I finally saw them! The 05 Mustangs! And three of them at the same time! I saw them traveling west on I-94 just east of St. Joesph, Michigan. Unforetunatly I only got a quick glimpse since I was going the other way, but the first one was lime green and appeared to be a GT (foglights). The second one was a beautiful medium blue color. And the last one was jet black. But from the quick glimpse that I got, the last one appeared to have dual stripes in the middle of the car! I couldnt help but think it was a shelby prototype, although it probally wasnt. Wow, I couldnt believe it when i saw them. They are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO awesome looking. If you guys havent seen them in person yet, you hvae to. They are sooooo cool.

Wow I didn't think they were being let out on the road yet. Are they already being sold out there in Az? I would love to buy the Ivygold 2005 to match my Ivygold 65.
........I'll keep dreaming now.

Any Canadian sightings? I have been cruising by the local Ford dealerships regularily thinking one of these days I'll see one displayed out front. No luck yet.

In person they still have the same size/dimensions of todays Mustang. Quite a larger(deeper/taller) side body though. I think most non-Mustang people will just say 'so what' when they do come out.

I've seen them 3 or 4 times, each time still in camo. A couple weeks ago I saw one as I was crossing the street. Unfortunately the light turned green so I couldn't run up to it and take a closer look. :) Another time I saw 2 on the 101 in North Hollywood.

So when is the Boss 302 coming out? ::

My guess as to what you're seeing are the "sign-off" cars. It's normal to have each group like NVH, ride and handling, powertrain, etc. do a final drive of the production calibrations and sign off on the job before production starts.

We had one of the early prototype GT's in St. Louis back in May as part of the 40th Anniversary Tour and they let us sit in it and get our picture taken in it. Me likes! Even SWMBO thought it was a sweet package. She even said I could get a '05 but it would have to be when the 2010's came out. Better late than never.
