    Took my slightly modified 2011 Shelby to the strip last week and borrowed a set of M&H drag radials and turned a 11.4 at 124 mph at test and tune. ;)

    Nice set of wheels. Haven't been in a Mustang since we blew the second motor on a 69 Mach I. That was in 74. Gave up on it after that. It was a 351. Had a 4 barrel carb, long duration cam, 4 speed on the floor, jacked up in the back with wide azz tires. Gets 11.4? I fhought we were doing good in the low 12s back then

    Just went back to my stock 65 Merc Comet Caliente after that with a stock 289. Coulldn't afford blown engines while going to college. Wish I still had the Comet. Guy I sold it to wrapped it around a tree the first week he had it.:D

    I wish I could but being disabled/retired does not leave much money to buy much of anything. If it were not for my hitting the Bingo scratch off for 15K once I would have a lot less guns to play with when I can squeeze the money for.

    I love the Mustang. That's one of my "when I grow up" cars.

    Is it a kit?

    A friend has one of the small [mid 80's I think] Cobras. I call it a glorafied pinto and he hates that. So when he posted a pic of it on FB I altered the pic so it read pinto. Man did he get upset.

    Nope, not a kit but a genuine production model, mines a 2011.

    Carroll Shelby is turning over in his grave right now.

    Before I asked I asked a friend of mine if that was insulting. He said "Naw, I think most of the Shelby's are kit cars now.".

    I'm going to give him hell a little later.

    He was probably thinking about the Shelby AC Cobra which there are kits for now.

    The Shelby GT500 Mustang is in full production and the 2013 model has 662 hp.
