The Amazing Rental Racer – Shelby GT-H Mustang

April 17th, 2007

130 MPH!!!
Video of 100 to 130

I was out of town this weekend and needed a rental car. I just couldn’t pass this up. Now, I’m not much of a Mustang fan, my parents have the GT, but I prefer the smoother ride, and the faster get up and go of my Vette over the GT. I punch the pedal, and I am moving.

This is exactly how the Shelby responds. It has a wicked growl, and only get deeper as you put the pedal down. I highly recommend it. My brother and I drove it on the freeways of Southern California, so if you saw a gold and black blur racing down the 10, 605, 405, 91 or 22 freeways (yeah, we were all over)….I plead temporary insanity, cause this car just wills you to go all out. You have been warned.

  • ENGINE 4.6-liter V-8
  • TRANSMISSION 5-speed automatic
  • POWER 325 hp
  • TORQUE 330 lb-ft
  • 0-60 MPH 5.1 seconds
  • TOP SPEED 147 mph (electronically limited)


By the way, my brother, Jer, is a madman in this thing. I don’t think he will be borrowing the Vette again any time soon. I know its just a rental, but damn, he was a man on a mission. He just had to hit 130 before we returned it. I suppose it was a good thing I didn’t tell him the top speed was 147 mph! He would have tried for that. 130 mph on the 10 fwy is not a good idea.

I’ve been Joost!

Got my beta invite for Joost today. All I can say is WOW! Really not what I was expecting, really blew me away.


What is Joost, you ask?

Well, to quote the Joost website:

Joostâ„¢ is a new way of watching TV on the internet, which uses new and established technologies to provide the best of both the internet and TV worlds. We’re in the process of making it as TV-like as we can, with programmes, channels and adverts. You can also see some things that we think will enhance the TV experience: searching for programmes and channels, for example, as well as social features like chat.

Picture is really crisp, streaming is awesome. Sat and watched several things this morning and was left utterly speechless.


There are a lot of channels to choose from, and this being beta, I was surprised that the quality and quantity of programming is so great.

I should be receiving some ‘tokens’ to give some others a taste of Joost. So if you ask really nice, when I receive them, you just may get lucky.
