That and one thing I looked for in mine, was a Trunk release button inside the car! Lazy but a feature they should add.

OHV motor :lol:


I mean, OHC works great if its a 4cyl honda that wants to rev to 8-9k but not for something like this that you would want gobs of low end up off idle torque, and spinning it to 6k or whatever still shouldnt be to big of a problem...but I doubt ford would put decent parts in it to do that.
Man the current Stangs have both OHV and OHC engines?

I'm with Riden when it comes to the interior, and it definitely needs a moonroof or t-tops.

less weight
make a supercharged engine an option available on regular GT's with 400-425 hp
bring back the 302 cubic inch displacement for GT's
also maybe some type of cylinder deactivation system for better mileage

A less cheesy interior.
Yeah I know that is part of the charm, but damn, at around 30 grand I start looking for a little more quality, and attention to details.

Damn good looking avitar. Is it set up for combat course and if so who did the work?
What kind of groups do you shoot with it and how often do you shoot. I used to be a competition shooter and instructor back before my eyes got so bad. At one time I had 16 45acps set up for different kinds of shooting from NRA paper punching to bowling pin to combat to police qualification to just plinking. Since I can't see to shoot well any more I'm slowly selling off my guns and reloading supplies but I will always have a 45 around.

I'd like to see better seats (more side support like in the SRT-8 dodges), maybe a targa roof and get rid of the back seat, it's pretty useless unless you are really small.

I think an interior like the interior of the 04-06 GTO. Realistically, the worst part about the back seat is getting out of it. Unless the front seat passenger and driver are both tall.

Hey Snake 42, I`ve just turned 43 yrs old and had to get me a set of them there spectacles this past year, it helped my shooting, but now I`m worried that when I start hitting my "golden" years that it won`t be enough. Guess I`ll have to make hay while the sun is still shining.

I shoot IPSC, IDPA, PPC, Bullseye (occasionally), some silhouette, plus shooting plates at the gun club for fun.

The gun in the avatar is my personal favorite, it`s a Les Baer Concept III with a S&A magwell custom fitted by yours truly, plus I slapped a pair of tulip wood grips on it and lightend up the sear spring a hair to get about a 1 3/4 lb pull, still safe and reliable. I`ve been shooting competitively for about 15 years now, and love it just as much as when I started. With my reloads (Dillion square deal) it will shoot a ragged one holer off of sandbags if I`m having a good day. Les Baer claims it will shoot 1 1/2'' at 50 yds with a ransom rest, but I`d have to see it for myself to believe it.

I shoot this gun in IPSC , IDPA, and PPC (semi auto class) mostly.( yes I know that the trigger doesn`t make the weight for PPC, but I`m usually the only one shooting semi auto class anyway)

Sorry to hear of your eyes going south on you, at our club it is mostly the older generation that is showing up, I wish more young folks would take an active interest in this outstanding sport. It has to be at least as much fun as them video games.

Things needed: IRS, 6 speed manual, 400HP, 19" wheels, glass roof, and seats with actual lateral support and suede inserts.

Things NOT needed: T-Tops, heated seats, and a navigation system.

Yeah, it's tough when your eyes start to go. I thought about going with a scoped pistol but they're not legal in a lot of classes. I'll turn 66 in January of 08 and have had no trouble with my eyes at all until 3 years ago when I had cat. surgery on my left eye. About 6 months after the surgery the implant fogged up and had to be repaired. After that I had a retina detach and three surgeries later they got the retina anchored but it left my eye with areas that I can't see through. Because of the strain of trying to make up for the weak eye the other eye had started to go. The Dr. said that I will probably never be completely blind but that was before I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes which has hastened the deterioration of my vision. I used to reload all my ammunition, do my own gunsmith work, and shoot Sporting clays, Trap, Skeet, Large and Smallbore rifle, Sniper Training, Paper Targets, Combat, Bowling Pins and Fast Draw. I've got literally hundreds of pieces of equipment for reloading, gunsmith tools, Targets, Powder, Primers, Bullets, Shot, Wads, Hulls, Cases, Shotguns, Rifles, Revolvers, Semi-autos, etc. If you know anyone in the game give them my name and tell them it's all for sale.
From now on I guess I'll just stick to cars and golf. I'm fair with cars but I'm not nearly as good at shooting golfs as I was at shooting other things.
By the way, I've also got two bows and some arrows and shop equipment for Archery that's for sale.

Snake 42 :confused:

T-tops for sure... - they would have to look good and I HIGHLY doubt they would
rear window wiper - they look stupid... sure they work but they ruin the clean look
digital speedometer - they dont work right when accelerating fast. I know on mine you can flip the readout to show digital if you wish
bigger fuel tank - might not be a bad idea
performance package - I wish they would other than just one little thing or so and from the factory not ford add on after the dealership gets it
HID headlights - they already offer this :)
put back the 5.0L engine - to old tech... wont happen. They may up the size (which they need to) but they wont go back to the same push rod tech
and LIGHTER much much LIGHTER - wont happen either... with all the crap they want to stick on it to help it sell and the regulations they have to meet... its gonna get worse if anything.

I actually had to read the owners manual to figure there was no trunk release inside the vehicle. Have to use the key, or the remote to open it.

That's true, but sometimes I head out in the garage to put something in the trunk and I rarely carry the keys. A little button in the glovebox would have been nice.
