Nice GTR.

The blue one was already covered by Dippy. In fact, he learnt about the entire history of the car, and DROVE it!

I guess the gray Mustang was once owned by Ratan Tata. Thats what a guy at TMW had told me once. Not Suraj. Some other guy.

Hey GTR good pics by a phone cam pal. If you check the may issue of Auto India *I have done a story on the restoration of this Blue Mustang. *Suraj is close friend of mine Had a spin in his Mustang quite a few times. The roar of that engine is mind blowing ( GTO can vouch for that). Infact Revvmaster was also presesnt with me once.

Rode in that other Mustang too but I enjoyed the old classic better...

Check out the mag issue on how that blue Pony car was restored from the dead..

Cheers

Yeah the V6 Mustang is Crap .. Sorry dippy, driven it.. but is an insult to the name muscle, only reason why ppl like it coz it is a mustang. And looks amazing, but that engine is crap, I rather liked the ride and sound of the V6 Baracudda that I drove.. Anyway Let me present you the GOD of Muscle (leaving the GT350/500 aside ie.)




Fast n Furious anyone??

How about God number 2 :

(BTW, keep the crap mentioning thing a secret )

Whoa, that Barracuda is MEAN! Just look at the front end treatment of the car.

What was it like to drive, PF?

The Baracudda had a weak chassis (I was told).. But the Engine was un-bloody-believable. It was well maintained, you should see the car in flesh to believe it. It was wicked to drive, cud feel the g-force building the moment u pressed the pedal.. I think there are a few pics in my Dad's cell, I'll check and post up!
