It's funny, with the CS6 and my GT-500 parked side by side I've had many people walk right past the GT-500 like it was a Pinto just to get a closer look at this one.
I sort of chuckle to myself every time that happens just because of the bad rap and lack of respect the CS6 / CS8 cars seem to be branded with in certain circles.
At this years (2010) International Mustang Meet I was classed together with modified GT500's, KR's and Supersnakes - I thought my little CS6 stood no chance at all. However my car had a crowd around it all day long and I think I answered the same few questions about it a hundred times or so "so it's a GT500?", "a six? really?"(laughable when the hood was open all day), "how much power does it have?", "where did you buy it?" (easier to show the build pics than explain that one...lol), "did you drive it here?".
To my surprise the little car that could beat out the more expensive competition, followed by a Supersnake and a modded GT500. The Supersnake owner next to me summed it up quite well I think by saying that all the other cars were basically bought as is whereas mine was built to spec and carried more character as a result.
