    fully insured and out of storage

    going to start driving the HC today(cant wait anymore), but keep the GT500 off the roads until a few more rains....

    weve gotten 3 small rains so far, the snow is gone......the time has come

    im in WI....anyone else got their GT500 out yet?

    both cars got clear bra'd over the winter (Xpel).....have a set of 305 Nitto's waiting for the rears on both cars for this season.....should have the set in the GT500 within 2 weeks

    my cul de sac is always so full of ministones/sand/gravel from the winter i need to take a leaf blower to the whole cul de sac.....i may spend the afternoon out their leaf blowing the road.....im sure the neighbors look at me as the village idiot as im doing it, but w/o its almost deafening the noise of the stones chipping the cars

    i know we didnt get enough rain to fully flush the salt off the roads.....but i cant wait anymore on the HC

    im going to take the wife out to lunch today in it and also pick the kids up at school!

    ill flush the bottom out with a power washer in a couple of weeks to get all the salt off

    its not like 100% of these cars havent seen salt on their trip down from canada....mine had white inside the hood and trunk edges where the dealership didnt get all the salt off of it

    underneath looks perfect still!....no signs of salt issues....i can see 1 rust mark where they hooked my car in the unibody to pull it out.......it will take 100+ years for that mini rust mark to spread into anything

    took the wife out for lunch...it was her 1st time in the HC....she was very impressed....she always loved the 2011 IE....but she really likes the Sublime and the new interior....she is getting over a concussion and the exhaust note caused her brain to hurt........i like the way the exhaust makes my garage door vibrate

    on the way home i took it to a safe spot for a small beat run....a kettle(ice age stuff) in the road w/o any driveways.....i took it from 45 to 120 (down then up).ive taken her to 140mph before and 0-100mph runs are common with me....120mph is a bid more unusual...little roller coaster ride....performed similar to my gt500, but a bit smoother w/ the A8......it may have gotten about 10mph faster at the top of the hill than the GT500.......i know my gt500 is supposed to stop faster on paper, but ive alway felt the SRT's stop better.......there is no shortage of brakes on the HC.....they work well.....even in 50 degree weather i felt confident with the power...more so than the GT500 in 50degrees......i wouldnt do a beat run in any temp under 70 degrees with the F1's on the GT500

    50 degrees, sport transmission, street traction.....floored it at 45mph and no sign of a slip.....with the GT500 you feel it rocking from side to side as its losing traction and the computer is keeping you on the road....its more raw over all than the HC.........i really like the HC.....glad i made the purchase

    pick the kids up at school tonight in it....2 of the 3 drove home with me from MI months ago......im sure i will impress all the soccer moms----maybe a burnout from the church parking lot?

    Nice! I drove about 100 miles in my Shelby yesterday, I just couldn't wait anymore. I love that car, it's a lot of fun but I don't have a HC yet to compare it to.

    You have my dream garage!

    im a very lucky man...i know...i work my *ss off......as do many of you im sure.....i found a special niche market in Plumbing and am able to make very good money specializing in high end customers.

    id love to add a GTR or a Z06....but no more room....my ultimate dream car is a Ford GT, but i cant justify the cost....i dont care if other cars can out perform the Ford GT...i just love it

    have a new friend who has a better collection than me
    Viper Acr
    Ford GT
    Z06
    Raptor

    im very happy and lucky to own 2 awesome and different cars

    I would not call the Ford GT my ultimate dream car, but it ranks pretty high on my list! I agree with you, it is beautiful!
