Often thought Ford should have gone with a more aggressive front grille design for the 351 Boss. What do you think?

Thanks for selecting one of the images or posting your own.

No Mustangs at the moment.
It would look even better if it is sitting in my garage.

no 3 with the pony bars added. Also is this actually your car? If so what are the rim and wheel details? Any mods to related equip to fit?

I like #3 a lot, however the original design is pretty cool. The thing I would have done differently is that, instead of the amber lamps in the grille being just decorative, I would have had them be operable amber driving lights, maybe with a separate switch to operate like the fog lamp switch on earlier cars.

I like 'em all

Here's a pic with an Aussie falcon GT grille, considering it for my coupe but at $800 for a grille might reconsider

"Often thought Ford should have gone with a more aggressive front grille design...."

-I wanted something more mean looking too, which is why I changed my front end to look like this.  I've always liked the '73 grill, so I adapted one to my '71 and made my version of a "cobra" grill.  I used thin gauge metal to block off the inner lamps, then covered them in a silver carbon fiber.  I left the trim off the grill to give a blacked-out look, then capped it off with LED headlamps.  Much more aggressive than OEM I think ;)
