Besides, I'm already in another loan. The truck loan. Whackadoodle. lol
Like I said in the previous post, it's all in the "planning stage" right now. It may happen, it may not happen. Some factors decide whether it happens or not.
But, for the record, it is a killer car. Turns heads everywhere and absolutely nothing wrong with the car at all. It's a blast to drive. And if I or someone wanted to really turn it up, it would be super easy and super quick. It's a TVS car, which are some of the fastest out there. Some of the greatest tuners around as well, including VMP, Ken Bjonnes and Lund.
Ah ok... you got a killer deal to begin with. Good... that will help with resale. So cost-factor/impact aside - why the desire to get rid of her? Just to get into a new Shelby/something new? Am just curious... maybe you're bored of her? hmmm If I didn't already have Marilyn, I'd take it off of you, no questions asked. LOL. I know the state of your car, and other than slightly more miles on my end, I think the way we take care of our cars is similar

Good luck buddy. Make the best decision for you and not for anyone else. What does the wife/family think? I guess I'm assuming you are hitched and with family. I couldn't make a decision without my wifey's blessing

Thanks bro! I appreciate it. The only reason I want to get into something new is, honestly, I'm never satisfied. LOL (Aren't we all though ,when it comes to cars?!? lol) If the GT500 is coming out, I will give that a look. That's what I really want anyways. But, obviously, need to see info and specs before placing an order. I WOULD LOVE a GT250R, but if boosted, it needs engine modifications. (I don't need to sell my car, I want that to be known. I may want to sell it.)
No wife, so I answer to no one, but my wallet. LOL Was engaged at one point in my life, but everything happens for a reason, right?
Thanks again bro. Have a good one. Hope you're enjoying your beast of a car!

Hana! Said perfectly. No one but you. I like it.

To your other point though, I was going to suggest that but I wasn't sure if it was an option for you financially. If I were you, I would keep her, and then buy a Shelby alongside with it. Obviously, this is the best route to go if you are financially able.

Mark, I think this would be the right route to go for both of you. I might definitely have to drive up to Minnesota more often if you do do this. Tony's car only exists in myths as of now. But if you buy it, then it actually is "real". I'd have to go see it! Haha

Too funny Burton!
Funny you said this about the Shelby. I found a perfect Shelby too. I don't have a 2 car garage for the Shelby if I keep the Roush too, so I would have to pay a storage place, which is more money out of pocket every month. It's not financially sound for me.
Like I said, it's just a pipe dream for now. I'm still thinking it over. I won't be making any moves till October, if I do.

The truck does park outside, unfortunately. The Roush is tucked away in the garage.
Have a great weekend bro! I hope you get to enjoy your Mustang this weekend. We need some updated pics!

So you have a 1 car garage?

Funny you mention that as I am out driving around now and taking some new DSLR shots. It's been too long. First weekend home in 2 months since it's been nonstop baseball tourneys with my son!!!!

Finally installed the adjustable BMR upper control arm and mount that I bought during the last Black Friday sale, about 7 months ago, lol
Set the length as close to the stock one as I could figure it, for now, until I can get the car on a drive-on lift.
Quick test drive, love it.
Didn't expect to feel anything, just wanted to make sure there were no unwanted noises.
Didn't expect the firmer feeling from the rear of the car when accelerating.
Love it.


It's a beefy work of art, especially when compared to the puny factory parts, but even when compared to the Steeda unit I had in there:

It's kind of a shame that it's hidden under the car:

Couple of days ago we brought this home.
My fiancee's son bought it, we borrowed a trailer from a friend and got the thing home.
'69 Mach 1 shell, needs all kinds of work, but he's psyched to take it on and resto-mod it:

Absolutely nothing! I was thinking on Friday at work, I was going to take her out all weekend.
Friday night,...nope! (rain)
Saturday,......nope! (did some cleaning/laundry, went to the gym to do cardio, (no lifting this week, as I take a full week off every 2 months), and cleaned the truck after supper)
Sunday,........nope! LOL (took my mom out for her birthday and going out with friends later)
I still have Monday and Tuesday. So, there's still hope!! (Tuesday is a vacation day. Took an extra long weekend.)

Had that happen to me a couple years ago. A Texas DPS trooper was right behind me and had to slam on his brakes. Lights went on immediately, pulled right around me and right behind the ****ing hippie ***** who showed her ***. I pulled off the side of the road up ahead to wait for the officer to speak to me, and as the **** was screaming at the top of her lungs that I was tailgating her, he waved me on and yelled back, "THAT'S BECAUSE YOU WERE TRYING TO MAKE HIM!!!" Last thing I saw...as I gunned my exhaust while pulling back onto the highway...was her flipping me off with both hands (happens to me a lot with prius drivers, as another thread details a similar episode just yesterday involving a mangina and his hurt feelings) and the officer whipping out his cuffs and placing her under arrest. I chuckled.

How do I know she was a hippie? Tie-dye shirt, dreads, **** racing her belly button to her crotch--and winning--and I could smell the mary jane off her from 20 yards away.

All I wanted from the Prius that was tailgating me was for him to give me some room, you think slowing down then putting space between us and maintaining speed limit would have been a sufficient clue but I guess not...
