    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.

    Howdee fellas and fellow diecast collectors. I was at Target today in the Hot Wheels area, and a thought crossed my mind. I wanna see if you all agree or have any thoughts regarding this. I had one of each of the 50th Hot Wheels / Old school HW button in my hands...there are 5 different ones in this particular collection. As I was looking at the $5.49 price tag, per......It occurred to me that of late, the wheels (particularly the rims) are all the same anymore. HW’s has seemingly cheaped out on design in this area. Too often anymore the rims on the cars are not true or correct, or even remotely close to the right style, and for me I have less and less interest in grabbing one of these with ugly rims anymore. Especially for a $5 price tag!!! Am I off base on this ?

    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.

    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

    Hey...Mongoose FYI. This isn’t something little Bailey does . .Invite the neighbors cat over and sit on my little 64 GTO. This is what our black cat did back in 1979. Hey come on over Felix and let’s sit a spell. Shot gun ! That’s cat talk for I got the roof seat. That was my first collector car , but those cats could care less. Cat prints all over the car the next day.Thanks fellas . Those are felines for yah.. but I still love em ....maybe ! Three deuces and a 4 speed and a 389 .....I can Still hear that song today.

    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 .

    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.

    Great stories gents. On the Recaros, I didn't like them at first either and seriously considered ordering one with the convenience pack, but the Recaros have conformed to my ample frame after a few drives, around 1,500 miles and they are actually quite comfortable on a long drive. Could use better lumbar support, but overall I'm thrilled with my 2017 in Ruby Red. I believe this version of the GT350 will be quite sought after in the years to come.

    You and me both CD3! I went in determined to order an '18 GT with mageride, performance pack, and variable exhaust. I wanted to see how the recaros felt, and they ended up letting me test drive the GT350 instead. It turned out that back on July 24th, Ford was still not taking orders for the '18 GT and they gave me a price on the '17 GT350 with no markup at all. Needless to say, I went with the car that faster, built better, and sounded... omg. I have Voodoo-head. That's a thing, right? Never got the sound of the engine out of my head. I'm a happy owner and I hope your GT350 will make you just as happy.

    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...

    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
