Beautiful!

I don't know why, but one of the biggest things I don't like about the new Mustangs is that piece of clear plastic in front of the headlights. I think it would be tons better without that there...

As various colored replacements are available, they must be easily removable. I haven't checked them out closely.

I just can't believe how good that looks. Words like "Spectacular" come to mind and just don't do it justice. That's just absolutely fine in every way, and I'm sure, has Mr. Baeur shaking in his supple ostrich-skinned boots. Copyright the "Ascout Signature Edition" ASAP!!!!

My god it's hard to stop looking at that!

..THIS guy!!! This machine is built/driven by a coworker friend of mine, and it's a TR-6 in skin only, basically. The rear half is all tube frame with a 9" Ford rearend and 4.11 gears, and up front there's a Ford 351W motor stroked to 408 cubes and pushing around 500HP....the shaker hood is a nice touch as well. This car ahs so much power it's really more for the dragstrip but he replaced the auto trans with 4-speed toploader and now goes road racing - the autocross stuff is fun just to see how long he can keep it from sliding all overthe place!

Ahhh...the Lotus Europa....used to run against them "back in the day". They ain't that great...mucho skinny tires and a pitiful Renault engine, as I recall. And if you think one must feel vulnerable in Miata on the freeway, Europa's has zero visibility (in or out....did you note the rear window?!) and wouldn't have even felt as a speed bump to a truck. They looked wicked cool, but had no grunt.

That Triumph(in-name-only) is way cool...bet it understeers like hell but must be big fun! (As you know, I have a special place in my "heart" for Trumpets....)
Great pics!
