I read where he was going to do an '05 stang. To tell you truth I thought it would have been a little more outstanding than those shots. But still, it is nicely done.

Those pics are alot better. I can see his style in them but I expected some kind of sheet metal massaging like fatter flares with some radical tires in them. Then again it's hard to improve upon a look that is already sleek. Those strips look like they are done with some kind of light sensitive paint maybe. And man, why didn't he do something with those mirrors.

Correct me if I am wrong, but first is this car not a joint venture between Foose and someone else? If so, that may expalin the rather conservative llok for Foose. Also, I though I read that this is a somewhat of a production model, similar to the GT500E that is made from the "Gone in 60 seconds" movie. If that is true, would it not be expected for Foose to be a bit more conservative in a production (even limited) car as opposed toa one-off car? In any case, I do love Foose and his work, and I think this Stang is sharp. I would sell my soul to the Devil for Foose to do one of my cars, even my Stang.:worship

I dunno for some reason it does not pump my nads, and I am a big Foose and mineral grey fan. I like the front and I like the back, but the wheels and the shot of the stripe from the side do not work for me. For some reason the Boss style stripping does not look right on these cars IMHO, I don't know why because it looked so good back on the original Boss cars and our body sytle is very similar to that.

Its a joint venture between Foose & Unique Performance (same company that makes the GT500E shelbies). Production is estimated at 3000 per year with an msrp starting at 38k according to the site:

Personally, there are a few things I like about it, and a number of things I don't like about it. Not real keen on the nose job... and I don't particularily care for all the panel seperation lines. I do like the smooth rocker panels tho. The rear-end has recieved a nice treatment I think. I like the hood... the nose, however, just feels too much like another elenor clone... I'm not feeling it.
