Personally, I think the ONLY color appropriate for the GT350 is the throwback White with Blue stripes. That said, the Silver with Black stripes unit in the photos was very tasty looking.

For kicks, I think it would be fun to get one of the new Police Interceptor SUV's and either leave it plane-jane as pictured below for a sort of canyon carving, Open Track Day sleeper, or doll it up as shown above for a flashy grocery getter. Though I would not go so far as the lower pic. Perhaps a set of nice wheels and tires and leave it at that. Refrigerator White with the Black "INTERCEPTOR" across the hood, with the spotlight delete. Then again, it would not be particularly fast, with just the larger displacement N/A V-6, but with AWD and all the Cop suspension, brake and electronic tuning, I bet it would rail with some good rubber on it. Perhaps it is just the old me trying to stay in touch. But, it would be a cheap, reliable and stable fun track day tool.

I have never been a fan of red cars, but this one looks GREAT IMHO. In another time and another place, I would have one of these in the garage. Not really a Mexico car...

To paraphrase Jimmah Carter - "I've looked on a lot of cars with lust. I've committed adultery in my heart many times." This car makes me feel kinda funny. 8-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLJW2R4rEnA

I hate Ford at this point since I can not afford the real desirable Mustang that they are going to produce sooner or later. They should give me one for loyalty, but, instead, they have priced me out of the game. So, I got a new motorcycle, and, to hell with them since there is no Mustang that can legally split lanes.

I read a December 2015 Motor Trend review of the GT350R and they were ape-caca over it. What a toy, :clap:

However, not really a good car for the 6 km off pavement to our casa...
