Default New Mustang meets old style !

We had a little trouble with accepting the melted look of the current Mustang so we tore one up and redesigned and refabracated the body in all sheetmetal to reflect on the classic style in blending them together, here at Auto Kraft in Lincoln, Neb. We had it on display at SEMA lots of people liked it! You can see it all over the internet under REVERSION MUSTANG look for it to hit 5.0 Magazine this spring.

hi everyone, I'm new to the forums; but I am definitely a Mustang fan and enthusiast. and I gotta say, I love the silver design concept. As for the red one, it looks too much like a classic Shelby GT500 Racer styled coupe crossed with a Mustang. The lines are all wrong for it....

Personally, I would rather see these http://i605.photobucket.com/albums/t...pa2profile.jpg http://i605.photobucket.com/albums/t...opsandhood.jpg become reality than the red one in the center

Whiskey11, let's git rid of them new fangled cell phones while we're at it, and who needs a TV hangin on the wall my old Philco still works fine, and bring back the original 5.0. Really! wheels too big? I had 18's 12 years ago. 1969 there were five engines available in a Mustang, and four were V8s. Time marches on.

I'm sorry but I don't want 19" standard wheels with optional donk wheels. The transition to larger and larger diameter wheels has added weight to an already heavy factory suspension reducing performance and ride quality all for looks. This has nothing to do with cell phones or flat screen TV's. This has to do with the fact that companies are forcing larger and larger wheels on their customers at THEIR cost (see new Camaro SS). Have you seen the cost of a decent set of 20" performance tires? 18's are plenty expensive enough and 20's are getting insane. 18"s clear Big Brake Kits with 14" rotors and 6 piston calipers. Why go bigger, especially if they decrease performance and increase the cost of competition. The last thing the Mustang needs is more weight anywhere on it.

And last I checked the Mustang was billed as the affordable performance platform. Are we sure we want $1400 sets of performance tires "as standard" and deal with the horrible ride or do we want to add in $1000 sets of tires with $1200 set of rims to save in the long run as mandatory? I don't think so and I hope Ford NEVER thinks so.

Give me a 3200-3300 lb Mustang with 420 HP, Double Wishbone front and rear suspension with some 18's or 17's and watch the car destroy others on a road course. More so than they currently do.
