They still have the Boss for 2013? I'm scared for the 2015s, I don't want to lose the 2010 restyle's look.
Yeah, they still have it for 2013.  Basically the same as the 2012 except with different decals.  I actually saw a pair at the local dealer not to long ago.  I'm with you.  I hope the 2015 models don't change to much but the current fusion and Taurus line up suugest ford is probably going with the "Aston Martin" look.

I do love where Ford is going with styling. Cars that normally don't get noticed like the Fusion and Focus have become awesome looking machines. They got some backlash from the Aston Martin look on the Fusion, but I don't think it was intentional, I think it just wound up like that. Ford has been putting a mean look on pretty much everything, so I'm confident that the new Mustang will look good, Its just that the 2010-2014 is my perfect car, and I don't want it to go away. Also, I hope they keep the V8. I know they're pushing their EcoBoost V6 and will push it more with the 2015, and its a great engine, but its just something about having a V8.

Agree, the 2015 mustang will more than likely look good.  Reports say it is getting a lot smaller because it will now be sold in the uk.  Poor saps will get stuck with a twin turbo four cylinder.

I used to own a chrome yellow 1990 SVT Cobra with a Vortec super charger, with forged pistons, TKO transmission and the works.  It used to push out 500HP at the rear wheels at 7K RPM.  I wish I still had pics of it.  I really loved that car but when I turned 30 my wife made me get rid of it. :(  She said my car was too loud. LMAO
Now I drive a MB SLK350 with a AMG sport package after a few BMW's before this one.  I wish I kept my cobra.......................................

Yeah I had that dyno'd at a local SVT dealership.
I had a 4:10 in the rear and with 500HP at the wheels going from red light to red light was FUN!  It was a grocery getter. LMAO Used to buy a new set of tires every 3 months and they weren't the cheap one either. LOL

I'm a huge car nut. I'm not a country or era specific fan. If it looks good I like it. My current car is a damn KIA forte lol. Got in a bad motorcycle accident and the bills were adding up so I went for cheap with gas mileage. Before that I had a Cobalt SS S/C with Injen intake, larger injectors, Spec stage 2+ clutch, magnaflow exhaust, custom tune and smaller pulleys. Oh and Eibach springs and sway bar. It was a great track car that both myself and my dad enjoyed racing more than his 911 GT3. Before the Cobalt I had a Chevrolet Trailblazer SS. Now this was the ultimate grocery getter. We owned a Chevy dealership at the time and we had some really fast cars. My TB had a K&N intake, Yank 3200 stall converter, MTI Heads and Cam, Magnaflow Exhaust and Custom tune. For some reason from the factory it dyno'd 336 rwhp. Which is a lot of power lose considering its a 400hp motor. After the work it put out 423 rwhp. This was also with a mild cam and Patriot dual gold valve train springs. I later added a 150 wet shot of nitrous. It never ran right so I removed the nitrous. With only the stall the car ran a 13.1 1/4 mile. After the heads cam work it ran a 12.6 sec 1/4 mile. This was also with MT drag radials on 16 in wheels. The truck looked weird with 20's in the front lol. About a year after all the work was complete one of my valves springs broke and it bent 2 push rods and put a quarter sized hole in my #5 cylinder head. The cheapest way to fix the engine was to bore and stroke it :) I traded it in after that and never got numbers from the new set up. I'll try and find some pics of the 2 cars.

Thank you sir. My dad had a Silver and a white GT3. The trailblazer was silver with eibach springs in the front to lower it 1 1/4". The rear suspension comes with airbags from the factory so that was easy to lower.
