And I'd still take a GT350 over a GT500.

Agree, I've driven the GT350R and the combination of the Voodoo V8 and Tremec Manual can't be beat.

Me too. I think the GT500 has too much power to be a track car. And if I wanted a Mustang-based dragster I would drop a whipple on a base GT for $40k instead of $100k.

I have not driven either car but just feel the Voodoo V8 is special given the number of FI V8's out there right now.

I have a hard time appreciating the looks with the GT500. The GT350 however is beautiful as far as mustangs go.

I think we have a consensus then. $130k to get a GT350R, and 2 spare motors. Semi kidding.

You know what? Screw it. You guys are all right. I'm going to leave work today and go buy 5 Mustangs based solely on this article and this thread. I am beyond overjoyed that I get to be just like everyone else now. I'm amazed at how much better I feel already.

Seriously, I'll drive by 50 mustangs on my way home today and won't notice a damn one of them. I realize oversaturation is a hard concept to grasp.
How DARE you!?

Some of us like nothing more than to stand on our lawns, wife under our shoulder and say things like "will you look at that car hon? Its the kind of thing I'd notice on my drive home."

Checks out. A good friend of mine brings his to the 24 hours of Lemons every year so that he can experience the joys of fixing a car in true, competitive environment. I'm sure next year will finally be the year when his transmission makes it through the whole race.

The oil usage and track-oriented suspension is why they are such a good deal on the used market.

I think a lot of Mustang people didn't really understand what they are.

And a lot of hardcore HPDE guys don't drop that much on their toy.

Oh, thank you. I needed that laugh. That house is pretty bad ass! She has some nice stems as well. Almost hard to see both due to whatever the hell that is taking up most of the real estate in the photo.....I just can't seem to make out what it is! I've gone 'stang blind!
