What do you think about this Mustang???

Not too crazy about it but I do like the what he did with the rear window louvers.

351C 4V cc heads, 10.5 : 1 CR, 290 Herbert cam, Flat top forged pistons, forged connecting rods, Atomic efi,
C6 with Gear Vendor overdrive, 3.89 Tru Trac, Hooker Super Comp with 2 1/2" Pypes Exhaust.        

Some Mod pictures can be seen at:

But besides matters of taste obviously somebody had taken a lot of effort and love to it so this is cool - and a real good reminisce about the 80ies thumb

I like how he got rid of the seams. The fender bulges are a little too much for my taste as well as the rear spoiler setup. I like it but would have toned it back just a tad. Fog lamps have to go. Front and rear tires don't match.

I like the color a lot. I can appreciate the guys work.

Pics of modifications included in:
Would have looked amazing in around 1983. I saw stuff like this at the time in a mag called Street Machine. Time hasn't been kind though.
This is the style modifications they did back in the 70's when they were new. Sun roof, flares, scoops, metalflake paint were the rage then. Way out of date for sure. Unless it just floats your boat it would not bring as much as a good original version. Lots of the molding in was done with fiberglass and filler and cracks when the car is driven.
I know one Boss 351, from back then, that everything that could be unbolted and put in a chrome tank got chrome plated. Rear end, suspension, driveshaft everything. The guy is having a time with going back original costing a fortune to get rid of the chrome. Not many miles on the car it was show car from new just all the now not so tasteful chrome.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
