I saw this recently in my neighborhood. The script on the window says "Reggie Jackson Collection". I think the owner bought it at BJ a couple years ago.

Dare I say: I’d choose it over a Shelby?
They’ve been selling at more realistic prices as of late.

I was driving through Lynchburg over the holidays and there was a 429 at a dealership with a "Not for Sale" sign on it. Some other interesting cars there as well.

For me, absolutely.

No idea if true, and might just be tuning, have heard Boss 9's are not the most streetable beasts. They really want to be WOT. I would love to have one, but Im stuck in Foxbody and newer era.

They came pretty choked off on the showroom floor.

Headers and a dual 4bbl intake/carb is a great start. Cam swaps just open it wide open from there. Even using period pieces, you could get well past 550 hp without major work.
