Owner: Bill Hamilton
Company: Retired and Loving Life - Retired USAF
Description: Retirement Gift from Bill's wife. He has owned and driven Mustangs for 47 years and presently owns three to include a 1970 Mach 1. When they quit building Mustangs, he'll quit driving. This was the last model year of the Shelby GT-500 and the last to have the big DOHC 32-Valve 5.8 liter with 662 factory horsepower. Ford reports this vehicle as capable of doing 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, 0-100 mph in 7.7 seconds, a quarter mile time of 11.6 seconds at 128 mph. It's also capable of 202 mph. He'll just take their word.
Modifications: 662 hp from the factory is more than enough to get you in trouble in less than 6 seconds. 6-speed transmission with 3.31 rear axle ratio. Have gotten as high as 26.2 mpg on the highway driving at legal speeds (but not as much fun).
