Remember My Little Pony, the toys/television show? Sure you do. Don’t deny it. Anyway, My Little Pony is back with a new series, “Friendship is Magic”, and for whatever reason (the emasculation of America, perhaps?), it has legions of loyal male fans who call themselves “Bronies”. Whole websites have popped up devoted to this Internet subculture…and it even seems to be infecting Mustang fans.
We stumbled across this video yesterday of a My Little Pony-themed Mustang GT on YouTube. And much to our horror, after a little bit of Googling, we came across this Hooniverse post about a Brony-War brewing in the infamous 24 Hours of Lemons Race
According to Hooniverse, the first team of Bronies is also campaigning a 5.0 Mustang with a 5-speed manual transmission. This car sports a bright-blue paint job and a rainbow-themed upper stabilizer that is very…magical. Hell, it even has a tail. These guys are serious about their tweenage girl-targeted television show.
And then we have this other My Little Pony Mustang which, if Hooniverse is correct, came to Lemons after being purchased for $300 (it was apparently rotting away in a Seattle alley). If that is the case, then this Mustang GT has come a long way and, yup, it has a tale two.
We’ll have to tune into and let you know which of the two Mustang teams come out on top…though if you ask us, there are no winners here. Just Bronies.
