Well, this thread is about the rear end look, so people can state that they don't like it.
I don't see any bashing here yet.
As long as no one calls the next guy an ******* solely on the fact that one prefers one model over they other etc... Everything's cool.

The threads I watch for is when it's out of context and cheap bashing ensue...
Like someone would post pics of his 2010 new exhaust and a smart *** comes along and say "Yeah but that rear end is still ugly" etc...

I've seen these comments coming from people saying this about the 2010 after they modded their 05/09 car with such taste that even a Baboon's *** looks better!! Lol.

Haha thats great and I agree completely^ Love everything about the 10s. Love all mustangs really, even if I dont really like how one looks I just think that it looks good in its own way.

I love the rear end on my '10. I always thought the rear end on the 05-09's was too plain.

As far as the retro thing goes..........IMO thank god Ford is trying to get away from that. If Ford wants the Mustang to have any kind of revelance in the future they cant just stick to the "retro" gimmick, they need to have it appeal to a younger demo.

I personally as a 33 year old am not interested in driving a car that is simply a retro ripoff from the past. I owned 2 Mustangs back in the mid-90's ('95 & '96 sn95's) but went probably 10 years (1999-2009) where I had no interest in buying a Mustang. Seems like Ford just wanted to tack hood scoops on and call it good enough.

Ford seemed to sorta followed GM's lead in that when they redesigned the Camaro it was very futuristic but still looked like what a Camaro is in peoples mind. Chrysler sorta followed the 05-09 s197 path. If you look at the sales between those 2 maybe Ford went in the right direction.

The rear is perfect with a little work.

I didn't care for the '10 rear but the prospect of an extra 112 HP makes it more palatable.

Eric - I think he means what he's done to his. That's not a b/w pic, he has painted tails and of course the blackout panel. I think it looks great on the PW color.

I think our stock antennas are nicer then that one, its too short and stubby. But I would be interested to see pic on your car when it comes in.
