I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED MUSTANGS BUT, IT WAS POINTED OUT TO ME THAT MUSTANG DRIVERS HAVE COMPLEXES! APPARENTLY FROM VIEWING THIS FORUM, IT IS TRUE.
Good, should keep kids like you from driving one and making the rest of us look bad. It's not supposed to look like something straight out of the Fast and the Furious. It's a small, cheap car with an understated look and insane power under the hood... just as it always has been. If you don't like it then you need to find another car that suits your tastes and not **** when Ford refuses to turn its muscle car into an outrageously priced sports car in full ricer apparel.
This one is so obvious i can't believe people are not saying...
Its OBVIOUS that ford is doing what they did in 99-00 , 01+
They are going to leave some room for improvement...they will most likely add a functional hood scoop in 06-07 for the GT and raise tweak for a little more hp say another 15hp or so? The intake is made for a functional hoodscoop it would not take much to make a functional one.
can i be your friend?
ps. you're not Ron Jeremy, are you?
youre right, a mustang (v8) is NOT a sports car.
Yes you appear to be having quite a nice complex.
SCREW YOU, I'M 30 YEARS OLD! AND BY THE WAY, I ONLY BUY AMERICAN.
GET A LIFE!!!!
Someone is wound up higher than honda civic trying to race.
30 years old, Going on 10 Years old.......
yeah i hate most fake scoops(03-04's) I think you you want fake hood scoops they have to be like
I dont know many people that are 30 and yell/type in all caps and such
This entire argument is really a waste. Do you really think that hood scoops will not become available? Either wait for the aftermarket or for Ford to update. It's going to happen.
Well at least see if you can get to 25 posts before you are banned.
On the topic of hood scoops though...and I already posted this on another thread, but if you look on the underside of the hood, there place for a cut out that would be perfect for a scoop, picture is on the first page of the "05 with the hood up" thread. Hope we can see a functional hood scoop sometime soon.
Though a non-functional scoop makes a car look nice and more "bad-ass",I would much rather have a functional one.
The original Mustang didn't have scoops, so putting scoops on is not a "retro" thing. I believe it was about 69 before there were any "scoops" and that was a real shaker that was functional. Fake scoops are just that - fake.
And before somebody says the GT-350 had scoops - that is right - but I said "Mustang" and the GT-350 wasn't. It was a "Shelby". And they were functional, including the side ones.
And for the statement that without scoops it doesn't look like a sports car, sport cars usually don't have scoops, but that is irrrelevant, as the Mustang is not a sports car.
Personally, I like the nice clean hood, and it is true to the heritage with that. Now if it just wasn't rounded off so much on the front..... (sorry...couldn't resist).
That looks like the bogus hood that was on my Firebird, before I took it off and put a functional RamAir on. Yuk. Although I like my Firebird, I also like Mustangs - why would you want to copy a Firebird on a Mustang? Leave the hood smooth, like a fast car.
