Where the 2011 5.0 ranks in the history of mustangs??
I am now wondering; if Ford continues the trend of honoring the classic '60s body styling, I hope they don't make the 2014 rear end so flay with so much steetmetal and too little lights. Well, if you have so much more sheetmetal on the rear, I do hope thy are much more stylish with it. To me, the 1969 Mach and similar 'Stangs of old had a very stylisk rear end even though there was alot of sheet metal.
The '10+ rear end is more refined to me, more elegant. It could still be improved (at least to my own liking). I just wish the lights did not have so much damn sheet metal to the left and right side.
Hey we agree on something. I don't dislike the 05-09 rear end but it's just plain looking and I prefer some curves. While the 05-09 payed homage to the original design the 10+ does a nice job of moving the design forward. Short of the 69-70 cars I think the new design is the best looking Mustang IMO.
I think the 67 and 68 Mustang fastbacks were the best looking. That being said a good case could be made for any Mustang from 64 1/2-70. That was the era that made the Mustang name what it has been for nearly 50 years. The 2011 5.0 may be the car that redefines the breed, and allows it to go another 50.
