Im just curious. For the 18-25 age owners, how did you afford such a car? Not bashing you if your parents paid for it, but at that age I couldnt afford the insurance, let alone the car. To put a car this powerful in the hands of an 18 year old is dangerous. Just wondering.


I just turned 22 in March. I got the car back in October and I had to pay a mark up. I got it out of state and compared to what the dealers in California were selling it for especially at that time, I felt I got a good/decent/ok deal. I have had some kind of a job since I was 15, so all of the cars I have had I paid for myself, aside from a few occasions that school interfered with work and my parents helped me out that odd month. Right now I work two jobs and that obviously keeps me really busy. I am a Rep for Nike Golf and then I also work in the pro shop at one of the local courses. So basically my Nike job pays for my GT500 payments and mods and my Pro Shop job is going to pay for the FJ cruiser that I am purchasing for the use in my Nike Job. It is a lot of work, but I love the car. In terms of an 18 year old driving this car, I agree that it is really dangerous. I understand there are some good drivers at 18, but anything can go wrong and I have seen it happen. Being a good driver also means having a lot of experience and you can never get too much. Also if parents are buying this car for their child, they probably will not appreciate the value of the car and drive it a little bit more recklessly then if they had to work everyday to pay for it themselves. My local shop here in California, told me about about a guy that was watching tv with his son and they saw a commerical for the GT500 when it first came out. His son said dad I want that car, so he went a purchased a blue/white one for his son at $89,000. Now if you think that is bad, his son is 13... So he is going to start driving it with his dad at 15 and will be the sole driver at 16 years old. I don't think I need to follow up with any kind of response for that..

When I was 17 (1977) I bought a 1968 GT500 with a really strong 428CJ, two 4 bbls, cam, headers, etc. 4.11 gears and a Detroit Locker as a 2nd car. My primary transportation was a 1976 Cougar with a 460 and 3.90 gears (that thing would stomp the Trans Ams that were the hot ticket in those days). I sold both cars and bought a Porsche. Sometime later I quit driving fast cars and begain driving SUVs. When the 2007s came out, I had to have one as a nostalgia thing. With the exception of the engine sound (doesn't come close to the FE), it has exceeded my expectations. I still cannot believe what the early muscle cars sell for now so I will probably never have another one. This thing will have to do.

At age 17, I had a 65 Impala SS that I put a 427 in. L-88, Phase III in :redcard: . If I remember right, they were rated at 550 hp or thereabouts. Really fast car. Bias ply skinny tires of the time made for easy burnouts. Before you ask, I paid for it myself, had two part time jobs and high school too.

My neighbors hated me. I was too dangerous. :hyper:



Hey nut, the L-88 was one bad azz engine. :rockon:


Back in the 80's I had a 70 SS Chevelle with the LS6 454. :burnout:

I think of that every time the Barrett- Jackson auction is on the tube. :banghead:


The car was from Austin Texas, it had 38,000 original miles it was forest green with white stripes.


It was only painted once, the rest was factory original, I sold it for 15,000 in 1988 to a guy from Ontario he raced it and banged it up twice.


the last I herd he sold it to a guy from Boston thats the last I ever herd of it.


I'll post a pic of it tomorow.

Hit the nail on the head :banana piano:

Baby boomer here who grew up driving all those muscle cars and have always loved cars since I was big enough to "help" my Dad work on the family cars that are some of today's classics! Have loved Mustangs since my best friend's Dad drove their new (novelty 2nd family car in those days) 1965 coupe home from work one hot summer day back in 1965. The first car I bought was my 1969 Mach 1 when I got my first real job and he is still in my garage. Now with all my kids almost out of the house and off the payroll, I wasn't gonna miss the Shelby this time around! Passed on the muscle care fever to my Hubbs and daughter but they went to the darkside :hysterical2:


As one of the many baby boomers, I grew up around all of those muscle cars -- I loved them. When I was 17, I was all set to buy a 68 Mustang from the guy down the street with my own money. Unfortunately my mom stepped in and nixed the deal. She said that a mustang was not an appropriate car for a 17-year-old girl. Naturally, I did not share her opinion (it was my money after all). The thing that amazes me the most now is that I obeyed her and took my money and bought a new Honda 600 sedan instead (which in 1972 wasn't a bad deal because of the oil embargo). The Honda wasn't fast (30 hp, top speed of 70) but it got 50 mpg!
Traded in 99 Cobra Coupe

Proxies 275r45 Front/295r45 Back, Autopower 4-Point Rollbar, MagnaFlow Cat-Backs w/ Black Chrome Tips, coming soon new pulley & chip!!!

After a construction fence fell on my car and took out the paint on the entire left side, I had Ghost Flames
(Tangerine Candy over Metalic Gold Pearl) painted on the hood, front fenders and doors. After incident with deer, rainbow flake was added to gold pearl, the flames appear to flicker -- very cool!

I find this survey very interesting. The general concensus is that the majority of GT500 owners are the baby boomers and that is the main reason for its success, the high demand, and thus ADM. The theory goes that when we (baby boomers) die off, the desire for the Shelby brand will go with us. Almost 57% of those taking the survey either were not born yet or they were toddlers when the Shelby came out and was in its hayday. By the time you folks were of driving age, the price of the Shelby was already way out of reach. I guess a question to the youngsters is, "Why did you buy and where do you think the brand will be in another 40 years?".

My wife says the Corvette is still THE mid-life crisis car. Since Corvettes, Porsches, etc.. are not really muscle cars like a Shelby Mustang I think the 40-something Shelby owners are just the generation that always wanted a Shelby Mustang and not seeking something to satisfy their mid-life crisis. But I might be full of crap. I did order a Mustang from the factory when I was 21 years old. That was a crisis to gain a little speed and performance from Ford without paying the high cost of some foreign car.


I think the Super Snake Package might be the mid-life crisis?
