    Well, probably still a foxbody 5.0, but as far as newer cars go, yeah, the 03-04 cobra. **** the GT500. **** this new muscle car era. All car makers are ****ing up.

    Im really not feelin this retro car bull****. Its a novelty that quickly wears off. Its so typical of american automakers for the most part, theyre all living in the past with these huge v8's that get horrible mileage, and these stupid exteriors (with the exception of the camaro concept, but you and i know we will never see production looking that good out of one of our companies). Youd thinnk they would wanna save their a** from foreign competition by stepping up to the plate and using high tech designs and engineering. Just look at our interiors compared to foreign car interiors. Ill never buy asian, but thats not stopping the rest of the population.

    i dont know if anyone was watching, but the first 07 cobra sold on barrett jackson on saturday for $600,000.

    mind you, all that money went to charity.

    but the buyer got the first cobra to roll off the line, got a matching tool chest with the same vin number as the car to go with it, the sun visor was signed by both ford and shelby, the buyer gets to see the car assembled in from of him, and the car with be built completely to the buyers specs.

    damn rich people.. :crazy:

    Damn. I wish I had enough money to wipe my ass with flaming $100 bills.

    Not to mention the money to treat my ass burns. :mad:

    Please do change the whole car performance wise. Show us what is supposed to be. And do some weight reduction on that fat ass.

    I honestly don't think it looks terrible and if I had the money you sure as hell bet I'd be owning one. I can't wait to see what the aftermarket does to a boosted 5.4. So much potential is under that car's hood.

    I wanted one so bad when the design first came out, now i would get a used ZO6 and F/I it, or a terminater and upgrade the F/I.

    First of all they should have put an engine in there that was over 500 HP. Seconds that is one heavy car. All that power it has is going to be used to drag its heavy ass around. The car it self could be so much faster as fo styling looks good to me I'm just mad about the performance aspects of the car. But that is just my opinion and no one has to agree with me.

    True but my point is they should have done a better job. After all it is a performance vehicle.
