    I won't tell you how much I don't like Fords, or most American cars in general, but I will say anything is an improvement with the recent Mustangs. At least it's an interesting design this time. The concept looks quite good for what it is. Will be interesting to see them on the road though, that's the real test.

    Was out driving on a 3 lane highway.

    End up at a Looooooong stop light and started looking around There was a Porshe Carrara a Supra with the wing ground effects etc. and a Mustang GT. I gotta say ALL the cars looked REALLY nice to me.

    Heh you just stepped on the wrong foot bro

    My 300zx Twinturbo back when it had the mods on it was running 110mph traps; beat several OLD 400hp Vipers with ease... a couple C5s, etc... Z06s weren't around at the time...

    I've been 190 before... and yes i've been in a car capable of 215 before so don't gimme that **** hell i took my Z up around 170 when running a NSX on the I165 connector

    I've been down the 1/4 more times than i can count; in my 300zx and in my Talon TSI AWD, my RX-7 T2, and my current ride, a Lexus SC300 5-speed

    been on a road course? never... been at an autocross? again, more times than i can count... mainly in my Talon and T2

    As for you; you seem to be the typical viper owner that gets his ass handed to him by a cheap-ass $20k Supra with $1.5k in boltons

    Don't think I actually care that you own a Viper; its a piece of **** clown shoe with big tires... ANYONE can throw a gigantic motor at a relatively lightweight chassis and make a car fast...

    did i tell you about my current project? a first gen RX-7 with a 2jz-gte in it? 500rwhp in a 2200lb car is gonna be hella faster than Viper... especially if i can also swing in a 4link rear... gonna be NASTY on the go and up top
    and i don't care if its ugly as hell; for a pimp ride i'll take my SC3 or sell it and get a LS430

    and just so you know; i hate being called a keyboard racer by someone that think's they are the **** because they own an expensive muscle car

    Oh and just so you know... I don't have a Playstation of any sort; nor an Xbox... i can't quite learn the **** i know from playing games on consoles then can i? Hmmmmm musta learned them from somewhere else?

    Oh and that's nice that your friend beats them all. On a roadcourse? on an autocross? (yes they ARE different)...
    He ever ran a respectable driver with a FD and coilovers and beat him? BULL****

    as for hijacking the thread...

    YJ! I think the blue one looks nice; but the rest have got to go... I will always have a soft place in my heart for an older Mach 1 stang... of course the ridiculous current rendition is utter **** i think

    Yea that's what I thought.

    Let me guess you are a key board racer right?

    How many times you been down the quarter mile track???

    how many times on the road course?????

    So let me guess you get on your Play Station II or your Xbox and build your dream car right?????????

    AH and yet another key board racer.

    After studying the design more, I should restate my opinion, as it's growing on me quite a bit. I'm glad they're trying some different things and still using some old styling cues. As long as the fit and finish and overall build quality is there (talking interior included folks, although they have been improving in recent years), it should be an interesting car and a pretty good value. Give us some engine specs when you come across them YJ, curious myself.

    Hey Bean you an owner of a Subaru?  We do autocrosses with mustangs and vettes and they lose a large amount of the time to Subaru's as the all wheel drive kills them in the corners.  It is fun to drift through the corners.  All four wheel spinning while driving sideways.

    Retro Mercedes SL?


    The first pic Kinda looks like a 90's era Mercedes SL..........bout time the America Car Manufacturers figured out what the European Manufacturers have known for years. My estimate is that german/euro autos are STILL about 5-7 years ahead of ANY american car, which is better than what it used to be. I'll take quality (with the higher price) over a ford/chevy. Now, if GM/Ford could catch up in the quality dept., hands down buy American when it comes to autos.

    Now...I'm not a mustang fan AT ALL....

    but i've got to admit, that second set of pics (specifically the blue one) kinda makes me want to buy one just to have it.  It looks clean, agressive lines and overall...just looks fast..

    Bravo to Ford (first time I've said that in my life)

     

    LG.
