Poll question on 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500?

Ok, this is just a little survey question for an experiment. What is your honest opinion on the 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500, (original or Eleanor, doesn't matter.) What do you think of it? Do you like it? Do you hate it? What do you know about it? Is it your dream car? Most intelligent answer gets best answer.

Poll question on 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500?

I like it but Carroll did some things to reduce cost with each year. By 67 the rear brake cooling vents were just for looks, for example. But the great thing is 67 is the first year the big block would fit into the engine bay. So the 390, 428, and even the beastly 427 side oilier would fit. For straight line performance it was amazing but the big block was heavier so the handling suffered. He stuffed two big driving lights into the grill and they just don't look like they go there. Carroll said his chassis were designed by Goodyear. When ever the competition would get close he would go to Goodyear and get bigger. fatter, and sticker tires.
They were awesome cars and i wish I had a few....

Poll question on 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500?

the 67 shelby mustang gt 500 was a great muscle car but had a light rear end which allowed the rear end to break loose (and lay lots of rubber) it was fast but was not the best road car.

i owned a 67 mustang gt with a 390cu/ 350hp V8. the car suffered from wheel hop so we put tubular traction bars on it. it didn't take long to break the traction bars, so we had to build a much stronger set.

we also had trouble keeping a clutch in the car.

my gt was midnight blue fastback. sold it after 5 tickets in 8 months.
