HOMETOWN: Charleston, South Carolina
It was a retirement gift from my wife when I retired from the Air Force. I've owned and driven Mustangs since I got my first in college in 1970. This was the last year of the Shelby GT-500. It is equipped with a 5.8 liter V-8 with 32 valves and DOHC's. It is factory rated at 662 horsepower. Ford reports this vehicle is capable of 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, 0-100 in 7.7 seconds and the quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds at 128 mph. It is also capable of 202 mph, but I just take their word for that.
