@ Viking: Yeah i think so. There's also a lot of Ford Mustang from Mach 1 to classic GT in this comic. Not just Ford, an ultra rare 1970 Corvette 454 LS7 also make appearance. If you already buy that comic, try to see this chapter:
Bean : A race between 67 GT500 and 70 Corvette LS7
Prison Break : A race between tuned Mach 1 and 67 GT500 with some crazy stunt.
V26 : A race between BOSS 302, 66 Cobra 427 and Viper GTS.
I will try too look the other

@Super8 cool. I looked it up, it is published in English by Dark Horse comics, which is good for me since I can't read Japanese. I will glance at the Manga the next time I am in the local Barnes and Noble book store. The author is definitely a fan of muscle cars.

@ Viking: This car also main part of comic book named Gunsmith Cats. A women called Irene "Rally" Vincent drive a blue with white Le Mans Stripes but not a pale blue. It has been modified and has about 600 Hp and could reach over 180 mph and can outrun Bell Ranger Helicopter. I think the author Kenichii Sonoda, is really like this car very much. The license plate is BRD 529 Illinois State

@Super8 beautiful car. I remember first seeing one sometime around 1970 or 1971 and being floored by how good it looked. Jim Morrison, lead singer of the Doors, bought one in a pale blue, although it was usually so dusty that it looked almost grey. Possibly my favorite Mustang as far as looks, although a 1969 or 1970 Mach 1 with sport slats is a close second.

1967 Shelby GT500 is one of the best Shelby that ever made and also best GT500 that ever made. Shelby outfitted the GT 500s with fiberglass body pieces, including an elongated nose, a hood with functional scoops, and four body side intakes. The fiberglass tail had a molded spoiler and sequential turn-signal lamps borrowed from the Mercury Cougar. High-beam headlights were mounted in the center of the grille (some were moved to the sides to meet state laws). It also had very good performance just like the old 1965 Shelby GT350R. Even Shelby posted the max speed about 128 mph for 4.11 close ratio, 132 mph for 3.5 ratio, and 140 mph for 3.5 long ratio, but a lot of owner reported they can reach 150 mph and even 155 mph. It might true since 428 Cobra Jet that made specially for GT500 in 1967 had the cast-aluminum medium-rise intake manifold from Ford 427 FE to tweak more power and also it has bigger max rev than 1968 Ford Mustang GT Cobra Jet make it can reach higher max speed. Paired with lightweight body, will provide a great race car performance with grand touring capability
