    He asked me, "would you trade the widebody for a new GT500?"

    Dang. That stopped me in my tracks. The new five hundred is lightyears ahead in performance, but having a 1 of 1 supercharged widebody convertible is a dream come true.

    I still don't have an answer, a week later...

    Trading Cars or Trading Places? A dilemma indeed!

    If it took a week, the answer is a resounding, "NO!"

    There's no hurry on the GT500s. There'll always be an overpriced one nearby...here in Cali.

    Another TWO 350s lost engines at Willow Springs the other week. I heard one blew an oil fitting and the other blew a hole through the pan, which oiled down T8.

    This. You can’t even use the HP you have now on the street so stay unique.

    I can't help but think over time the Voodoo will gain a reputation as "less reliable than a Coyote."

    Well, one can always use more power on those Mexican highways on the way back from Vegas! But I hear you.

    The widebody isn't going anywhere. Besides, who knows what forms the GT500 will take over the next few years. AWD anyone?

    Next up will be a better electric to replace the Focus.
