Agreed; that's something I'd actually consider running.

Heck, if I went all out as Doc suggested, I'd even paint the entire silver part of the cars as squared-off panels with airbrushed rivets and some slight rust stains. even A tail number...

I mean, if you are going to recreate a classic WWII fighter, you might as well go all the way. I bet the thing would be a big hit at car shows if done down to every nitty-gritty detail. Hell, like an ejection handle for the seat release lever, a throttle control for the gear-shift, New aircraft themed gauges... ect.

Would be awesome.

That's a really good looking car.

And who says that's not where the inspiration for the name came from? I know it's often debated, but I'll stick with it being named after the P-51.

John Najjar, the original designer of the Mustang I Prototype, is said to have named the vehicle after the legendary P-51 Mustang fighter plane from World War II. Although this is the "official" story, many people believe the Mustang was named after the horse. In fact, Lee Iacocca is said to have stated this several times while discussing the vehicle in interviews. In an interview conducted by Brad Barnett and The Mustang Source in 2004, John Najjar told Barnett he named the car after the airplane. However, his boss at Ford, R. H. Maguire, didn't want an airplane emblem to appear on the car, so they settled on the horse instead.
