First 2020 GT 500 rolls off assembly line
« on: September 18, 2019, 02:20:56 PM »
in Hornet Green. Looks like stripe delete car.  Hmmm. Wonder why. Not as if this particular buyer couldn't afford the option.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

nice !
These cars are meant to be driven, so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all clean. Carroll Shelby

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

 Hmmm... Makes me wonder if there will be a companion ( Little Red) ? That would be very cool too.

Send all these new GT500 guys who are too cheap to spring for the strips to my house. I've got a roll of tape and a case of Krylon, I'll do it for $500.00.

The car one day will become dispossessed from Mr. Jackson and eventually end up in the hands of someone suspicious, someone with lack of attention to even the most basic of maintenance. The car will sit and then be found 50 years from now covered in boxes, lawn chairs, pots and pans, old news articles 30 years in the past, mouse nests in the seats and ignition wires gnawed through to the copper, hey depending on the State maybe even a posh residence for a copperhead snake as well. And it will be a eureka holy grail find. Like one of the last V8 Interceptors. And it shall be named Gigahorse. And will be driven by a mad crazed man who thirsts for gasoline and the open highway. And and and....hey when are they gonna end that litigation and make the second new Road Warrior anyway??? If Tom Hardy ages out because of George Miller's obstreporous litigation then I won't go see it.

Richard, you are spot-on with that prognostication! 

At least, let's hope that car still exists 50 years down the road.   But, I doubt that many of us will be here to find out.

We might.  Caloric restriction through intermittent fasting is a good start.

In 50 years, the finder will open the hood and wonder how far that little 12 volt battery could make the car run back then.
