Today we were traveling down US 23 toward Columbus, Ohio when I saw a 
strange looking Ford Mustang passing me.  It was the new body style but 
was painted dull green with blacked out wheels.  The front spoiler had 
fog lights like the last generation Mustang Cobra and was 
primer-coated.  The car had Michigan manufacturer plates and the top of 
the dash was crowded with gauges, dials and a notebook computer mounted 
on a stalk.   It was pretty sure it was a 2007 Cobra test mule (later 
confirmed from online sources) and I wanted a photo.  I grabbed my 
trusty LC-5 Lika-Leica, ready to grab some shots.  I hit the power 
switch and nothing!  The battery was dead (happens pretty quickly with 
this model).  The driver saw me and hit the gas.  Yep, it was a Cobra 
as it rocketed away leaving my Bimmer 325i in the dust.  Digital is 
nice, but I would have had that shot with my M4-2!
