I dont know what a shooting brake is but I dont like that thing one bit. The talent to create it aside it looks pretty ugly. Maybe id like it better if it wasnt a Mustang??

Not in this lifetime... but the quality to create it was awesome.

CWW-

biggest reasons why the new mustang is such a runaway success:

1) it dont say mustang anywhere on the car
2) from any angle at 4 blocks away everyone instantly recognizes it as a mustang.

the current car captured all the right bits and pieces of the old styling queues to make it the first 'correct' looking mustang in 35 years.

you have definitely got some darn good abilities to photoshop- great pic- but to us classic car nuts(apparently the younger crowds love the new 'stang too) it totally misses the mark.

suggestion: find some pics of a 1969 cougar and freshen it up a bit- I truly believe that might be the only thing close to the current mustang ford could do with such runaway success as the stang. 67-69 cougars were elegant/yet sporty, and downright pretty cars.

a hatchback/pickup/4door/wagon mustang will simply never fly over here...could you imagine BMW bringing back the beautiful M1 or 850 series as a wagon or a 4 door over there?

an updated early cougar just BEGS to go on the mustangs chassis...just my 2 cents.

another thing (or two):
vintage mustangs often had 5 spoke aftermarket wheels- the standard gt wheel 'looks right to me' but would look better with another inch of 'lip' depth on the rim.

the quad headlights are not vintage, nor the little round aircraft style foglights.

these kinds of 'current' items might fit better on a more 'today' styled bland sedan...see lots on little hondas with big tailpipes and such, some looked ok, most look silly to me- sorry.

in general, on a car with 'heritage inspired' styling, big diameter flat faced 8/10/(or more) spoked wheels, projection lamps, clear lensed tailllamps all kinda look downright ugly to me- sorry if I'm a dinosaur, but you were asking for opinions.

Picking up on ford4's thread...seeing all the old school muscle cars at my first drag yesterday, I will admit in all honesty there was one car/style that had me lookin' away from Dixi (boy was she pissed)...

Those '70 Barracudas just freakin' ROCKED!

That front hood and the way it comes down to a thin menacing line in front...and the sweep of the car hood...

If Plymouth decided to bring that body style back, I'm afraid Dixi would have to get used to a stepsister.

Here it is:

Sorry for being politically incorrect here, too, but...the Euros don't understand U.S. cars, U.S. foreign policy, U.S. country music, or U.S. religion either. They can keep their hands off our Mustangs, thank you very much...

Actually, it does say "Mustang" on the inside of each door along the rocker panel. Just thought I would mention that.:)

Well I learned a little bit from my German grandma so maybe I can help with this:

Nein!


Nice graphic work, though.

I think the concept is pretty cool, but DON'T call it a mustang. A long nosed, V8, RWD wagon, if done right, would be a really cool idea. Look at the dodge magnum - you see 'em everywhere. If you take that idea, make it a bit more retro, give it enough motor to back it up, it would be cool.


But don't call it a mustang!!!
(great job on the picture, though!)

On edit: I was looking through some of your other stuff on your site...some of it looks really good. I like this one: http://www.cwwcardesign.com/cars/mbslkcoupe.html

I gotta admit, to me #2 was always the 68-70 challenger(not even sure the year). the 'wraparound' bumper looked soooo cool(like a 69 shelby) and the quarters bulge out from the roof(like a 69/70 mustang)...bulging quarters, swept rooflines, flat noses with deeply recessed grilles...oh yeah

Here What A Shooting Brake Is, If You Don't Know.

A "shooting brake" is basically a British (sort of) invention: back in the 70s, Aston Martin introduced a "shooting brake" version of some of their models. A car with such a denomination could be best described by a mix between a station wagon and a sports car. If I remember well, I believe the concept behind this type of car is that those British gentlemen with fat bank accounts wanted to have a vehicle they could use for their hunting trips without having to sacrifice the pleasure of driving a sports car and from this the "shooting brake" was born (at least Aston Martin produced some, I don't know if other manufacturers did some). I believe it was pretty much shortlived, but I am not completely sure of this.

This said, I personally do not like the idea of a Mustang Shooting Brake as I don't like this type of vehicle. Though the photoshop version made by cww is extremely remarkable, it looks like made by a pro.
So, congrats to cww for his job, but I personally don't like the idea.

I am Swiss. I bought a Mustang and I love it.
What's the problem with this guy being German ? Does someone need to be American to understand the Mustang ? Come on, be serious.

That's for sure, the guy who headed up the 05 redesign is Vietnamese.
