Get super rich and buy the prototype. End of debate. Another debate here I always thought of the early vipers as Shelby's due to Shelby creating them opposed to mustangs that were created by someone else and later improved by Shelby making a not all mustangs being Shelby's scenario. I love Shelby's cars but I like the tiger because of Get Smart and if I owned one wouldn't really care what somebody else labeled it.

I only drove a Tiger once w the 289.  A friend of my Mom had one.  He also had a Humber.  Both were fun, but I got to take the Tiger out for a run and kicked the ass of a 66 hopped up Chevy.  All i remember after passing the Chevy was all of the papers floating around in the back seat...when you got going really fast air would come into the cabin as the c-top didn't seem to fit really well.  It was a blast though, and always thought they were a very cool car.  My first car was a 63 Fairlane coupe with the 260V8.  Memories...
