A few more pics. Say what you want about Shelby, when it comes to delivering a car to a customer they are hard to beat. How many companies have the President, VP of Sales, VP of Manufacturing and VP of Fun there when a car was delivered? I kind of slid in on the coattails of the Mayor of Team Shelby but they were all there.

Ok one quick story that happened today. I got pulled over by California's finest for going 80 mph but I was "gaining" on the cars in front of me. I was going 75. He asked for my license then starts asking some questions about the car. I asked him if he wanted to see the motor and he said sure! We talked for about 10 minutes then he handed me my license back and said drive careful. I said thanks and hopped back in my car.
I looked in the review mirror and he was taking pictures with his cell phone! Only in a Shelby.

That sux, but at least they were cool about it. Everyone is going 75-80 there anyway. Motorcycle or patrol car? I ask because I know one of motorcycle guys and he's a fan of the Shelby's ever since I got mine.
