hmm, alot of 05 haters. i'm just glad ford put out a stang that doesnt look like a space ship. If anyone is going to trash the 05 look it should be the old fox-body owners. I'm glad i waited 10 years to get my first stang, but if i would have bought an 04 i'd be pissed as all hell over the body change that put my car to shame. i'd also be angry when i googled the 1/4 mile times for the 05 stang GT stock vs the 04 stock.

Unfortunately...I'm going to join the haters club. I think the 99+ is 10X better looking. I really liked the concept of the '05, but they just ruined it. Dumbasses.
i believe that the 2005 mustang is a kick-*** car. i seen one yesterday in a parking lot near my school, and it was there today. i feel in love with the 2005 when i 1st saw one at the 2004 philadelphia auto show. my fav. model mustangs are the 1965/66/67/68,1993,2004 and the 2005 model. i think ford did an amazing job on the 05.

when i saw it up close my first reaction is that it is a big car, it heavier, taller, wider, longer, and higher off the ground. My opinion is that if u always wanted a 67 stang then its the car for you but all they did is modernize an older model which i think is kinda cheating. I always thought when u start from skratch u start w/ nothing, but in this case they were constantly looking at the very early gen. But ill admit that i turn my head when i see one @ least for now.

yea i agree, when i 1st saw it at the 2004 auto show, i thought it looked wide and heavy. but, thats what the old muscle cars where. they where big,heavy and long, but they still could haul *** and blow the doors off of any other car. like when i 1st saw the dodge magnum r/t, i thought they where an ugly car, but when i seen one in person, i feel in love with it. same as the chrysler 300c with the hemi. i like any car that looks cool, and has a big powerful engine. i think that ford should make a mach 1 model out of the 2005 model, and offer a big hood scoop on the 2005's. i herd that the mustang is going to get another 100 horsepower in fall 2005. a convertible is also on the way.

THe 98 body style is my least favorite mustang. I think a crown vic has more syling than that car!

I realy like the appeance of of the 99-04 stang, but I think the interior is awful and qaulity is lacking.

Right now I'm torn on the appeance of the 05 stang. I saw one and I hated then I saw another one and I really liked it. Both were v6.

I thing we all can agree that the interior on the 05 ain't bad at all and qaulity is up.
The more of the 05 I see, the more I like it. I think this is a car that really grows on you.
