Early meeting Monday AM... so I better get this one going now, cuz I won't have time tomorrow morning.

So anyway... real or model? And yes, I did Photoshop out the license plate... I don't want to give you guys an obvious clue! :)

There are clues to indicate either way, so I am going with my gut level feeling, real.

Welp, it COULD be an Otaki 1/12th scale model of one of the UGLIEST Mustangs ever made, or it COULD be a REAL version of one of the UGLIEST Mustangs ever made.Hate to hurt Envious's feelings, but 71 on up, they ceased to be "Pony cars" AND attractive! The 70's were NOT kind to the Mustang! 70 was the LAST year they were attractive for that decade!!! :blink: And to me, the headlights are what make it look REAL to me! ;):D;)

George, You just certified that you are crazy :lol: 69-73 are my favorite for the fastbacks. Coupes not so much but the fastbacks YES. I even liked the Mustang II fastbacks. I'd drive the wheels of off one.

I feel the Mustang died in 1987. I never have liked the euro style lights on the 1987-1993 and don't care for the body style on 1994-current.

Model......

There is NO weight on the tires. :lol:

Probably because it is a show car now and is driven on and off a trailer. Or all the weights are on the inside of the wheels so that chrome doesn't get messed up.

You misunderstand my comment...

The tires are not bulging under the weight of the car...

I'm a 1964-1/2 to 1973 Mustang nut. I know a real when I see it. :lol:

As far as I know, no one makes the new BFG radial T/A's in scale. That is one of the major give aways for me :lol:

If a license plate is blocked out, I'm saying real to this one. Usually you wouldn't care about license plate on a model. Mentioning something being obvious or not, usually means it is. :lol:

I say real on this one!

I want to say "model" because of the hood lines, but I'm going with "real".

In response to George: If you thought this was bad, just take a look at the '74 Mustang.
