    Geez, big wonder the II came out with 47+%. in that other poll.


    So when the car manu love kicking around is removed, Your free to tell what you really think.

    Geez, it's pretty tough actually picking. I consider myself a Mustang fanatic and find things i like in every model. Not trying to be a brown noser or anything, but it's true, i would never decline a Mustang from any year! :hail2:
    With that being said, if i absolutely HAVE to pic my least favourite, i guess it would end up being the '71-'73 years. :shrug: Not really sure why, cause there is some kick a$$ nice ones around. Maybe their tied with the early 80's as being my least favourite. :shrug: I don't know, like i said, i like them all. If your a true Mustang enthusiast, shouldn't that be the case?

    I'd vote 79-84 and 87-93 myself... I really love the 64-78s and the 85-86s... And I like the 94+ for looks, but wouldn't own a 96+ model due to the engines.

    Ouch-47.06% on the big bodies. Oh well. I really don't think there's a particular body style I actually dislike, but I went with the early sn95's-94-98, since I guess that is my least favorite...

    I never was a fan of the 65/66's. But, they're included with the 67-70's, so that's out. I voted the 87-93's. I just think they're bland looking.

    I can't vote for any of em as the ugliest since in my family the mustangs are as such:
    65, 66, 66, 73, 73, 77, 77, 77, 78, 78, 80, 84, 88, 92, 98

    Got pretty much all of the body styles aside from the 67-68 / 69-70 and 99+

    My vote went with the 71-73. I drove a 71 Mach 1 a few years ago and couldn;t see out of the back window...AT ALL. They were huge, and to me a pony car should me smaller, more agile, and quick. I LOVE the 76-78 Cobra's and 78 King Cobra, LOVE the 85-86 4 eye'd Fox mustangs, and i like the 94-98 Mustang. Drove a '02 GT that belongs to a friend of mine the other week and that was awsome....the incredibly smooth power delivery.

    I didn't put a vote in, but that's because I dislike any of the "Fair-stangs" (fox-chassis). They're all basically hopped-up Fairmont's with a shorter wheelbase. I'm also not too fond of the pre-1970 fastbacks. The newer generations are a bit too "rounded off" for my liking, but at least an attempt was made to recapture the Mustang look.

    I voted for the 79 - 86. I just don't think the front ends were that of a true mustang, they didn't look like they were going to attack, as all the other mustangs do. my bro had a 79 capri and i liked that but thats about as far as it goes for any fox body. :) Just remember. Any mustang is a mustang toooooo ( sorry whoever coined the phrase )

    Well, overall I dislike the '94 models the most, I really hated those taillights in the first few years of that style car, and felt the scallop section looked awkward in relation to the body lines, unlike on the II where it seems to look "right". The 99+ models are much more stylish in my eyes, than the 94-98's, while retaining the same basic shape.
    As for ugly...I'd say any Mustang that runs into the backside of a Hummer could be immediatly be considered in that catagory. It's just a matter of physics!

    79-86

    I think that the 79- 86 had a few years there that were less appealing to me, not sure why, as some of them looked very sharp. I just keep picturing a 1981 stang w/ ragged out tan interior lots of body rust, and a 4 popper w/ an automatic tranny, no hubcaps on plain wheels, and bald tires. Oh, I almost forgot, covered w/ mud, and a big #3 in the back glass. You know the one I'm talking about!! lol.

    Haha, its all good. I don't mean any offense to MII owners either I was just curious. While they are my least favorite I don't hate them in any way. They just dont quite "do it" for me. :canflag:

    That's how I basically feel about the whole "Fox-chassis" era. I've seen a few (and even owned a couple) that looked okay, but they keep reminding me more of a sporty Fairmont than a Mustang.

    Just for the record, I'd be WAY happier owning a Pinto wagon with a 2.8 and a Rad 4-speed (or a 302/C4 even) than ANY car based on the Fairmont. Just my own opinion of course.
    :nice:

    Ouch, LOL. There are actually 2 pinto's around here that are done up pretty good, one of them is 351w powered and I believe the other has a 460. One of them is tubbed the other isn't, I forget which one is though. Maybe i'm crazy but no matter how fast they are I could never give up any V8 Stang for a Pinto. No matter what you do to it, it's still a pinto, and it's still a complete eye sore. Ah well, not everyone likes the Foxbodies, I LOVE mine but to each their own. Do you have any pics of your car Blue coyote ?

    No, sadly. My II has been sitting with no drivetrain for about 9 years. I never seem to have the time or money to devote to it. Its a 78 T-top fastback. Emerald Green with white interior. It was originally a 302/C4, but I'm thinking of dropping my Rad 4-speed into it, along with the "Built-to-the-NUTS" 2.8 out of my trail rig BII (200 hp and about a 7K redline). If I tried to bump the power any further, I'd have to do a few thousand in machine work to keep the crank inside the block (the engine came out of a 76 Pinto, after it torqued the front subframe over 8" out of true and blew the back window right out of the car....That's BEFORE I added an MSD6A, headers, dual cats and glasspacks, and full dual 2.25" pipes)

    I have to move in another month and a half, so the trail rig is being stripped anyway....
