How goes?

Post by OrangeStang on Wed Dec 14, 2011 11:24 pm

Hello everyone. I have not been on here in a long time. Just thought I would pop on and say hi. Since I went back to work, seems like I hardly have time to get on the computer. I am still working on the 67. Hope to be road bound this coming summer. I sold my yellow 95 GTS. Needed the money and the space in the garage. The wife just bought a new SHO. Don't let the 4-doors fool you, this car is an absolute blast to drive. It is fast too...I'm scared to race her when I get the stang on the road. ____ bricks

Cool. Nice cars. Welcome back. Smile

Tell me more about the SHO. What platform? What are the numbers on the engine?

Yeah we are really liking the car so far. Its all-wheel drive so its a different kind of ride but yeah, twin turbocharged 3.5L V6...365hp/350torq. We added the performance package to ours which is brakes, suspension and 20 inchers w/ summer tires. I bought another set of factory 19" wheels for winter tires. It has the manual mode auto with the paddle shifters on the steering wheel if thats your forte. Push button start with no ignition key. I just get in and drive and its so smooth and quiet for being turbo charged with true dual exhaust. All the sudden your going 85 mph and don't even realize it. It gets there in a hurry too. For a "family sedan", you can't beat the fun... Very Happy

Sounds like the SHO is a sweet ride, never got a chance to look one over except from the outside. Too bad you had to get rid of the GTS though, at least you replaced it with a nice car!

So what is the progress report on the '67?

Well Dan, we might just see the 67 on the road in 2012 hopefully. I have some minor electrical work to do this winter/spring. Also need to clean up my transmission. Then the car is ready to put the motor/trans back in. I have a friend of my Dad who is working on building me a small block stroker to hopefully be ready this spring depending on his schedule and free time. Can't wait, it's been off the road since 2003!
