    Had to take the intake off but it wasn't bad at all. Found the vacuum line. I extended it a few inches to give me some slack to make it easier for the manifold to go on. Manifold went on easy and all is good now. Going to register the car sometime this week.

    Finally got my ambient air temperature to work. Quite by accident. I hit a piece of trash on the highway late on night and put a gash in my front spoiler. I ordered a new one and as I removed the old one, I noticed one of the wires were crimped. Basically the wires were pinched and almost cut completely through. That's why the read out in the dash would give out crazy numbers when it was raining and the car was underway. I rerouted the repaired wires and and my temperature gauge works perfectly. I didn't have to reset anything. So if your temperature gauge doesn't work, check the wires.

    Below is the text from the SAI press release: LAS VEGAS – June 8, 2017 – An initiative to explore new business opportunities has resulted in a special one-off Shelby version of a 1997 Ford Mustang by Shelby American, Inc. The car was recently delivered to its owner in Central Texas after the team at Shelby American reimagined the car as if the company had built it new in 1997. “Shelby American has an extensive history of creating experimental cars and one-off customer vehicles during the 1960s,” said Joe Conway, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American. “Because we’re still hot rodders at heart, we accepted this project in that tradition as part of our global business expansion initiative. Our goal was to create new opportunities for the company with projects that inspire the staff as we apply new technologies to other programs.” Shelby American’s roots with these types of projects stretch back to one-off cars like the “Green Hornet” and “Little Red” from Shelby fifty years ago; the company’s history includes experimental cars like the twin turbo Ford Shelby GT500 named “Code Red” in the 2000’s. An unusual opportunity from Central Texas was the latest in this line. “Joseph Tice of Central Texas owned a 1997 Mustang GT and approached us to build a one-off car, as if there was a Shelby version offered that year,” explained Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American. “He wanted it to look OEM, but feature contemporary technology and performance. It was much more of a challenge than anyone initially thought. The car was in a state of partial assembly when it arrived at Shelby American in Las Vegas. First, a “creative brief” with the parameters, goals and vision for the car was created. Then a handpicked team of craftsmen, led by Vice President of Operations Vince LaViolette, completely took the car apart. No system was left untouched, from the interior to the new drivetrain, brakes, cosmetics and suspension. “We literally took the Mustang down to the bones,” said LaViolette. “We hand built a supercharged 4.6L engine, rebuilt the transmission to handle it, transformed the suspension and added an incredible braking system. Inside and out, it became a showcase, but retains a factory feel. It even has a special badge, ‘CSM100SPECIAL’ with a serial number for the official Shelby Registry. It’s the ‘Shelby that might have been’ if we’d been turning out Ford Mustang based cars in 1997. It’s a total sleeper that can kick tail on the street and mystify people with its unique provenance.” Delivered on May 16, 2017, to a very satisfied Mr. Tice, the “Racer Red” 1997 car includes: Performance equipment Rebuilt 4.6L V8 engine P1SC Procharger with Intercooler Flowmaster Exhaust Eibach Suspension upgrade Adjustable Clutch Quadrant Short Throw Shifter Performance Driveshaft Body components New Shelby paint with factory racing stripes Body Appearance Package Performance wheels and tires New hood Shelby engine badge Interior components New complete interior including seats, carpet and dash pad Shelby gauge Pod Custom programs are not new as Porsche has its “Exclusive” tailoring program and even Aston Martin has its “Q” program. But this project went much further than most carmakers. “We built this car for someone who believed the only limits should be his imagination,” said Conway. “We’ve not yet determined if we’ll repeat this type of project again, but it certainly challenged our team. The success of this car certainly demonstrates the technical prowess and capabilities of Shelby.”

    Not a waste, Bill built this building to preserve his GT-500, which is rust free. He rebuilt the 428 PI in the early 1990s and saved everything.

    41 Years ago (1978) it was not an Iconic Car. They were selling for $2,500 to $3,000 at the time, some times even less. In 1983 I could have bought a 68 GT 500KR for just $3,200.

    Mongoose I want to thank you for the heads up on this model....... I just got in under the wire when I ordered it that morning because they sold out that same morning. She looks real good and I especially like the white over spay on the undercarriage. That’s a nice touch and a kick in the pants IMO. Number 20 is cool and I’m curious what number I got. They still haven’t mailed it but I’m not home anyways. After looking at your pictures I’m glad I ordered one and look forward to putting her next to the two exoto GT 40’s. You da man Mongoose and again thanks for the help on this model. Please send $164 ASAP ..... Later slo lane .

    From Car & Driver these mules just keep on trucking. The rear looks more rounded even in these telephoto shots. These are high speed testing pictures at the GM proving grounds in Milford Michigan recently. See the helmets. A lot less camo on these babies. The black velcro strips you see on the doors and hood were used previously to obscure the Corvette's shape. Now that the car is officially confirmed, it seems the company has decided to let these prototypes breathe a bit more.

    This sums it up The 2019 Mustang GT350 is a brilliant performance machine. It already had the engine to inspire. Now it has more grip and more ability to lay it down. It’s even badder brother, the GT350R, will be updated for 2020, and the next-generation, 700-plus-horsepower GT500 is coming later this year, also for 2020. Together, this trio of snakes will be the cure for the milquetoast SUV blues that have infected America.

    So I guess unless you are 100% in favor of a topic that is mindless drivel and (1) contributes exactly nothing to the Shelby brand that one moderator and heavy contributor and supporter of this topic will that (2) your replies will be deleted. Not all of us support this kind of traffic and were relieved to see it go away and dismayed when it came back. And ignore ignores PEOPLE not TOPICS. Sometime a new Shelby web site will happen and this traffic won't be there. It is already not allowed in the facebook Shelby section, and facebook is built around this kind of nonsense. How about we keep the topic on subject and the forum on the topic of the vendor. If you want to say hello to each other, be a post whore to increase your post count, go somewhere where that kind of traffic is supported, or start your own forum. And leave this place to the subject at hand. Let's see how long this lasts.

    Well, we had such a great time last year. If your so inclined, start at the track on August 13th and 14th moving to Dearborn. We will be visiting at least one of the largest Ford collections in the world. On Friday, we will board a private train and where someone will meet their demise and, its up to us to find the culprit (after Dinner of course) Saturday its private parking at Woodward with Shelby America and a few other notable folks. More details will follow but make sure you save the dates cause its going to be a blast August 13th, 14th track days August 15th, through the 23rd in Dearborn Stay tunned

    Why not use what the owner's manual recommends? With all the stories about oil consumption on the 350s I'd stay with Ford products.
