Lifted from a newbie post on another forum.

Thought you'd get a kick out of this guys ideas.
Yes, they are giving him crap!
---------------------
"I have alway loved the concept of the Mustang automobile...freedom, an american dream...and one day I hope to acheive that goal...owning my own "American Dream", a Mustang. I'm not sure what one I want though. I have an idea...but from what I have researched on the internet it doesn't seem as if my vision of a Mustang even exsists. So that's why I am on here, asking questions and hoping for answers. I probably sound dumb but please excuse this because I am not that well educated in the Mustang's history. The Mustang of my dreams must include all of these aspecs; I would take the body of a 1967 Shelby GT 350 Fastback, T-top (is this possible with this year? if not could it happen??), I would put some sort of hood scoops in (I have always liked how the ram air looks on the Pontiac Firebird, newer modles) with the hood I want the on-looker to see the Mustang as if it were staring back with mean grin, you know the kind, you usually saw it whenever you pissed your dad off. On the back window I would put the paneling (don't know the correct name for it.) I don't know whether or not to add a spoiler on the back because sometimes they just ruin a cool car, that would be something I would have to make an on-site choice.
I would alos raise the car up a bit, making it seem as though it could go off road if it wanted, who knows a pony like this needs to be able to run free every now and again. The exhaust would come out on the sides of the Mustang, under the doors (if not possible maybe could be there for looks just as long as everything looks like it should be there and not just something to add just to give it a cool look.) The engine would be...well...a Shelby GT 350, manual...not sure what speed? I have seen 4 and 5 on some of my web browsing...if it can go six...well why the hell not. I want my Mustang's engine to roar, not purr, I've always loved the sound of a Harley. Well I think that's all my mind can think of right now. I would like to discuss this more if anyone is interested. If this Mustang is at all possible or at least one close to it please let me know. Thanks for listening. "

He will probably come down from whatever he is on sooner or later.

Yikes Joyce. Don't know who came up with that idea, but it just looks plain WRONG. Looks like it might have been a GT. No accounting for some folks taste. I know it's thier car and they can do what ever they want. Some ideas are best left as ideas.
