just saw......

Just saw my first 2005 muzy in the flesh at Glasgow airport, Scotland this
morning...dark blue metalic ,good looking car...I would swop my '66 coupe
for that !...which is more than I would say for the '74 to '94
versions......what a waste of 20years...looks just as easy to design a good
looking car as a bad one.....

Re: just saw......

My first car was a used '74 Pintostang with an underwhelming 171 engine.
While it really didn't measure up to the earlier Mustangs, that car has
a soft spot in my heart. It was a good first car that I really treated
poorly. When I was 18 I bought a new '79. I loved that car. Today my
son drives an '80 2-door that we've been working on for the past 4
years. I don't consider these "bad" cars by any stretch of the imagination.

Re: just saw......


And thats why your family never left the 'old world' I imagine? taste? :)

My personal fav Mustang of 71+ would be a 85 GT with T-Tops, in red,
with grey interior (red piping). There are so few nice four-eye examples
around these days... Sigh... I saw a 85 GT convertible (same color
scheme) when I went for groceries the other nite. Now thats a fairly
rare car these days. It was in real nice shape too.

Re: just saw......

My family lived with your lot in 59-61 - Troon... right next door to
St Andrews... and Prestwick.... Good people but the cars were kinda
sucky... : ) Ford Anglia, Vauxhall, etc....

I do believe that it is a real challenge to actually design and
produce an ugly car.... I'm reminded of the Edsel, Aztec, and a few
others through the intervening years.... considering all the people
who have to be convinced that the public will scoop them up, and the
company is not going to lose any money on them.

Even some Mustang IIs are getting hot....

So, in all those years, and one of the reasons it still exists, there
seems to be something for every taste 'cause people have continued to
buy them.

people with no taste will buy anything !......one of my checks is to ask
people if they think the Jaguar XJ-S was a good looking car....if they say
yes they have no taste...simple......
