Follow the link and see if this concept drawing makes you drool too, It has hints of styling from all eras of mustang body styles and I REALLY LIKE IT. [url]http://www.ponysite.de/2004Mustangb.jpg[/url]

It looks like a Shelby GT. Remember the ones that Hertz rented with the 428? 429?CJ. Sexy looking beast though.

Looks pretty retarded to me. It should do as well as Fords new-style Thunderbird, lol! BIll3508

!!GAY!! What all are you going to have to do to it so it will hang with a stock Camero of that current year? Diesel

Hey that isn't too bad.. The only problem with Ford Mustangs is they still havn't gotten the front end right yet... I liked the First ones, but they havn't had a good Front to them in 30 years... I don't know why that is???

I believe the Hertz shelbys were 66's with 289s and automatics. Big block Shelbys came out in 67 with 7 liter 428s and supposebly 427 medium risers though I think all those were dealer installed. The 428 CJ came out in 68 1/2. The hood of the 2004 mustang does remind me of a 68 shelby hood while the nose does look kind of like a 65-66. Notice how the old five spoke american racing wheels have made a comeback.

They still have to get rid of that retarded C Pillar in favor of a sleeker audi style/ferrari style pillar. There's just too much of an angle going on there.

I like it, unlikely they'll produce it, but look at the new t-bird. I think it looks ALOT better than the new mustangs, talk about gay. Dodge came out with a concept Charger, cool car, I also seen a concept photos of a Cuda, man that was sweet. Its seem to be a growing trend, the people buying concept type cars are the same people that had this style when they were younger.. Oh to be young again,

Being an avid Mustang lover since junior high I can honestly say that is by far the best looking Mustang since the 65-70's styles. It has the grille and headlights from the 65-66. The scoops on the hood are similar to the 1968 Shelby GT 500-KR. The rear of the car has similiar lines to the 69-70 'stangs. I am curious to how they did the tail lights... Definately a good looking Mustang. I purhased a 1967 Mustang GT coupe when I was 16 yrs. old. It had a 4-speed tranny and a 390-4V. While I was gone to Desert Storm my friends and family restored alot of the car and was my surprise present for returning home. The local news was there and everything. Needless to say I was glad to be back to the U S of A.

Well, the nice thing is SVT is getting kinda serious now with putting some performance into their cars. If this thing comes to life it is entirely possible that it's gonna be running something akin to a supercharged 5.4l mod motor similar to what the Lightning is running. I don't much like the 4.6l engines right now but I do like the 5.4l. In a run between a factory Z28 and a factory Ford Lightning, the Z28 is gonna have it's damned hands full. Imagine that Lightning engine being put to use in a 2004 Bullet. The only thing I personally want ford to address with their damned cars, mustangs included, is the handling. This thing better get a much improved suspension and chassis on it, that's the one tradition that has been a thorn in the side of the mustangs is a nice warm gooey pretzel chassis or atleast that's what you get if you put power into the things without beefing up the suspension and chassis.

You are right,way would a dumb ass 19 year old kid put down 25,000 30,000 on a F car when he could buy a 4 banger for 10,000. If you don't know any better you can't do any better. Stangs are still here due to the fact that they are CHEAP! BTW:This is bull sh!t: "In a run between a factory Z28 and a factory Ford Lightning, the Z28 is gonna have it's damned hands full.

I waxed a guy's but today in my s-10 blazer with only $500.00 mods The guy in the Lightning rolls down his window and tells me he was not ready and he wants to go again,I doged his ass! There is no way in hell I can take a Z but I can damn well take the Ford POS. And yes I did say S-10 BLAZER.

Uhhh - as redray and no doubt others have realized, the marking on the car says "Bullitt," not Bullet. Edited because I realized you started this thread - so obviously you know how to spell it. For a second there I was worried.

smarty_pants, I don't doubt what you are saying but that Lighting owner must be a complete freaking moron of a driver. People I know who do drive LS1 and LT1 powered Camaro Z28s and do a fair share of racing both at the track and between stop lights, have quite a bit of respect for the Ford Lightnings. Properly driven the Lightnings are low 14 second E/T capable under good conditions. That's in factory Camaro Z28 territory for sure. I gotta say, in your instance it had to be 100% driver that made the difference.

So the camaro is dead? when did/will they stop making them? call me uninformed. I guy I work with has one and always talks about how its the shit. I always tell him how much better imports are for half the money and so on. I did own a 81 mustang with the kickin' 4 cyl and an auto tranny. Oh yeah it was a dog but the price was right it ran ok. But I never could figure out why I kept having an empty radiator with no water ever found under the car drove it for a couplew weeks filling the radiator up every few days. It got 20mpg I thought maby a head gasket but i dunno I got worryed sld it and bought a nissan p/u. the new mustang looks better than the others but its still ford so it sucks and IMO most american cars suck period I like the new hyundi Tiberon (sp?) anyone else? V6 power under 20k

For the movie they used two 68 GT Mustangs with 4-speeds and 390c.i. Ford motors. The only work done to the motor was a new distributer, headers, and some reworking to the carb. Interesting article on subject: [url]http://www.terraworld.net/smoker/cars/bullitt.html[/url]

Pay $5000 more for the car and $500-$1000 more on insurance a year and then you can have a faster, uglier camaro. Face it, the camaro is DEAD. I loved 67-73 and didn't mind the IROC years, but ITS DEAD.

I always love these Ford v Chevy debates. They always begin as Mustang v Camaro. Then, the Vette guys slip in to tip the scales followed by the SVT guys (I'll be playing that part tonight) to put an end to all the shenanigans...[}:D] Specifically to the comment of 'show me when the 5.4 can do what the Z06 (Vette) can do...' Let me introduce you to the '03 Cobra, with its 390+ HP 5.4L DOHC V8 coming in at a full $15,000 cheaper than the Vette, this should give you something to be concerned about. As for the $500 Blazer mod, I'm guessing maybe nitrous & exhaust? Possibly chip? Don't compare apples to oranges. Factory v factory is what this thread seems to be about. You wanna talk mods and I can work a mustang into a 9 second demon before it costs as much as a Vette or a Viper and beat the pants off both of them. But, that's not really a fair comparison, IMHO.

I got your fair comparison,Jet chip,headers(by Edelbrock) intake and trany work still kicks the 150 on speed's ass no matter what fruit you call it. And I'm not concerned with your 03 stang,I have had my eye on it since last year and It's no better thet the Cobra R. Before you guys go and put 390+ HP in the new stang try to get the 200 something you have now to the road.
