I could make room for one in my garage but it would have to be something besides blue.

One major problem though. The family "banker" said, "Fit in the garage, h@#$, it wont fit in the budget" :pain: :pain:

These cars are great, but can you imagine the insurance premiums on that monster.

lt1silverhawk 11-15-2011 08:16 AM

Oh I agree. Sixty grand plus the insurance puts it well into the luxury car range. A very high performance bargain, no doubt, but its definitely out of range for a lot of us. But still, its kind of nice to be able to live during the modern day horse-power wars. I imagine folks back in the 60's and early 70's drooled over the originals the same way I do now over the day modern-day versions. :D

Too cool! Now if I had an extra 60 grand laying around, one of those would be in my garage, if nothing else to cheese my diehard Chevy pals. There will be a few of them wrecked, you can count on that, drive-train and parts in an older car would be a blast.

That would be a sweet transplant in older Ford. I'd like to see one in a '66 / '67 Fairlane. That car has gorgeous lines.



On a related note, Chevy posted the following info on its Facebook today: "Camaro ZL1 by the Numbers: 3.9 Seconds, 184 mph, $54,995"

new cars are boring... :rolleyes:

And so the pony car war rages on... Where you at Dodge?

Chevy's response to the 2013 GT500: "Camaro ZL1 Chief Engineer says "You're Welcome" to Ford Mustang fans".

Depends on which new cars. I have a 2011 CTS-V, with the 6 speed stick, and you might be surprised how well 556 hp will move 4250 lbs. But it is the cornering that is plain amazing, I've never driven any car that corners as well AND gives a very comfortable ride. No harshness like other cars that can crank and bank. This car is almost as fun to drive as the Track-T.

What happened to the electric and/or Smart car that you were talking up last week?

Shelby's celebrating it's 50th anniversary with a limited edition 950-1000 hp Cobra. With a $200,000 price tag.


"Thread of the Day: Is $ 200K Too Much for a 950-HP Shelby 1000 Mustang?"
