The UK American Car Magazine did a feature on a 72 Mach 1 a few months back and asked if there was any love for the "aircraft carrier" Mustang. Thought I'd pitch in.

No Mustangs at the moment.
Aircraft carrier? Pffffft! A cruiser is a more apt term, being a bit smaller than a carrier, but larger than a oiler...

Multiple Mustangs!
They talk about how big the hoods are on our cars. The BMW Z-3 roadster was so big only one steel mill in the world could make the steel large enough to stamp it in Japan. The hood was also the top of the fenders.

Great you stood up for our herd.

I think it was Larry Shinoda that called it the aircraft carrier.

Someone recently remarked how long the hood is on my '73, but I believe the 1970 - 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo still holds the world record for "longest hood on a production vehicle".

There's all the space up from, but I can hardly get my kids in the back seats. My daughter complains they're "the most uncomfortable back seats in the whole world."

If you check out the Jaguar XJS you will be surprised just how much they are the same. Even down the length of the bonnet
