    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.

    He is the guy who would always post what he was eating that day..... The Lobby. I might have chosen The Pub, but The Lobby works. Out for a drive this AM with a friend..... quite the spectacle.

    Took mine out for a wonderful drive too in honor of Carroll. I think Carroll would be proud to see the success Shelby American has made in the years since his death. RIP Carroll I like to think that my Dad and Carroll are up there proud of us here who are carrying on their legacies. CSSHELBYKID

    This Thursday May 2nd Shelby American will be pulling the covers off the latest Shelby vehicle to come out of the Shelby American factory, a new model never seen before. The official unveil will take place at 1:00PM PST at Carroll Shelby International located in sunny Southern California. Shelby American will have this latest Shelby on display throughout the 7th Annual Carroll Shelby Tribute & Car Show two day event, also held at CSI HQ. I guarantee this vehicle will have you talking.

    The Marti reports for the older vehicles contain a lot more information than the new ones. The ones I know that have gotten one for the new cars, with expectations set by the reports for the older vehicles, have been disappointed, mostly because it's not very much info for quite a bit of money.

    Ok, I was able to get a image compressed enough to post. Thanks for the congrats! I put on my first mod today...Shelby’s KR billet brake fluid cap. I can only think the reason this was not on originally is due to the extreme corrosive nature of Dot3 and the risk of “aftermarket” cap was too in mass transit and on showroom floors, but that is pure speculation on my end. Next is tires. The originals are still on an petrified they are indeed. I’ll keep for date code reasons, but that’s it.

    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.

    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.

    Well……., originally instead of the challenger joke I was going to use a corvette joke……but everybody knows you can’t sleep comfortably in a corvette unless you take your AARP card and McDonalds Gift Cards out of your hip pocket……..

    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. Sales Results - USA - Camaro, Challenger, Mustang - 2018 Year Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Total Camaro 2,867 3,680 5,245 4,529 4,529 4,530 25,380 Challenger 3,405 6,093 8,150 5,892 7,005 6,822 37,367 Mustang 4,732 5,800 8,632 7,125 8,739 7,400 42,428 When your sales numbers are higher than your competitors it means you are outselling them.........

    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.

    My wife had it framed in a shadow box for me. They wanted to drill holes in it to mount it and she wisely refused - God I love that woman! It hangs in our study right above my computer so I see it everyday.

    I don't think anyone hates the new GT500. Just making suggestions based upon what they would like to see on the car. One thing I would like to see moving forward is for everyone to stop using the phrase "real car guy". That is getting very old very quickly...…

    I might be all in on trashing Harley's..... After riding just about every type of bike out there the Harley Davidson is the only bike manufacturer that makes me feel like I could crash at any moment. Too big, too heavy, poor brakes, poor turning capabilities. But what do I know... Goose - I doubt anyone here is attacking/trashing you personally. Just because people may have a few opinions about the Vette that are not positive in nature does not reflect on you because you own one. Personally, I would never own one because I don't like anything GM makes, but I do respect the Corvette's racing pedigree.

    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!

    My Boss 302 LS seems to get all the love these days but I did also take the 40th to the SAAC 43 Nationals. Won a Show Favorite at the car show. Drove the 40th back up to central WA afterward. Good road trip. This subforum was getting stale so thought I would add a post.

    Ford is going to be a bit quiet on the GT500 for now because they just released to the public the Bullitt. Those have been hitting dealer lots recently and Ford is not going to steal thunder away from the Bullitts until they are almost all sold off. It would be stupid marketing to do otherwise. Ford really has been brilliant in their marketing of the Mustang the past decade and it shows in sales. My guess is that it will probably be another 2 months before you start seeing significantly more news about the 2020 GT500. You may see a spy shot here or there but the real marketing won’t start until they have sold about 75 to 80% of the Bullitt Edition.

    Back in Detroit in 1965..... It was always cool waiting for the new models to hit the dealer lots. Yeah it seems like yesterday I would walk on the Pontiac lot and look at all those 65 GTO’s sitting there. Get inside and shift the hurst shifter pretending it was mine. Go onto the next one and the next one. Then go over to the olds dealership and do it all over again. It’s strange but I don’t remember any 65 Shelby’s at any of the ford dealerships. The mustang for 65 wasn’t even on our radar at the time.....It was GM and Mopar mostly that ruled the Woodward ave crowd. Ford did drag race the mustang out in California with Mel burns . But a 289 hipo just didn’t get it done on the street back then. 1969 changed all of that and Ford was back in the game. Now I was looking at the ford car lots and ended up buying a slightly used 1970 mach1. Fond memories for sure and I’ve been hooked all these years mostly with Ford. Thanks Mongoose for sharing those old pictures. When was the last time you saw a car salesperson where a tie ?

    Cool pics Goose!!….. …...Wouldn't it be nice if one could go back in time just to walk on that lot and look at all the new Shelby's and pick the colour you want.

    Very little chrome on that cool ass bike. Be careful out there ....with all the careless drivers with their hand held cell phones glued to their heads. Drives me nuts. Light turns green ...but wait the driver ahead is texting about a very important useless thought in their head.. I need professional help sorry.
