    So there's really no depreciation hit for buying the '17 model. Only downside is they dropped competition orange so I will have to wrap it. There is one about 50 miles from here with the exact combination of options that I want. Then as I am sitting here in the parking lot at Five Guys Burgers, a black GT350 rolls up and just sounds effing awesome.

    Do it! Such an epic car. Even the current gen GT 5.0 with performance pack and some sticky tires is seriously fun.

    I don't think Ford got the orange quite right. Normally I love orange but not this one. Still a great car and I'd suffer through that shade to hear and feel that glorious engine.

    HP = TQ x RPM / 5252

    So, when RPM is 5252, HP ALWAYS = TQ

    Sometimes you will see dyno charts where the lines don't cross at 5252. When this occurs, it is because the scales on the graph for HP and TQ are different - so look closely.

    GT350 gutless below 3200rpm, only 300lbs tq. Whatever.

    Meanwhile, I hopped a flight to San Jose this morning. Why? To meet the Mark from Santos Ford in Los Banos, where my black GT350 awaits.

    Your GT350 will look awesome when Moti welds the rollcage in it.

    Went.

    Spent the afternoon at Sonoma with Speed Ventures. 1:54.2 in 100* heat with 210# passenger. Bone stock. Thing is crazy good.
