Re: If you could change ONE aspect of teh 2005+ stangs what would it be

The styling of the back half of the car. The front has that classic look, but the back just seems like the deadline was close so they said **** it, close enough. It just seems to be lacking and bland looking.

I would also change the weight. Come on...2 tons? Get that **** down yo.

And wtf...how bout some meats in the back wide enough to handle over 100 hp? This isn't a bicycle y'all.

Ok, so that is 3...oh well...bite me.

On a good note...The clutch in the manual is a dream...man I loved shifting that GT.

i'd make the headlights slant up instead of down on the outside.. the front of the car looks like it's making a "sad" expression to me

+39 on the rear end.

I may be buying one if/when I move to Texas. I'll have to find some sort of different rear bumper ASAP.

For those of us that don't like the rolling box....

When it looks like a '69, I'll buy one. You know, side scoop higher up, pointed front end, longer sexier roof line, and a shaker.

Only ONE thing?!?! Well, the way the lower rocker panel sits against the body panels on the side and rear of the car looks awful, like they didn't know how to finish the car.

And the shifter is amazing.

But the vert roof is to low. My head was sticking out of it.

Re: If you could change ONE aspect of the 2005+ stangs what would it be

That's an easy one, about the only thing I'd like to change is this:

Make the V6 an SPI 4.2!

Also make a good true dual exhaust standard on the V6.
2.25" to match with the 4.2 liter Split Port engine. "H" pipe.

Make a model like the mach 1..

Don't want the GT500 and I probably won't want the boss.. but give me the shaker hood and the flat black accenting with, say.. a 4V with around 330ish HP.. I think I'd want one..

I really want to know why Ford didnt do this but... Make the actual gas tank filler hole on the back of the car, that would bring back a good sense of old.
