I'd love for the new stangs to have t-tops...or at least a sunroof.
Just because they come with t-tops doesn't mean you all need to get them. You don't want them, get yours with a normal roof then.
Uhh yeah and this is a chevy forum. oh wait no. The camaro is dead. And when was the last timeyou heard of a large write in campaign to Ford for t-tops.Z28x said:100% of Corvette coupes have a Targa top
in 2001 66% of Camaros coupes were bought with T-Tops

SVTdriver said:But there are other issues involved than just simply cutting the roof out. Crash tests and such. And yes the 4th gen mustang will be dead sort of. Actually more retired than put out of everyones misery. Which is exactly what happened to the outdated camaro. Don't get me wrong. I respect the f-bodies. But Chevy killed them. The f-body hadn't had a redesign since 93. That was way too long.
SVTdriver said:But Chevy doesn't have the guts to do anything exciting. Just look at all the concepts that it creates. And then what happens when the car gets into production.
SVTdriver said:And not to be mean but the monte and the impala will then compete against the GTO. Which means chevy will be doing something similar to the f-body. Why does Chevy need 3 cars to compete against Ford?
Z28x said:Hopfully Ford can make a business case for some sort of open roof Mustang coupe.
Z28x said:THe Monte and Impala SS will still be FWD but have V8s, The GTO is RWD They won't compete. Ford gave up on it's FWD V8 car back in 2000 (Taurus SHO). Ford won't have a SRT-4 like car in 2004 but Chevy will. For the '05 Model year the only thing Ford will have is a 300HP Mustang and a 500HP $150,000 car going up against a 500HP and lighter $55,000-$59K Z06.
I'm not going argue Ford vs. Chevy, we could do it all day. Both Companies will have some great performance products out in the next few years. Both Ford and Chevy fans should be happy. Don't forget Chevy and Ford aren't only competing against each other, but Dodge and the Imports.
THe point of this thread is that a lot of people do like having open roof cars, One complaint that GTO buyers have is that you can't get the '04 with a sunroof, but you can on the Holden Monaros. I personally know a lot of Stang owners that wish the current Gen came with a sunroof. Just because you don't want a sunfoof/moonroof/t-tops/targa top on your Mustang doesn't mean no one does. I wouldn't buy a convertable Stang but that doesn't mean I think Ford shouldn't offer one.
