    The marine who bought it seems real cool and assured me he'd keep in touch about the car.

At the drag strip, it’s set to produce a projected 700-plus horsepower via its first-in-class dual-clutch transmission. At the track, performance improves even more thanks to its race-bred chassis, custom Michelin tires and the largest front brake rotors ever available on an American sports coupe. On the street, its menacing aerodynamic design and Ford Performance driver control technologies make every moment behind the wheel even more exhilarating.Most powerful Ford production car everIn the process of making the all-new Shelby GT500 the quickest street-legal Mustang ever, Ford Performance created an exclusive powertrain to deliver new levels of power and torque.“With its supercar-level powertrain, the all-new Shelby GT500 takes the sixth-generation Mustang to a performance level once reserved only for exotics,” said Hermann Salenbauch, global director, Ford Performance vehicle programs. “As a Mustang, it has to be attainable and punch above its weight. To that end, we’ve set a new standard among American performance cars with our most powerful street-legal V8 engine to date, plus the quickest-shifting transmission ever in a Mustang for all-out precision and speed.”Shelby GT500 starts with a supercharged 5.2-liter aluminum alloy engine built by hand. To keep the intake air cooler and deliver a lower center of gravity, the team inverted a 2.65-liter roots-type supercharger with air-to-liquid intercooler tucked neatly in the V8 engine valley.Like Shelby GT350, the aluminum alloy block features weight-saving wire-arc cylinder liners and high-flow aluminum cylinder heads, plus larger forged connecting rods, improved lubrication and cooling passages. Beneath that, a structural oil pan adds strength, reduces vibration, and features a patented active baffle system to keep oil where it’s needed.To channel power and torque to the unique carbon fiber driveshaft, Ford Performance leveraged learnings from the tuning of its Ford GT supercar’s dual-clutch transmission. The team selected a TREMEC® 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, which is capable of shifts in under 100 milliseconds – markedly faster than any manual gearbox. This dual-clutch transmission is designed for a number of drive modes, including normal, weather, sport, drag and track, and activates features like line-lock and launch control through selectable Track Apps.Next-evolution Mustang performance bred from Ford GT and Mustang GT4To harness the power and torque of the most powerful Mustang ever made for the street requires cutting-edge active chassis technology, track-bred Michelin tires and Brembo® brakes – all dialed in by Ford Performance.Shelby GT500 takes advantage of revised suspension geometry, a new electronic power steering unit and lighter-weight coil springs front and rear. Next-generation active MagneRide™ suspension is baked-in, along with the latest in advanced drive mode technologies from Ford Performance. The payoff is the highest-ever lateral acceleration from a Mustang for greater track performance and driver control.Putting all this chassis hardware to the pavement, custom Ford Performance-spec Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires and more aggressive Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires feature unique compounds and tread. To provide track-ready stopping power, massive 16-5-inch (420-millimeter) two-piece rotors are added – the largest of any domestic sports coupe – plus larger, stiffer Brembo six-piston calipers. With 20 percent more swept area than the Shelby GT350’s, these brakes have more than 30 percent additional thermal mass in the front corners.Two handling packages with increasing levels capability are offered for the all-new Shelby GT500. An available Handling Package includes adjustable strut top mounts and spoiler with Gurney flap. For the truly hardcore, an available Carbon Fiber Track Package features exposed 20-inch carbon fiber wheels with 0.5-inch-wider rear wheels (11.5-inch), custom Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, adjustable exposed carbon fiber GT4 track wing and splitter wickers with integrated dive plane. The rear seat is deleted to reduce weight.A functional, menacing design tuned with Ford Performance know-howThanks to a cross-functional team of designers, Ford Performance engineers and motorsports collaborators, the 2020 Shelby GT500 has functional track-hero looks to match its performance capabilities.“With a double front grille opening and 50 percent more cooling pack airflow versus the Shelby GT350, along with the most advanced aero components and downforce we’ve ever offered, every millimeter of Shelby GT500’s fastback design is aimed at improving performance,” said Melvin Betancourt, Ford design manager.Those large angular grille openings and muscular hood combine for a menacing, aerodynamic-led design inspired by modern fighter jet aircraft. The car’s wider front fenders and stance housing Shelby GT500-specific 20x11-inch wheels proportionally align to its rear fenders that hug up to 20x11.5-inch wheels. A standard new rear spoiler and updated composite materials in the rear diffuser result in added thermal management.The team leveraged Ford’s motorsports technical center in North Carolina and its windshear rolling wind tunnel – where top-tier racing teams test – to perfect the design of the Shelby GT500. Front fascia openings are more than doubled versus the Shelby GT350, while six heat exchangers are stuffed in to increase cooling pack airflow by more than 50 percent. A massive 31x28-inch louvered hood vent features a removable aluminum rain tray for better air extraction and increased downforce.More craftsmanship, technology and driver comfortShelby GT500’s purpose-built cockpit boasts race-inspired premium materials and unique finishes worthy of its world-class power. Premium touchpoints include an available exposed carbon fiber instrument panel appliqué and new door panel inserts in Dark Slate Miko® suede with accent stitching. Available Recaro racing seats with firm side bolstering and pass-throughs for safety harnesses offer the highest level of performance. For those looking for even greater comfort, power-adjustable seating with Miko suede inserts is offered.The all-new Shelby GT500 picks up a 12-inch full-color LCD instrument cluster, while a high-performance custom-tuned 12-speaker B&O® Play premium audio system is available. All of this is controlled via an 8-inch SYNC® 3 touch screen featuring SiriusXM and FordPass Connect™.New colors for 2020 include Red Hot, Twister Orange and Iconic Silver. Painted stripes are available for the all-new Shelby GT500 too.Building on the legacy of Shelby performanceWith a reputation for transforming Ford Mustang into dominant road racing machines, Carroll Shelby, American racer and entrepreneur, took his legendary Mustang GT350 model further in 1967 to craft the first-generation Shelby GT500 with a modified 428-cubic-inch V8 inspired by his team’s 1-2-3 finish at Le Mans.Carroll Shelby called the original Shelby GT500 “the first real car I’m really proud of.” Today, that legacy continues with the third-generation 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 – the most powerful and most advanced Mustang ever.

