DEARBORN, Mich. Dec. 3, 2004 -- America's muscle car scored a double this month, according to the editors at Car and Driver magazine. In the car buff's January issue, the annual 10Best Cars list honors the 2005 Mustang as the Best Muscle Car. In addition, the January issue features a head-to-head comparison of the Mustang and the Pontiac GTO, and the Mustang comes out the clear winner. Mazda also made the 10Best Cars list with the RX-8 being named the Best Sports Coupe.
Ford has decided to unveil the new 2005 Mustang convertible at the 2005 North American International Auto Show in Detroit from January 15-23, 2005, with actual production scheduled to begin January 31, 2005.
In keeping with Mustang tradition, the new 2005 Mustang convertible still seats four passengers but as you can see from the photos below, the convertible top design has been much improved. Unlike earlier generations of Mustangs where the top folds with underside of the top exposed when the top is down, the new 2005 stang folds in a "Z" like pattern to give a much cleaner and striking appearance. This is one "HOT" looking open air ride, we are all sure to love, especially once the aftermarket industry works their wonders with it!
DENICE HALICKI ASKS COURT TO STOP CARROLL SHELBY FROM BRANDING AND MARKETING HIS LINE OF HIGH-END RETROFITTED FORD MUSTANGS WITH THE NAME "ELEANOR" FROM THE CLASSIC FILM GONE IN 60 SECONDS.
Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords has published an article on the new 2005 Ford Mustang. They put it through its paces and let us know what they think of it:
It's a strange feeling, getting into a Mustang and not recognizing anything. When you drive Mustangs for a living, write about them, photograph them, live and breathe them, you pretty much can get into one blindfolded and still find all the switchgear.

The first thing to capture any viewer's attention is the S281's dramatic styling - boldly new from stem to stern.
Its signature long hood and short rear deck emphasize the Saleen muscle under the bonnet and its traditional rear-wheel drive. Those proportions also give the Saleen a ready-to-launch-itself-down-the-road appearance even when the S281 is standing still.
