I would have never known about this poll but for some reason my old link to this site takes me to a home page thing with news type articles.

I wouldn't even want to drive an 08' KR "daily". My car gets new key scratches, gravel dings and other damage daily on the TX roads. That's why I bought a lowly GT for daily driving.

If I was retired and only had to make occassional runs in a car I would DEFINITELY choose the classic! But since I would have to drive it "daily" amongst some of the worst drivers and trucks here in central TX I'd have to go with the 08.

Since I only live 4 miles from work and my lady's F-150 is the commuter vehicle on the weekends, I would definitely take the '68, no question. The '08 KR is a wonderful car, fast, capable and limited in production, but it is still a current model that can be easily replaced. I only drive about 50-80 miles a week, so even at 10mpg, the '68 would only be going through 1/2 a tank a week at most( i go through 3/4 of a tank every 11 days on my '06 GT). I think since I'm in my forties and Shelby Mustangs were not super expensive when I was a kid in the 70's, to see their value hit low six figures as the norm makes owning one nowadays extremely special(in my eyes), where as the '08 is really just a dressed up '05+ Mustang(with a bitchin drivetrain, of course-lol). To each their own, right?

You never know how much you need a second vehicle (especially one with a bed) until you sell it!!

I would pick the '68 in a heartbeat. You can buy an '08, it isnt so easy to get ahold of a classic '68 G.T. 500 anymore. Those of you complaining bout horsepower you can easily freshen up that 427 and raise the numbers. Same way with the suspension, then you would have it all.

As long as you stick to Ford's own optional equipment, anyway.

Quote:
keep in mind that this will be a daily driven model with a fully stock interior, exterior, and drivetrain. Any option from the two years is available, but that's all.

The '08 may be more comfortable and have more horses but that '68 is a magnificent piece of history. It's been turning heads for 40 years and will do so long after the '08's curves are no longer considered trendy and modern. I'd take the original any day of the week.

Agreed.

On that logic, the 08 is limited also. In 1968, I'm guessing anybody could have bought the 68 one too.

I'm not dissing your choice at all, but just saying they are both limited editions.

Since putting the 08 drivetrain under the sexy oldschool body is not one of the options, I would have to go with the 08KR.

Another vote goes to '08. I like vintage cars but I guess they are quite fragile already.

I would take the 08 because I want to be comfortable while I smoke these stupid a** ricers around here. I honestly hate civic drivers.

Default If you were to win a GT500KR...

The '68!
Add some better suspension, EFI, two more gears, brakes and twin turbos!

BTW: I am currently working on my own "Improved" '69 Sportroof with a '68 427 and twin turbos.
And my '97 Saleen 4-Valve 4.6 with the Vortech Supercharger, is quite a bit of FUN to drive with 10 pounds of boost!
