Seriously, that Falcon looks like a straight rip-off of that VT Commodore.

that's what a pretty standard XR8 kit on it.

What do you mean if I say so? They look identicle, open your freakin' eyes, I think Holden could win a design law-suit based on those two cars.

I'm not sure why you showed me what the old ones looked like. That has no bearing on what the new ones look like. The old ones are ugly as sin though, they look a little like a Ford Taurus... which are one of the ugliest cars on the road IMO.

You'd be right. The older model design was foisted on Ford Oz by the dicks in Detroit. It resulted in a major plummet in sales:- something they are still trying to reverse by squaring it up a bit and focusing on engines.

the only thing I see the same between the Falcon and the Holden is number of doors and wheels. They are both basic sedans. Fronts and rears are comlletely different, roofline and side window treatmetns are completely differnt, etc.

That's like saying a Fleetwood Brougham and a Town Car look identical. or like saying Halle Berry and Beyonce look identical.

First Mustang worth buying since the Mustang I left us in '73 IMO. The exterior is actually attractive again, the interior looks just fine (finally)...although they still are cheap interior happy in areas (coughCHEAPFORDcough).

As for performance I can say the GT needed the 40hp boost to 300hp as family cars were catching up to the 99-04 GT. Handling seems to improved a little, not a lot as expected and the biggest disappointment to me is the weight which increased 100lbs to 3450lbs (on the GT deluxe coupe) and it was supposedly supposed to decrease (yet it still weighs over 300lbs less than a GTO... take note GM). The V6 model is still not worthy of any praise from me. Basically it's still a slow POS as they didnt really improve anything power wise by just dropping in the Explorer/Ranger 4.0L V6 with a whopping 210hp...Brings me to my next point. Why cant Ford get ANY damn power out of this 4.0L V6? Nissan's Frontier has a 4.0L V6 pulling 265hp and 284tq while Toyota's Tacoma is pulling 245hp with it's 4.0L V6. I thought Ford would at least put an engine in the V6 stang to bring it in the 240hp range. Like possibly take Hondas 3.5L V6 (w/250hp) like GM did and put it in there.
