I have been a lurker and occassional poster. Figure I would finally chime in. I am Marc, in the AF going on 29 years this month, retiring next year.

I sold my 04 Competition Orange Cobra last year and purchased my Shelby in October 2012. Not much done to it. I plan on keeping it mostly stock until the Warranty runs out. Some things I have done to is as follows:

Redline Hood Shocks
Bob's Oil Separator
SpeedDawg Custom Shift Knob
JLT Resonator Delete



So, it was looking like rain on Saturday but I took my car to a good friend of mine to be detailed. I thought I knew a lot about detailing until I met Rick. Not only did he have the high dollar detail products, but he had the knowledge as well. Got some good on the job training to keep the Shelby looking good. Here are the pictures that followed. The storm clouds in the background made for some very good pictures. And believe it or not, I made the 45 minute drive home without getting rained on.

Great pictures and your colour is way cool; it was my second choice on colour, but went with the Candy Red.

Congrats Marc! I was stationed at Hill AFB for 10 years. Retired 2 years ago. Enjoy the new car and drive it when you can. I don't miss Utah winters, but I really hate Texas heat!!!!

They're like magazine quality or something.
