if Mustang GT500 then get the Shelby GT500KR Convertible -- R-Code Ram Air 428/335 HP Cobra Jet V-8

335hp is "understated" on purpose, more like 400hp

fwiw there were only 518 of these made

Looking for convertible, don't believe Jensen ever made a convertible. Sunbeam Tiger had if at all a space at the back like the MGB.

Hey Dirk - see my pic above. HS friend's dad had one. It was pretty strong off the line.

Guess I never saw one in the UK growing up. I did go to school with Jensen's son and met his dad and was driven by him in one of his cars for lunch.

How do you think she found out about the thing. She's been in Charlies many times!

KR is cool, and more collectible, but really just an appearance package over the gt500. Even CS says there really isn't a difference between the 428 PI and 428 CJ.

On the short list if I ever replace the GT car.

How'd you like the Austin?



Really no budget, just depends on the car. want something that will maintain it's value, but nothing concourse so I can drive it and not worry
The Healy was great, just a fun car with a beautiful exhaust note. Definitely kid room in the back. Will also maintain its value.

Someone posted a Rolls Corniche which would be nice. Had a couple of Silver shadows which have the same running gear and trim with 2 more doors. Such a nice couch with wheels if you can stand the attention and not as bad in maintenance as most think. Fairly simple to work on yourself and there are a number of major components that are GM. Of course the key is to get a good one that's been maintained. Biggest issue areas are hydraulics (both braking system and suspension), usually no issues unless some idiot used the wrong fluid.
