I agree.  WTF?!  It's missing the devil horns on the roof...
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

I've known about this project for a few months - first time I've seen it.
I guess we'll just have to label it "Stripes Sans Pipes". But that could change........ Ford has already added a soundtrack to the Mach-E.

It's the future - so they say. Those of you who hate it only need to go back to the GLHS for the first taste of the future catching up to the 60s performance we all love.

And it will keep happening......

Just get out and drive our classics and reminisce of the good ol' days.

Remember, we're just caretakers.

Anyone notice this boo boo yet? When did a motor become an engine? Where is the plate located? The motors are at the wheels - is it just under the hood (or is that a frunk? - front trunk) BTW how much does the hood duct cut into the storage space? Seems to me a scoop providing more storage room would have been preferred.

Shelby striping and badging
• Classic “LeMans” over the top racing stripes
• Modern Shelby side stripe badging
• Front and rear “SHELBY” lettering
• CSM Dash badge and engine plate

At least it will not need traction lock.  Just wait until they put in charging stations in the raceway pits for the non-vintage races. Expect that to be a CA mandate anytime now. 8)

And then there is a way to rehab our classic trucks:
https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/cars/2021/11/02/ford-makes-classic-truck-electric-with-mustang-mach-e-gt-features/6255242001/
Actually that's pretty da** cool. Love the kit priced reasonably. Something we need to think seriously about.

And I look at it this way, long after we're gone (and as Caretakers), and all the electric vehicles running around, some of our inheritors will most likely "Electric Kit" our classics so they and their children and children's children can still enjoy them as the physical, true classic car they are, i.e., Sheetmetal, interior, etc.

Because, there won't be any fossil fuels to drive these classics anymore.
