Sorry to hear about your 'loss', but it's good to use your head in financial/family matters.

Matt, a little bird told me that there is a possibility of you rejoining the Shelby family sooner rather than later... I even got to see pictures of what might be and love it, great color combo.

Hope that goes well for you and it would be nice to hang out at the Shelby Bash this year.

After much thought, I sold my 2008 GT500 today. I owned for about three years and put 9k miles on it. I was getting way over my head with it and I could not stop buying more parts and accessories for it, so it had to go. It was a very tough decision to make, but the wife and I are buying a house next year, so I had to start sheding some overhead and debt. I only lost 2k dollars from the price I paid for it two years ago and I put about 10k worth of aftermarket parts on it. I was able to sell the Shelby, pay off my debt and still have cash in my pocket. I just ordered a 2013 Raptor and my payments on it will be cheaper than the Shelby.

The Shelby went to a good home. I was just hoping for it to go out of state or across town, but NO, the new owners live across the street from my sister!

We (wife and I) are very thankful to all of the wonderful Shelby friends we have met over the years at the Bash and at Fabulous Fords Forever. I will be at both next year, just look for a white colored 2013 Raptor!

Sorry to hear about having to sell the Shelby. On another note, you will love the Raptor!! I have the molten orange with the luxury package and cannot drive it enough. The Raptor rides like a cloud. I get as much or more attention in the Raptor as I do the Shelby. When my wife and I take trips we drive the Raptor because of the room and how comfortable it is. We drove to Ohio over Thanksgiving and three different peolpe gave us the "thumbs up" just on the way there.
If you decide to look at a few mods I would suggest the middle perch mod and nice cat back exhaust. Enjoy the truck, you will love it.
