Great day at Renee's....

…taking her sweet C-code stocker, “Goldie” and her attitudinal “Foster/Stevenson Special” out for some premium brew under the sky blue with effortless fun and admiration :-)

Rob, with so much talk of setting up small blocks around here, we should get Paul, “PFslim” to remind us on how he engineered the 289 4v in this magnificent GT/CS. With low-end torque reminiscent of my ’69 351 Windsor, she pulls hard though the gears up to triple-digits with ease in a way to seemingly wax any J-code I’ve ever experienced!

Pleasant times as always...what it's really about :-)

It looks like a perfect day to drive Renee's beautiful pony's. Nice pics as usual Tim.
I took the old GT 350 out for a 120 mile cruse yesterday. It is just amazing how much better you feel afterward. The only downer is how much she likes the gas.

...Gorgeous Shelby, Marty! One of my friends restored a GT500KR which he drives pretty regularly... These are indeed the happiest people to be around :-) As for cost of gas - Renee will tell you of the guy at the Chevron who was topping off his truck while staring at her cars...dumped gas everywhere followed by an embarrassed grin and a compliment ;-)

Yeah, it's not like we have these cars because of their great gas mileage.
