    Yes, I always delete it manually from every response to avoid said clutter. That and I believe proselytizing should also be the choice of the recipient...

    Not to nitpick, but I don't like that the studio pics shown have a car with what looks like may be a slight gap problem with the hood. Behind the passenger's headlight, you can see the hood line disappear, as if the bumper were higher at this point. I'd just be curious how the production cars will be like, since the bumper cover wraps around and lies with 2/3 of the hood, which is a lot of area to control on a flexible body panel, whereas the 5th gen like most cars, only had the front edge to worry about alignment. This large flat span of bumper cover concerns me as well. It seems like an ideal part for people to lean on, and eventually stretch and warp. The nose of the 4rd gen Camaros come to mind, as people used to sit on and lean against the nose section, which would create an inward concave you frequently see on those cars.

    Just details a guy who does paint and body notices. I'm not knocking the car, just an observation.

    But I will knock the rearend. Don't really feel the back bumper at all. Taillights I'll have to see better detail pics of. Front end isn't bad, just don't care for the radical cutback of the hood.

    I disagree with this plus the comment you were responding to.

    From 1967-69, both the Camaro and Firebird were distinct - they shared the same platform, but that was about it. The Firebird had completely different engines, and Pontiac engineers tweaked what was handed to them to make the Firebird even more distinct.

    This pretty much continued into the late-1970s.

    The Mustang and Cougar were twins under the skin through 1973 aside of some things like wheelbase, but no one in their right mind would gather production info for both and use the info as "FoMoCo's pony car output" because the cars were still distinct and appealed to different demographics. The same could be said for the Barracuda and Challenger, but I feel they almost competed against each other compared to Ford and GM's pony cars.

    I did - changes nothing...

    It's still clutter that nobody else has.

    It's still uncalled-for proselytizing that should be the choice of the recipient...

    It kinda' depended on model year. The hood was often different, but the "core"of the car was usually identical with the exception of lamps/grilles etc.

    Kinda hard to say.
    Because the original pics CNBC used weren't very good.

    But I think it's a gray-green color.

    This is incorrect.

    Let me rephrase. The "core", if defined as platform (heck, they are both F bodies until 5th gen). And many of the pieces will interchange, but won't match unless you change out all off the associated pieces. Lamps/grills, etc. sells the cars short.

    Both the first two Cougars and the Fox Capri had relationships with the Mustang akin to the Camaro/Firebird.

    The 79-86 Mercury Capri was basically a rebadged Mustang as much as the Firebird was a rebadged Camaro. Different front and back, some modifications to sheet metal and interior...voila!

    Err, no. They shared parts, yes. But there are differences. First and second generation cars mostly had different engine line ups. They also use surprisingly few common body panels for cars that look similar. Third gen cars are even more differentiated looks wise, sharing doors, roof and glass. Front and rear clips are different as are significant part a of the interior. Fourth gen are similar that way.

    Fox Capris are for more similar to same year Mustangs. Early Cougars are more differentiated, but share almost all the mechanicals and platform (albeit with a longer wheelbase). About the same amount of difference between a late third gen Trans Am and IROC.
