    What other performance cars have you guys had besides mustangs. I have only had a 1966 GTO, 389 4bbl Auto. Car was pretty quick. But the brakes sucked really bad, they would fade out pretty quick under hard braking.

    It is the only car I regret selling.

    I had a 67 dodge cornet 440 magnum, a 71 grabber maverick, a 65 barracuda. These may or may not classify as performance to some people..04 dodge srt-4, and a 04 subaru sti.

    I've only had two cars in my life, my first ride being a DFG 93 SHO that was pretty damn quick if not quicker than my current ride which is of course my black 95 5.0.

    The term "pink slip" comes from back in the days drag racing when i think the vehicles title was commonly printed on a pink paper.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but i think thats the deal? :dunno:
