Well, to give you an idea of my perspective, my everyday ride is an Odyssey and my wife drives a Pilot. The build quality of my '06 Mustang GT convertible is not quite that of a Honda but it is pretty good. The interior has too much hard plastic but, heck, most all cars do today! It has the tan interior with the interior upgrade package and the black dash, seat belts, console, and door panel trim contrast nicely with the tan seats and carpet.
How will it hold up in the long run? Undoubtedly quite well for me since it is driven less than 1000 miles per year.
As for the Bullitt - Ford's hit another home run IMHO. It's funny though to think of a car being true to its "heritage" when it stems from a movie.

Curious as to how Ford will build these starting Jan. 08 - in one shot for all 7,700 or piecemeal throughout the rest of the model year ? My guess is that it will be the former , but it'd be nice to hear from someone who has more than just a guess and actual info on this matter straight from Ford.

Bullitts: There is no allocation, Ford is just letting dealers put up orders. SO its likely that there will be a deluge at first which will wane to a trickle until the 7700 number is hit.
Shelby GTs for 08 were built all at once then sent to Los Vegas.
I have a question though for people, whats your preference?

Oh that's a tough one, Mark. Probably green because of the heritage. Black is going to be rarer though, right?

Black, will indeed make for the rarer Bullitt ,color wise.However, when all else is considered, Ford will build far more black Mustangs of this vintage for all models than Highland Green vehicles- (a color which will remain exclusive to the 2008 Bullitt.)
We'll probably have to wait for the collector car auctions 25 years from now as to which 08 Bullitts are bringing the most bucks.

I owned an 85 Dodge Shelby Charger. Reason I brought this up. .98 g's turning.
WHAT? I'm a Ford guy, mostly have been, except for that car. And I would Expect Ford could make a car that would at least match that g force.
