The Boss 429 or 428 Cobra Jet would be nice but the 302 Boss would be my top pic! Steve McQueen made a 390 scream on the streets of San Francisco though in a 68.

Future of our V8s?

I'd take a 69 gt fastback with the 429 SCJ in it and top loader 4 speed and 9in rear end and drag pack option...
I've only know of one being produced...

OK, the 429CJ was a wedge headed motor. Only the Boss had hemi heads.

Yes that's right, the difference between the cobra jet and super cobra jet is the crank, connecting rods, and weights used balancing the crank. With the drag pack it, is equipped with a oil cooler and 3.91 or 4.30 gears...
On the 429 variants the SCJ got a slightly bigger carburetor 780cfm oppose to 700cfm on the CJ.
On the 428 variants they had the same hp rating despite the SCJ being able to rev high than the CJ. It was a more purpose built drag race engine, it handled the abuse better.

I found the shorts...

I wanna bang thought the gears in a Ford 5.0 ..singing along with Denis Leary to this song while I still have breath in my lungs, a right to own a firearm and privilege of getting 15 mpg if I want to.

Denis Leary , a**hole song. If you never heard it, it's a treat.

Even though we would love to have one the .01% of the buying public.

I love a old school vehicle no doubt I just have a dislike of the carb. Yet on my daily commute having children, a wife, the modern conveniences of newer vehicles are great. We drove a Ford Fusion Titanium back in December that car was great for a day driver I must say hands free rocked whole checking on family during our trip.

I think you are wrong, dead wrong.
My son is 4 years old and loves cars, his favorite is old muscle cars. This is something he picked up all on his own. Those old style muscle cars appeal to ANY generation. Goodness, im only 31. Why would my dream car be a '69 Mach 1? My existence wasnt even in consideration back then.
You're tellin me, that if they sold one of those sweet mustangs from the 60s that operated like a 2015 mustang, you wouldn't creme over it??

It's not the appeal of the car it's the fact that we have grown to like all the creature comfort of modern day built vehicles four or more cup holders, navigation, touch screen.

The actual size of the buyers willing to buy a car for daily driving with little or no comfort is small. I miss my 65 and 73 Mustangs my son loves old school muscle cars as I do but people are lazy today compared to the buying public nearly fifty years ago.

West Coast customs took the shell of a 1969 and put it on the chassis of a 2012 GT. If course they added all their modern and special touches. But it was a Mustang that looked just like a 1969 but would perform like a 2012 5.0

exactly what i said it has to look old but run new inside could be modern as long as the body was old school and made of metal and like he said he is in his 30's and loves 69 mach 1 im in my 20's and i would like a mach 1 also like he said the kids like the old muscle cars better so pretty much all age generations from 80 90 and 2000 like old school and u can tell me the older generation that used to own them like 50 60 and 70's wont so basically all generations will buy the market is there. what would u prefer a 2015 irs gt or a 1969 shape mustang with all the coyote components or the gt500 of the year and run like new not a hard one for me to choose

You don't get it, everything is modern except the body. So you get all the creature comforts. The reason they wont do it though is that it would be practically impossible to satisfy modern safety regulations.
There are actually shops that will do it, but the thing is that it costs dearly and takes a long time.

Then again, if they used a '73 body, that would be big enough to work in some safety regs

Looks like if true, the bridges will really be crowed with the OLD V8 owners.

Kind of on topic, the current issue of Hot Rod magazine has a very interesting article on Muscle Car Engine Shootout. Very interesting.

A bit redundant I guess. It is about 26 different V8s available as crate motors, including Boss500s and 600s.

Ford just did a bunch of R&D on the flat crank 5.2 voodoo motor. I doubt they will ditch it any time soon.

It would be pure death if Ford were to drop a V8 lineup for the Mustang. With the serious Dodge entry now, along with Camaro, Ford has to know it would be an absolute mistake to drop the V8.

However, since the Mustang is now "World market", you will see plenty more design and power from the 4 cylinder turbo, and possibly the V6 side of the house. European vehicles have been using a turbo 4 cylinder for years; great power and fuel mileage.

So, I would not worry about a Mustang with no V8 anytime soon, unless all three of the current boys decide to drop them. That, would only hurt their sales numbers, so I don't expect it.
