Default Spotted: 05 Mustang conv.

Not due out till spring, we saw these cars being driven by factory reps. What do you think?

I see they brought back that yucky old green color. Some things that were popular in the old days are retired for a reason. LEAVE IT THAT WAY!

I have seen a few coupes and 1 convertible here in the DC area. Suprisingly, they are growing on me. Couple that with the Ford 500 and the Mercury Montego having AWD as available options, FMC is really stepping up to the plate. I believe the 500 and the new Mustang have similar frames, which might lead to an AWD Mustang someday. This would really give Ford an edge in the modern day muscle car handling where they have traditionally lacked (in stock form). GM is gonna feel the burn... this coming from a tried and true GM fan.

AWD is the answer! Now-a-days if you can't put the power to the ground, your getting your doors blown off from street light to street light by a truck!! I know because I run all sorts of cars with more hp than my SS and leave most of them standing spinning their wheels! Except the AWD cars!

And I have to see one of those with the top down before I can pass judgment!

They just loose something by eliminating the fastback look. Not sure about the ragtops.
