..."in action", too, except it was a black GT model.

All I have to say is, "I want one!"

Brilliant re-capture! What took them so long?, posted on December 3, 2004 at 12:18:33
. . . and, can they leave it that way with out putting the 70's treatment on it.

This thing brings out the boom in baby boomer.

One or two in town here also. It makes me wonder though what Ford's design team is up to. T-Bird; modern redo of a 55-57 model. GT-40, modern redo. Mustang; '69 redo. Is the Pinto/Bobcat coming back next? :)
I know Chev has their retro truck, there's the VW bug and also the mini... probably others I'm not remembering, but three cars in one manufacturers lineup?

I drove one as a rental car several weeks ago. Just 300 miles! Rented an "intermediate" car from Avis and they upgraded me to a red Mustang, though regular model not GT. Very nice looking car. It was fun- When I hit the gas I felt like screaming "America! Fuck Yeah!" But the power seemed more raw than graceful. And I did not feel the same steering precision I feel on my wife's base Audi A4. Finally the rear-view mirror was pretty low on the windshield, making it hard for me to see what is in my path when I turned right. But no doubt I'd take such a "free upgrade" again!

You may enjoy the look of the new mustang as I do, but if you want the best factory produced hot rod, with USA horsepower, move on over to the cadillac CTS-V. Not much on the street today can take it and certainly anything that can costs MUCH more than it does.

If your a boomer.... grow up and get a CTS-V .... and enjoy the mustangs from the rear view mirror.

This guy is right, since the Catera Cadillac's have been Wolfs in sheeps clothing.
