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.

    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

    True. Media and historians started using the 64.5 designation to differentiate the differences in the "early 1965" (Ford designation) models with generators (instead of alternator), 260 V8, different hood and such. The 64.5 designation has been embedded incorrectly in discussion for over fifty years. Similar to the legendary incorrect reference to early references to hardtop Mustang as a coupe. A hardtop is a two door sedan with roll down rear quarter windows, the coupe, like the current series of Mustangs, is a two door with fixed rear quarter windows. I know...how picky!

    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.

    Chris don’t blame you for keeping her. They really are fun cars to drive. There will never be another one in my book. Those were amazing times when Carroll Shelby went back to ford. Full circle ⭕️ for sure. My only question is how can it be a hertz car if it's never been owned by hertz ? Rent a racer is a major theme and provenance that the hertz cars had.

    I have owned a 2007 Shelby GT and now own a 2016 GT-H. I have always admired the Hertz GT-H and always desired to own one someday. The black with the gold stripe was certainly appealing to me. When you seen one, you knew it was a very special Hertz mustang. It simply stood out from the rest in my opinion. I know that they apparently make a Super Snake that may be black with the gold stripe. Again, these are very rare and rarely seen, especially in the heartland where I live. Even the Hertz Shelby's are few and far between in my neck of the woods. I am extremely disappointed that Shelby/Ford has decided to make this new "GT-H" (Heritage). I think this is a disservice to all GT-H owners. Offering the same black/gold combination and labeling it as a GT-H is simply unprofessional and inappropriate in my opinion. Really, there were 25 other letters in the alphabet besides the letter H, and they couldn't be creative enough to come up with one? Let me be clear, I am not against creating the new Shelby GT, I am just opposed to the GT-H option and offering the black/gold paint/stripe scheme. I think that should be reserved for the true and limited GT-H (Hertz) mustangs. I know that a Hertz is a Hertz, however, I am certainly concerned that this will certainly have a negative effect on the value of our true GT-H mustangs.

    No way man! You’re justified feeling this way. I'll attempt to relate.... I grew up in an auto family. My dad did custom leather upholstery for high end cars from classic Rolls-Royce down through now classic Mercedes cars and everything in between. I was always surrounded with the coolest cars and had no idea how fortunate I was. Then he passed away when I was a teenager. My mom kept kids fed and housed, but we had squat. I worked as a mechanic for years. Fast forward 30 years. i married my HS sweetheart, we worked our asses off to buy a home and raise a son. Now 56, a data security engineer and finally some disposable income! I fell in love with the s550 GT350 and cherish it on the same level as those classic cars that I now appreciate like never before. Keep it clean and it gives back everything you put into it. I dote over my car like I did for my wife when I was 18 because, well, it’s special. I worked hard to get here and don’t much care what anyone else thinks of that. It’s a milestone in my life’s story and my teenage son is having those same experiences I had at his age in the world of cool sports cars. enjoy it, you deserve it.

    Well we agree on a few things I guess...giving out trophies or medals just for participating is dumb and attributes to what I was saying nowadays kids don't know how to lose...I agree if there is only one trophy to win like hockey football and such sports I get that but even they get first in their division....all I'm saying if you're involved in a sport that has Gold silver and bronze then just be proud of what you accomplished and not be labeled a loser for not getting gold....no one and I mean no one is more competitive than I am and to lose hurt but it makes one hungrier to train harder to comeback better than ever....at least that's what I did and it worked.

    I guess I might be in the minority, but I love the Recaros in my 17. Drove it 6 hours home after taking delivery and they never gave me any reason to bitch. I’m 56, 180#, 5’11”. I'm used to the restrained seating from the SCCA days of my 20’s and 30’s and when I sat my overweight ass in the Recaros for the first time it was like visiting an old friend. As far as the torque curve goes, it took me 100 miles to figure out where the VooDoo likes to live and the song it sings can be intimidating to those (my wife) not used to living in the middle of the tach. For me, it was like being returned to the days of my youth and I’m completely smitten with the driving experience I get every time I climb (that’s what it is) into the cockpit. I love normally aspirated, big-hp, short-stroke engines that can fool me into believing I’m not a geezer, even though I really am. I just ain’t done having fun yet. I won’t be selling my GT350 anytime soon.

    The GT350 is a unique vehicle with unique technology. We like it a lot. Agree with other posters, the over-heating problems 2016 tech package GT350's soured some owners. My family's 2016 GT350 properly has the track pack - our music comes out of the VooDoo FPC engine and quad tailpipes. We're - not into the non-engine electronics. I also believe the GT500 which is an entirely different vehicle, made to go up against the likes of the Demon and Corvette ZR1 is sapping media and consumer interest in the GT350 which has been amazingly high since 2015, but is now waning. The current GT350 nicely complements the heritage in our '67 GT350 with the non-supercharged HiPo 289. We're outliers - we like high-power normally aspirated engines. Not interested in superchargers or turbos. We didn't buy our GT350's as investments, we bought them for the pleasure of driving and owning. If the value goes up that's nice but we're not focused on selling, just enjoying. The muscle car occupies a niche that will grow more distant as electrical vehicles advance. We don't like the electrics and prefer our diesel trucks and such. We even find the technology in the unique Subaru boxer engines. They are interesting engines but designers say it won't pass future emissions standards so will be retired - how sad. The GT350's Voodoo engine is likely the last of the high-power NA engines. What an engine the Voodoo is. Love it and respect it for what it is. Bolting on a supercharger or turbo.

    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....")
