Does anyone else think this is an awesome car !!!
They have changed this car so many times, each year it looks "SO" different.
They were selling so many of the last years modle, im sure they'll sell more this year!
I like the front end, but I can't stand the rear end. It just doesn't seem to fit the retro look of the front. The front looks like it's from the 1960's, and the rear looks like it's from 2020.
I quite like the look of the '05 "Mustange"....I think it brings back the purposefull looks of the classic 60's version, lets face it, the current version has never looked as menacing as the upcoming edition :hi:
the back reminds me of buick taillights :puke: they need to resize those
the front looks awesome tho
I agree that those rear lights could do with being scaled down a bit..I think they look a bit out of place on that car for some reason :ohcrap:
The GT-R version makes this one look so unbelievably ugly.. I prefer the more agressive looks of the GT-R and the fact it has a fully stripped out interior with roll cage and bucket seats.. :drool: :mrgreen: :drool: :mrgreen: :drool:
funny how they call it GT-R, taking a cue from nissan. :mrgreen:
Actually Ford made the GT-R Mustang back in the late 60's, nissan didn't make the GT-R (R32) skyline untill '88..! :thumbs:
well in that case, why the long gap. i havent heard of a gt-r mustang in the 90s.
Because Ford is digging up history.. Started it with the GT, then the GT-R mustang and now the new AC Cobra..
And it's all for the good as far as I'm concerned :thumbs:
Indeed it is.. I have to say i do like their new cars.. The new F150 included...! It is one PHATT truck..!!
yeah im digging the new fords...my dad says he might keep our BMW for a year and then trade it in for a new Mustang. :drool:
God damn.. How many cars do you have now? 50/60?
They do look excellent, and I'm sure they will sell quite well.
Sorry, I haven't read much into them though... :ohcrap:
try 6 :laughing:
I fully agree with you on this one.
I agree the back needs work, but the whole car Really looks amazing !!

And i personaly think the back looks amazing, the lights are rather larger than any other mustang, but it looks new and awesome !
Edit by Cliffy: Dustin, that last picture was far too big, I've edited your post so that you have to click on the links to see the pictures..hope ya dont mind! :thumbs:
The vents are very much from the early 70's stang, it does seem like they
have joined up many years. I like the back end but worry about how much a
conversion would cost for SVA regs, but i supose a limo job could be done
and the indicators cut into the rear bumper.
what sort of selection of engines are they offering i would asume it would be a version of the 4.6 V8 and the V6. They dont ussally do a total rework of the body and the engine in the same year. I guess they might add some of the SVT and Mach 1 developments to the lower spec cars but if they are launching a GT R then it is unlikely as there wouldnt be much distinction.
If only there wernt such high import duties on cars then we might be able to afford to have one, couldnt move it as the fuel would be unbearable but look at it in its nice shinnyness. How much are they selling the GT R for? ~$38??
The depressing bit would be:
Cost in USA = $38,000
Import tax 22% = $46,360
Shipping and dock fees = $48,500
SVA complience = $49,800
Value Added Tax = $58,515
Registration = $58,585
MOT = $58,655
Road fund licence = $58,980
So now we have paid $19980 to the goverment and a bit for export and labour we get to drive our nice new car.
but and this is a BIG BUT!
Lets say it averages 23 mpg(imperial) and travel 15000 miles in the first year that means we use about 2960 litres of fuel in that year they take ~13pence a litre in VAT (sales tax) ($0.23/ litre or $0.86/ us gallon) an then 47.1 pence a litre road duty ($3.12/ us gallon) so then we pay £1780 in fuel duty and VAT. Thats $3115 to the govement to drive our 15000 miles.
Then say your 25 with 4 years no claims, living in the suburbs, thats £2500 to insure it which means the goverment take 5% insurance premium duty which is another £125 = $220
In the first year thats $23215 in tax! Imagine that! and thats before any depriciation, maintaince, insurance etc.
You know cliffy i think we should rebel!
You guys crack me up! You're using the STYLING exercise to base your
opinions on! The actual '05 mustang is already rolling around!
The taillights on the ACTUAL car are much smaller, just like the ones on the '65-70 versions.
Persoanlly, I LOVE the '05 Mustang, and I wish I could afford a new car right now.

And a shytpile of high res images of both the GT and the V6 versions:
very interesting...for the hockey games, shouldn't they change the mustang
comm. to the new one ?? not the last years modle ?
Ford has done a good job overall. !
