I guess it's not a P51 if there are only 51 out there, but I've got a co
worker who has a Roush modified Mustang with Supercharger and other goodies
that get it over 500 horsepower. The thing is an absolute blast.
On a side
note, I was talking to my friend who started a Miata club in a friend's
basement years ago. Turned out the friend was Keith Tanner (Flyin' Miata guru
among others). We (Bruce Murphy for those who've met him) were talking about
the Corvette and how friggin' good these muscle cars are today. Flyin' Miata
will stuff a 430 HP motor in a Miata, but the thing ends up weighing only a
few hundred pounds more than a Vette without the proper wheelbase to handle
properly. If I had room in the garage right now and needed a "normal" car, an
American muscle car would be on my short list.
