That Lead Foot Gray looks so good. It was a really tough choice between Avalanche and Lead Foot. Absolutely gorgeous.My July issue isn't here yet! Now I can't wait!
I always wanted a 911. I bought a 996 a few years ago (and you would think THAT was the Yugo of 911's based on the bad rep it got in the looks dept, until you drove one). I enjoyed having it for 2 years. I liked driving it - sorta. Once I got used to driving it like a boat (power and steering seemed to both come from the back and it kind of handled like it was on water, precise with full throttle, but floaty all other times). But every time I got out of that and into the GT350, I said THIS is how a car should drive! Powerful, front engine, rear drive, powerful, great brakes, powerful, sounds incredible (I really do not like the sound of a Porsche engine), and most of all, you guessed it, it is powerful! VoooooDooooo black magic. The PCA community has some great people that I'm still friends with, so there is that.
So I sold the Porsche and bought a Cobra replica. THAT is sick! A 347cid with 450hp in 2,200lbs... SICK. Hopping out of that and into the GT350 is, well, it teaches me a lot about differences in life, I'll tell you that. But I do love having two Shelby-inspired cars as stablemates.
I'm much happier now.
