Whats up with the back seat?

I love my 5.0 but why can't Ford accommodate a few more inches of leg room? Seems like a simple fix. Someone fetch me my Mustang stretcher.

Because then it would be too big and bloated just like the challenger. They'd have to increase the wheel base or take away from the front seat and/or engine compartment. That would be unacceptable

Still considering a Vette? Maybe keep the back seat just in case. Probably cost more to replace that what you could sell it for.

Lol at this guy ^ and in my 99 basically the front of the back seat touches the back of my front seat. I barely put anyone in the back cause they usually have to lay across the back seats to fit

I was referring to 5.0 mustang man. Didn't copy the blue post for some reason

Yea its not bad for kids, the rear windshield is right over your head... I hit a crater and my brother hit his head hard from the windshield... so basically full grown adults have a hard time back there
