    Big Bend Open Road Race 2016

    Steve, I ran 150 most of the time this year but keeping it as an average would require the GT350 to stay in 5th a lot of the time. That would keep the rpm's high. The car suspension could do it but not sure I would want to stress the engine that much. BUT, yes the car could do it, it would just...

    Big Bend Open Road Race 2016

    Gentlemen, This is a great time. Some of us have done it for 7 years. I have entered the Cobra, Shelby GT350, Ford GT, Nascar and Cobra multiple times. This is limited to the first 160 entries. It fills up within an hour of opening. It has quite a cult following. Ben Beckert wanted to come play...

    Big Bend Open Road Race 2016

    Doc, I did see some dead animals one being the bird in my grill that zigged when he should have zagged. Soroush - It was better than the fox body but at over 160 the hood did move around alot more than I liked. It was amazing the acceleration from 155 to 170 when you shifted to 5th from 6th...

    Big Bend Here We Come

    I am ready also Dave! The convoy out, 550 miles, should be a blast. Dave will be leading in his GT and we will have three GT350's following (a yellow, white and gray) followed up by a Laguna Seca. Ford Lovers dream. We should get a few stares and thumbs up! Thugboat

    Has anyone received or seen a GT350 on a dealers lot?

    Gentlemen, I purchased this GT350 w/ Track Package from Cary Ford in North Carolina last Friday. Looked for a few months. Flew in from Houston thru Newark Friday morning to pick it up. Left Houston 6 am. Finalized all the paperwork at 2 pm and started the drive home. My good friend, (Tony...

    The New Shelby GT350

    GT 350 track day offered by Ford update! Many of us received the track day letter from Ford to drive a GT350 at a designated few tracks around the country. Several of us replied immediately and were told sorry but sold out. One of my buddies that accompanied me to a couple of Rallys was lucky...

    Ford Warranty Issue

    Steve, Go rent a Chevy truck, go back to dealer load up all your crap and continue on vacation. Leave the service manager with a note demanding he get the Ford warranty people involved and you will see him on your way back thru. Also be prepared to rent a trailer and take it home to your...

    Houston area dinner

    "Don't think we should let Tugboat come along, hell, he's gone to the dark side and bought a Vette!" Come on Dave, after I sold you that fine, solid piece of Ford history sitting in your garage? Don't be nasty. I still might bring some Ford product. Would hate to be seen in a vette there...

    First win as a Pro

    Great Job, He is living the dream. When he is ready send him down to Texas and we will put him up and he can play the Adams Tour. Little bigger paychecks and higher entry fee's. Those type scores will earn him more money here. My son's first pro event is in Lufkin Texas in July. He wants to...
