That's a good question. And at this point, I do not have an answer. But if we did, how would you all feel? This is "ME" asking, NOT SAI. :headscratch:


Bud

Hey Bud,

That' a tough call. SAI and LVMS would probably lose some of the SS people that already said yes to the package. I'm sure there would be no problem in filling up all 427 spots if it were open to all Shelby's, except for the Dodge cars, pace cars need to go at least 100 MPH . :hysterical:



Just kidding about the Dodge Shelby. Those damn cars are FAST and I would love to own one.

I think most of us "non-SS" owners are just looking to participate in the event... I don't want to upgrade my car in any way, but would love to be at the race and the other events.

Hi ALL!!!!!


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? :headscratch: I'm thinking it just may not :hysterical:

Posted Image

Pic 2. I wonder if this one has one in it too? :headscratch: I'm still thinking not. And who wants to sponser a "subway" LOL

Posted Image

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 :doh:

Posted Image

Pic 4. Ok, this is one of my ALL time favorite Pace Cars. I wonder if it has a 500 in it :headscratch: damnit, no it don't--Oh well, still love the car though :)

Posted Image

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 :hysterical:

Posted Image

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? :happy feet:

Posted Image


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 :yahoo:

Hopefully you will all see that I am just trying to have some fun here.

Enjoy!!!!!!!

Bud



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 B). 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!!!

Your Welcome.

You guys keep talking about "exclusivity" for your Super Snakes by getting this 427 package, I got an E-mail from Shelby offering it to GT 500, GT 500 KR, and 40TH anniversary cars, that basically covers any body who is willing to pay 6K for fender badges and race tickets. Where is the "exclusivity" in that?
This is the way I see it... 427 sets of badges @ $6,000.00 each = $2,562,000.00 Not a bad pay day for any company in this tough economic times is it?
I wish I were in the " SPECIAL LIMITED PACKAGE" bussines. I can't wait to see what else they come up with.
Sorry if I burst any body's bubble.

Ya well they are obviously having trouble in filling the 427 orders. There is not much left in the exclusive club when owning a new GT500. I am unloading one of my new ones and going to buy an old school one, just watching the prices of the old one's drop too. In another 10yrs of recession i might be able to afford the 67GT500 i have always wanted. LMAO!!!

Got the full details today. I was told by SAI that only 177 SS signed up and that the balance 250 were offered to KR, 40th and GT500. Pretty bad decision since we allready paid for SS exclusivity and then find out about this change.
Very dissapointed in SAI.

the whole package is bad marketing and delutes the Shelby brand. let's get back to building/producing performance cars.

I've got the solution...just add the words "Pace Car". And no more hiding the peanut.
