    That is so cool! What an opportunity. I would kill for that opportunity. That is SOOOO far ahead of the GT500 it isn't funny. The MACH1 can cost as much as that if optioned up. What a joke. It's the performance bargain of the world. I have to say I absolutely hate that row of buttons though and I hate that they are all automatic. I have had manual transmissions since the late '80s. Still do. Everything on the property is manual still to this day.

    I agree about value. Would be a no brainer. This car felt mature to be in no gimmicks, flash, or rice.
    The turn signal blinker clicks were easily heard. For the older drivers. No driving for miles with one on.
    Hidden outside door handles a neat touch. Could not find at first. Where would i put one? Yup there it was.
    When it was my turn, could not get the car to move.
    Every attempt (5x) pushing the pedal to go, car would move a bit and stop.
    Was pushing the brake pedal......Am used to my car in that right foot position.
    And getting back in my car after surprisingly did not take any mental adjusting like from truck to car.
    Drove it briefly and slowly in a neighborhood 2nd gear tops.
    Was warned be extra easy with the throttle- car comes around quick. Car trolls side streets easily like a 4cyl.
    The dual clutch automatic is fine. Would not want to deal with a clutch or shifter with that kind of power.
    Has paddle shifters of course. Revs quick to 4k from idle and in neutral or park.
    Had front end lowering system. Could do that manually. Senses driveways.
    The backlit console buttons have stuff like driver/pass heat/cool. No need to scroll the dam touch screen.
    The touch screen has everything, is used to preset button functions or change tons of items and configurations
    Fuel econ said ave 27 mpg. Horn is not as loud as others.
    Could not see the engine. The top folds back there so it is covered.
    Forward visibility is great. Fenders, hood, A pillar, do not intrude. Has clear simple heads up display. Speed, gear.
    Rear is not bad much better than most new cars. Has many cameras. 'Gauges' are LCD.
    Weaving the car at 10 mph is rock solid quick, steering feel is adjustable.
    Small deep trunks ft and rear. Rear holds the traditional 2 golf bags

    Seen at weekly Friday Bruce Post car show, St Clair Shores Mi on Lake St Clair (in the background).
    Perfect day, sprinkled just as show ended. Food, music, shade, covered picnic area, clean restrooms.
    Very few new cars, lots of old owners. One person had a birthday everyone sang with the dj.
    Excellent cars about 40 cars in the grass at one time, more in the parking lot. The usual 50/50 raffle.
    Real hemi mopars, mostly 30's to 80's american made cars. Seen a Olds W30 and a W31 in less than a week.
    This friday prob will not be good. A few storms predicted plus annual June fishfly bombardment from the lake.
    Second 2021 local official sponsored cruise with car shows is Saturday in nearby Eastpointe MI.

    This was a pretty unique take on a Capri that was at Street Machine Nationals. I just now noticed the round Mercury emblem in the grille. That's awesome.
