never know. And of course, all Panthers sold during those three decades where ALL fleet cars, eh?

Yeah....there's no investment at all in other 30+ year old products like Mustang or F-series. :hysterical:

The Panther platform is a lame duck. It's time to accept this reality and move on.

We've been through this before! It's called "Warriors in Pink"...it's not like you have to be female or know someone with breast cancer.

And it's the second time someone (if not you) has disparaged men with or survivors of prostate cancer....and it's a blue ribbon BTW. I can imagine a blue trimmed Mustang GT "Blue Warrior" to benefit cancer research.
