    I think it's Schweeet and I haven't even seen a good pic of one yet!!!

    I'm Full-Blooded Chevy, but I love the new Mustang body style, and if I could get one with say 390hp like the Cobra, I might 'Swing the other Way'... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I'm still pissed about GM Killing the F-Body!

    It'll still be way cheaper to get 400hp out of my '95 LT1 than to buy a new 'Vette or Cobra though. So for now I'm still 'All Chevy, All the Time'... /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Mustangs are still gonna be slow. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
    Although with 8.5:1 those things are begging for some boost! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif 9+ lbs should really wake those things up! /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    i think ford will build it, in fact i know they will, allthough production models will have a slightly taller roofline than what you're seeing there.. also, we got our first 2004 Mystichrome Cobra in on monday.. check them out, they're sweet

    i hope that at least the big three go back to the muscle car styling with the new models, would be better than all the junk they been putting out since then, for the most part

    Man, I am not nice to concept cars... Looks like they borrowed the S10 pickup's grille/headlights... At least they didn't make the body overly dramatic. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    Mustangs never really impressed me, though. Maybe the 80's models, when you could mistake one for a capri if you were sloppy... Just cause I beat one in a reverse race with my dodge, I have a soft spot for them...
