  • Ole Yeller 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

    With its striking yellow paint scheme and neon green accents, this Ford Shelby GT350 isn't your average pony car. That's because it was inspired by one of the best-known fighter aircraft ever to take to the skies. Nicknamed Ole Yeller, the special Shelby GT350 is sort of a road-going version of an especially legendary P-51D Mustang fighter plane, which still holds the record for coast-to-coast travel for a propeller-driven aircraft (5 hours, 20 minutes, set in 1985—if you're counting). A regular flyer even today, the winged Ole Yeller is based in the Legacy Flight Museum in Rexburg...
