I'll take a 1968 they are both beautiful and I was born that year, plus It is probably harder to find a 1968 then a 2008.

The 08 for sure! I love the classics, but you cannot get stuff in a classic like you can in a new car!

When you compare the two, there's a world of difference. Modern technology vs original innovation. No power windows sux, but damn man... Driving around in a 1968 classic mustang as a daily driver with no cats and and layers of laquer is just raw. You'll break so many more necks driving that car than you will with the 08. And it's not just a question of looks, cuz 300+ HP is still respectable. Anyways I'm not gonna crit everyone with a page of why I'd kill someone for either one of those cars lol. 68 all the way!

While I'd love driving the classic that the '68 is, I'd much prefer an 08' in the long term.
