1971 Ford Mustang

 For some reason, I've always really liked the design of the 1971 Mustang. the Fastback version.
(Wich remained pretty much the same until 1973)
I just love that simple, straight line from the top of the windshield all the way to the end of the car.

Sure, it was a "big 1970's" car. But I don't care. ( I actually like many 70's designs...)
It was the last one before the Pinto based small Mustang 2 that everyone hates.

Here are some of the earlier prototypes for the 71 redesign.
I think the production car ended up better, for once.

Ok, I understand being sentimental, and some hard-core "enthusiasts" driving at 100 mph to the supermarket may get angry, BUT, these original designs were FUGLY.
