..But the GT was a little out of my price range. I had no idea that the Ford dealership in my little podunk hometown had turned into classic car Mecca.

I was thisclose to writing the dealer guy a check for this ‘98 A8. Had some weird body damage on the driver’s side doors, but for 3 Grand, who cares? It was a hoot to drive, though. I seriously considered buying it and driving it back to TX and skipping the flight home, just for the sake of a good story.

And then at the Ford dealer, I went for a VERY nice drive in this black Mustang 5.0:

I gotta say, I’m sold. I really want one. But not in black— graphite or white, please.

Love the drip holes on the exhaust. Nice touch.

Oh, and they just happen to have an unrestored ‘68 Shelby for sale. Y’know. Signed. No big deal.

Oh, and this one... it’s about 750 RWHP.

And, finally, some more of that GT:

I got to educate the sales guy about the GT... he didn’t really know very much about it.

Overall, a pretty fun afternoon.
