1 of our better customers, yrs ago, & was a wealthy business owner who inherited the family business. In his 60s.

Thx for the pic. A nice way to bring a smile to an ole man's face!
Calling this veh Nice appears to be an understatement.
When he switched <Mad Dog>(racin Prostk) from the T/Coupe to the Probe in the Rells '88 & the car in '89. Comparing both the tunnel @martin, the Probe was worse- C/D...
If I wasn't on such a cash burn doing stuff for my wife ( & myself)-
ie: hm & property improvements.
I'd put it bk together, as its sitting atop 1 of my several chassis jig tables, & finish a 385 series midplate (already hav the front motorplate) & go Nostalgia Pro Stock Racing w/it.
No snow or ice for us. Been caught in rain a few times. Once going for install of my ppf & cermic coating. Detailer is top notch & appointments are difficult.
I generally avoid rain w/ 7 or 8 titled and insured vehicles.
I wrk from hm mostly in my shop anyhow.
Regardless of trying to...
I believe James, who did the Steeda Bullitt Tune, had conveyed to us that a Bullitt w/a stk GT350 INTAKE, on E85 - W/his tune, & the Cotton type filter.
(& possibly headers added too .. if my memory serves me, & removal of rev limiter w/tune.)
All of these item's.. combined.. on a...
Sports cars never had back seats..
For about ~6 decades.
Now they do?
Next thing I suppose,
they'll be telling us Shelby's are race cars.

Id like to disagree w/u.
Yet its popularity among enthusiasts of past veh production is un-denyable.
I had a '79 Cobra turbo Fox car decades ago. No need to revisit that for myself -personally.
No denying a small finge group see it as the muscle car they grew up with it seems.
Absolutely great story & he is a beautiful animal.
Congratulations on rescuing such a wonderful looking dog.
excellent pics btw.
Nuthin beats a great pet & lifelong loyal friend like u hav there,...
& of coarse a great car in ur life too.
I find, both can bring a lot of joy.
The Bullitt seems to hav some sounds on deceleration. Some say its only cuz of the GT350 intake/& larger TB.
Some hav said Ford Engineers claim to hav designed this unique pop/crackle/burble into the pkg...??
What ever the phluck people wanna call it.
Its there. Its unique. No idea how a...
This is a huge "reach" based on what ur very logical statement shines lite on.
Is it even possible that the ~8 yr Drought,
of Camaro's & in past,
(& the Firebird / Trans Am crowd drought)
somehow has orhad an effect on the sales going forward-post 2002?
Like I said. Its a real reach. But...
Its no longer a marketing secret to use a British accent to sophisticate & item & sell it as well. That said.
The subliminal planting of "Mack"
burned into our minds over & over..
Does not quite convey what the Mock 1 is, nearly as easily as something like~~~
Its Bullitt w/a...
Long before the internet. Article was wrote in a news paper bout the last verbally spoken words dying people tend to say.
2 vastly diff types of dying.
Slow & immediate.
Slow death = cancer
Immediate death = plane crash

We ran 13.0's w/a 2.0L pinto in 1973. Race. Ar yes.
All steel but hood. Yes.
Here are 10 -
1960s muscles cars that all made 400-500 hp.
These car owners would have given anything for 6spd trannys & tires 2x as wide as these NON RADIAL JUNK TIRES.
SO TO SAY THESE IDIOT LIDS W/GT350 in video had their hands full HP wise compared to today. Isnt stupid.
Just to young &...

We had 350hp & 425hp cars when I was in High school..

Several vette enthusiasts were cops & wondering how the phuck...
As long as there has been fast cars around..
Also been Parents and grandparents around willing to foot the bill's for idiot offspring they love.. even if its letting them just mooch to use all their $$ to pay for a car like this.
I suppose its not entirely their fault. Somebody paying the tab...
You'll pay nearly a 1/3 of what it costs just to buy the car attached to it. You'd probably better off just buying a brand new 500, yank the motor, then part out the rest of the car and sell as
