On the street I mean ;D seen the first one on the street today on the way home. Lucky for him I was in my work truck and not in the Cobra or we would have seen how fast that 4000 pound retro car REALLY IS :D :D They look sick as hell :eek: :eek: I would love to have one, however I'm still stuck on a Terminator 8) plus the price difference is enough to be admitted into the hospital for cornary stress :'(

nothing too impressive.

HAHA :D I hope you're kidding

i'm not kidding. my car's the silver vert in the back. but i've also had rides in the new z06 and the ford gt, and to be honest, the z06 is beyond a beast.

maybe if the Shelby didnt weight about 800 POUNDS more than the Z06 it would feel as good :nonono:

my friend's z06 vs. my other friend's ford gt.

z06 had a tune and otherwise stock, the gt has the svt racing exhaust i think.

i love my stang, but the only other one i'd actually ever buy would be a 67 gt500e. i absolutely adore eleanor. i have my sights set on bigger fish within the next two years, though.

nah, all through h.s. i wanted to do a built motor and tt it, now i have the money to and i lost all the desire. i'm worried about having a car that's in the shop more than on the road. i'll see how shit plays out over the next year, but i'd love to pick up another toy for myself that'd be up there with those cars. i'd also like to help my dad get a c6 z06 in the next few years, since we forced him to sell his '65 stingray convertible.

I've personally drove one and they're not that impressive. It's too heavy. They rev nice and have good power all through the broadband, but something is missing. I think it's the hype. It was sooo looked foward to... The Ford GT was too much of a race car for me. It's uncomfortable. I'd rather have a modded Termonator. But hey, just my opinion.

my friend just did the bullrun with his ford gt. got pulled over doing 190 in cali. other friend in a supercharged vette was walking away from him at 200+. no tickets. didn't have him clocked in on radar. it'll probably be on the next dvd he puts out.

aerodynamics and handling say otherwise.
1/4 mile, maybe. but the bodystyle wouldn't allow 200+. nor do i think it'd be nearly as fast around the 'ring.

didn't they do an fr500 with this current gen? i saw a mag cover with a 500hp n/a stang. that'd pique my interest if it was a good 500-700 lbs. lighter than the gt500. or if they put the gt500 on a serious diet and got it around 3200 lbs. that'd be awesome. the new vette's going to decimate the current z06, probably.

Yea the new Z06 is fast.... :blah2: ....but at the end of the day its still a POS GM product that already has the roof falling off and in 70,000 miles the whole car will probably fall apart. :drunk:

all my childhood my dad had a '65 stingray convertible. i absolutely adores the car. so i grew up with vettes. got the mustang on my 15th birthday. the exhaust is what sold us. fun car, i love it to death, sounds phenominal, but i could never put it in anywhere near the same league as the z06.
