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.

    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.

    Being in the financial industry, I always find it interesting when people complain about the market being down. Keep in mind, you're still way up from 2009 and even more so since the tail end of 2016. Put things into perspective rather than focusing on the noise.

    I visit the mother ship every time I am in Vegas. As an FYI, CSX 2000 is at Shelby. It was there for SEMA 2018 which is why I was in Vegas. She will be on site through the Shelby Bash 2019 so I read. (If I am wrong, please someone correct me.) They had a 2006 GT-H with a Shelby installed SC there in the Heritage Center. It was a company car that staff drove around. Most likely Carroll drove it at least once I would assume but who knows. It was cool to see it on display and bitter sweet to hear it finally sold. So yes, they are selling items/cars. That just means some enthusiast can now be the care taker. That said, I cannot be disappointed. It was nice to connect with Shelby's own Steve Thornton who took us behind the scenes for a short tour. To that end, go visit and enjoy. If they mention your production car, great if not, great you still own a Shelby. I hear many times at the center, I wish I could own one. Now plan your visit!

    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.

    Ford provided a fix for this fueling issue a long time ago. there is a revised fuel tank and vapor management valve that should rectify the re-fueling issues on 2005 to 2007 ALL Mustang's the tank part # is 8R3Z-9002-A and a revised fuel vapor canister valve part # is 7R3Z-9D653-D There is also Ford TSB 07-21-12 that addresses this issue.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Hmmmmm.......................... "So, while the Challenger is still trailing the Mustang in the 2018 annual sales race, it is doing considerably better than either of the competitors in the grand scheme of things – posting solid growth while the competition is way down." The Mustang sales might be down a bit BUT, it is STILL out selling the Challenger...........................The Challenger has been and still IS, playing Catch Up with the Mustang............................ so I guess you can say that, the MUSTANG is the Hottest Selling Muscle Car STILL......

    I just procured #125 from Don Miller at Vantage Sportscars in Orlando. I can't speak highly enough about this guy and the entire experience with him. He really knows the Hertz cars. He has sold more than 30 of them. He told me there has been a flurry of activity in the last two weeks. Hertz has only about 15 left and they are ALL on the West Coast. He still has two expensive cars that have not been rented and one extremely expensive executive car. I am pretty darned excited. Have not seen one in person....

    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.

    16H0035 Update. Been trying to unwind some of the patina left over from my car's rental life. I installed the Power Pack II, went to Shelby and ordered new front hood stripes and a new duplicate dash plaque (somebody lifted mine prior to me buying the car). Took my Shelby to a local car show today; I was surprised at how many people had no idea that Hertz recently had these in the rental fleet. It was fun to tell them that I had rented it just for the show...

    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.

    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.
