I'm not really a car guy per se, but does anyone else like the throwback looks of the 2005 mustang?

I hate it. And here is why. The souped-up version looks OK. But anything below it will look like crap. The rear passenger window is too small, and covered by too much metal. The rear lights look like red lego bricks (What happened to amber-turning lights!!??). The car starts off strong in the front, and looks like they gave the rear-end to some young designers smoking too much pot, who got too lazy and wanted the doritos.

Yeah, I can see how you guys say they kinda dropped the ball when it comes to the back end. But it's all about the front for me. I dig that bad ass hotrod look from the 70's thing

Ford must be hiring back their designers from the 70's. It looks like the Shelby version from Gone in 60 Seconds.

Like I said already, old is the new new this year.

Just like all recent new car designs, they go with an extreme styling change. They want the love it/hate it opinions that they draw. The "love it" guys will buy them up right away, and the "hate it" guys will spread the word and create discussion about it, even if it is negative.

Cheers ... Ian :)

What I dont get is the contraversy with the Z4. Its beautifully sculpted, and people were signing a petition to get the main designer, Chris Bangle, FIRED! First off, they have way too much time on their hands, but secondly, wtf! its way better than the z3...

I have found that with the last 3 generations (including this one), the Mustang grew on me initially, but after about 1 year, it just seemed "boring". Their styling doesn't seem to have longevity.

yes but the brand does. That's gotta amount to something. Look at Daimler....they could have been up there if they kept the GTO in production all these years

BMW models usually go 7-8 years before a styling change. So the initial reaction to the look of them is often greeted poorly by the general public. But eventually as a few years go by, they do not look out of line with what the other car manufacturers start coming out with.

But we are not talking about the longevity of the brand, just the longevity of the look of the vehicle.

The Buick LeSabre has been around for a while, but it still looks like shit. It has boring styling even when it is renewed. The majority of car buyers are not too worried about look and just want a functional vehicle.

Interesting responses to this thread in terms of people's aesthetic leanings...

I tend to go for muscular stances and lines in design

I like BMW's M3 and Harley Davidson VROD for similar reasons
