OK, now I'm really psyched! Check out these pictures at Stangnet. Brings back memories of my '69 and '70. I like the Bullitt, but this is even sweeter! Fords got a buyer in me. http://www.stangnet.com/mach1/mach1.html

Now, if I could just hit Lotto......

Ford did an unveiling of the 360R here in Vegas. Pretty sweet car, but 50k? I don't think so.

The real "MACH 1" is not a build up of an existing car...It's a whole new redesign....thunderbird ring a bell.

The Mach 1 is technically supposed to be a built up Cobra. With such classic looks, and features as the classic Mach 1 Shaker Hood Scoop........

I like it, but id take the 03 Cobra.

i like it, but why does it only have 3.27 gears?
i thought it would at least have 3.73 (or 4.11)

if they go with an over agressive gear ratio, they could piss people off. im sure a bunch of people will want to get their Mach 1s blown, turboed, or NOSed, and even with 3.73s the ugly traction monster stick his head out everynow and then. It would probably piss peope if they had to go down the ratio ladder because of traction problems, im not defending them. just explaining the way i see it, although the 3.27s allowed for better gas mileage. even though most people buying a V8 usually aren't worried about that :) i can't wait to get my 4.10s

The latest specs I saw were 3.55:1, so maybe they are compromising. I'm gonna try and hit the show here in NY to get an up close and personal look, as well as grab as much info I can. I can't wait till this fall, just wish Silver was one of the colors they were using (it's not :mad: )

also remember that a 3.27 in a stang moves it a lot faster than a 3.27 in an X.... my point is: whenever i read mustang magazines people always write in and say i want more acceleration...all the mags say put in a 3.55 and if you are really extreme put in 3.73.....
