    Although I own a classic '65fb now, I like the '67fb better. It has more sophistication, looks more agressive, supports a wider range of engines, etc. I like the '68fb less because of the trim changes, grille changes, interior changes, etc. '69-'70 are nice cars too but they're getting bigger than pony cars should be.

    Well thats pretty interesting. The poll results so far are about where you'd figure them to be. Based on overall popularity, and sales for that matter.

    I'd have to say I like them in that order too.

    65-66 favorite
    67-68 next
    69-70 a bit less
    71-73 last

    Go ahead, call me cheaky
    always like 67/68

    i'm undecided about coupe or fastback tho........used to be on the coupe side but latly the fastbacks have struk my fancy.........


    and then its the 65/66 fastbacks......
    and i guess the 69/70 should get a mention
    Its the nose and taillights on the 71-73 i dont care for not the general over all size...

    I think the board actually speaks for itself where as very few of us don't actually own our favorite already, so the poll is not too surprising. My picks are:

    69 Favorite
    67 Next
    65 A bit less (that one was for you Blake:p )
    71's and up last

    I think more importantly though is the why's not the what's. I like all the classic Stangs and wouldn't kick any of 'em outta tyhe garage for eatibng crackers, but I like the original model years on just about all as opposed to it's next year modified counterpart, ie: 67's more than 68's etc, and here's the why's for my choices.

    69's because of so many specifics for that year like last GT first Mach 1 only quad headlamp setup first true muscle car year etc. The list could go on for ever.
    67's because they are just too cool looking, first year with big block engines, Shelby's influence at it's best and a beautiful interior when done in Aluminum.
    65's because there just isn't much of a challange in the restoration and with the million or so made, they are everywhere. True they are the icon model that first hit's everyone's brain when you utter the term "Classic Mustang" but I see them more as the entry level man's car and not the Mustang enthusiaists car as much. (Boy, am I gonna catch sh|t for that one)
    71's because, well, they are the hardest to restore, they are truly Moosestangs and the farthest departure from a pony car that any car could be and I miss the classic muscle car cues that all got too modernized, like the door latchees and tail lamps, too disco for me plus I've just never been able to get that image of Mary Tyler Moore cruising around in one outta my head, definitly not cool.

    Watch Diamonds are Forever a couple times and wash the Mary Tyler Moore thing away. A nice Mach 1 and a young Jill St. John... {drool x2} :nice:

    Of course I had to vote for the 1st gen. But it is an unfair question. I would love to have the 66 interior in a 67 fastback. They just never put all the different things that I like into a single model.
    My ranking is:

    1. 66 Fastback
    2. 67 Shelby
    3. 69 Mach 1
    4. 67 Fastback GT
    5. 66 Coupe ( Of which I have!)
    6. 64 1/2 Convertable
    7. 68 Shelby convertable
    8. 70 Mach 1
    9. All other 64 1/2 to 70 Fastbacks
    10. All other 64 1/2 to 70 Coupes
