Car choice for my character?

So my character is the protagonist of a noir/scifi/supernatural story, think Dresden Files sort of thing.

He needs a car of some sort, and right now I'm thinking classic muscle car. He's got a permanent residence, so it's not got to be a mobile armoury/command centre, just a mode of transport. Of course it's got to be quick, in order to escape anythign chasing him. He's a big car fan and proud of his (considerable) driving skills, so it's not going to just be a regular sedan.

Right now I'm thinking a 1967 Shelby GT500, except he's going to have replaced the original V8 with a 2013 model, refitted EVERYTHING in order to make it safer, faster and more responsive than the original.

I'm just not sure about it though. I mean, it fits, and the actual technical specifications aren't a big deal because he's spent some serious time redoing it, but something feels off.

What would you guys recommend he drive?

Disease completely controlled by diet

Time: Present
Where: USA

My MC is a generally healthy male mid-twenties to mid-thirties, fit and very active.
I'm searching for a disease that he self-medicated without knowing, with a high calory diet. He was neglected as a child, so other minor symptoms are Okay but nothing too obvious. He also was not neglected till he was around 5 years old.

I just need a nudge in the right direction

Thank you for help
