    It definitely makes the hood look more proportional.

    Nice work on both chops. It would be a great way to increase sales but not hurt the Mustang nameplate by using either the Quatroporte or Falcon name.

    Rex is the bump and slope in the roof line intentional? Prius/Insight/Volt

    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    Wouldn't happen though. It doesn't fit Ford's design theme for the front. Still we can send you falcons if you want

    I didn't change the hood at all other than the windscreen base is further forward. The strong shadow of the power bulge does look a bit funny given it doesn't line up with the other crease on the hood.

    Here it is without the bulge....

    Re: Falcon/Mustang Quatroporte

    I can't say that I am the biggest fan, as you mentioned, it really isn't your fault, it just looks like the vehicle's face is sliding off. Does it become too Charger-like if you re-integrate the haunches?

    The Mustang should not be stretched into a 4dr & renamed or not to Falcon for anyone or any country!! The Falcon needs its own body design & remain RWD!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    I think the execution is perfect. It oddly looks right. I would like to see a Shelby front end to give it an aggressive stance.

    I think the new Interceptor will be a stretched Mustang chassis

    I like it, but I prefer the Falcon with its own sheetmetal.
