Stepping into a Collector Car

Obviously, I have not posted to the blog for some time and this was due to a number of factors of which the Pandemic was by far the number one issue.  In my area all of the car shows and car related events were cancelled and the enthusiasm was muffled for many of us.  With the increased availability of the Corona19 vaccine and some common sense as to what is safe for all participants some of the car events are now reopening.  Another issue that affected me directly was that I injured my back.  If you have classic cars and really enjoy the hands on maintenance these 50 + year old cars constantly require you will find yourself either under the car or under the dash, in both instances it is the wrong place to be if you have a painful back situation.   So with this said I decided to sell, my last and favorite of all my classic cars, the 1968 Pontiac GTO.  I owned this car for over 12 years and loved every minute of it. It was the quintessential 60’s era muscle car.  I did not and have not lost my enthusiasm for muscle cars and this brings me to todays new post.  The modern era car that I feel most accurately mimics some of the looks and feel of the muscle cars of the 60’s and 70’s, while providing reliability and less maintenance, is the 2007 to 2014  Shelby GT500.  The distinctive look of the Mustang body style, powerful engines and all were manual 6 speed transmissions (no automatic transmission was even offered).
