1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang – Cut Snake

So sexy it would put a horn on a Jellyfish.

When you've spent so much time and effort on a car, one would hope that it's exactly what you want it to be! Good on him for putting a personal touch on a classic. To hell with the fuel costs, just looking at it or hearing it would make everything worthwhile!


Bet you're an accountant....
