Just a few night pics from after the Woodward Dream Cruise this summer.
Ford’s new Shelby Mustang GT500, 662hp for under 60 grand.
Today, the automotive world has lost a true legend. Carroll Shelby, winner of the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans and father of the Cobra and the original GT350 Mustang, among countless other high-performance cars, died today at the age of 89 from complications from an illness.
We here at Mind over Motor mourn the loss of this man, and he lives on through his groundbreaking and famous automobiles. Car guys and girls will miss this storied personality.

I visited the Shelby Museum on my recent trip to Las Vegas. It is a nice showroom with some pretty rare cars in it. They were gearing up for a 50th anniversary event to be held that weekend, so there were a few extra cars around as well. Here are some photos to enjoy.
Driving around Newtown and I found this rare beast sitting on the side of the road at a local shop. GLHS means “Goes Like Hell Some more”, over the normal Omni GLHS. I had never seen one of these before so this was a very cool surprise. More pics below. Read the rest of this entry »
Back in 2006 me and my family went to Tampa/ St. Petersburg, Florida. Me being the car nut, I decided to look up somewhere to go see some exotics in Dupont Registry. I found an ad for a Maserati MC-12. My dad called and said he was interested, he asked what else they had and they said “we have everything”, they weren’t kidding. We met up with the representative not at a posh dealership, but at a warehouse in the middle of an industrial, working class area, a place you would never expect to find such things. Upon entering the back room of the warehouse, behind a machine shop, I laid eyes on some of the most exotic cars on earth. I don’t want to give away to much about the owner, but let’s just say he is an RV salesman who has done fairly well for himself. His collection was truly immaculate to behold, and I have not seen many of these cars anywhere since. I figured it was about time I posted up this incredible experience here on MoM. Cars do not get more exotic than this, enjoy the gallery and details inside.
Went out to Lambertville, NJ for Sunday brunch with my family. It was 50 degrees outside in January, so I figured I’d bring my camera to catch any cool cars running around. The Lambertville/New Hope area always has some solid cars around, here’s what I saw today. Read the rest of this entry »
Ford blew everyone away in 2005 with the newly-redesigned Mustang, on its first new chassis since 1979. The styling was completely revised, in the ‘retro-modern’ design theory, which spearheaded development of the new Camaro and Challenger. Read the rest of this entry »

Nothin quite like these cars, especially the old ones, they just have a character that is all their own.
