All American Swagger - Get Some
By Brad on
2008 Ford Shelby GT500 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)
Comparing this car to fancy exotic sports cars misses the point All have their merits but they are completely different. If this were people it is like comparing John Wayne to Elton John. The Shelby is tough gritty all American fun with a retro swagger and not fancy flashy with funky glasses or even carbon fiber for that matter It is all about the engine with enough suspension raw power torgue and oversteer to put a chill down your spine and your heart in your mouth when you stomp on it. And If you do have time to look at all that shinny plastic while going 0-60 in 4.5+ you will see a smile on your face. Can't do that with those walnut and leather, int. All American swagger. Get some
Big Ol torgue range and raw power. Great retro exterior with clasic lines. Fun to drive a throw back to all american muscle cars but with modern engineering. Decent suspension, ride and handling for the price
Power seats on both sides please. Clutch is a bit stiff for commutes but works great for driving hard.
