I keep seeing companies come out with kits for the rear of the 2010 cars and I keep shaking my head.

I’m not an automotive designer so logistically I don’t know what is involved with replacing/modifying the existing bumper.

Maybe there are technical limiting factors that do not allow them to change the bumper in any significant way.

BUT if they CAN do something of a replacement bumper I mocked up something in Photoshop.

I don’t know about you guys that don’t like the 2010 and new rears (I don’t care for them) but if they looked like my mock up I’d probably be dying to buy one.

What do you think?

2010 SuperSnake Vid

Here’s some really cool new shots of the 2010 Super Snake!

Not loving the A-Pillar gauges or the plaque placement but the exterior looks pretty sweet… even the back doesn’t look as bad with parts of it painted… still to big though đŸ™‚

New 2010 Saleen

S1These pics still look like they may be renderings of some sort, but I’m not sure.

They could be photos… but either way I think this is definitely my favorite 2010 Mustang design by FAR.

They managed to make the rearend attractive which is quite an accomplishment seeing as no one else has addressed it.

Bravo!

Roush

LIVONIA, Mich. – ROUSH® introduces a pair of new 2010 Mustang models, each with 540 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque ready to be unleashed by the touch of the throttle.

The 2010 ROUSH® Stage 3™ Mustang will once again take its rightful place atop the hierarchy of Jack Roush’s lineup. The vehicle comes fully-loaded with the ROUSH® body components; resonator exhaust; four-piston front brakes with 14-inch rotors and painted rear calipers with slotted rotors; and the new upper billet grille which removes the fog lamps and streamlines the appearance of the new Mustang while improving cooling performance. Interior enhancements include ROUSH® leather seats with an embroidered Jack Roush signature; four-piece performance pedals; ROUSH® illuminated sill plates; short throw shifter with black or white ball; and a new interior Stage 3™ badge with the car’s serial number engraved.

Stop Deluding Yourself!

A while ago I wrote a review about the 2010 Mustang. While I have not had the privilege of driving a 2010 GT500 it does not take away from the fact that the styling cues for much of the car are the same.

There are differences, but specifically I’m talking about the HIDEOUS rearend!

I keep hearing over and over “it will grow on you” or “it’s growing on me,” regarding the ugly black plastic bumper and the squished sides complete with the candy cane LED tail lights and abnormally LARGE faux gas cap medallion.

Seriously that medallion belongs on the end of a chain belonging to 50 cent or something. It is HUGE.

Anyway, I find this whole notion of it “growing on me” odd.

It’s like if someone said, “I really don’t like the color blue!” and the person they said it to responded with, “Well just keep looking at it.. in time you will like it!”

Ummm NO!
For instance, I don’t like asparagus. In fact I HATE asparagus!! BUT I’m sure if I was forced to eat asparagus every single day I would probably not vomit at the thought of eating it after I had ingested it for a few weeks… because my body would become accustomed to it… BUT it doesn’t mean that I would then LIKE asparagus!!

The rear is hideous. H I D E O U S!

BUT that’s the thing when it comes to automotive styling, colors, or –asparagus! Some people like it and some don’t!  You know…different strokes for different folks and all that.

I know it’s hard to believe, but some people LIKE asparagus, doesn’t mean it’s good, just means THEY happen to like it. To the folks that hate it, it does nothing for their opinion of it. And yes some people even LIKE the ass end of the 2010 Mustang… but the same logic follows.

(Long explanation short)— If you like it WONDERFUL, but stop deluding yourself into believing others will like it “in time.”
