    Is there something wrong with wanting the fb above over the 05?:D Must be cause I'm a die-hard classic fan. But the 05 stang is very impressive for a redesign. I'll just be waiting to see how ford and the aftermarket take care of it.

    That's the one thing that bugs me about the production version - too much rear overhang. Makes it look a little stretched. Trunk space is not the reason I buy Mustangs. Otherwise, I like the looks of the 05.

    HA!, Yes, thank you for posting that, I was looking for that, I keep hearing how much overhang and how different the production is from the concept. That proves just how close the production was to the concept. I think this is the first time that a production model was so close to the concept. Rememeber the 63 Mustang? What about the Mach III concept? I'm not directing this towards you SVTdriver, just to all those doubters.


    Ahhhh, feels so good to rant every once in a while.:p

    I think the production version looks pretty similiar to the concept in terms of the lines of the car. The production car looks better with the wheels, the back end is nicer looking in my opinion too.

    You really can't expect the production to be just like the concept, there are things like cost, practicality, and safety requirements. If you expected the concept, I think you pretty much deserve to be let down. I loved the concept, and I love the production, from what I see, I'm going to very happy to have one of these in my garage. Ford never said, "The production is the concept car." They said it would look similar, and it does.

    The really sad part is how many people actually believed. That Ford was actually going to build the concept. And never took into account all the factors that made it only a concept.

    by the comparison there it sure appears ford didn't drift too far from the 99-03 stangs.

    I'm not real big on the tiny quarter window, but other than that...man I can't wait to see that thing lowered with some aftermarket wheels. :eek:

    The production model does look SWEET.

    I JUST wished the front end would have been a little more aerodynamic.

    I doubt they even put this car in the wind tunnel.

    I also THINK that little rear window will even pop open... possibility?

    Well at least the door doesnt seem to be 6' long like 94-current models. :nice:

    I think they will look sinister with Draglites or Pro stars....skinnies and fatties. Wonder who will be the first to do that. How long do you think before someone has wheeltubs in one....soon i hope.

    Personally I like the quarter window. Reminds me of the early Shelby and I'm sure that was the inspiration for that. The tire to fender clearence is much better looking than the 99-04. They finally put the gas cap on the correct side.

    I don't like the front end on the concept or production but the production front looks the better of the two in appearence to me. Nostagia is okay to a point but that just looks like two steps backwards in aero. If they finally put the steering column in the car straight and paid some attention to pedal placements and seat comfort that'll be a plus. Those wheels are BUTT UGLY!

    Do you reckon they used a tranny that will shift right? Will the IRS work for everyone? Time will tell so I'm stickin with my 99 GT till it does.
