16. Ford Mustang
The original pony car is a coveted part of any owner’s garage and with good reason. The Mustang birthed the lightweight V8 sports car that we see today. Without the Mustang you’d never have a Camaro or a Hellcat. But the Mustang was born out of necessity at a time when the world of cars was changing. It’s not uncommon for a Mustang owner to hold onto their vehicle for 10 years or more.
The most preferable models are of course the earliest Mustangs to come off of the lot. But there are also some pretty desirable late model Mustangs such as the Bullet and the Cobra. In addition to being scary fast, the Mustang is a livable car. That’s why most owners actively drive their Mustangs. Whether you are going to the grocery store or just going out for a Saturday cruise, the Mustang is a car that will constantly put a smile on your face.
They remain among the most retained automobiles in the world.
