    I'm not sure if any of you have been following the development of the GT500, but I've been watching it out of curiosity. Ford finally released a hp figure, and it is 760 hp. That's a crazy amount of power no matter which way you spin it. MSRP is rumored to start around the $75k mark but if you account for the (likely) silly ADM, these will be ~$125k - no thanks. The car will also likely weigh north of 4000 lbs and only comes with a DCT, which is unfortunate in my eyes. What a time to be a car enthusiast, though!

    I saw an article on this earlier this morning.
    It looks pretty mean from the front, but I'd still rather have an original.
    Go BABY GO

    Teslas are definitely moving the needle for me in the electric car segment. I drove a Model 3 and it's impressive. That being said, I am far from wanting to have an electric car as a performance vehicle.. not yet

    The racing leagues definitely help improve the performance that will hopefully be used in production cars. "Win on Sundays, sell on Mondays" can still be a thing. Could you imagine if Tesla powered a Nascar vehicle? People's heads would explode.

    Yeah, I've been working on my dad jokes the last few years. I'm still self-aware enough to know that they're fun. It's not like I'm actually trying to make good jokes. lol
