Ok, please bare with me here. I am only trying to have some fun
Here are a few pics I dug up (Thanks Google!!!) to try and lighten the mood here.
Pic 1. I wonder if it has a 500 under the hood? I'm thinking it just may not
Pic 2. I wonder if this one has one in it too? I'm still thinking not. And who wants to sponser a "subway" LOL
Pic 3. Now, I am almost sure that this doesn't have one, but, look at those LARGE graphics. Makes our prototype ones look really small
Pic 4. Ok, this is one of my ALL time favorite Pace Cars. I wonder if it has a 500 in it damnit, no it don't--Oh well, still love the car though
Pic 5 Now, I think this one may just have a 500 in it----dang it--it doesn't either. But ya gotta love the HUGE flag graphics going down the sides
Pic 6. I put this one one to try and show what it could look like if all of or most of the cars ever got together at a meet. Now, how cool would that be having all of the SS's in a row like that?
Ok, now I am just trying to have some fun here and also trying to point out, that just because it has 427 on the vehicle does not mean it HAS to have a 427 in it. I believe on this one--now, I may be wrong here, but I truly believe that the 427 is representing the amount of miles that the race is. And by looking at the cars I posted, I'm thinking they went the same way too
Hopefully you will all see that I am just trying to have some fun here.
I know, I know Bud!!! LOL!! I know what you are getting at. The funny thing is why didnt they just call it the Shelby 500, 400, 300 etc!! Why play on the 427 thing. IMHO why play on numbers that shelby owners who are known to be anal about there cars and have one because A). They love the performance of the vehicle
. They want to own a special car that the average person can only long to have. C). could be highly collectable one day as the old school one's are. D). Belong to a special group of enthusiests who dont just like there cars, they love them and appreciate them.
Shelby is a passion and a statement that only most shelby owners will ever understand!! It is to bad marketing has to get in the way to cheapen what is already a great thing, they could have done it with more class IMHO. ROBO call's!!! It reminds me of when i dial information and have to listen to 1000 options to get a phone #, personable service is what it is all about. Will i get the package, No. Not because it would not be great to have but by the time i get my car there, get the SS package done and pay duty, 120% of the package price because i live in Canada (dollar difference) and get it home, i could have paid for another GT500. LOL!!!!
This is my opinion only, not the opinion of alot of shelby owners, i do apologise in advance for any feathers i have ruffeled. I hate to point out negative when it should be positive. I hope i can make it to the race!!!
