Chip Foose
I don't love it. But I don't hate it ether. I'm just glad he did it!

The rendering has a MUCH better stripe. It also has more squared off flares and a rounder, lower behind.

the rear of the car behind the tire looks like two different cars.

Well, yeah! It's because he was secretly wanting it to turn into a '69-'70 with Camaro taillights. whistling


Too soon? rofl

Chip Foose is a great custom builder and has great ideas. The Mustang MACH FOOSE is awesome and is a work of art. Chip works hard on his project too. I would love to have a MACH FOOSE only if I could work on it along with him! Mine would have a big block, more of an original interior, gotta have 15'' wide tires rear and 12' front autocross style. to each his own. Peace out.

All in all I not hating the look from 20 feet. From there you can't see the interior, or the pin stripe. And the door handles and mirrors aren't as noticeable. Its the wheels that remind me of the Chrysler star logo that I'm hung up on. Other than that its pretty cool!

The wheels pretty much look like the '68 Shelby wheels. Yet one more thing he swiped from earlier model years.

I guess he called that in as well, rather than come up with something new.

I'm sorry guys - yes, the man is talented and his work is top-notch... but I still wouldn't let him touch anything of mine. Come to think of it, nor would I allow anybody else, either... Kindig It, Count's Customs, Ass Monkey, etc., because I have my own ideas and that's what I want... not someone else's.

Over all I like what he has done. I would do a few changes to the car myself but just because I would like the changes, does not mean someone else would. When you look at the car, Chip and the builders took a 71 body and grafted it onto a 2010 Mustang chassis. It took a lot of work and a lot of trial and error. In the end it is a 2010 mustang with a 71 body on it. It was a huge job and I see it is a popular one by reading Classic Mustang Magazines. I think he did a great job as I am all about mixing new with old.

I think the rims looks odd (to me anyway) because there is no dish to them. They are flat against the tire on the sidewall. I'm not a fan of the door handles or the Camaro taillights. But as stated before glad he's brought more attention to how cool the 7173s are.

The best thing I can say about the wheels is at least they're not the ones with the fake white sidewalls built into the rim.

I know, right? Those are just weird. Not to mention I think wide white-walls would look absolutely hideous on these cars.
