Check 'em out folks... it's getting closer to production: http://www.imagestation.com/album/pictures.html?id=4290887359

Still not sure what I think of it. The front end is ok, but the rear looks like the Capri (90's version), and the interior needs some work. Hopefully there's still time to make some design changes.

If the pics on your site are anything like the one's Steve posted in a previous thread in Sam's Place, then I hate the back end.

However, I did find these pics on another site. If this is any indication of what the rear will look like, I have newfound hope the new Mustang will be ok.

If you look closely at the second pic, you can see the holdover, SN95 type taillights.

I dunno...looking at the profile in the third pic gives me hope too. Lord I hope it doesn't turn out to be like the pictures Steve posted. They were...

Those pics are on www.bradbarnett.net/mustangs/concept/s197/ as well. Check for the 2005 info to see all the related info.
But I am still positive that the new Mustang will be much more like Sean's designs based on the Ford CAD drawing.
BTW- he send me some new designs based on the AUTOWEEK pics of the CONCEPT CAR Mustang V.

This site has just about all the pics I've seen to date:

Still not wild about the tail lights or the interior. I'm guessing the interior will be radically different come production time so I'm not too worried about that. I might have to live with the tail lights. I guess I could do that. I hear they are sequential, though. That would be
