Make the suspension do it's job by stiffening the chassis
Address weaknesses by adding new geometry to the front and add anti-dive for better braking and cornering
Address the issues with the live axle suspension by changing the geometry to eliminate body roll and put the power down off the corners
Here we go getting our "kicks" on Route 66
Houston... We have lift off!
Wow, that's one big rocking chair...
Gotta love old mining towns
Had to brake 4 Women

Gas stations sure were small back in the day
More tiny gas stations along the route
20 cents a gallon, when was that?
Apparently it was McLean, TX -- 20 cents...
OK, so which way do we go?
Take a right at the leaning water tower -- I thought they were kidding...
Will Rogers and Route 66 -- Symbols of American optimism
Devil's Rope, that sounds like a cool place to stop
Lucy gets a much needed bath after the long drive
Lucy now has her official Route 66 badge of honor

If you're a fan of driving and road trips, chances are pretty good that you've heard of Route 66 or the Mother Road. Today, most travelers stick to the modern interstate highway system when faced with long road trips. But people who own and drive Kenny Brown-equipped vehicles are not “most travelers”. Enthusiasts prefer to take the road less traveled whenever possible. This is precisely what drives two such people, H.A. McCarthy (Mac) and his fellow road warrior, Mary O'Keeffe Tischler and their car, “Lucy”.

The other day someone asked me, "Is the Shelby GT500 your new Cobra R?"…  After some reflection, the comment did resonate with me in fact it remind me of 2003 and 2004, when around 200 Cobra R race cars started showing up at my door.  That’s about the time Cobra-R owners serious about track-days and racing were surpassing the capabilities of their cars and wanted to go to the next level.
