What a fun day. We picked up our sweet GT350's on April 6th. Michael and I ordered the Museum Delivery. This was the first double Museum Delivery Shelby has done. What a way to be delivered a car! The whole Shelby gang was there, it made this day very special.
Here's a few pics. More to follow but I better get some work done today...

Congratulations to the both of you. I know personnally what a great feeling it is to take delivery of a GT350. I have had my car for four months, and each time I take it out, I fall in love again. When you post additional pictures, please also indicate which SA options were added to your cars. Have fun and be safe!

It is good to see you picking up your car. I've been watching to see when your car would be finished because I'm CSM# 49 and my car arrived just after yours. I talked to Steve at shelby today and he said that my car is in the production line today. I'm hoping to have a car in a couple of weeks. Did you drive your car home or have it shipped?

Excellent! Imagine someone seeing not one but two GT350's cruising down the road....must have been an awesome sight!
My Stangs (past & present)

1977 Mustang Ghia - White. My first Mustang. The 302 was anemic, but it was the only Mustang I could afford at the time. I still have a soft spot for Mustang II's. Owned from October 1981 to September 1984.

1985 GT Convertible - Black/White Top, 5 speed. I bought this brand new and it's still in my stable. All stock except for Flowmasters, brand new 3 core radiator, and new Black Convertible Top. Owned from August 1985 to present

2006 GT - Redfire Metallic. Premium, 18 inch rims, Shaker 500, 5 speed. 300 HP of fun, but had to sacrifice for the Shelby. Owned from September 2006 to August 2010.

2011 Shelby GT500 - Black with tape stripe delete, Electronics package, SVT Performance Package. Owned from August 2010 to present.

Looks like an awesome experience.

What is with the comments in this thread about the cooling system looking awesome? Is the "Shelby" name on the lower front grid exclusive to the upgraded cooling system?
