Went to North Carolina In A Shelby

Well here it goes :) , wednesday i purchased an engine block from one of the guys here ( robs87t ) so instead of the normal ok ship-it!, I thought ROAD TRIP! so i called up a buddy and told him of my idea he was like :headbang: , so i thought my 05 navigator will consume way to much gas and it'll put us both to sleep, ( the dang truck is too comfortable :yup: )
so i figure, i'll just go to hertz and rent a -v6- jeep but when i walked thru the doors i knew that plan just went to $hit when i saw what was sitting in the showroom f loor, I looked over and saw a 06 Shelby mustang :eek2: which looked really, really nice ( look for yourself ) i tell ya this was the first mustang i ever drove, and i tell ya the car ROCKS!! it got what feels like 500 hp i rented it with only 200 miles on it :yup: , it now has over 1800 i know the manager is going to be :rant: about the miles but it's free miles anyway :) ,

guys, the car rental is $130 a day with a reservation without it it's $240 but NOW HEAR THIS if you have a capital one credit card you get 43%off , the clerks could'nt even believe the rate, the car rides and performs like a dream i never thought much about mustangs but this car I WOULD BUY, i love the way the mufflers sound, an awesome auto ford guys, well done.

you r right .... maybe he hasn't been in anything that fast before :dunno: :D :sw:

I just drove back from Orlando Fla. yesterday and had to do it in a rental. I tried to rent the Shelby rental but the ones they had were all booked plus they woundn't do a one way rental to NC anyway. :( Did it in a nice comfortable Buick Lesabre averaged about 25 miles per gallons running about 80mph. :D

The Hertz cars are basically stripe and wheel packages with a different exhaust, otherwise its just a standard fair Mustang GT. Although still they aren't a bad car at all.

To hell with all the falderol (Zap's version of Hadicol), tell us about the block! Is it really a Stage 1 block? Does it have all the holes drilled? Does it have Smokey's autograph on it? :)

Anyone can buy a Ferd, but, not everyone has a good block these days! :cheers:

hay steve, it does have all the holes, i just dropped it of today at my mechanics (freddy) he's ordering all the good stuff for it, and he's having it tanked, it looks to me like the block was never used i will take pictures of it when i go back on thursday( should have done it today) it's an awesome block and looks like it was never used? i'll ask,

but so far so good :cheers:

Now this is nice

well after dropping of my block at the shop, i noticed this really nice 109 block with GN1 Alum-heads, TE-45c and a couple of other goodies, you'll have to excuse the poor picture quality, i also took a couple of pics of a cobra attack helicopter with the rental.
