congrats on not wrecking this oneDecided to take the GT500 out for a rip yesterday since I haven't been driving her much lately. Forgot all about how bad hi performance sticky tires behave when the temp drops below 60 degrees. 1st and 2nd and well into 3rd are a spinfest in these conditions when trying to do any hard pulls. Oh well the parking lot at work is always fun for a few decent burnouts....
Still can't believe I've had this car for going on 7 years. Sadly she's just to turn about 30K on the odometer which bums me out a little. I decided to get her a birthday present for the big 3-O. Got her the Shelby Qball style shifter to replace the stock one which I loved but was falling apart. I had also forgotten the car had an aftermarket short throw shifter installed by the original owner and of course neither of the 2 shift boot retainers fit the threads on the shifter. Luckily one of the adapters for the shift knob threads fit and I was able to make it work by using a jam nut instead. Not quite as nice looking as with the boot retainer in place but I can live with it and it adds a little touch to the inferior of the car.
Now I just need to finish up the Cadillac project I started a month ago...
