: Drove a Hertz Shelby GT-H Mustang today

This probably won't be news to most, but here are my impressions:
Looks kinda retro cool
Transmission also retro -- clunky 5-spd auto ruined driving experience
Engine revs nicely, but 325 HP (or so) lags V
Overall build quality inferior to V, inside and out
Pipes and intake make nice sounds
Looong hood, reminded me of the old days
I liked the suspension, at least on the freeway
I couldn't figure out how to work the aftermarket Serius radioI'd never buy one, but fun for a day. Attracted many stares in Pasadena.

Commercials make it look cool... like they make food look tasty.

I just got a coupon from Hertz for some $$ off a weekend rental from their "Fun Collection" and was thinking about checking one of those out. I was also thinking about heading right to the dragstrip with it, but I didn't realize it was an automatic.

better to mess the thread than mess your pants.
