Hahahaha! I can relate. I entered a bid on an ERA Cobra on BAT (Tinder for gearheads) without telling my wife, and within 5 minutes I got a phone call asking "What'd you buy for $4,000?!" It seems they put a hold (which showed up as a charge) on my credit card for their fee (10% of the bid price) - I didn't know they did that. If I won the car for that price, it would have been a great deal, but next time I'll bid in the last minute of the auction. That way I only need to have a difficult conversation IF I get a great deal. It might be easier to get forgiveness than permission.

Instead of the Voodoo, consider the 5.2L XS Aluminator crate motor. List is $20K, but resellers have them for around $17K. 580 HP out of the box for those who want a Coyote on steroids. You give up the howl of the flat plane crank, but with more HP and torque. I believe the engine in the new GT500 is essentially a built for boost version of this engine.

The crate motor does not include the controls pack nor the accessory drive, alternator, AC compressor, etc. So when all done, you are back at $20K. I am seeing these crate motors being put in Factory Five Cobras and Daytonas by a few builders. Still lots of money, but if you have it, not a bad way to spend it.

In my case that would have probably included blood...

It sucks to get old but at least the expectations are lower. 65 mustang coupe, 306, 10.4 compression, 180cc homeported Chinese heads, funnel web, t5z, 4.56 gears in a 9 inch locker
