I like the gold stripe better, but you can get a 5speed and no rental abuse.

I like it, but I'd still rather get a standard GT and the FRPP packs, lose the Shelby grill and hood pins and stripes, and save some bucks. What kills me, though, is the uproar over it just being 25hp over the stocker...the real benefit to this new setup is the handling improvement and how it lets you exploit the power better.

The white one looks amazing with the silver stripes. Too bad they are vinyl.

Looks ok. I like the grill and hood pins, and stripes are always cool with me. Only 25hp huh? Kinda disappointing, but if it really does put it "down" better, then I say it's a good thing. Now, if only Ford would bring the cowl hood back...


On a side note, anyone seen the new Saleen hoods? I saw one at the dealer today, and thought to myself, "Wow that reminds me of the old IROC-Z Camaros..." Not a bad thing at all! I still don't really like the overall look of the car. It seems to have gotten too big once again. If I was a mustang fanboy(which most folks on here know I most certainly am NOT...) I'd be prepared for another Mustang II-style debacle after this body style plays itself out in about five to 8 years. I kinda liked the Mustang II... it looked really sporty with the ground effects on it.

Not digging the wheels. Let's try something new please. As for the Mustang II comment I believe that most people choose to forget those years and pretend that it never happened.

Disagree on two counts. 1st, I think it's Cragar, far as I remember. And the style is "S/S". I had them on an old Nova, and unless my wires are crossed, that's what they were called when I bought a new set of them. Also, those wheels look friggin GOOD on just about any old pony car. Not "muscle", but pony cars, such as the early 'Stangs, Nova's, Roadrunner's, Chevy II's, etc.

Also, the only wheels that ONLY look good on a Mustang are the old Stang wheels and the old 10-spoke Shelby wheels...

Stang's:



10 spokes:



And for good measure, the Cragar S/S wheel:



Damn, that's a great looking wheel. Well, before everybody and their brother copied the design.

i meant of current cars. slap those on a new camaro or something...they look like crap. I know they're popular for lots of classic muscle cars. and i'm sorry i spelled it wrong.

The first wheel is off of a 67 and those kind are called style steel wheels. The Shelby wheels are nice . I agree the Cragar style wheels are on everything it seems like.
