The Top 25 Cars For Your Midlife Crisis Sep 1, 2016 by Ian (Driver Weekly)
At a certain age, a flashy new car says one thing: midlife crisis. From red convertibles to luxury imports, these are the expensive cars that will tell everyone you have a newfound sense of fun and a lot of money.
The original pony car remains an iconic investment for any collector, young or old. The Mustang introduced the “pony car” in 1964, an affordable performance coupe with a long hood and a short deck. The muscular style has been imitated but never surpassed over the intervening decades. While nothing can beat an original 1965 hardtop, there have been a range of powerful and stylish options over the years that can attract any new owner. While there have been a few periods despised by true enthusiasts, there’s a dedicated community of collectors that have maintained almost every past generation. Joining their ranks is an indisputable sign that your “midlife crisis” has kicked into high gear. True to their heritage, Mustangs aren’t as expensive or exclusive as a sports car or roadster, so you’ll see more of them on the road. But a classic model from the first generation or a premium trim, including the Shelby GT350 and GT350R, tips the scales from horsepower-hungry hooligan to midlife enthusiast with an eye for an American beauty.
