Shelby look for your new 'Stang

The only quibble I have with the new Mustang GT -- and it's a really small one -- is the set of oversized driving lights mounted in the grille. I tend to prefer the smaller, more retro-looking ones seen on the Pony Package-equipped V6 models. While perusing Planet Mustang, however, I saw something that changed my mind about the big lights. Street Scene Equipment is selling a replacement grille for 2005 and newer Mustangs that takes the GT-sized driving lights and centers them in the manner of some late-60s Shelby Mustangs.

Granted, installing the new grille will result in the loss of your stock pony badge, but that's easily rectified by installing an offset pony as seen above. The car depicted is actually a V6 owned by one Tom Rasada, who details the installation at 4.0 Collective.

V6, V8, whatever -- this grille is a nice customization that looks as if it came directly from the factory. Check out Planet Mustang for more specifics.
