    A friend of mine street races in STL with a Ford Flex V-6 ecoboost. Says he will beat anything with street tires.

    Watched that when it came out. We were visiting Grandma and Grandpa in Silverton, Oregon. It's 175 miles from where we lived. The town has a church on every corner.. I got nervous every time we went there. :eek::D
    We saw another movie there. It was a guy running a white Mopar car of some sort across the state. Cops on his tail and a black radio announcer kept popping in giving him updates over the airwaves in code about where the cops were. The movie ended with him running full throttle into the blade of a large bulldozer the cops put in the road as a road block.
    The name escapes me............
    No, no... Vanishing Point. They used to make some good car movies............... back in the day.

    I never knew Shelby had this offering......................... shazaaaaaam! This is from 2012. I saw a local 500GT for sale for $38,000 and started researching, then found this.

    https://www.motortrend.com/cars/ford/mustang/2012/2012-shelby-1000-and-1000-sc-first-look/
    "If you already own a 2012 Ford Shelby GT500 and would like to get it converted to Shelby 1000 spec, it'll set you back $149,995. If you'd like Shelby to supply the GT500, expect to pay at least $200,000, depending on options."

    I did a job a few weeks ago and the guy had a nice 69’ Camaro.
    He said it was around 350 hp and got 8 miles per gallon
    His son has this new Camaro... it has over 800 hp and 650 hp to the wheels ... And gets 25 mpg

    8 MPG............ I could give him a tuneup and bring it up to 10. :D
    Amazing what they have done to te hp/mileage figures. I'm not a Ford guy,but I wouldn't mind a GT.
