    Wow! Thanks for the picture of the cover. I like that. The text was a little hard to read, especially the reversed page, but the pics were great.

    Good job.

    I don't want to take credit for the pictures.... They were actually posted by mystang on BON.

    Well, looks like I have a goal now - save up enough to be able to afford an 05 Mustang GT by the fall. That car is sooo sexy. *dry hump*

    You should have wrote the title in caps and said something like:

    "PICS OF THE PRODUCTION 05 STANG FROM MT!!!!!!!"

    God gave us CAPS LOCK for a reason. :D :rlaugh:

    Anyone notice the small vette reference on the front cover. Me neither.

    The 2005 Mustang GT and V6 look really nice. I will be waiting until 2006/2007 before I get one though. I want Ford to work all the bugs out of all the 2005's and maybe add on some blown side scoops and a blown hood scoop to the design.

    2005 Production Pictures From Mt!!!

    The title "Here you go" was a bit subtle so I thought I'd draw more attention to it.


    I'll post the pics here also:

    There are a few pages missing I was told.

    One important point is that there will be a special edition sooner rather than later.

    That's nice, better than the current model I'd like to say, interior-wise anyway. The outside I like, but I like the current just as good.
