Oh please, like that's the stock hood on your Shelby. Give me a break. Dude, Stock is Stock. Pains me to see what people in here see as pure Shelby GT/SC. Your anaolgy is, well flawed. At what point does it become a mod car and not stock?
Please note my question to Roger above. I think it's all after the fact.
Wow. You totally missed the point of what I wrote. Of course the logic seems flawed to you – you misunderstood what was written. Here, let me explain so that maybe you’ll be able to grasp the concept:
First, I agree with you. Just like Roger just posted and from everything I’ve read, heard and seen over the last five years, all Shelby GT/SCs have been modified, or ”Factory Supercharged” if you will, at an authorized Shelby mod shop regardless of the path taken (directly from the SGT production line or returned by the customer). I know some will disagree with this and try to attach a level of pedigree, but the fact remains that each authentic SGT/SC spent time in a mod shop.
I had the authorized Shelby mod shop further modify my car by painting and installing an aftermarket hood. I did it for appearance and practical reasons according to my personal taste – the reason we modify our cars. However, I don’t try to pass my car off as a 1967 Shelby Mustang even though that’s the style of hood I chose to have installed (leads to my next point).
The point I made in my earlier post (through my analogy) is the difference between a “Factory Supercharged” SGT/SC and an independently modified SGT with a supercharger that is presented as an authentic SGT/SC. I admit that the aftermarket sideskirt decals bother me a bit, but not that much. In the end, we all share enthusiasm for the same car and brands. And to that same end, we all know the truth. So I guess I would say that it’s the intended deception by a few that bothers me the most.
