  2. New 2021 GT500 Second Drive Impressions

    Chris2020Gt350: Great and informative response to my comments. I am torn between a GT500 and ZR1 (both great cars) to add to my 2019 GT350, a well balanced car with very responsive handling dynamics. At least I now have automatic and manual cars representing different characteristics - before...
  3. Testing the Water to Sell my 2020 base for a New 2021/2022 CFHP

    Sounds like you are lucky to have a dealer like you describe. After you get your confirmation would appreciate knowing who they are. Can't find any comparable positive dealer here in the Northeast - just gougers. Just saw your post after getting back from Amelia Island Concours where I wasd...
  4. GT350 Base vs. R Wheel Studs

    If I understand correctly the wheel studs on an R are longer than on a Base. What are the reasons for this, and can the R carbon wheels be mounted on a base ? If the wheels themselves fit, are the studs between the two cars different, and if so, must R wheel lugs be used ?
  5. South Carolina Automotive Authority 19" Spare Tire kit for Brembo Cars

    Is the front wheel spacer included ?
  6. New 2021 GT500 Second Drive Impressions

    Informative writeup. Later comments from others regarding seat comfort, as opposed to appearance, is 100% subjective and has context only as a reader matching the writers size and weight. I changed my C7 Z06 seats to a set of 100% Italian leather (every surface/all sides), a clone of a Ferrari...
  7. Carbon Fiber wheels on a non-R Model GT350

    I have a 2019 GT350. I thought I had seen something about R-Models having longer wheel studs. Irrespective, can I mount GT350R factory carbon fiber wheels on a non-R Model GT350 ? And, I'm guessing that unique lug nuts are also involved ?
  8. California FS: 2019 GT350R Factory Carbon Fiber Wheels and Tires

    $7,000, but I suspect a scam and even if accepted the deal is a long way from being confirmed and concluded.

  11. 1st Mods on 2020 GT500

    Not familiar with your reference to "rear subframe lockouts", i.e. purpose, vendor, and installation
  12. Prices are on the rise......

    I was actually going to buy a 1969 Roadrunner, with the hemi. The problem was, given my age, to say the insurance was high would be an understatement, plus I lived in NYC. So you get the picture. I bought the Z28 at Baldwin Chevrolet in Baldwin, LI, jus down the road from Motion Performance...
  13. Prices are on the rise......

    Thought I might add more the "prices are on the rise" discussion. I did write earlier about the '66 GT350 I bought during the big price drop in 1966. Here's a few items for serious thought. Some may not believe the following, but it's 100% true. a) In 1969 I bought a 1969 Z28 for $4K b In 1989...
  14. Prices are on the rise......

    Absolutely. Bought a 1966 GT350 in 2008 when everything collapsed, got a magnificent deal.
  15. Prices are on the rise......

    Maybe, don’t forget the C8 will have a much shorter exhaust system due to it being mid-engine. That would be key factor in the sound.
  16. Prices are on the rise......

    Not so much in this case. Might be the case with Craig Jackson’s 1965 GT350 very late number car. Other than our cars the only other car that will ever have a flat plane crank, with its fantastic sound, will be the future C8 Corvette Z06. Plus, the steam is picking up rapidly for the end of...
  17. Massachusetts GT350 Cup 2 Tires

    Just took off the Michelin Cup2 tires from my 1,700 mile 2019 GT350. Two 295/35-19 and two 305/35-19. No patches. Only street driven. $725, prefer not to ship. Located near Springfield, MA; might drive reasonable distance.
  18. Got deal together for 2020 GT350R - would like some insights

    I didn't mean the CF wheels are fragile in terms of strength. They are fragile in terms of regular street usage occurrences and replacement cost. Even regular wheel damage that would be minimal with aluminum wheels is almost a death kneel for CF wheels. Most any damage to aluminum wheels can be...
  19. Got deal together for 2020 GT350R - would like some insights

    2019 and 2020 non-R models were designed by Ford to be very close to the R models in terms of overall performance. For everyone but the most experienced drivers, other than for an ego purchase, you could save quite a bit of coin by sticking with a non-R. Especially considering the fragility and...