You're not going to see the commercials for the new ones yet, as they won't get to the dealers until the end of the summer. The last of the '04s rolled off the assembly line last month. In fact, the last of the '04s were teh last mustangs to be built at the factory in Dearborn that made very mustang since teh first of the '64 1/2 models, and was Fords oldest plant. The new Mustangs will be built at the plant Ford built with Mazda in Flat Rock (that had built MX6s and Probes before). It's a much more modern plant, so assembly quality should be way up. Since the last of the '04s just came off the line, the ads for them will still be around, in order to sell them. In fact, it's predicted that there will be a shortage of '04 Mustangs before the '05s hit the dealers.
With the new tail lights, I actually like the LOOK of it. :thumbs:
there you go, those taillights are much better. now it looks perfect. shiny red for me please!
I agree, with those tail lights it looks alot nicer, it looks far more complete now! :thumbs:
How the hell were those too big?
Sell off the old 640 X 480, 14 inch monitor and 14.4 modem, and join the real world... :laughing:
lol, try looking at em with a 1400x1050 resolution, then you'll want to :guns: those lights.
I thought he was on about me 'linking' the pics he displayed...in which case...at least one of them was biiiiiiig big lol :hi:
if america had a james bond type, he'd drive that.
The pics I linked to in the dieselstation link were biiiig. The other ones
were no bigger than anything else I've posted here since I got here, and
most were smaller...
Sorry, what are your limits now?
America will never have james bond, the goverment would need tact first!
Take a look at the 'top ten production cars' thread to see what is a nice size piccy, your pics in this thread weren't excessively big, infact, only one was too big, but It wouldn't have looked right if I only linked one of them :thumbs:
I can barely see the pics in the "top ten" thread. They look like the tiny thumbnails Google makes before you click on them...
Who here is still on a 28.8k dial-up? :mrgreen:
We dont have dial up at work, but due to there being hundreds of computers linked to one or two servers, things get extreamly slow lol...I guess that's why I seem harsh when I edited your post.....sorry lol :thumbs:
I'm on 28.8, but I don't mind large pictures.
i'm on cable. :rock:
:sleep: :sleep: Im on a T3 :mrgreen:
Yea rite....i got dsl....not as fast :ohcrap: ...o well :fu:
Nice sig Importluva. :thumbs:
The site is the limiting factor. i find it seems to run slow.
He he he.. I got Broad Band.. My mate has T3 though.. Bastard.. :cussing: :hi: :orglaugh:
thanks man. :smoke:
Over all this car is very nice, and I'm sure will be seeing alot around
PS. this is my alltime favorite car
other than riced cars that is........
Ferrari.....was bloody big....now reasonable (http://www.redbrick.dcu.ie/~kane/motorshow/Ferrari-360-yellow.jpg)
That pic big enough? Where do you live to be sure you will see "alot" around...?
I really dont get some people, here I am explaining why I link you all to huge pics...then he turns up with that monster! :banghead:
He he he.. Big sigs too!!! :hi:
Oh yes....they aint good either :ohcrap:
Yes, i remember both you and Bav having to tell me.. See i reduced the pic size 4 Bav but then u came along and told me to further reduce it!!! :screwy: :ohcrap: :thumbs:
yea, they forced me to reduce to what it is now. sucks, but i suppose it could have been worse. btw, im lovin those wheels on the evo, BBS?
I live in Vancouver island
And I see many different cars, so thats why I was saying I'll be seeing many of the new 05 Stangs. None yet, but i guess their not on the market as I was told..
I don't know.. Thats what i thought and I tried to find out before when i first got the pic but to little luck.. Also i tried to focus in on the pic to see a name but it is not of high enough resolution to be able to see anything.. :ticking: I'll keep looking i guess.. NM, your sig is still pretty cool!! :thumbs:
LOL...Blimey mate, it must have been massive :laughing:
So, for now on..I'll watch how big my pic's are !! :mrgreen:
btw only 2 of your plugs fire
Thats why he's here.. He needs help getting them fixed..lol.. Well, actully
you can't see No.2 spark plug due to it being covered by the wing.. But
your definatly correct about the no.3 cylinder... :thumbs:
P.S. How bored were you to realise that?? :hi: :orglaugh:
i just copied the pic from this dude at nasioc :mrgreen: , didnt really bother editing it. ill see if i can fix it.
Well i am asuming hes got a distribution problem, and most of the time it knocks out consecutive cycliders! lol
This is what my cavalier almost looks like, exept Mines Green.. i'd like it
I'm giving it to my sister next year, and i have no idea what im going to get.
