My American muscle car dream is about to come true.....
This was a Christmas present to end all Christmas presents, my life long dream to drive a piece of american history is about to come true. Not just one dream car but three, talk about being spoilt for choice, its always been a dream of mine to drive an American Classic and now i have a the opportunity to drive three, finally i`m getting out on a track to find out for myself how these full blooded american muscle cars handle and I have 7 cars to choose from, with so many classic american muscle heroes its a difficult choice and excitement is growing, seeing them in a museum or motor show is glorious but i want to feel, smell and hear what these icons are like and how they handle on the track and this is just the beginning for me as I plan on having a lot driving experiences through this year. Its easy to do, go to a website called Track days where you get to choose your track day experience, they offer you the most amazing driving experiences you could wish for, from American Muscle cars to Movie cars to Super cars to classics to 4X4 off roading the choice is yours and with a choice of venues all over the U.K it`s everything a track day out should be.... So the American Dream is mine for a few hours anyway! my dilemma is, which three cars do i choose? Lets take a look at the contenders......
Ford Mustang GT 350
1965 Mustang GT 350 My first choice for a must do drive has to be a Mustang, a car that I have loved since childhood made famous by my other childhood love Steve McQueen in Bullitt sheer beauty that can`t wait to get my hands on and fulfill a lifelong ambition to drive one of these cars from classics Mustangs to modern day ponies, this is one car I will have to drive.
