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!

    I just saw someone on Facebook share info about this. At first I thought it was fake. I don't know what Shelby or Ford or whoever was thinking, but I think it's WRONG to use GT-H and call it "Heritage." The H in Shelby GT-H has always been for Hertz. The black and gold paint scheme and GT-H name should only mean one thing... the Hertz Rent A Racer, the 1,001 GT350Hs they made in 1966, the 500 GT-H coupes in 2006, the 500 GT-H convertibles in 2007, and the 171 GT-H coupes in 2016. Don't like this idea at all.

    Recently we did have a promotion for the 2006-08 GT/GTH owners where a optional interior upgrade was included as part of the GT/SC package at no charge. Although this promotion has expired if you email me your contact info I'll walk it over to our sales department and have them take good care of you. If you call our sales department directly you will be told the promotion has expired so send me an email at stevent@shelby.com FYI, this customer good will gesture I'm offering is limited so please don't email me in January saying that you want to take me up on this.

    In just about any High heat area of the country it is almost paramount to have your house split in to two zones instead of 1 big unit. One of the first things I did was replace a single 5 ton unit with 2 three ton units and split the cooling of the house in to 2 zones. The heat here in Texas over the past 5 summers has caused me 3 outages but I was never without a cool part of the house to go to. Or if you don’t want to go to that expense you can always put a small “mini split” unit somewhere in the house for about $1500 and that way you will always have a cool spot as a back up plan. In BB’s case, he could put a mini split in his garage to keep his garage queens comfortable year round and if his house AC goes out again he won’t have to get a hotel. He can just go out in the garage and fire up the mini split and sleep in the comfort of that big, bloated, and primer coated Challenger………......

    Torque news is wrong. Here are the sales figures for the USA in 2018. ps: I don't have the sales figures for "worldwide" handy, but I guarantee you the Challenger and Camaro are NOT outselling the Mustang Worldwide either.

    I bought my my 2014 GT350 with 273 miles on it in March. I have the Whipple 525 HP Chrome Whipple S/C and all the other options u have listed. My car is one of the recall cars (airbags). I paid $50,500 for it. They. wanted $63,500 for it when we started the four month negotiations last fall. I now have 1900 miles on it and I love it.

    Well I think there is something special about the 16 GT-H and if there will only ever be 171 of us that appreciate it, then that is what it is. If nothing else, the 50th Anniversary and the most HP that that made it's way into the Shelby Hertz rental fleet set these apart. The 06/07 body style (which I like a lot) was still retro. I rented #135 06 and loved that experience. The 16 is modern styling, leaving retro behind. To be honest, I did not care much for the current body style until I spotted the GT-H. The 16 GT-H treatment brought out the beast in that car. I just didn't see it before. Now I can't stop looking at it. I agree that Hertz employed poor marketing in unloading the cars. But secondary market determines the value over time and we are no where near that time yet to determine what the market value of these cars will be. Respectfully, I don't see these dropping into the $20's. As far as the last dozen left, they are said to be bottom of the barrel cars. I find it very difficult to accept a blank statement that 16 GT-H's are valued at $38K now, based upon the last of a poor marketing campaign. With these cars, it is all about condition, condition and condition. And then condition. Hertz has them priced at in the $38-39K range, but many of the non-Hertz cars for sale are above that. We need to get these last 12 out of the way. And depending on condition, we may see them re-appear again. I am guessing most of us will be die hard owners, and the supply on the market will not be that great. On another note, there seems to be about 5% of the 06/07's for sale at any given time. So, if 5% is the norm, then once the 16's are all off the market, we could see 8=9 cars for sale at any time. I would guess lower. I remember posting a while back that I thought the 16 GT-H's would sell out December 2018. We will see! Good discussion with differences of opinion. Time will tell. Frankly, I don't care much - I doubt you will ever see my #130 up for sale. When I am gone, my son wont sell it either. If you are reading this and a long term owner, read my post about the Engine ECM - once I write it up. Brent

    Not sure if I posted here so FYI, 06H0050 GT-H/SC done back in Sept/Oct 2009 at Shelby @ their Las Vegas Motor Speedway facility. Paxton serial # 066 (kind of cool) Thanks Bud Man, Amy, Gary P & Gary D. Exciting times back then. Had everyone on the GT-H certificate that owners get sign my dash along with Cleo Shelby.

