2010... I'm with Luis and Gary. Mehh..

Well there's the secret release, guess there's no reason to go to the unveiling tomorrow night or the LA autoshow now.

Don't get me wrong, it looks nice, as a new facelift should. But, it's not a huge departure from what we already have. It's not like a new platform or anything.

Yeah, if you have to choose one, go for the 281 show and POTR cruise.

I think someone on TMS called it a new edge s197, though I can't remember who now.

Looks pretty good, not really liking the gigantic steel beam for a bar across the engine bay

So it's official were no longer the King of the hill. We've now become "the old body style". Atleast that's how the average joe will see it.

Does this mean we'll be treated like the sn95 guys do? Cause that's just mean.

Next thing you know they'll be all these new members here that treat us like yesterday's stang.

No I'm guessing there will be some other new cool forum geared towards them that they'll flock to. Either way we'll always have POTR.

Well considering all the performance mods will be the same be careful you don't end up being the one that gets punked.

Don't rain on my parade




I know. It's the same car with minor touches. I hope it sells. Huge relief though, I really didn't want to have buyer's remorse.

Thank God. I can't wait for the Camaro to come out too. That way the posers and a-holes that couldn't give two ***** about the Mustang and only want the 'latest cool car' will leave us and the shows.

What will be left are the people that care about Mustangs. The part that will suck is our cars will probably de-value quite a bit now, for those not looking to keep it.

Gotta admit the 2011 5.0 litre will be cool, especially with Sync and all the other goodies. Still, I love me '07. Unless something catastrophic happens it'll be a keeper.

The way I see it, it's like the 69 and 70 fastbacks. Same platform, but different styling cues. And I'll pick the 69 over the 70 anyday.

But, if the transformation of the S197 is anything like the SN95 from 94 to 04, we're in trouble. The 03/04 Cobras were the Bees Knees!

Will this be a true 302 block or a stroked 281?

Something to consider Brian when you dip into the bottom end, a stroker kit.
