I'm sure many will laugh, but my introduction to Mustangs, and what made me crave them, was Charlie's Angels.  That Cobra II clicked something in my brain, and I had to have it.  (and no, it wasn't Farrah, I was a Jackie guy).  I didn't know about power from before then, since I was too young to drive, so I didn't know any better.  My first Mustang was a '77 fastback that I was going to clone into a Cobra II (never thought I'd find one, so I went with the next best idea).  it had a 302, and seemed to have plenty of power.  Lo and behold, about a year and a half later, I actually found a '76 Cobra II in the local paper.  Bought it as fast as I could lay my hands on some money.  That only that the 2.8L, but still seemed to have some power to it.  Unfortunately, a malfunctioning stop light turned that one into a horseshoe around a light pole.  And that's how I ended up with my current '64.5.  If I'm lucky enough to get the Shelby I want next year, then I'll finally get to experience some real power.  So, for my age group, we didn't grow up with cars with power, unless someone was lucky enough to have an older Mustang.  Probably why I don't get all excited over HP numbers, I don't know the difference.

Great story. I also remember watching that show as a kid. I preferred Farrah though. What kind of Shelby do you want?

I was always weird.  I preferred Jackie to Farrah; Mary Ann to Ginger (which is really weird cuz I love redheads); Janet to Chrissy.

As for the Shelby, my dream car would be a 40th Anniv KR, white with blue stripes, but I'll be happy with an '07/08 GT500, same color.  When I saw it come out back in '06, I was having flashbacks to that Charlie's Angels car, cuz there's a lot of similarities.

       Back in the day you were only weird if you grew up thinking Bosley was the hottest angel........today, even that is not weird.

 

      Also, it isn't weird that you preferred Mary Anne over Ginger on Gilligan's Island. She consistently out polled Ginger back in the day by about 3 to 1 and also got about twice as much fan mail. Mary Anne was also a hell of a lot smarter than anybody else on that island including the professor, because she is the only one who negotiated being paid in syndication and she has made millions over the years from it while the rest of the cast got zilch.

      I never thought the professor was that smart. He could make a radio out of bamboo and coconuts, and a bunch of other contraptions but he couldn't figure out how to patch a hole in the boat?.......

 

Jackie also in many cases out polled Farrah.

 

The hottest angel was Cheryl Ladd.........she still looks good even today.

 

Ah well back to topic......wasn't somebody trying to sell on '08 KR???

I've had the pleasure of meeting Dawn Wells a couple times at ComicCon, and some of her promo pictures that she has available to sign are just incredible. :drool:

Mary Ann for sure. Jaclyn Smith is still a very attractive mature woman. She and Cheryl Ladd have both done some very good work since Charlies Angels.

No, we're still talking about KRs, just a little tangent, cuz sometimes attractive women make guys forget what they're talking about.  And the topic had pretty much run it's course and evolved naturally.

Isn't that the truth. Life is way, way, too short to concern ones self with an internet forum thread getting "off topic".

Having been in sales all my life I can say, regarding anything's "value:" it's worth whatever someone is willing to pay.

Find someone who wants a KR (or any item) so bad they can taste it and suddenly you'll see a sold price many thought impossible. It may just take a bit longer to find that person, but it happens all the time.

I'm not worried about whether my '09 KR appreciates or depreciates in the coming years because each time I fire her up and cruise around it give me my money's worth tenfold. That's the price of admission I guess.

Oh, forgot to add: MaryAnn for me too! (Wink)

^^^^^^^^^^^^When you mention this, it reminds me of this from this past year........................

 

Like I said, this was an auction from late last year.............

First of all, what looks wrong with this description??..................

 

005_zpsncs6hrax.jpg

 

Moving up.............

 

006_zpsmi0hm2md.jpg

 

Going much bigger than "real world" for a car of this color, condition and miles (too many examples to list from eBay "completed" sales for at least $15K less)...........

 

003_zpsaxdamwkw.jpg

 

and the happy buyer/family.................

 

002_zpsavvizd3m.jpg

 

Is this car an "upfitter package" 605hp car, or is this a buyer, as you mentioned above someone who has not done his homework and is immediately buried in his used GT500KR investment?

 

 

If it is/was an entry Super Snake power level 605hp GT500KR as up fitted by Shelby, that is/was a Great buy, if it was incorrectly labeled by B-J Auctions as 605hp in the pre-auction literature and this buyer assumed all GT500KR's were 6xxhp, then that is an uninformed buyer.

 

 

Because this Silver/Blue GT500KR sold for the amount shown above, can $59K be realistically used as a "real world" quoted value for a 2008 GT500KR of this condition and miles, or was that ass you mentioned above, more of a fluke than reality? I think we all know the answer.

For a short period of time a few years ago I went shopping for a 1976/77 Cobra II. I found some nice examples and also some not so nice. I just couldn't get past the tiny oem wheel/tire combination. I liked the overall oem look (very 70's), but Pinto sized wide tires? My though was "possibly" buy a set of the first year alloys that were an option of the 1973 Mach 1 (which look very similar to the oem Cobra II alloys) and do a 5 lug conversion using those similar looking 73 Mach 1 alloys just to beef up the Cobra II look while also keeping it oemish looking. In the end I regained my senses and moved away from that idea, however, I still appreciate a clean original Mustang or Cobra II from that era, they are seldom seen.

 

I remember Hot Rod magazine featuring a 1974 Mustang II hatchback with a 428 stuffed between the fenders and tucked rear tires, 10 seconds all day back then and dependable (as dependable was back then), that was a cool looking car!! I re-read that magazine feature many times and drooled over that FE powered Mustang II back in the mid-1970's.

 

 

Yep, I remember Chas. Angels, the girls and their Mustangs.............really cool!!

That was probably an upfitter package car. It looks like it has 20" Alcoas. No way anyone pays that much for a regular KR now.
Speaking of 605 hp Super Snakes, a beautiful low mile 2008 recently sold for $46K. I've seen them sell for less. These 605 hp versions are now selling what KRs are now.

It doesn't have 20" or the interior of the upfitter package - It does have the upgraded supercharger and gauges.

Carroll signed the drivers side roof --- maybe not sure on the documentation.
