Well I was hanging out in a local hot spot. Sitting in the Goat arguing with the X, when I hear the distinct rumble of a Mustang...3 nice 5.0 style Stangs roll in. They are taking pics and there was also a TBSS who was looking over at the GTO! Nice cool night perfect for the GTO IAT!

One of the Stangs(hatchback) had a huge cowl hood. 2 were hatch backs and one notch all 80's-mids 90's bodies. Anyway. Still fighting on the cell with miss B!tch. I hear the cowl hooded stang start up(so did the dead). Big cam. He pulls out and does a mean burn out and takes off. The other 2 wait a light and pull out. I told the X I got to go..enough was enough and these were some serious players!

So I hear the Notch and other hatchback taking off, I quickly pull out and had to go 120mph just to get within striking distance. I finally caught up to the notch and do a 3rd gear blow by but he didn't bite. His car was pretty damn loud with skinnies up front and I also saw fuel lines and a pump from the rear. I laughed at the light and he gave the thumbs up. He turned off and that was it. IMO he would have beat a stock LS2.

After about 5mins of cruising I can hear the Stang exhuast note..sure enough I had caught up to the other hatch back. I pull up to him and I knew the guy from way back. He actually lost to my ImpalaSS. Back then he had full exhuast and bolt on stuff but now I hear a cam. He tells me the motor is a new 306cube cratemotor with GT40 heads and full exhuast with 3.73 gears. We agree to go for a run. From a 15mph roll I put 1/2 car on him and shifted to 2nd with 3/4-1 car lead but he had to let off cause of traffic. I believe I would have pulled some more if it went to 3rd. Race ended with me about 1 car out at 60mph. Definately a fun and exciting run against a nice 5 OH!!

04 or 05 GTO?? I know these 5.0's are a dime a dozen, but the only problem is that you never know what you are going to run into. Some are slow as shit and others are fast, its really hard to tell!

Nice kill. I just sold my 04' cobra and now picked up a 93' LX H/B...almost described it to a T when you were talking about the first notch...306/3.73's/etc. Can't wait to run something when it's legal and on the street.:gears: Previous owner drove it to a 12.5 @ 111 before the TF intake/heads and MSD stuff.:patriot:

Awesome kill! It's definitely a crap shoot running 5.0 stangs. Some are SO SLOW and some are freakin insanely fast!

Dr. Wu 2000 , that's a real nice LX you got there! It's always nice to see a real clean one since so many are run down.
