About “R U Yella”

Ive has this car since 1995 been doing car show's ,cruise nite's , was in the car craft summer cruise event in 1997 and a car calender in 2004 and 2005. Cuda-Challenger.com car calender 2008 and voted the "hottest rod in lincoln 2007" radio contest.

About “Red”

This car was purchased over the Internet... I refused to take the rididculous pricing and posturing put on by all of the local dealers in California... The pompous attitudes when quoted pricing, and the unwillingness to strike a deal lead me to shop on the east coast where sales were hard to come by due to the economy, and the dealers were definitely more realistic. The greed and posturing was left outside the door... I had my GT500 shipped from Baltimore MD, and I swear it was the longest Frick'n 2 weeks of my life!!!
