  1. That was my first thought as well. Maybe a super duper snake?
  2. Looks like maybe an unknown Dukes of Hazzard remake? Looks like at least he cleared the fence!
  3. https://autoweek.com/article/car-news/c8-corvette-be-officially-revealed-july-18
  4. Yeah, Ford was supposed to go lighter on the S550 as I recall, and we all know how that turned out. So our next Mustang can be super-sized, electrified or soccer mom flavor?
  5. And on the new Mustang front... https://www.automobilemag.com/news/next-ford-mustang-details-on-sale-info/
  6. For any interested in getting one of their own... https://fairfieldcollectibles.com/2015-shelby-gt-mustang-1-18-scale-diecast-model-by-gt-spirit.html?email=2361&utm_source=FT20190324A&coupon=&sourcecode=FT20190324A&utm_medium=email&utm_content=dynamic&utm_campaign=FT20190324A&link=2
  7. Had a '69 Q-code Grande' (one of 29) for a number of years, and one thing it had in spades was torque. It felt like it twas going to rip the asphalt off the ground. As far as Woodward, one legendary car that I did get to see there on display when I went in 2007 was the Silver Bullet, a car that was built and refined over the years on the street through street racing. https://www.dragzine.com/features/car-features/muscle-cars-you-should-know-67-hemi-plymouth-gtx-silver-bullet/ For all you gearheads, if you want to see the coolest and most bizarre story in automobiledom, check out Autobiography on the Motor Trend channel tonight. they're going to do the 'lost' Daytona story. I don't know how detailed it's going to get, but for those that know the story about the former Phil Spector car, it's incredible. https://www.cnn.com/style/article/shelby-daytona-cobra-coupe/index.html
  8. Real. Very real. A Mustang you'll be able to take 6 of your closest friend with you to the retirement home. Extension cord optional.
  9. This is a car I had a hand in designing and building for SEMA in 2004, One of the most unique things we did was crack upon the headlight buckets and apply a layer of tinted film that became clear when an electric current was introduced. So, when the lights were turned on, the light covers became clear. I sat in the car for hour during the SEMA show amazing passers by simply by flipping the lights on and off and seeing their reaction. That part of the build was one thing I did not participate in so I don't know the technical side of it, and the discussion about offering it to the public ended with the uncertainty about its legality.
  10. And the hits just keep on coming... https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/cars/2019/03/14/ford-mustang-electric-ford-teases-new-car-same-time-tesla-event/3170965002/
  11. I was more impressed that the manual rate was in the 20+% percent range. I hope that's true, and I hope that we continue to see three pedal cars for a long time. But you have to remember that such mighty publications such as C&D have the last say in all things automotive, like when they gave the Pontiac Phoenix their highest recommendations. (Of course, who can forget the twin Chevy Citation and its mighty HO660 V6 engine. Everyone, I guess)
