More than a few comments have posted on this board about the excessive size and weight of the current Mustang. I believe Rob used the term bloated. I rather like it's retro styling, and don't share that feeling, but it does seem ready for being refreshed. -- Doug

Yep. Dat b me!

I'd like to see the Mustang around the size of an A4. Keep all the styling cues you like, but dump the high cowl and hood. Some decent rear visibility wouldn't hurt either. When driving one, I feel like I'm sitting in a tub and trying to peer over the top. Definitely not a sports car experience. (Comparing it to my old Corvette and my son's 240SX.... or even my old 1980 Mustang).

None of the corrective actions are going to happen while it's on the current platform. They're stuck with the high front end so they can package those engines up there and the high cowl is considered a platform element.
