...'69 light green Buick Electra 455 big block, man she was a torque monster, pulled pretty hard when you stood on it from a stop nice floaty but solid Caddy-like ride being based off the Eldorado...

Not related to FWD Eldorado at all.

My bad Balth. I was thinking the FWD Eldo didn't start until the mid 70's. The Electra was definitely a RWD 455 BB 💪🏻🇺🇸

The Electra was a C-body w/ some shared structure w/ the Olds 98 and Caddy Calais/deVille...

Yep, I was thinking the '69 Caddy Coupe deVille, '69 Electra just didn't have the defined fins like the iconic Caddy.

High School buddy's Dad had a white '69 Coupe deVille with the 472ci BB. Such a sweet car!

Firewall & above the beltline; hardly worth mentioning.

[I probably could stop myself if I really tried.]

Cadillac V8 wasn’t a big block... because there wasn’t also a small block.

[I apologize.]

Chassis and internal panels also, door inner panels, etc, I would think?   Suspension?     I know in olden days GM had a lot less standardization across brands than they did from '77 onward. 

On a semi-related topic, a Hollander Interchange Manual seems like it would be a lot of fun to pour through.

Chassis: no. The rest I’m not completely sure of. I would think the doors might be different lengths relative to the chassis. They don’t interchange, regardless.

Point was, they’re certainly unique enough, being under the same corporate umbrella, that mentioning any interchanges is irrelevant.

I did not know how to feel when I first read this post.  My inner toxic masculinity got offended :D

I was upset when they fired Don Cherry plus your post and my inner toxic masculinity went haywire and got confused...

But seriously. I wanted to laugh at this post, because there was slight humour in it. But then..I got to thinking. The way its written, its like the brand of Mustang is ONLY of mullets, toxic masculinity and Whitesnake... and its a bad thing...

1. OK...Whitesnake.  Hair metal rock...mullets....

Not really.

Whitesnake.  Those are Jaguars.

2. Its only rock-n-roll, man.  But, Id accept if you had said Bon Jovi.  The Gino/New Jersey/Italian mullet hair style driving Mustangs and Camaros I could see, but that was a thing that existed only in the 1980s...

And no toxic masculinity there.

Just awesome machismo that today's males sorely lack!!! 

3. Which leads me to reason #3.

The Mustang in the 1960s was driven by the coolest cat of them all.

All the while being one of the coolest rides of them all....of ALL TIME in ANY generation and MARKET.

4. In the 1990s and into the 2000s, any mullet, or Ice Ice Baby 5.0 references have all been forgotten. 

And what you get is just the awesome branding of what Mustang is all about.

Movies that featured the Mustang as a backdrop. 

War of the Worlds

I am Legend

The remake of Gone in 60 seconds

Although I agree, that naming the EV as a Mustang branded EV may not be the brightest move (or it could be GENIUS  Image result for i don't know emoji" ), its not because the Mustang has a negative connotation, but because it might screw with the Mustang name...

Not so old Rolling Stones song...Like I said...its just Rock-N-Roll!!!

Toxic Femininity?

I will now consume Geritol and Metamucil and proceed to ramble for a few hundred words.

He was bigger in Canada, but had a couple top 40 hits in the US in the late 70s-early 80s.

      Mazda has an internal debate going on as to whether to electrify or not the next generation MX-5 Miata.  One of the major concerns is keeping the car light weight. The current car in base form tips the scales at just 2,345 lbs. and is incredibly well balanced, so adding batteries and electric motors could upset that balance. 
      Electric motors can be compact and powerful though, adding torque in places where gasoline motors are weak.  In order to provide that power, they require dense and heavy battery packs. Still, if power can be added to the 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque, it might make up for the weight increase in a straight line.
      Why do this? It's not like the MX-5 is a huge seller. It doesn't contribute to Mazda's overall volume in such a way that it should require efficiency tuning to meet fuel economy standards. Just 8,971 Miatas passed through Mazda dealerships in 2019.  The answer is in image. Mazda wants to maintain the appearance of being eco-friendly. They feel that the preference of people who enjoy driving sports cars could be changing, so Mazda needs to think about the direction society is going. The next Mazda MX-5 isn't due until 2022 or so, so Mazda still has some time to decide.
      Mazda is committed to the original formula that made the Miata an icon though, and any electrification will have to happen with the thought of maintaining lightness as a priority.

      The first product to come from Ford's investment into startup automaker Rivian will likely be a Lincoln SUV due to arrive sometime in 2022.  The vehicle will be all-wheel drive and compete against Rivian's own R1S which is priced at $72,500.  The models will share Rivian's skateboard platform, a design that combines the motors, batteries, controls and suspension into a single unit that the body can be built around.  
      The Rivian R1S is a three-row EV crossover with a range of up to 410 miles and will be built in Normal Illinois at a former Mitsubishi plant. It is expected to go into production sometime in 2021.
      There will also be a compact Lincoln EV crossover coming for 2021 that could be built on the same platform that the Ford Mustang Mach-E rides on. 
      EV sales have been tepid so far in the US, but Lincoln is banking on the EVs to be bigger sellers in the Chinese market.
