I wish the Onion News Network would release a segment on the Shelby GT-500000000000. Their writers could come up with something far more clever and snarky than I could...
Back in the late 60's & early 70's I loved Shelby Mustangs, they gave you something special. Now it's just an overpriced specialty car, that anyone could put together for thousands less, and still deliver the same or better performance. Every time I look at the Shelby GT500 Convertible at the nearby dealer with the 5K ADM on top of the 65k MSRP, I just have wonder who might be willing to pay.
Gone are the days when you could buy one of these and rub it with a diaper for 5-10 years and think you have an 'investment' you can sell for big money at auction. They are sure nice to look at, but that's about it, for me anyways.
