  • This here Mustang is the Boss pushing 720 Horseees – Wow! The color is perfect! I grew up in S. FLA (Ft Lauderdale Beach) in the 70’S and this cool color is quite reminiscent. What a Car, what a place to grow up…

  • To counter Jerry, I grew up in the waaay North and this color is from Comic books. Not even the Meyer Manx was offered in such a pasty hue. ‘Eleanore’ or the ‘John Wick’ is probably more representative of 700hp. I like Roush, they don’t overcook their cars.

  • Roush has been and will be #2 to The Shelby GT500
