The GTO is a step above pony cars in terms of refinement. A live axle isn't exactly new world suspension technology.
I agree that it should look like a Pontiac (except an Aztek), however, it can be done without imitating anything. Examples are the Vibe and the G6.......they look like Pontiacs, yet not like any other Pontiac.
I agree the Goat is a refined car. However, a live axle is cheaper, more reliable, and a better suited to the drag strip. And, Car and Driver says that the Mustang rides nearly as well as a GTO ( http://www.caranddriver.com/article....rticle_id=8908
). It all boils down to if you want to autocross (IRS) or drag (live axle).
Just food for thought.......
