I've got my flame suit on so have at me, I just hope that some of this hype from a potential buyer will enlighten them to make some changes before it goes into production
No flames from me here - I have always maintained that the car should have been much more retro from the very outset, and a bare bones Hi- Po model like a '67-'68 L78-type deal available for those who can't afford (and don't want the 6 disk changer/heated mirrors/powered moon roof/version) but want to beat the snot out of the Cobras that are out there now.
I like the way Ford is back-dooring the kits to hop their cars up as well - but they invented that sort of stuff with the early - to mid 90's Mustangs and that is why in my opinion the Camaro line bit the dust soon after. Maybe history is about to repeat itself over again in only a decade!
The new car just doesn't do it for me and I hate to admit it but the Mustang is the best looking of the bunch so far (no I'm not a Ford fan in the least, just giving credit where due) and IMHO Ford won't get any challenge from the GM stable in this round. The gate has been wide open for a couple of years now but unlike 40 years ago I don't think GM has the goods to make up for the lost time and market with what they are showing here.
I have my asbestos undershorts on now too... so light it up! Randy
