I gotta disagree that automatics are faster, if you trace the beginnings of performance cars there were NO high stall converters to get the engines power band up before leaving the line. That's where stick shift cars would shine to rev it up to what your car liked, and dump the clutch they would launch quite nicely. If anyone has ever driven a road course aggressively with an automatic its never in the right rpm range because its trying to upshift to calm the rpm range, this was long before manual valve bodies on autos. Before "Select-Shift" you had to finagle the shifter, pull it into L and it would hold second gear, but it would go back to first at unfortunate times. The automatic drag cars are very consistent with your ET at the strip which makes them the preferred trans to run. Back in the 70s and 80s people looked at my 66 350 6s 409 and thought, I had an early fake which really upset me so off to change the auto- for a top loader. Offerings from Porsche- Ferrari- GM- Shelby and most of the other manufacturers installed 4 speeds when it was meant for performance applications. Nothing wrong with an automatic you can have your sweetie sit close to you on trips (bench seat, four speed, let her do the shifting) you can have a cup of coffee while heading to you favorite destination, and not feel like you just got back from the gym. :-[

I still prefer manual, getting harder to find. I hear next GT500 won't have one.

No.

First ones had "One Buck Well Spent", later changed to "World's Best" printed on the front at the bottom.

I thought the Habanero Salsa was pretty good.

Supposedly there was a Carroll Shelby's Southern Cornbread, but I never saw that one. Would have bought it, if I had.

Somebody must have a bag laying about somewhere.
The question is: what are the ingredients?

Thank you for your support.
