That does look nice, but I'm a Ford Mustang guy. I would take one of the new 2018 LFP Mustangs though. Buy straight from the dealer putting out 1200 Horse Power. Nothing can touch it made in the USA.

I think the new Dodge Demon at 808 HP is in trouble.

I liked some of the old classics like the 57 chevy, just wish we had at least the 1960's prices back again

Them prices just make ya sick! The 55-56 & 57 rocked. I'd love to have a 56 Bel Air. In fact I've got the standing request to trade my fully restored 1964 1/2 Mustang convertible for a nice 1956 Bel Air.

My pony for trade.

I love the older cars also, my first car was a 56 Chevy 2 door sedan.
I dropped a 327 in it and totaled it 2 weeks later.

My brother-in-laws has been restoring classic cars for years. He's got your 55s 56s 57s and up all show room condition. Nomads, convertibles, hardtops.
He has an extensive collection of Belairs in the 60s with an original 63 or 64 409.
He's escorted the Beech Boys to concerts with his classics pulling up to the front of the stag and dropping them off. Kinda cool

You may have to update the prices in the advertisement...

Killer truck coin chaser. My brother buys a new Raptor every year. Of course he was in an accident years ago head on with a John deere on the highway at 70 mph. He was in a Ford ranger and lost. He lost a leg, an eye, and partial use of an arm. It was the farmers fault and my brother got a $4.5 million settlement. Them trucks would be some fun in the dirt for sure.

Oh man thatís rough. Although itís a lot of money it seems like so little for what he lost.
How does he like the newer ones with the smaller six cylinder engine? I heard one getting on the gas and it sounded like a cross between a rice burner and a truck. Not so sure I would like that. Call me old school but there just isnít a replacement for displacement in my book. I think I would stick with the 6.2L older ones.

Crazy how much hp some of those are making, but the fact they are being produced in large numbers pretty much means they will probably not skyrocket in the collector field in years to come.

I have a hard time keeping 500 RWHP under control on the streets I can't even imagine what 1200 would be like. And a top end of 200+ MPH. Where in the US are you going to be able to hit 200 MPH? I've had my 2015 Mustang GT 5.0L up to 155 MPH and I was just shifting to 6th. It drove like I was doing 55, but then it hit me what hitting a pothole at 155 would do.

Your a pony fan. Here is one still own. I don't understand the rage for exTreme HP. Most drivers likely do not track their cars. I like speed but only with safe limits to me and others on the road.

My neighbor a voice actor hit a pothole on his HD darn needed a new wheel it wobbled after 30mph.

I know they are not a practical purchase but tempted.
Last year went to a dealer looked at a triple black C7.

I was ready to buy and asked if could start ignition.....now this was a brand new c7...... darn the battery was dead....still looking but on my bucket list.


The Corvette has been a fun car to drive....sure the usual car problems but what cars don't.

Probably will get the base model LS1 plenty of HP. Have a look at vette tire's they hardly have any tread like a race car. You only live once and a motorcycle temps fate for sure.

Been talk of a mid engine for years maybe one day but who could afford one?

Some dealers already taking 1919 orders

They (Vetts) are killer looking cars for sure. I past what looked like a new ZR1 yesterday and was like damn that looks good.

Yup them tires make a lot of difference. Here is the rear of my Cobra. These are brand new tires.

It was the dealer that pointed the tires out to me..I'm a Mustang fan first but darn the Vett is tempting.


Saw a Mustang this summer signed by C.Shelby, but did not understand half the stuff under the hood..America made some classics no doubt loved by collectors the world over especially Canada. My brother had the classsic GTO and one late brother gave family a 1955 T Bird.

My neighbor has the 56 or 57 Bel Aire and a 32 deuce coupe both built too a T and show worthy.

I just love a good classic be it muscle, 4x4, pick up or just a good old cruiser. But, I will admit I love to go quick. I'm not so much for fast, I mean at 155 mph a lot of things go through your head, but I love quick. As Dom would say "I live my life 1/4 mile at a time". That is why I keep my Cobra around. To feed my need to go fast.
