You have no idea... how much it pains me to say this... but that is one beautiful car! :D I've been a Chevy man for 50 years now. And those lunk-heads at Chevy have done everything they could possibly do to ruin the *entire* lineup.

And I really, really would like 5 minutes alone with the youngster that came up with the idea of getting rid of the Camaro. My .02 cents.

YMMV

I like it. I like when the big manufacturers have the guts to do something different (go retro in this case). I miss the styling of the old days when each manufacturer had distinctive styling. Especially the old muscle cars. :driving:

2005 Mustang

Today I went to the West Michigan Auto Show in Grand Rapids. The new Mustang was there. It is even better looking than the pictures show.
There are styling elements from various Mustangs present. The roofline looks like the 67. The front grill and taillights looks like the 69. The showcar had stripes and a front bumper similar to the 65 Shelby.
I want one. I want one. I want one. I want one. I want one.

PS. I want one.

It looks like a MAN's car again instead of one for the women. I like it. :thumbsup: Hope they don't screw it up with a standard four cylinder like Dodge did with their retro model. I can't handle the rice burner noise from a muscle car. :furious:

They did take a lot of cue's from the earlyer cars. And did a REAL nice job with out it being TO retro. The rear shot of the car you would SWEAR you are looking at the back of my '70, and I REALY like the 65 Shelby GT350 style quarter glass.

I agree juggler.. the camero is a slick car.. id love to get a 2002 5.7L SS they are still pricey.. but awesome cars... (i think the firebirds have way too much plastic) Too bad, they are useless in the snow/ice.. ive got an older firebird that i just park for the winters.. i use the truck.. its not worth the hassle of the firebird.. it literally gets stuck on the driveway on flat surfaces...

The new vette sort of looks like the camero

It has a 202 hp six cylinder standard and the GT will be 300 hp with another version (Shelby?) that will have over 400 hp. It is based on the same chassis as the Jaquar so it ought to be one nice machine. Somehow ,someway, i'm gonna own me one of those. :D :D :D

It was nice

I've never really been a fan of Mustangs, however, that was a sweet commercial for it.

Looked like a nice performance vehicle. Lots of bell and whistles too for performance. They claim it will be one of the fastest production vehicle when released.

Are you sure you some of you guys aren't confusing this with the GT40 (not sure of that is the new model name)?

It is based on the old GT40's that won Lemans back in the 60's.

What I'm getting at is this is the model I saw on a SuperBowl ad. If the new Mustang is one of the fastest factory production cars, then most of us probably could not afford it. That is if you are comparing to top speed models such as Lamborghini, McClaren, etc. I think the GT40 repro will compete with the factory production "supercars". That being said, the new 'stang is awesome in it's own right.

Is that just a concept car? Or is that production

It really reminds me of the new vette... The vette has raised headlights not hidden like theyve had for the past styles