    AR pistol build is also coming along nicely, PWS MK111 mod 2 is in the mail from Fortress Tactical(place is awesome BTW, run by one guy who will give you his cell number and text chat like you've been buddies for years). Got a stripped lower from the last gunshow and have the lower parts kit plus drop in trigger in the mail as well. I'm planning a survival/Toomraider-themed photoshoot in the not too distant future so I'll have plenty of hardware for that.

    Z6 has arrived, it is simply amazing! Going to snap some gun photos here at work for another conversation. Have a photoshoot scheduled for this weekend but the forecast calls for a winter storm so it may be postponed.

    My laptop has a 1070 in it lol, that sumbitch gets hot when I play FO4 or Tarkov! Two of my three major balances have been paid off, just need the payoff for my toolbox then I am completely debt free. Perhaps this friday I'll be set to get started. I'm going to be upgrading my camera setup here soon as well so big money.

    Congratulations, I hope you are happy with the deal. It’s a beautiful car and I’m sure you hated to see it go. I sold my hot rod (70 Monte Carlo) in 2006 and still sometimes dream I still have it, only to be disappointed upon waking.

    I guess I was confused what RAID was. I definitely don't need an automatic drive backup, just extra massive storage to keep files that aren't being actively worked on.

    Good grief. Sorry it is causing you such a hassle Peter I do know some states (don't know about Va) won't allow a vehicle to be titled to a new owner, if the current owner doesn't have it titled in the state where he lives, also with a current registration. I also know some states could care less. It might be worth it for you to get it titled to you and registered in Va. A buyer might not know about this potential hassle and be surprised at the dmv, to find he has just bought a car he cannot drive or sell. Then he's mad at you....

    Boy this has been a royal pain in the ass. After putting the car up on Facebook I've received about 4 million messages asking about availability(sometimes at 3am). I've had multiple people come look at it and all expressed interest. The latest guy came with his truck on monday and had a certified check in hand but changed his mind after looking at the car. Christmas day rolls around and he calls saying he's changed his mind again and will come pick it up first thing this morning(wednesday). This morning arrives and I text and call him with no response. At almost noon he calls back saying he's changed his mind a third time because of the title being from Texas and is not a clear VA title. In the meantime a marine from Quantico came by(with his gf who got to meet gizmo!) and agreed to my asking price and did not care about the title. He just needed a little time to get the money and said he will get the car on the 31st. I'm just ready for this BS to be over.

    Truck is "done". Its running great, pretty quick but certainly nothing special. Sounds good and rides really well actually. The roadrunner tho... fuckin shit. Talked to the engine builder today. Its a 400 block with the largest stroke crank you can put in it (I forget the number, he was throwing numbers at me), bored .030 over, cam will really come on at 4 grand, 10.2-10.25 ish compression, 509.95 CI. Thing will be a beast of a motor. Should make just shy of 500 hp and over 500 tq. FX1_7822 by David, on Flickr FX1_7813 by David, on Flickr
