Like:
the cut-away roof
actual HP numbers
rear of the car (esp tail-lights)
underhood, very clean, very nice
shaved look
interior is almost too much, but it works (except for the mostly stock steering wheel)

Dislikes:
the stickers, too much
doors, have yet to see a conversion of that type that works well
hood, ram air that isn't just doesn't work, too much of a bulge as well

un-decided:
all of the electronics, i'm more of a function over form guy, for a show car it works, but on anything else i would seriously dislike it
where are the exhaust tips? there are cutouts for them on the rear valence, but i don't see them

overall, i give it a 9 our of 10, not really what i would have done, but i can appreciate the amount of work done to it
didn't get higher because a few things appeared to be unfinished

I had the opportunity to see & hear this awsome car a number of times while the guys @ X-M-P work on my car.

All I can say is I have never seen anything like it, the cool thing is the car still looks "all mustang" even after all the great custom work.

Well done Eric, keep it up. :green

Great site guys.

The article was great... and the car is just awsome. The work they had to put into it to get it ready for SEMA in just 6 weeks.

Saw the car at the Knott's show, and it looks even better in person. Have to had it to Eric, building one awsome show car that will turn in good times on the track too. Good work.

Article is good! I really like the performance, power and handling, goodies. HRE wheels are the best, period! I wish I could afford them.

I had seen this car at Knott's too. Like I've said before, about the way it looks, not my cup of tea. But the workmanship that has gone into this thing, especially with the time constraints, is phenomenal! My hat is off to the folks at XMP, good work guys!

The model can go. We need more verity. I personally don't want to see the same model over and over. Id rather see none.

Mustang Feature Car

I like it! Things I like most are the ground effects all-around, and the double hood scoop. The scoop is reminiscent of the early 70's MachI's (imo). Gull-wing doors...can take them or leave them personally but they look cool on a show car.:thumbup

I like its something you dont see and you can tell they put some effort into it i would say they put some time into but 6 weeks on a car like that blows my mind.

I agree. Let's mix it up a little! I get right on that.:smoke:

Actually there were three. All three were done by XMP. The other two had them done after seeing Eric's Mach.:drool: :worship

The car is off the hook and i feel that the car was well put together. I would have like to seen more of the inside, but the car is still on a league of its own.

Great Job
Hope to see more cars like it.

Sick Ride... the good kind of sick. Don't recall a more extreme Mustang or other late model custom ride. Get a bandage for this bleeding edge, beyond belief, piece of art and science rocket ship!

Gotta take that to the track after it's show pony career is winding down and see what she'll do... you up for that Max?

Heck, with that much power and juice, maybe Bonneville... :)

Born Ready

I'll talk to Eric. I am sure he would love to let the pony gallop a few laps on a road course and chalk up a few quarter mile times to boot!

The car is probably going up for sale soon... to the ticket price of $125,000. It is more than likely going to run in the classified section of the DuPont Registry...
