OK then i'll be the wet blanket.

The only modification i don't dislike is the 14" brakes. The body add-ons are all stuff i'd rather do without and wheels with any more than 5 spokes look odd. I dunno, are people tired of the stock 05's looks already?

The grill effects are terrible IMO. First are the BB eyed headlites that look like 2 pee holes in a snow drift (well not really LOL!) but they are two small. They look like an afterthought.

Like the idea of no JC Whitney style grille lites but the shape of the grille opening fights with the headlite design. Notice the sides of the grill opening that fights with the headlite area. It just doesn't fit well.

Feel that Saleen will get blown out of the water when the Shelby Mustang hits the street.

Keep going back to the original concept car front end design. That was the ticket. But even that one should have had sculptured headlites to match the lite opening. Retro lite throwback design got in the way of an otherwise great styling job.

Like the look of the V-6 grille the best. Compare that grill opening with the Saloon. Notice that there are no conflicting areas. The V-6 front end with a twin scoop hood (which is in the works by one aftermarket co.) would be the neatest IMNSHO

Not so keen myself.
Dont like the combo of Rice and Retro.
I think Fords GT mustang gets the nod, but I dont think 25hp and some body mods are worth 20 grand...
