    Aloha Automotive plans to build about 40 of these machines, which I think are pretty fucking fresh. Too bad they start at 135k.

    My step father owns a 1970 SS 454, a 67 with a supercharged 427 (880-1020 rwhp), and a 69 convertible.

    I grew up loving chevelles.

    Too bad these look like ass.

    their too tall for the wheels...makes it look like this huge car on tiny wheels. and the wheel design sucks. and i hate how the lights are on a different plane than the grill.

    :( great idea but i think this could have gotten a way bettter makeover than it did. An the motor forgive if im wrong but it looks like there common ole run of the mill ls1 motor they seem to stick in everything now....i mean i dont knock them for trying to keep the legend alive but like the new monte carlo it lacked in a body styling that only could have come out of the 50's 60's an 70's..............the idea though of owning one of 30 of these is pretty sweet but i think chevy an ford (they kinda gave up though after bringing back the thunderbird) should just drop the whole reliving the golden age of cars an start trying to catch up to this compact car craze all the kids are raving about....i mean look at dodge an there new srt turbo neon....crazy shit.

    i like cars in general but im ford man but not your run of the mill mustang man lol i dunno. i have a 64 nova that im currently putting together an a 65 ford falcon that i bracket race with...

    the thought of them bringing the car back in the market is cool but to me pretty much all theyre doing in the end is bringing back the name an sticking it on poorly designed imposter.

    i disagree, i think the new mustangs are pretty rad. the GT/COBRA's at least. i'm not big on FORD at all either. i had a late 60's mustang and completely destroyed the car doing retarded adolescent shit.

    i like that they tried to give it a old school new school feel, but the headlights, belong where the grill is aligned too...cause that popping out grill, what the fuck is this batman car or some shit.....they did the back of the car perfect, i think the front could of been better...and i dont like the bottom too, but it was a good attempt i guess....good idea and concept, bad job putting the front together.....i rather drive the old school ver. though

    I agree that it could be much better in a few ways. But overall I like it. I wouldn't drop $135k on it but I can appreciate what they've done here. The headlights are my biggest gripe as far as the exterior goes. Oh well.

    The new throwback Mustang GT is hot shit.
