Just a little heads up. I got home today from a week long trip and found a box from Shelby. In it was the bottle of Tequila, the 427 certificate, the signed visor emblem, a dog tag with chain, and a white 427 SS model.

The sun visor badge was not numbered either. Even as late as the March update, the tequila was still being signed. I thought it would look like the 85th anniversary bottle also. My bad on that one.

Based on the March 11, 2009 updated posted by SAI.....

Other items:
Sun visor badges and AsomBroso Tequila are awaiting Carroll's signature. These items will be shipped separately when completed along with a special edition die-cast and a Certificate of Authenticity. Watch for further communication.


So something isn't right here...

Although I still like the package and don't regret my decision to purchase it, I am disappointed in the fact that the package content seems to change with no advanced notice and/or upfront explanation. I understand that unforeseen issues may necessitate changes but then they should be upfront with the information and come up with an alternate plan (as they did with the underhood badging) or simply compensate us in some other way (such as discount coupons for Shelby Parts or the Team Shelby Store).

I'm still trying to find out what happened to the "Grille Badge" that was noted and pictured in the original 427 package release flyer. That appears to have been dumped from the package but to date I cannot find any explanation as to why and what was substituted in its place. Anyone have any information on this?

It appears as if SAI is making changes on the fly and hoping no one will notice the changes. IMO I don't think this strategy is working and what really frustrates me is that they have all my money and I am limited on my options.

Just my 2 cents.....sorry for the long post....

Not sure about the Grille Badge, but when I was working with SAI regarding my 427 stripes it was mentioned to me that Mr. Shelby was not in the best of health and he would more than likely not be signing the Tequila. They said they did not want to hold up the 2nd shipment.

I'm kinda glad that I haven't received my package yet, I'm really not in the mood to be disappointed and feeling let down by Shelby Automobiles. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there was a mistake and someone is on the ball to fix it immediately. The PAID customers of the 427 Limited NASCAR edition deserve to receive what they paid for and what was promised...especially now during economic crisis.

I was told by my contact that led me throught the process that a decision was made not to sign the bottles. I was told none were signed and none would be. I have to admit that I am dissapointed. As a long time fan of Shelby i really wanted that momento on my shelf. :cry:

I am thrilled with the performance of my car and I guess thats what most are looking for. I have a few minor issues with some pieces/parts, but SAI is working through those with me and I am getting great customer service.

I am hoping that SAI will take pity on us Shelby fanatics and maybe work something else out with us since the tequilla thing didnt work out :unsure:

Amy/Bud....if you are reading this anything signed that would hang on the wall or sit on the shelf in my office would be appreciated by me (and I gather many others in this forum). For me, the decision to purchase the 427 Package was much more about Mr. Shelby, the momentos (and my hope to maybe meet him at the race that didnt happen) than the car. All the performance was in the SS package.

Yup, time for an "427" update by Shelby personnel regarding any changes in the package.

I too added the 427 package and cooling upgrade to my Vista Blue SS; the car shoud be finished in a few weeks from what Bud said.

Let me try to add some clarity on some of your concerns.

First the grille badge: the proto-type or conceptual design, did have a badge. Final design; it did not make it. Partly due to the, already installed, Super Snake or 40th. badging which existed on a majority of the cars converted.

Sometimes concept does not work and we need to make the change. If you look at the size of that logo, you would be blocking off a significant portion of the cold air intake. The badge would be too big.

On the bottle: It was too awkward a shape for the bottle to be signed. None were signed. It was too much for Carroll. We apologize for any inconvenience it caused.

Many who attending the event had the opportunity to have items signed. We provide the signed visor badge, signed certificate, limited edition die cast. Yes, all part of the program but think about the meaning of this word for a moment, Inaugural. It was the first event and there will never be another first and everyone who chose the package is part of Shelby History.

As always, if you have issues or concerns, please contact us directly. It proves to be the most effective and efficient means of communication.

Hi Roger, Well besides our bottles not being signed, 1/3 of mine was gone. This is two things that have been shipped to me and I'm batting a thousand. My hood was screwed up and the seal is still on the bottle but it is not full. I have tried UPS and got no where on the hood. The stuff I think is worth something is apperantly not to any one but me. I know I'm not that big of a purchaser but for some reason I really feel like that the only thing that really matters is that I keep ordering stuff, sending money and keep quiet about everything. Part of this is my fault because I,m not a NASCAR fan. I did not know that a convertible could not even be a PACE CAR. That is MY stupid. If I'm wrong please let me know. I all so posted about ALL of the Victory Lane pictures. Is there going to be a chance to ever see or get them. Just letting off a lot of vent up frustration over this whole deal.

While I wasn't one who purchased this package (for one I don't have a Shelby worthy of this package, like a GT500, SS, 40th, etc...), I must say for those that did, you have a lot of patience with this whole ordeal!

For starters, the tickets didn't start showing up for them till a week or so before the race! Then the shipment of badges etc... for the car took forever. Now the remainder of the package is being shipped without important pieces to the whole package. While I'm sure most can understand and appreciate the issue with getting Mr. Shelby's signature on the bottle, can't fully understand that the communication coming from SAI stated that these items were in final stages of being signed (this was back during the race when this was stated).

It was those receiving their final shipments that "Communicated" to the rest of this group as to not receiving the signed bottle not SAI. Why wasn't another signed memorabilia sent with this package to make up for the un-signed bottle? Would it have been that difficult to put together a collage of photos from the 427 race and have Mr. Shelby sign?

Some received their final shipments weeks ago while others still sit here today without it. Not only without the package, but also no word from SAI as to where it's at? Any communication that has come out for this package (as well aso many other things from SAI, registry is one that comes to mind) is vague and misleading!

Come on SAI, Communicate to this group that has paid for this package months ago as to when they can expect the rest of thier stuff. Is it that difficult to reach out to each one of them with a personal communication?

Roger you are correct Communication is key!

I had great communication and good response with Donnie B. I sent an email to Roger last week and asked about some of these issues, and he responded in three words. Needless to say say he was not very effective or efficient with his three words. :headscratch: John Walker isn't there any more and he was a great help too, as was Donnie . I sure hope Bud and the girls don't leave.
