I've never seen a Mustang done before, but you must have seen jet drag cars before, right?

Crappy ET, tons of MPH. Big noise.

Maybe jet powered, but no way it did 308 with those stock aerodynamics.

My 1968 Mustang scares me at 100mph. I can't imagine 300mph in one.

An afterburning jet engine? I think it will do 300. The car might fall apart first.

Jet dragsters and funny cars go about 300 in the 1/4 mile with proper chassis and a helluva lot better bodywork than a stock 60s Mustang. This car is trying to feed that turbine through an OE front end.

Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me if this is a project car thats never made a pass at a track. Doesn't look like a lot of work went into the cage, seat or other safety equipment. Many tracks would balk at that thing rolling off the trailer.

Because really, who needs racing seats when you're only going in a straight line.

What a waste of a Mustang.

The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there."

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.” “They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

Extra Credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3"
not "I'm looking for a M3".
