    Just a few more days until their official debut at the 2005 Los Angeles Auto Show. I'm very curious as to what they're going to look like in person. Guess I'll have to wait a few more months to find out.

    Haven't seen it with the top up, but add the thick roll-bar thing across the top and that thing, imo, looks bada$$

    Not bad, but I'm still disappointed in what the rear of the new Mustang looks like. It needs a blackout panel between the lights, chrome rings around each section of the lights, and a "real" bumper on the back. I've seen one from one of the tuners (Steeda maybe?) with the rear end modified, and it looks mucho better.

    I'm also concerned about visibility out of the vert for those of us who are over 6'. I sat in an '04 vert at the dealership when I got my Mach, and with the seat back and down as far as I could put it, my line of sight was directly into the cross bar on top of the windshield :(. Hopefully the new body style fixes that problem.

    Yep, that's what I meant...now it needs some chrome bezels for the taillights and a more distinct rear bumper. The front looks great, but they blew it on the tail.

    We debated waiting for the '05 but went with the '04 Mach becasue of Ford's history of 1st year problems, the limited production of the Mach, and the performance....

    I do not like the vert much at all, despite loving the coupe. With the top up in that rear shot it looks like a Sebring :thumbdwn:. Maybe my opinion will change when i see one in person. I will admit, the 05 coupe's look even better in person than they do in pics.

    I'm betting most of you will like it once you see it in person. Just a hunch. ;)

    I thought the new Mountaineer was ugly until I saw it in person. Now I think it looks better/nicer than the new Explorer.

    I've seen quite a few in person, and I still don't like the tail end....

    I saw it in person at the car show. Exterior is great, very sharp with attractive lines and an unmistakable Mustang look. Wasn't impressed with the interior, the V6's interior is very poorly constructed with cheap overly grainy plastics, much less appealing than the current interior. The GT is better with the leather wrapped wheel and metal inserts but still nothing fantastic.

    I think the Bullit rims look awsome on the new stangs, however I do not like them on the convert. above

    Now THAT looks sweet. I wonder why Ford isn't offering that as an option?
