Hey Cali, I know you now have a 2008 KR along with the '68. Money aside which car do you like better? Can you explain the pros and cons of each car. I thought about buying a black '68 to go with my 2008 KR but Its a lot of coin and I'm afraid I would be disappointed. I'd appreciate any input you may have.

Hey SVT,

as i get older, and my body is starting to breakdown, the comfort and convenience of the new cars cannot be beat, plus they out perform any old car exponentially...that being said, there is a certain viseral experience with the vintage that cannot ever be acheived with a new gen car.

Your question is tough to answer because I'm not in your shoes....for me, I absolutely love the car and feel very blessed to have had it as long as i have, and when i do take her out, it is always with a broad smile, not only on my face, but the people on the street love to see her too..on the flip side, I often wrestle with the fact that I really want a FordGT, and If I sold thie '68, I'd get one right now....my wife and kids all say keep the '68

I own an older car "65 and I, too, drive it with a broad smile on my face and people on the street love to see it, too! You always have choices in life and can do what ever you want to, but I think that with the wife and kids saying to keep the '68, I would listen to them. If I had to choose, I would pick the '68 over the GT any day. Just my opinion.

Tom, keep the bookend otherwise you will just have a KR. That being said, a GT would also be nice.

Thanx Michael, I did triailer her to Bash #1, thought it appropriate as SAI & Ford were unveiling the 2008 KR at that event. And won an award with her at the car show!
