He wanted to create a club for people to truly enjoy their cars. He knew the world had changed, and he wanted his companies to meet the needs of the new generation of Shelby owners. His vision was to knit together those people with the owners of early Shelby's and give everyone fun new ways to experience their high performance vehicles.   Mr. Shelby imagined a place where owners could talk about their latest conquests at the track, swap stories, share photos and learn new ways to hot rod their cars!

    DEVASTATED is more like it. But yes, very sad. Passing you guys has been a highlight not just for me but for everyone on our trip. You can't talk about our event without the Shelby club coming into the conversation. It just won't be the same. Next year we'll get on the same day again. Hope you all have a fantastic time on your cruise. jill State Route 49 Vdubs Dubs Around the Lake 8

    I don't think this was posted on TS yet, but it was posted two days ago on the Shelby Facebook page. Jim King passed away June 15, 2018. I met Jim on two different occasions while touring SAI in Vegas. Had conversations with him after tours and he was always nice and was a wealth of knowledge on Shelby history. RIP.

    There are other threads on this. Plus it’s discussed on the interweb. Mine has it. I have about the same mileage. I don’t think it’s a serious thing.

    Here in Canada, my local dealer has already knocked $11,500 off the 2017 GT350s. He's still got about 20 of them on the lot; you can get one for about $65-70K, Canadian $s. Will prices fall further? With the new GT500 on the way, I'm not sure what impact it will have on GT350 owners or existing GT500 owners...will they move to the new GT500? My dealer indicated the new GT500 is going to be north of $100K (in far less valuable CDN dollars) and likely far over MSRP (I hate dealers that do that, but supply/demand rules the day). Will the price point be that high? And keep existing Shelby buyers away? Will production numbers be really low? I don't know. For me, I have a 2011 GT500, Performance White and, yes, it's a garage queen, with only 3,000 km. But, here's why I did not consider the GT350: 1. Not supercharged. Yes, it has that great flat plane crank, but nothing beats a charged Shelby in my humble opinion. The sound is simply awesome. 2. The classic look of the S197 is timeless. Not a fan of the 550 style, personally. Anyway, it's a tough choice. Both are great cars. Wish I could afford both. I'd like to order the new GT500, but I suspect "hyper priced" will be an understatement. I'm hanging on to my 2011, I really enjoy it. And that's the key point !!!

    The problem turned out to be the rocker panel on the drivers side. The first two pushpins that hold it on the car (closest to the front wheel) had worked themselves loose and then the whole panel would shake a little at 50mph making the rattle sound. As it's really close to the door panel, it made it seem like the rattle was coming from inside the car. Anyway, I guess I need to check the push pins on a regular basis.

    My 2007 Hertz had a "Heart" drawn on the oil pan by one of their technicians! Saw it when I crawled under to do an oil change several months after I got the car last year.I guess they all really loved what they were building at that time and knew that these cars were quite special.

    I only have a few, a GT and a couple of Mustangs including a 66 GT350H. I know the toy guy from Pawn Stars will disagree. To me the die casts are the same as a garage queen: Drive it or display it!!!! Put that still in wrappers car in a storage locker or the still in the box die cast in the closet. Get them out where you can see them. PS That doesn't mean I don't keep the boxes

    Hey fellas, I have a question for you all. I know how I feel about this, but wonder how you all feel. As it relates to die cast packaging..... on 1/64’s, do you guys think they need to stay in their sealed pkgs? As for the larger models, should we keep the boxes? After all, we aren’t talking high finance here on these toys. Except for some of the Exoto models and a few others you guys own. Thoughts??? Thx, BB

    SGT driven less than 5,000 miles a year, listed as a seasonal driver, State Farm charges me $700 a year. Living in the People's Republic of Chicago doesn't help even though I rarely drive it and never park it out of my sight.

