And in our small town, we have seen an other 68 Camaro, and 83 Camaro, a 92 IROC Z28, a 78 Z28, a 28 Hudson, a lot of 50s and 60s trucks, 3 or 4 Corvette stingrays, a couple Monte Carlo SS, and at the car show that happened at Magnolia, there were 40s cars, 30s cars, 20s cars, 50s cars, 60s cars, 70s cars, 80s cars, 90s cars, and some newer cars. Also, I forgot to mention, a Mercury Monterey. People here love their cars.

Youve got a few facts wrong. All V8 sn95s came with a 5.0L pushrod, even the cobra until the end of 1995. In 1996 all v8 mustangs produced came with the 4.6L. The cobras came with a hand built 4valve 4.6L. And there are 2000 year model cobras. The year that they werent produced was 2002 because john coletti didn't want a slower car representing svt. He quickly pulled production of the 2002 cobra. And the few that were made were exported to Australia from what I was told over the years. Then in 2003 the terminator was born.

I was happy when I saw y'all were doing an SVT UTS being a Blue Oval man myself having only owned Fords, 5 Mustangs total currently a 2013 Mustang and an 2002 F250 7.3, until I actually watched it. Y'all have to do some better research cause this one was a bit sloppy.
