I tried logging on for the Auction there for two days, had a very hard Time tried for HOURS.. So I thought it just wasn't meant to be, was bummed out there for a little bit, But more I thought about it, More I realized I did win, because this Auction was all about those GR8 Kids!!!! and They WON, and to have all those gr8 people helping out all those kids!!! Was really something Else !!! Thanks Gu...

Really? An auto? I like new gen autos. They are usually far better shifters than the regular Joe...but that's not the point is it? It's about being in total control. If it has 2 doors it needs a manual. Imagine shifting 800hp...Daydreaming.
Robby N Raquel Stanley Jan 12, 2013
Sinister.
Jake Knickmeyer Jan 12, 2013
There's nothing wrong with auto. Wouldn't be my choice but everyone has their own preference.
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Jan 12, 2013
This looks so good!
Jacob Burford Jan 11, 2013
I wonder how it does in the corners? Good or a big mess? Anyone know? Not that it matters a huge amount for a muscle car like this!
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 11, 2013
Good luck with that Tim.... lol.
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
VVV LOL VVV
Timothy Hooker Jan 11, 2013
if I had this car and only a left arm I would figure out how to shift with my teeth...manual is the only way to go
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 11, 2013
Funny, Carl (*sarcasm) millions of people drive automatic muscle cars and sport cars at least half of them is men are they pussies too? God being an elitest must be so hard for you
Lou Guerrero Jan 11, 2013
Actually David, Carroll's ideal Cobra is a narrow MkI with a 289 and an auto. His words.
Justin Routh Jan 11, 2013
Hahaha said it perfectly Carl
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
The Boss 302 is not available in an auto either. Look if you need an auto get a GT. I was just saying the boss 302's engine would be better for DD-ing.
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 11, 2013
*correction Gt has a lot of them.... But no option for others what gives
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 11, 2013
Carroll Shelby don't care... I said there should be an option for auto like if u pay for it from a dealer. And how come the 302 is auto but not Shelby? Biased much!?
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
And I think it's pretty awesome and unique that this car is ONLY available in a manual as it should be. Make this an auto and Caroll Shelby would roll over in his grave.
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
Worn tolerances can't handle boost, or the lag on the pulley drive. A Boss 302 would make a better DD, my dads gets 25-26 mpg on the highway.
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
An auto would be nice for drag racing and being a daily driver. But first of all, supercharged cars don't make good daily drivers. N/A cars do though. Superchargers are quite harsh on engines with high miles.
Patrick Schalk Jan 11, 2013
Damn this is nice. I like.
Tin Nguyen Jan 11, 2013
I'm sure it not expensive to convert to auto.
Tin Nguyen Jan 11, 2013
I wish they make it auto too cuz I'm a para and have to drive with hand controls.
Timothy Hooker Jan 11, 2013
haha. this in an auto would be blasphemy!
John Jenkins Jan 11, 2013
well, if you want a daily driver, I suggest you buy yourself a Prius, it comes with an auto, great mpg, and plenty of storage space for all the groceries you could possibly desire.
Kaigan Viner Jan 11, 2013
Bad ass car
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 11, 2013
I said it so you can curse me all you want this car should have an auto option. you want to enjoy shifting and being purists fine. i want a daily driver, it should be auto. shifting is too much work for me.
Jordan Jackson Jan 11, 2013
What kind I of blasphemy is this?!?!?! Make this an auto!? Your nuts! Lol
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 11, 2013
I wish this was auto
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 11, 2013
What a beast
Ben Knorr Jan 12, 2013
looks badass
David Parenti Jan 12, 2013
Chances are, if you have the dough to buy a lightning or a ram SRT-10, you don't give a F about the price of gas
Tyler Tarbox Jan 11, 2013
@Aaron. Haha yeah my dad has a Ram SRT-10 as one of his daily drivers and it gets horrible gas mileage. Although not the worst mileage of the cars he has lol
Aaron Crisp Jan 11, 2013
I want a Ram SRT10, but then I look at gas consumption... Lol
Tyler Tarbox Jan 11, 2013
@David. Yeah you're right. That supercharger allows for so much torque. Love it
Tyler Tarbox Jan 11, 2013
Must've been a terrible driver. Cuz I easily won over the SRT-8. About a 40 to 110 and it was pretty convincing win. Granted I did get the hit but still. Horsepower sells cars, torque wins races
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
Bad driver maybe.
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 11, 2013
LOL@aaron. good ole chally...
Aaron Cordroch Jan 11, 2013
Lol @ Tyler. I have a challenger r/t with minor mods. Blew a lightning's doors off.. Seriously, he needed new doors when I got finished with him.
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
Tyler, even from a dead stop you would've taken him. The lightning makes great low end torque with that S/C.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 11, 2013
@Robert. Have you ever even driven a 2nd gen Lightning? They are ridiculously fast and easy to upgrade. Both the Lightning and SRT-10 Ram are crazy fast and not just for trucks. Mine is near stock and I ripped a Challenger SRT-8 from a 40 roll
Brian Johnston Jan 11, 2013
This is awesome
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 11, 2013
Sexy beast! I just wish it had chrome rims, tired of black rims
Aaron Cordroch Jan 11, 2013
This thing looks mean
Jacob Viiper McCord Jan 11, 2013
can I get the Lightning Instead?
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
Tyler, that white lightning looks pretty sick. Looks like its on bags and tucking 22's or 24's.
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
They have totally different interiors; door panels, gauge cluster, seats... Suspension is engineered to handle, the lightning sits about 4-5 inches lower. The engines are two different animals. Different frames. I can go on all day.
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
Lightning was far from a turd. There isn't much that is the same with a lightning as a regular F150 maybe the cab and fenders. They are almost completely different.
Robert Young Jan 11, 2013
Man those lightnings were turds bro. Just like the Chevy 454SS. Soooo much potential but they screwed us on purpose.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 11, 2013
Just want to give a shout out to the white Lightning in the background :)
Greg Kenerly Jan 12, 2013
I don't think people actually win things like this. If I did I'd sell it and buy an SUV a truck and a Mustang GT...2015 that is...
Wyatt Gordon Jan 12, 2013
Im loving those wheels, anyone know what they are?
Aaron Crisp Jan 11, 2013
My girlfriend won some make up from Covergirl. That's about it in my experiences haha
Aaron Crisp Jan 11, 2013
I knew a guy who won $50 at McDs monopoly...
Logan Bartnick Jan 11, 2013
This car is awsom.
Nick Jones Jan 11, 2013
Not low enough for me
Max Jabaay Jan 11, 2013
I like the stock rims better
Tyler Tarbox Jan 11, 2013
This one hopefully is legit. I was on the leader board for a short while on the fantasy bid last year haha
James Buster Jan 11, 2013
The rims do not fit it
Drew Humphrey Jan 11, 2013
I won a pencil once for getting bingo in French class. Yep.
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
Oh man that sucks! They always publish the winners of those things. I wonder if they are just actors lol. I won a 400$ BMX bike in a raffle. I hope this one is legit.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 11, 2013
I sort of won something from the McDonalds monopoly. I got three of the four railroads needed and then about a week after it was over I found the final piece on the ground. Pretty upsetting
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
I've never met or heard of anyone who's won a national contest. I won a local contest once.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 11, 2013
Haha I will be too. And I'm sure this will be one of the entries for it
David Parenti Jan 11, 2013
Looks like I'll be Hagerty Fantasy-bidding!
Lesly St Louis Mar 08, 2013
That thing fast cars
Corey Medeiros Jan 13, 2013
Heck yeah
Dale Schroeder Jan 12, 2013
They crammed all kinds of good stuff in there, didn't they?
