    The car I posted is worth 1.8 million. In other words more than your entire net worth. Including your mom's basement.

    Here are pics of the cutaway. It has some impressive engineering.

    Unlike our resident troll, I can back up what I say I did.

    You must have forgotten my apple orchard

    Not to mention the antitrust suit that will be breaking google up into smaller companies

    Yum yum yum

    Now what was it you were babbling

    You phish for info much

    Because you just got none

    Now for me to own a 1.8 million dollar car would mean I was worth say a quarter billion dollars at least.

    Make your payment loser

    So getting back to the SUBJECT, I've just watched a few videos on the new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Marvelous car to be sure.

    This is clearly the ultimate Mustang, and certainly the ultimate "Pony Car" of the moment. 760HP, 0-60 in 3.3 sec. Sub 11 second quarter mile. Not only a straight line "demon," but also fantastic on a road course. STARTING at $73k. But with expensive items left off (carbon fiber package: $18k) that anyone buying one will definitely want, buying one is a hundred thousand dollar proposition.

    It is also instructive to watch the Jay Leno's Garage video on the new 2020 Corvette convertible. Many of the features are literally fantastic. And it appears that the knowledgeable buyer will be able to purchase one of these for Sixty Large.

    Again I ask: Why buy the Mustang? The Corvette is a SPORTS CAR; the Mustang is a "Sporty car." Aesthetically there is no comparison... a cool design vs. a work of art. The interior of the 'Vette is a step into the future; the interior of the GT500 is a Mustang interior. Nice seats, that's about it. Performance is pretty much a wash, even though the Mustang has more than 250 more HP(!). Will the Mustang hold a golf bag? The Corvette will.

    In five years the Corvette will be worth more (unless the Mustang bombs and is super rare).

    Look, I know there are FORD people out there who will be thrilled to pay the price for this GT500, and wouldn't own a Corvette on simple principle. But there is no rational reason to pick the Mustang over the 'Vette.
