  1. Looking forward to photos and videos when anyone has time to post them.
  2. About the gas guzzler tax, since Ford has not released any test numbers on mileage, I wonder if it will assessed. Maybe theere is another reason for the seven speed auto as a way to get the better mpg numbers. Thoughts?
  3. Yup, Polar Vortes, Bomb Cyclone... One person uses the term and it spreads faster and crazier than the weather itself. We are experiencing Enhanced Solar Weather here and no one is making an issue of i except to go to the beach and enjoy it.
  4. Obviously not an original or continuation series series Cobra. At least the ad states that it is a "replica', though other than the body shape, there is nothing from a real cobra that it replicates.
  5. Nice TRD. The color matches the TRD coil over shocks!
  6. Nasty storm. Glad you are okay. Is that the front end of a Fox Mustang next to truck?
  7. I have found mine at Orielly auto parts. I keep one in the car and another at home.
  8. If your going to feed your pets that much at least add some flavored syrup and give them a spoon.
  9. Seeing the numbers that SA gets out of the 5.0 Coyote, these higher numbers are plausible with the more advanced engineering on the new 5.2 version plus the supercharger size. But since there is a delay in the release of the GT500 and probably more testing needed to avoid problems, I will content to sit and wait for the official numbers. Must stuff like these videos and reports happen with every one of an about to be released special performance model car, be it a Dodge, Corvette or Ford.
  10. Still trying to confirm authenticity. Said to be from a Ford employee, but considering secrecy clauses, not sure about it. It seems to be circulating without verification with performance stats and prices. Not wanting to continue a possible fake news report, I will wait before posting more .
  11. Seeing the just posted possible 802 HP rating, I cannot wait for the independent testing by the media!
  12. Ah, yes, those Cherry bombs would send mothers running out to the front yard to grab their kids when that santanic noise on wheels came by. I put them on my nice new 67 Cougar XR7 as I wanted dual exhaust and that is all that would fit. Trouble is, they would corrode and rust withing a couple of years back then and blow the glass shreds right out. BTW, I am the fourth owner (since 1982) of my 66 GT350. First owner was an Airforce owner who bought it from the Ford delaer in Colorado. He liked to do night oulaw drags in his 63 327 Corvette (probably 350 hp) and was doing well until these white Mustangs with blue stripes started blowing him off the road. So he traded his 'Vette (I affectionately call them "Tupperware" Chevys, but only to the local Corvette Club members) for a nice, new sapphire blue with white stripes GT350, which I now still own (but added a period correct option, a 66 Paxton supercharger). Back to topic. love your Hot Wheels collection. I have only HW early Mustangs, Shelbys and Cobras.
  13. Better connection: Dean Moon (Moon Eyes Racing) owned the small shop where the first Cobra, CSx2000, was put together by "shel and his team. Also, glass pack mufflers were the exhaust used on the 65-66 Shelby GT350 to scare the Corvettes out of the way.
  14. Unless they are DOT approved, you can get cited for having them on the car while it is in motion, even in the daytime, in many States. So the demand dropped and so did the manufacturing for many models of cars.
  15. The move away from manual transmissions to AT in performance cars has been going on with the exotics out of europe for some years. Ferrai, Lamborghini, Maserati, McClaren and other high horsepower toys do not have manuals, just paddle shifter auto. Porsche still has a stick, for now. But then there is the American muscle car and that is a different story to old time purists. They feel betrayed like the Ferrari fans were after 2011 when those cars dropped the manual. One point of view/explanation that I found: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-06-17/why-can-t-you-get-your-300-000-supercar-with-a-stick-shift