    The more I think about this the more irritated I get! I was kinda cool with it at first because it was a nice car, but now I'm realizing that Shelby American is destroying a Heritage, not creating one!

    I wanted to share my buying experience with everyone. I was in a quandary as my 2007 convertible is #79. 2016 #79 is available, as stated above. I couldn't bring myself to buy that car with the horrible repair work done to it. I wanted an accident free and complete (all Hertz GTH parts there) car. I had narrowed my search down to a top 5. All of them were in California. I am in Virginia, so I was going to have to add in transportation fees, or airline tickets to get it. I found car #54 in Winston Salem, NC which is drive-able from where we are. Car #54 was missing the winglets and the floor mats, which scared me, since I had been reading they were no longer available. I called Jeremy at Shelby and asked if these parts were available if I purchased this car and he advised yes they were. The car was accident free, so we took the plunge. We purchased Car #54 with this in mind. I was able to negotiate the price of the car by advising Hertz of the missing parts and how much they cost. My wife and I drove to Winston Salem and picked up the car. I was able to order the parts I needed from Jeremy and am in the process of getting the car put back to complete. My advice is to find the best car for what you want. I read the dealer in Arizona wouldn't budge on the price for #79, which is a shame for a car that needs stripes and a grille. We are very happy with our purchase and finally took it to our local cars and coffee this morning. Ken

    Yup, that about sums it up! I once had a doctor tell me to cut down on my beer drinking.... my new doctor and I talk about where to get a good IPA during my visits. Have I made some poor choices in my life... yes! Will I make more ... yes! Do I dwell on it... no!

    Moved in! Whew. Got the tv and intranet working - and the hot water heater! Pups are adjusting nicely. Lotta stuff to get sorted and placed. Real nice upgrade from the previous joint. And - its ours! Had some good friends from work get everything moved. Can't beat friends! I can't lift as much as I used to - or for as long! Little Tony is showing signs of old age - poor guy. I have to carry him down the steps off the back porch to the yard and carry him back up. He's 14. Bugatti still has agility. I've moved too many times. Its never fun. Like when I moved from CT to Charlotte! Very stressful. This - is my last move! Wondering how long I should wait before letting the neighbors meet the Rufstang. Been just putting up and down the street so far. They need to see some black strips soon! And - Hear It! ("That's that crazy old guy who just moved in....")

    A disappointment? No way!! It's the bomb. Don't let the negative title of this thread deter you.
  38. 3 points
    First, I can understand your disappointment on the items for sale. That said I hope you can understand that while the 2006-07 GTH and the 2007-08 Shelby GT saved Shelby (put aside licensing for GT500) they are old news with a total of fewer than what? 10,000 owners? Take that number and be the owner of SA for a moment. A small company like Shelby can't carry the cost of inventory hoping one of those walks in the door and buys a t-shirt or hat. Instead you sell items with a broader appeal, like the "S" Snake hat you mentioned, and hopefully sell out. When the SGT first came out there were a lot of SGT items in the old gift store and we bought them up! I have t-shirts, hats, coffee cups, shot glass, etc., and It's unlikely I'll ever need or want to buy any more. That further reduces the market potential. A company of Shelby's size can't keep ordering in the numbers needed to meet a sale price and sell enough to make a profit for a car that's 10 years old with a limited addressable market. The numbers likely just don't work. It's not meant as a slight just a reality! As for the tour...it's unfortunate that this part of the company history was neglected. Perhaps it was that tour guide? The SGT was the first time Shelby and Ford had gotten together to do a pre-title car since the 1960's and a significant part of the Shelby Story. Perhaps a training issue?
