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! He wanted to link all of the enthusiasts into one "dream garage"... thus, Team Shelby was born!   Team Shelby has many free, open access forums, news sections and member only areas dedicated to the community.   In addition, Team Shelby has a full series of events for 2018, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more!

    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.........

    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

    #125 is in 'da House! Just dropped off tonight. This car is badass. Can't wait to really drive it. Don at Vantage Sportscars provided the best car buying experience I've ever had. Complete attention to detail and customer service. Highly recommended.

    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. Hope you all have a fantastic time on your cruise. jill State Route 49 Vdubs Dubs Around the Lake 8

    Grabber, I am not blowing smoke up your skirt when I say that for years and years YOU felt like the face of Team Shelby. You were more relevant on here and cared more about all of our experiences, than any other single member, buddy! I know I speak for a lot of members....some gone forever, and many still here, when I say THANK YOU for all of your hours of hard work and input!!! It DID NOT GO UNNOTICED.....PERIOD! Grasshopper

    I finally made it to the Shelby store in Las Vegas. It's about a 4 hour drive for me. I pulled up in my 07 GT500 Saturday afternoon. There weren't many cars in the lot, and there were zero Shelbys. At first I thought they were closed, but then I saw a few people coming out of the store. I was lucky enough to nab an empty spot right up front. I walked in and was greeted by Joanna. She asked if it was my first time, and I said "Yes it is. I even brought my Shelby!" So she goes, "Did you see that circle out front? Do you know what that is?" I go, "the Circle of Power?" My wife goes, "No you dork, it's the Winners Circle." So then Joanna says, "You can park there." I made like the Roadrunner out the door, and backed my car up into the circle in about 3.5 seconds. It was pretty awesome! "The Circle of Power". I'm sticking with it.

    Just got off the phone with Ford Performance. They haven't finished the certificates yet but the final 2017 production numbers are in. GT350 - 6,173 GT350R - 942

    As long as the public decides to compare the Hertz Shelbys to newer technology they will obviously always suffer by comparison. Same goes for "beat on rental" stigma. Then again, so do the 1966 GT350H cars. Doesn't matter to me and the rest of the die hard enthusiasts that appreciate these cars for what they are/were when they were released. They are extremely limited historically significant cars. No more, no less. You either like them and want to pay for them, or you don't.

    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...

    Great stories gents. On the Recaros, I didn't like them at first either and seriously considered ordering one with the convenience pack, but the Recaros have conformed to my ample frame after a few drives, around 1,500 miles and they are actually quite comfortable on a long drive. Could use better lumbar support, but overall I'm thrilled with my 2017 in Ruby Red. I believe this version of the GT350 will be quite sought after in the years to come.

    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.

    Well folks it wasn’t easy dealing with Hertz here in Orlando but after a month of back and forth I was finally able to snag Shelby GTH #64 with 16k miles for $43,500. It did help that I had my GM from my dealership work the deal for the wholesale price. It’s off to service then a full detail before I head home with her. I was also able to contact Hertz via Steve to get all the documentation and accessories. Happy to be back in Shelby land!!!

    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?