    Purchased my 2012 Shelby in November. Found a loaded car with 6700 original miles and all the options but the moon roof. Just a side note (November is the best time of the year to buy a car) Having been in the car business for awhile, I can tell you November is bleak when it comes to sales. Nobody spends any money until December. Anyway got the car for 35,000 and i am very pleased. I don't want to hear that you bought your 2014 Super Snake with 2000 miles on it for $18,000. I spent 18 months researching and driving all over the country, and this was the best I could come up with. Anyway, get the car home and it's rainy season in Texas, Freekin Goodyear racing slicks are a bear to say the least on wet roads. After a few accidental lane changes on wet roads and a blow out, ($150.00 for the tow, because I don't have a freeking jack, spare or lug wrench, and $400.00 for a new tire) I get the car back to Texas. I replace the "Good-Slicks) with Michelin road tires. Got a set of 19 and 20 inch Goodyear's for sale cheap! I have since bought a donut spare $80.00, jack $40.00 and folding lug wrench $20.00. Second month I have it, BAM pick up a rock on I-35 (the permanent construction area in Texas). $850.00 windshield Third month, start assembling 4 post lift my wife bought me for Christmas. Had to do some modifying to the ceiling joist to allow the car to be raised enough to get another car tucked underneath. After much measuring and double checking, finally got the clearance I needed. Marked the lift with a DO NOT EXCEED point and tested my work with both cars in place. What I had not counted on was the roof line of the Shelby and the Chevelle are not the same. With the Chevelle on top, no problem, but the Shelby needed another inch to clear. Noticed a crease in the roof of the Shelby while waxing it. Fix A Dent $400.00. Wait it gets better! Backing the Shelby on the lift (wanted to get a picture of both cars facing out) and paying too much attention to the drivers mirror for clearance and too little to the passengers side, ripped the passenger side mirror off the car. $450.00 for the part, $200.00 to install (I installed it myself) The last item is the Outside Air Temp reads 50 degrees all the time. With the temperature ranging from 20 to 90 with this crazy weather, I figure I have a problem. Dealer says he will swap out the sending unit under the bumper to bumper warranty.($3500.00 for zero deductible to 100,000 miles) At first I thought that was a little much, but then I read a few threads on this forum about the cost of replacing an engine and bought the insurance. Now I Just have to find time to get it to him. I currently have 13,000 miles on the car, drive it every other week to and from work (429 miles one way) drive it in any weather, on any roads and park it wherever I want. It is my daily driver, grocery getter, and go to car show car. My wife hates it because I drive like an idiot, it's too loud, and you can't see out of the back of it. (She's the one that said I should buy this and not another Corvette). I absolutely love it, My plans for this car is to drive it to the 100,000 mile mark, then Mod the engine, back half the frame for Pro Street and car show it. I'm already picking up parts and pieces from my buddies as they up grade to bigger and badder builds. I guess what I'm saying in all this is, if your thinking about a Shelby in your future, you cannot find this kind of performance, handling, and ride for the money anywhere else. I LOVE MY CAR!

    Sound. Louder, deeper, more rumble, but yet quiet when not on the gas. No drone. The Mustang GT mufflers are too quiet. Here's a link to my comparison video:

    So, for those that know me it's never too long before I'm looking for another cool Shelby Mustang. I've always loved the 2006 GT-H and that it was the fore father of the SGT. The car that got Shelby back in business. A low mile beauty was listed on eBay with two auctions and no bids. It looked like a great car. I contacted the owner and we agreed on a very fair price. We drove into Chicago area yesterday, did the deal and drove her home. Somehow managed to avoid the rain coming home. I was very excited the get this car. A little history - It was in Hertz Fleet in Denver, sold by auction to McCarthy Ford in WI. Was then purchased by a private seller in WI and then by that owners' brother-in-law in Illinois. The car had 10,089 miles with Hertz. When I bought it yesterday it showed 10,768 on the odometer. There are some imperfections from when it was in rental service, but overall a super clean car with good paint. It was well cared for the past 10 years. BikeBoy can you help post a few pictures for the Shelby community. I have not posted pictures since Photobucket started charging. Thanks, Dave

