ON THE COVER Ron and Cindy Movinski of Canton, Michigan, have what is definitely a True GT. The velvet beast is built around a healthy 390 4V and C6 automatic as well as all the creature comforts one could want. Ron, like us, likes his creature comforts but not at the expense of powerful performance and original-appearing styling. When we saw the California native GT, all we could say was, “Whoa!” The photo was snapped from the trunk of a speeding Taurus piloted by capable and speedy Robert “the big Kahuna” Mhyrer.
