Got to drive car 6S0174 yesterday. In case you were wondering, it is a Shelby GT-350 carry-over car. For those uninitiated, a carry over car was one that started life as a '65...enjoyed some of the benefits of the '65 design (i.e. A arm drop) but also has several of the '66 features such as the rear quarter windows.

This particular car has a 5 year-ish old resto on it. As a part of the resto, the motor has been BUILT. This thing sounds like a freakin' NASCAR stock car. It accelerates and handles much more like a race car than a street car, and is not for the meek or mild. It is loud, it is stiff and it requires that you really muscle up when driving it!

Needless to say, it was a more-than-cool experience to drive it, and the experience just added fule to my fire that while I absolutely love my vert...I love true performance oriented cars at least as much...probably more!
