So I had to go over to the Ford dealership today to pick up a part for my pickup truck. I drove my 2009 Shelby GT500 convertible because it was 70 degrees here and pretty nice. So I pull in and am getting out of the car to walk to the parts department and I see a commotion on the sales floor. A guy comes running out and asks if he can talk to me for a minute. I tell him sure I'll swing through the showroom on the way out. So I walk up to him after getting my truck part and he has a trade-in offer for my GT500. The car just turned over 30k miles and is in perfect shape. But after driving the car for a few years I've become a little disenchanted because it is heavy and clearly overpowered for a convertible chassis. Basically it is fast in a straight line but a handful in the corners. It is stressful to drive and my pits are usually wet after driving it. There is such a thing as too much power. So I point to a 2012 Boss 302 Mustang and he takes me over for a look. It was already purchased by someone who unwound the deal after "his wife had a stroke and lost her job". The car is in the showroom but has 2500 miles on it. A classic unwind. After bickering a little about what kind of deep discount I might get he let me take the car out for a drive with him riding shotgun. Amazing. Freaking amazing. Only around 450 hp but it seemed quicker than my shelby and the handling was simply superb. I laid into it on a sharply curved onramp onto the Hollywood freeway and it was just on rails. The exhaust note is gnarly. Its the Laguna Seca version so no back seat just cross-bracing that you might see at the track. Forged crank and connecting rods and small flywheel so very quick revving with an engine brake that causes it to spool down instantly when you lift the throttle. I fell in love. I've bought an unwind before so I know about how much of a discount I should get but we were still about $2k apart after 20 minutes of haggling so I stood up and started walking out. They stopped me and got my phone number and said they would work on the deal and get back to me. I'm moving overseas but will be visiting frequently and my father said I could keep one car in his garage. Maybe I'll just leave this here on a trickle charger and drive it when I'm home. So 540 hp down to 450 hp. Carbon emissions reduced. The sea levels tamed. The Earth saved. Futurecurrents should bow down and kiss my ass in gratitude.
