Seeing as how we were only in the second quarter of 2011, we’ll admit to being a little surprised at seeing ’12 5.0s at Knott’s. This one is showroom-stock and belongs to Carol Frosco of the Southern Arizona Mustang Club out of Tucson. She and husband Joe “broke it in on the way to Knotts,” and plan on a Bassani after-cat as their first modification because Carol loves the way Joe’s GT500 sounds with that exhaust. Joe bought his “first one,” a ’66 Hertz GT-350, after saving his Vietnam combat pay. He traded it for a ’67 GT500 and then a 428 CJ, and is absolutely loving his newest Shelby after wishing he had never sold the first.
