I'm proud owner #214, having bought mine a day after it arrived on the lot at Koons Ford, Sterling, VA.  I will NOT vacuum-seal it in the garage ... I will drive it to work daily, test'n'tune it...maybe race it at the dragstrip...and go muddin'.

 

Looking for where the other 499 owners are and what they're doing with theirs.  I can't find a single Google hit or YouTube video of this truck living life outside of a scripted commercial.  Also, no Facebook groups dedicated to it exist (until now... look up my "F-150 Shelby" group).  Hope the other elite owners find this group.

 

I've not changed a thing on this truck and it has taken home something in 5 of 7 fashion shows.  Lookin' forward to taking it to the racetrack this weekend to put "0 to 60 in 4.5" to the test in multiple configurations.  Suggestions welcome.

My guess is most buyers don't know or care that Team Shelby exists?

True, and I have one foot out the door and the other on a banana peel with this club, and I own Shelby F-150 #216, which may soon be the only Shelby I own.

Oddly enough I may re-join the BMWCCA and (probably) be its only Shelby GT owner member. They do a lot of fun events which are more east coast oriented. I haven't actually been a TS member for quite some time. Tried SAAC but unless you own a classic Shelby there you are virtually ignored. MCA is pretty boring unfortunately, geared mainly towards car shows.

I can agree with your assessment on SAAC and MCA, add their biased, amateurish, and unintelligible judging systems, and therefore not satisfying clubs at all. And the Mountain Region TS is no better than your East Coast area for events and activities, and I have been a member since 2012.  In contrast, NCRS and PCA are fantastic.

 

And BTW #214 I would be glad to join your Facebook group, let me know what it is called so I can search for it.

Thanks for offering to join.  Simply go to Facebook and type in "F-150 Shelby" -- I'm the only group.  It's "Closed" and I'll admit you in.  Posting pics of your truck and exploits is the point of the group ... and that will help it gain momentum.  Thanks!

Funny I saw a White with Blue strips go through my neighborhood a few weeks back, I haven't seen it since. It's a gated neighborhood so I'm not sure if it's one of my neighbors or not, hoping to see it again and find out.

It sounded great, went by twice.

Just an FYI, there are also a couple hundred 2017 Shelby F-150 trucks out there now with more to come.

Nobody who is buying a Shelby Truck is going to even remotely care about how it may compare to a Miata.

 

Most people who unfairly compare two items are said to be comparing an apple to an orange,   but you went straight to potato…….

If you were going to buy one of these what color makes this truck look the best?

 

I seen some of the 2017's in Lightning Blue and they look real good, however any year Mustang in White with Blue stripes always look great so does any Ford truck in same White/Blue.

 

Selling my Raptor for other reasons and when I finally get moved I can use a 4x4 more then say waiting for the 2018 Shelby Sport truck 2wd they announced is coming soon. The Shelby F150 is more of a 4x4 than the Raptor and having the lift suits my needs better. The Raptor is bad ass
