Here it is: 740 HP, less than 3700 lbs and hits dealers a year from now.

Waiting for the performance tests, price and evaluations.

And it is going the way of high performance exotics with just paddle shifters and 10 speed auto.  No stick.

This is actually an amazing auto in track mode as it holds the revs at max toque (about 5250 rpm) as it goes up and down the gears in a microsecond.  After experiencing it in a 2018 Mustang GT on the Sonoma road Course, I am sold on it.  Takes awhile to learn the paddles if you want  to use them, but really no need.

Nope, still like my manuals and a lot cheaper at rebuild time.  Yeah the 10speed auto has a faster 0-60 and better for drag racing but with no track in our future and self driving cars, green utopia, and a choo coho that will save the Hawaiian kingdom from its impending demise, not to mention the 150k selling price after ADM, I'll pass.  The best deal out there with an X plan is a GT premium PP.  A Bullitt without the crazy markup, just add a blower and you're pretty much set....I'll take mine in Oxford White with red leather interior, in homage to my 1991 Fox that has probably gone off to a grunt thrashing.....I better stop before I weep.
One of these days, Alice!

True.  A new 460 HP Pony GT with track pack performance  and A/T at MSRP (ha, ha, ha) or better is an amazing cruiser for log jam traffic here with the hope of having a clear road for a few stretches sometimes.

Hmmmm.  So when will Happy trade in his R is the next question? They'll give him 20k for his and he'll have to put down 130k.  Wish I was the salesman on that transaction.

Then run in and get his R model for a good used car price.

You know it's funny I got a text from Randall yesterday on this subject.  We discussed Happy and his trading his 350R for this one.  I think the guy likes to get financially hammered.  Of course, he said wait for Happy to trade, then get the R for mid 40-50k.  Yep, it would be an incredibly good buy but only if the Cutter crew is willing to discount, which I think not.  I spec'd out a 2019 PP 1 with 401A and red leather interior, mentioned that I had X plan from MCA.  Yeah they honor the X plan, but it comes with a "mandatory" dealer paint sealant at $1,700, which puts it back at almost MSRP.  Also, they're saying incentives don't apply as it is a special order.  They also advertised the Hyland Green Bullit at 900k over MSRP on their website, yet at the dealer it's 5k over.  Been advertised like that for over a month.  I guess these clowns like paying flooring interest while they sit on the lot with no takers except for brain dead military bone heads wanting to spank Mopars and Chevys.  I really like the new ones but if they're up to the same old game playing BS, they can keep it.  Plus here's the kicker....they need a non refundable deposit to show that I'm serious.   Ummm, the car isn't specd like a Snoop DeVille, so even if I bail, they'll still sell it......this is why I hate car dealers and why it's becoming harder to be a Ford fan, not to mention the brain dead CEO they have now.  It's hold out to the highest bidder.....sorry homey don't play that.

Here's another thing...Commie Asses for The Environment (CAFE) has skewed the marking of auto manufacturers to SUVs not the shibai of the "public" demanding SUVs and trucks.  We got along fine in the 1960s and 1970s with sedans, wagons and coupes.  Since when do people today haul around so much crap? Plus the moms with one child driving a large minivan with 1 kid.  The very ones that scoff at Performance car drivers for them being fuel hogs when the reverse many times is true.  Bottom line, Americans are hoarders of crap and need to purge themselves every so often so there's no need for the mommy van. 

Carroll Shelby saw through a lot of the BS......Jim Hackett is knee deep in it and the flies are carrying him away.

That thing is loud.....when you see what I've done to my GT, I'm going for less rasp, more deep tones.  I'm beyond the Corsa screech crowd.....they'll all be doing hearing implants in their golden years.

Met a guy in Hawaii Kai with a blue 2016 GT350 (street) and usues it a daily driver from town to Kalama Valley.  He brokered it out of California because of stupid local ADM on new and used limitedproduction cars.  It has 27,000 miles on it because it loves to be driven. Saw him again on his way home.  Instead of turning at Koko Marina to go down Lunalili Home road to get home, he goes up the hill via Hanauma Bay and Sandy Beach coastline to run the curves to get home.  Now that is how you enjoy your ride!

There is a black 350 R model that goes in and out around Portlock.  Not sure f it is Happy's old ride or another R from somewhere else.  No front license plate for me to check. 
Damn, this neighborhood is now swarming with new GT350 Mustangs, a couple of Bullits, GT500s Lambos, Ferraris, Masarattis and scores of Teslas.  A restored Fox GT with inappropriate power adder and exhaust would be a welcome sight and sound for a change!