    Wow I missed that ...it is cool. Now Chris go buy you a 1970 Shelby GT500 and put those letters on the trunk. How’s the temp in the garage.. Got that mustang emblem blacked out yet. That’s a cool wall in your garage. I especially like the PJ boss picture with the 70 and two 69’s . Where did you get that may I ask ? Mongoose gave some flimsy excuse about blowing a hose on his vacuum cleaner or something. He can’t vacuum the house now. He’s probably too busy petting his cat 🐈

    Haha. Hey Mike, I literally just finished my second cup of joe. I landed last night and didn’t get to bed until 11pm mountain (2am eastern). I’m trying to find my glasses now........ you know I can’t do a thing without ‘em!! The a/c is set to 83F in the garage. I went out there as soon as I got here to make sure the “babies” were all OK. It felt nicer out there than in the house!!

    Why? Why make a GT500 when it's already a GT500? Let them make more, convert the originals from Mustangs just like they did back then.

    https://www.pinterest.com/pin/286189751299035308/ This boss 302 was very popular down under . I read that Moffat won 101 races out of 150 over 6 years running this boss .The engine had 485 hp and 8 Weber carbs. It had over 100 different liveries over those years . Look it up on google and you will find some great stories about this car and the driver . The car now is in a collection of 70 race cars in Australia...where else .

    I used AED and they were awesome. The two owners were very organized, you could eat off the floor in the shop, they gave me a lot of great advice for other options I wanted to add (I also did shifter, one piece driveshaft, clutch and suspension) and the work was perfect. They were busy, they get calls and emails all day long with questions so was a little hard to initially get their attention but once they knew I was serious it was all good. Install went perfect and everything looks OEM. If you're in NorCal this is the place to go.

    She's gone sold her yesterday and did not loose any money in the deal. I had a wonderful two years in my CS6 and won trophies at all car shows I entered it into except one (that was a Mopar sponsored show....) so people take notice of the CS6. The gentleman who purchased it, is a car collector and he was more than excited to buy it. It took about 6 months to sell and I received a lot of inquiry's but mostly young guys that can't afford to buy a vehicle without financing it. As you know the CS6 (Ford Mustang V6) only blue books for $6K at the most and when you are asking what I was asking you have to have the cash. That will be the case with any modern day Shelby collectible. Word to the wise, if you want to sell your Shelby you must be patient and advertise, advertise, advertise.... Here is the last pic of her sitting in the driveway just before the car shipper picked it up.

    Since the cars Texas license plate is clearly view-able in the video I suspect not only has this car been flagged by the insurance industry it wouldn't surprise me if Ford has flagged this car in their system. He did Ford no favors when you consider the amount of exposure these videos have received all over the internet. Also since the police were on scene I suspect some sort of accident report was taken which would show up on a future CarFax.

    He was eligible for the trifecta of tickets! Exhibition of speed Failure to control Reckless endangerment just can't fix stupid... even if you have the money. he'll probably fix the car with cash not reporting to insurance and sell it as an clean un-wrecked vehicle, adding to his slimy persona. then buy a new one...

    The driver and support crowd think that almost taking out some kids is fun???? Take to the track! Dumb ass! I hope the car was impounded and he got written up to the max. Not good press for Cars & Coffee.

    Your words 'flat plane crank motor is designed for revs not torque and if you bought a GT350 looking for a drag racing car you would be disappointed' is the perfect statement and should be POSTED in every Ford dealership!! Listen people or you GT350 bashers this car was built for the track and spirited driving period! Its not the 5.8 GT500 monster motor that is a completely different car and chassis and you shouldn't be comparing the two. When Ford brings back the GT500 it'll be completely different from the GT350 so these people saying its not this or that it was never meant to be a drag racer or daily driver. The new GT350 is by far the best Mustang ever built and is why Chevy had to redo the Camaro and the Corvette because the lil ol' GT350 was kicking its ass
