I'm about 23K, Dennis did a great job!!!

I love it every time I drive it, the sound is intoxicating, sometimes I think about selling and after one drive that thought gets erased quickly.

Yeah Dennis and his guys do great work,  I too had though about selling a couple years back, but all it takes is a quick blast down the road and I realize I will own this car until i'm to old to drive it! 

Every time I see the dash plaque and Carroll's signature on the dash , it always feels as special as the day I brought her home, you cannot drive this car and not have a smile from ear to ear.

Yesterday we celebrated 10 years since my Shelby winked at me from the corner of Fort Mill Ford's showroom. It was love at first site. After a short test drive I was sold. I've enjoyed 24,770 miles so far, all with a big grin on my face. While I don't post here as much as I once did, I do check in often and it's great to see some of the same folks here that welcomed me when I first joined. I'd always heard " you never sell a Shelby" so when the 90 day trial period was up on the Sirius radio I inquired about a Lifetime contract. I believe the price I negotiated was $240. What a deal!

Funny story, last week I drove it down to Charlotte, about 120 miles, for an appointment with my financial advisor. During our conversation he asked me how long I'd been retired. After a little thinking I told him I was pretty sure it was 14 years, either 2003 or 2004. One of those "senior moments". Anyway, he later asked what I drove down and I told him the Shelby. He'd seen it several years before and wanted to walk out and see it. He's a bit of a car guy. Walking up to it, he asked me how long I'd had it. I immediately said, "in 6 days, it'll be 10 years". His responce was, "you had to think about how long you've been retired but you know to the day when you bought the Shelby. Strange"! I just laughed. Enjoy your Shelby's, I know I am.

Did you do the Bilstein's?  Just curious if it made a difference.  I might drop mine off at Tasca next year for my yearly maintenance, I have several small issues I could have them address like my Fuel Guage not working and I can have them install my Watts Link.

Mine is locked into a garage for three weeks because of a alley repave and I missed the Santa Monica Shelby show otherwise #182 woulda been there. Bought it new at Mills Ford Anaheim as my first new car purchase at 39 years old have since gotten a Boss302 as a companion. The Shelby is still a better looking car and gets the garage while the boss is my daily driver. SGT is still all orig with the addition of the standard shelby adict stuff. Stripe are oem and look great and warped scoop adds character. One of the better decision was to get a set of 20 in Carroll Shelby wheels, the CS69 limited editions (for the shows). Track the car when I can and always push it to threshold. Absolutely the coolest mustang I've had and it brought me back to people when I was wrapped up in myself. Thanks to Robert also for getting me to use the internet when team shelby was stangs unleashed.
Can I please get a "Green" Shelby : )

I didn't get the Bilsteins done yet, I am still having the issue with the miss fire code coming up on the car, I thought Dennis had fixed it but it came back after about 300 miles. The shocks are still on my list of things to do, but i probably wont get them on until the new year.
