What’s This? A Mid-Engined Shelby GT-350?
We all know a mid-engined Corvette is on its way, but Parksplug spy photographer Chuckles Kamakawiwo’ole said he nearly choked on his leftover Arby’s Smokehouse Brisket sandwich when he glanced over while driving and saw a mid-engined Shelby GT-350.
That’s right — a mid-engined Mustang.
“With its short nose and stretched wheelbase, it was obvious right away it was a mid-engine car,” said Kamakawiwo’ole, who, coincidentally, also has a short nose and a stretched waistline. He also drives a Meadows Frisky Prince, so he knows all about mid-engined cars.
In an effort to identify the engine underneath the tinted rear glass, Kamakawiwo’ole wiped his finger inside one of the four exhaust tips, then licked his fingers. “Tastes like a 5.2 liter Voodoo, alright,” he exclaimed while licking the rest of his fingers.
