I have seen quite a few originals, AC and Ford, 260, 289 and 427 even had the chance to sit in a Dragon Snake (427 w/ 4 duces drag pack car)

@ Matthew, how many decades did the 427 cobra hold the 0-100-0 record? These things were unbelievable accelerating

These things were wicked fast. Still are. Plus they look fantastic.

Hell, they were some of the fastest back in the day. 427 models hit 167 back in the 70s!!!

Fastest? You can't of been in many nice cars then? They weren't famed for their speed
Jared Palmer Mar 31, 2012

Yes they are. My friends father has one with a 427. Gave me a ride in it, so much fun just being in the passenger seat. Nothing else like it.

Very nice but I prefer the blue with white stripes more
Abraham Mendoza Mar 31, 2012
Yeah, I'm sure classic car collectors look for cars that cost more than 10 million...
Matthew Reindorp Mar 31, 2012
Classic car collectors would definatley look elsewhere first... 250GTO etc etc
Abraham Mendoza Mar 31, 2012
I don't think so. Maybe if it were made in the 70s.
Nick Steiger Mar 31, 2012
This car has got to be on the top 10 list for classic car collectors.

Did the ACs have i6s before?
quadrophine Mar 31, 2012
who needs power steering? if you live in the city, you'd never need free weights, parallel parking would be all the diesel you'd need.
