    I know right. I have a Radar Detector and I use Waze just to remind me I'm going to fast.
    These cars are so frekkin fast today it's ridiculous. It's really hard to keep it under the speed limit :bonk

    I do like Mustangs, that is why I am posting. Because they are making ugly Mustangs unfortunately right now, and for a few years IMO. It doesn't matter that the car in the picture has covers over it, I can tell it will be. n When it is out, make a thread and i will give you my opinion.

    I have owned 3 Mustangs.

    Apples and oranges.

    Because you might actually survive an accident at those speeds in the Mustang, on a bike you're roadkill.

    I've had my Cobra up to about 145, solid as a rock, couldn't imagine 200 around here, maybe the turnpike

    In comparison to a 94 Stang, though? Talk about cheap and plastic-y. And I'm not crapping on it. My '02 had basically the same interior as a 94 and I still miss that damn car. The chintzy-ness was part of the charm.

    There you go, that's a contribution. Just popping in and saying "ugly" about a car you can barely see doesn't convey much.

    Our Cobra had leather interior. It was nicer inside than the Mustangs of that year. Which is why we bought it. Loved the manual transmission in that beast.

    I don’t think that any kind of mishap at 200mph is survivable in a Mustang (and maybe any road car).

    Huh. I pegged a 1990s Nissan Sentra at 120. You’d think they’d have come further by now.

    Then again, I haven’t liked the ponies since the 1968, so I’m probably biased.

    I'm guessing you could lose that bra at about 150. :D

    What are you going to do with it.
    You'll never get it past 2nd.
    I can think of better ways to spend money.

    I love the guys who bring cars like this to shows.......on a trailer.

    The other side of that coin (driving) is sitting at a stoplight when an idiot with face buried in a phone hits you in the ass at 30 mph.

    You just had to say "ding"

    FWIW, this is only the second-weirdest video I found for this song. I couldn't bring myself to post #1.

    People who do that in traffic are unbelievably dumb and a danger to everyone.
    You can get different wind screens, different gear, etc and it's really not much of an issue as long as you stay tucked and elbows in.

    Is the current gt350 selling for MSRP these days, without the markup?
