Smokum, what!!! no more GT350, didn't you just spend money on a bunch of parts??? Did it broke?
WAG: I'm super glad to ear that. Let it be a demon/hellcat fighter and our car be the Camaro fighter.
Yes and No ....... I did spend money on it but it was money from the sale of my Go fast parts from the GT500.
No it didnt brake
This has been on mind for some time. Though I make pretty good money in my position that will all change when I retire.
Rule was from the wife, that my car would have to be paid off in full for me to retire and since I financed the whole amount it was going to take some time.
The GT500 that I traded in had lowering springs .... tons of cosmetic mods done to it and all I took off the car to make it eligible to be traded in was the
to take off the go fast parts and I returned the car back to its stock HP numbers.
The owner who bought it knew how much I still liked the car and he called me advising me he was going to sell it and if I would be interested in buying it back.
I had actually begun to look for a clone of that GT500 thinking that the GT500 I traded in would never be available and so the owner who bought the
car from our store he and I worked the deal out for me to buy it back.
I had the dealership buy the GT500 back from the guy and I traded my GT350 in.
Instead of a $800 payment at $44000 I now have a $240 payment at $12000 and will be able to pay off the GT500 probably within a year
Allows me to still have a great car and Shelby and retire alot sooner. Plus the old tech GT500 will be easier on the pocketbook for repairs
and tire replacement
Now thats what I call a pretty engine bay !!
