    Okay what the hell happened? :eek: :confused:
    The concept pics had me thinking this thing was going to be absolutely beautiful. I was already planning to start setting money aside to purchase one in a few years. But Ford has really ****ed the football on this one. The hood looks like ****, the stripes are all wrong, and the ass-end is hideous. What happened to the concept? How does Ford go from something with such high potential to this ugly piece of dreck?

    After looking at the front view it a bit, I think the new Shelby looks like a dodge truck from the front. Of course I can't blame Shelby, I dout if he's designing anything anymore. Ford's just riding on his name sake legacy to crank up the profits.;)

    well it might be that the drop scoops are been saved for the new cobra:confused: and the cool stuf from this concept is been added to the new cobra as well. if so i think they are doing what they are suppose to do , make people apeal to their top of the line stang(the cobra) ,the gt500 is not .

    I still think that all s197 Mustangs are a waste. They are too heavy, despite the extra power. What the HELL is the point of 475 bhp if the ****er is 600 lbs heavier than the Terminator? I'm willing to bet that at best it will only be .2 quicker, and maybe 2 mph faster.

    Give me SN95 all day. :thumbup:

    I wanna get a 98 Chrome Yellow vert with my sign on bonus. I intend to KB it and do a t56. I want a fast, nice looking cruiser rather than an all out racer. The other sn95 I was thinking about was a Terminator, but I don't wanna spend that much.

    I'm trying but I just can't feel this design. I feel the gt more than this suposedly cobra. It's just not working. I may just look for a 04 cobra or something when I upgrade because this "new" style isn't that attractive to me.:(
