Should I go vertical tail lights? Right now I've got a chance to pick up a set of 98 tail lights in white for very cheap. I always wanted a set. Should I get them. For reference, these are the ones that are on the car right now.

And these are the ones I'd like to get.

Get them if you're getting them cheap. Don't forget the harness.
I got a set of the newer ones just for a "refresher", but have kept the originals safely tucked away. I really like the verticals now and probably won't go back.

Side note: why is that a ricer question?

I'm different from most. So many people are switching to verticals that it seems everyday there is less and less that show what they are.

The horizontals were only 2 years and to me represent the last of the true "5.0"s.

I feel proud myself to still sport horizontals.

Just my $.02

changed my 95 to verticals
I always liked them and they seem brighter
although mine are black on an opal frost car
I like that look
never liked the body colored look, seems too "George Barris" to me
IMHO

BTW i didn't have to change the harness,
can someone explain why that is always brought up?
my light sockets just pulled out of the old and into the new

My mamma said that vertical tail lights on a 5.0 Mustang is the devil!

I like them both. Personally, The only way I would switch to verticals is if they were sequential.
If you can pick them up for cheap, do it.

Well you could consider this, Ford got so much hate mail that they switched to verticals in '96.

I think most prefer the verticals because the lens is clear and looks cleaner. Maybe if the 94/95 has a clear lens with the jeweled look people would like them more.
