|1970 Ford Mustang Boss|
I am not sure I like the overbite the hood has over the bumper. The tires on these older cars always look too big to my eye. Also the windshield sticks up more abruptly than modern cars making it boxy looking--back in the day it would not have seemed that way.
I would have expected the new 2011 Mustang to be lighter because of lighter weight sheet metal and plastic parts, but not really. The 2011 car is faster, gets twice the gas mileage, and has a smaller, more powerful engine.

One thing that was better about the 1970 Mustang was the price; it started at $5000, and the new model has a base price of $30495.
