    Sneak Peek at the 2005 Ford Mustang


    Im a huge Mustang fan and I know Jar is too and if you're not we dont give a **** so dont post "Pony's suck" or **** like that here, feel free to PM that comment....to yourself and start a convo.

    Anyways, here's a sneak peek at the 2005 Edition. I like it all but maybe the front grill, not really Mustang like...

    I REALLY like the look of the Mustang. Even though you see the new style body over and over because there are so many, it still turns my head almost EVERY time.

    Just a GREAT looking car.

    In my opinon I don't like the 2005 model as much as the current one, but then again I haven't seen it up close.


    BTW this is coming from a Viper owner.

    Just so nobody thinks I am picking on Ford, I think Dodge screwed up with the look of the 2003 Viper.

    And believe it or not no one has actually received their 2003 Vipers yet because of not passing emissions in CA.

    like it or not, one of the few cars out there that actually has some personality. i kinda like that whole front end i think it makes it look pretty bad...i'm more a 4x4 kinda guy tho.

    That Mustang front end looks a lot like the retro T-Bird that Ford recently introduced. In fact, the whole body is pretty similar.

    bleh; I like Mustangs as a whole; especially my dad's red 67 convert; but damn; you'd think Ford had some FORWARD thinking going... retro designs never work... the new thunderbird is a case in point... only a couple of people like them and they don't sell for ****

    i'll take the new STi or Lancer Evolution

    yeah and wait until Toyota has their V10 supercar come out... it'll prolly be making as much power N/A as the Ford truck (ahem i mean GT40) makes with a supercharger... not gonna go into handling; there's not really an american car that handles well except for the Z06; and even its not THAT great

    i find no attrativeness to any supercharged car... all it says to me is (no high-end power)... i'd rather take a little less torque on the bottom end and a lot more top-end with a turbo

    and everyone was raving about the new 4v supercharged Cobra... WHOOPS the thing doesn't exist anymore because of Ford's great quality control team

    Working for a performance shop that has produced fast domestics and imports, ill agree with Bean. Nothing is as fun as the top end pull of a car with a big turbo. Too many driveablilty issues with a big block car , too much low end, under 60 mph your all over the road unless you plan to run slicks all the time.

    Why not have both low end tourque AND top end turbo.

    Why do you say a super charged car has no high end power?

    When you say no American car handles well are you talking about road courses?

    Crower, I think he was just making a stereotypical statement about IRS vs live axle. But with coilovers and yada yada yada, a live axle car can do the twisties just as well as an import. Its all about $$$ .

    i'm saying almost all american cars don't handle well with exception of the Z06... and even its not in the Top 5 of the best handling cars for under $100k

    solid-axle vs IRS... i don't care what the hell you do to a solid-axle, if you do equivalent work to a IRS car; the IRS will ALWAYS handle better...its not about money; they are geared towards TWO different things... american suspension is geared towards launching hard and running good ETs... import; and mainly Jap suspension is for turning

    never said you can't have low-end torque and high-end power...

    its just that the dynochart you just submitted is kinda funny... for THAT much torque... an equivalent Supra or Skyline would be making 800rwhp instead of a paltry 693 the powerband would also be much fatter...

    that also looks like a Hennessey chart... John Hennessey is a theif go over to corvetteforums.com and lookup how much of a crook he is

    That is a twin turbo if you prefer super charger how about:


    http://www.btrviper.com/byron_heads_cam_dyno-uc.jpg

    I believe there is enough low end tourque AND top end.

    BTW this is my freinds car so it does exist.

    Same color as mine except his has the white strips and is a GTS

    Yea but if you can afford a Viper you can afford 2 Supras if you can oly afford a Supra the Viper is not even an option.

    YES I know Hennesy is a theif I KNOW him.

    You said "i find no attrativeness to any supercharged car... all it says to me is (no high-end power)... " I posted a dyno for you to show you do have highend power with a super charged car.

    By what standards do you say top 5 handling cars under $100,000???


    DAMN we hijacked this thread and I can already see where it is headed.

    Do you like that Mustang better than the current look?

    I like them both but for different reasons.

    I can duct tape a rocket engine to a turd but it would still be a turd.

    What factors are you using in your top 5 handling cars under $100,000??

    You don't know about road racing American cars VS. foreign?

    You may not realize it but US cars are doing MUCH better than in past years. We are making GREAT progress.

    Same here man, I think they're almost starting over with the new look and trying to the futuristic approach, but this is supposed to be the most expensive model yet....but about $10-$12K brand new Ouch.

    LOL

    thats hardly a turd nicer than any ford ever made; thats for sure... but thats the same **** i've been saying about Vipers for a long time

    its nice having a luxury car that handles well and makes over 1000rwhp and you're lying to yourself if you think this car is a turd; because that makes the viper you own a serious amoeba ON a turd

    top 5 handling cars for under $100k

    I'll just list the top 5 in no particular order; and these are any cars made within the past 10 years... because these cars handle so well its hard to make too much of a judgement
    as far as handling; i mean the way a car handles; not just total numbers because both you and i know that numbers DO lie about a car sometimes... the newest addition on this list runs relatively lower slaloms than the others; but thats mainly due to its ****ty stock tires... throw some decent tires of the same width on it and its slalom jumps from 66mph to 72mph... that car being the WRX...
    two new cars to be added to the list when they come out are the STi and EVO 8

    Ferrari 360
    Mazda RX-7
    Toyota Supra
    Mazdaspeed Protege' (only FWD car on this list, don't believe me? go pick up the review of SCC when they tested it)
    Subaru WRX

    below this is the Z06, the E46 M3, the 355 Ferrari, the newest Cobra R, and the Viper (although it doesn't handle all that well; its mainly just the 335 tire getting an assload of grip; which helps; but won't make up for the sloppy suspension)

    i know you know a lot of this is smacktalk

    EDIT: wait a sec, just realized, the 360 and 355 aren't sub-$100k...

    alright you got me; Z06 is up there in the top 5 ... add the NSX in the other little group

    Mazda RX-7
    Toyota Supra
    Mazdaspeed Protege' (only FWD car on this list, don't believe me? go pick up the review of SCC when they tested it)
    Subaru WRX

    below this is the Z06, the E46 M3, the 355 Ferrari, the newest Cobra R, and the Viper (although it doesn't handle all that well; its mainly just the 335 tire getting an assload of grip; which helps; but won't make up for the sloppy suspension)

    i know you know a lot of this is smacktalk
    HA HA yea bro but the differance is I OWN the car we are talking about and you own what ?????????????????????


    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.

    BTW nice Avatar.

    You make it to Florida I will give you the oportunity to actually ride in a car that IS capable of doing the speed you show instead of you just living it as a fantasy on a internet forum.

    As far as your list of cars I've seen my freind beat EVERYONE of them more than once on a road course.

    INCLUDING the ones that cost OVER $100,000 for the LIFE of me I can't recall seeing a SINGLE rice burner/Lexus out there.

    If you want his website PM me and you can see for yourself.


    HMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder why that is, OH that's right cause they would get their asses handed to em.

    OK now I am REALLY feeling bad about hijacking Y/J's thread so you post as much as you want I gotta go.

    BTW Y/J I LOVE The looks of the Mustang as I said before.


    AND I think it is pretty ****TY after he asked people NOT to flame the Mustand some guys went ahead and did it.


    If I had it to do over I wouldn't have started talking off subject here.

    See ya.
