Thought you guys might be in the mood for some vehicular entertainment. These are not intended to be funny, but if you find them that way, oh well.

My designs:

Cool sounding cars. There is a typo though in the sedan references. Shows maximum speed as 230 mph but the transmission gearing shows max speed on 4-speed AOD as being 130 mph. Just thought you would like to know http://64.21.184.154/ubb/biggrin.gif

UPDATE!

As most have heard, the redesign in 2003 for the mustang will have it sharing the DEW98 platform with the T-bird and Jaguar S-type. This will make the stang longer, wider, and lower. Here's what I propose as the look of this new pony, with stats on my feelings of the 03 SVT Cobra's new 5.0L powerplant:

Cobra, What graphics package or design tool are you using to create these images? Did you just save them as .bmp files for easy viewing or is that a standard file format of your design package.

There's no design package, program, or software, just your standard Paint application found on windows computers since 1993. It's just a .bmp image that I drew from scratch. They take some time to get just right, adding a different color pixel here, removing one there.... I have no templates to draw from, just a blank screen and away I go with lines, curves, and color. Actually, doing the shading takes the longest amount of time; that's why almost all my designs are in red, the colors available are few and no good blue or green shading colors are available.

Now, for some REAL pictures. Is this 12-year old original paint looking good enough for ya?

NO WAX! That's just a 3-day old wash job with a little dust accumulated from 3 days of daily driving. Just imagine what it looks like waxed up! Wait, you don't have to:
