  1. That’s is crushing news, I’m so sorry to hear of such negligence. Here is the boom line, yes I’m going out in a limb here, tell me the last time you thought your veterinarian was extremely smart? Most are pure idiots. He would not have made it out of the room if it was my dog, he would have crawled out and hopefully the camera didn’t see me lay him flat out. Just a horrible story, my heart breaks for the family. Note: A new Us law was just enacted in the last month making animal cruelty a felony.
  2. Beautiful car, striking color combination I much prefer a colored car with chrome wheels or machine finish, than a straight up 3 way black. That black/black/black combo is played out and very yesterday.
  3. Welcome back. Thank you very much for your service. (My Dad flew 24 missions with the 392nd Bomb Group out of Wendling England and was the waist gunner on a B24. I have all his missions on paper and they are nerve racking to say the least. They were all over Nazi Germany and occupied France Then retired USAF SMS after 3 trips into Viet Nam in 1965).
  4. Very true and thought out statement. I live “mostly” by that motto.
  5. True. BUT.....be sure to always do your due diligence, as you can’t blame anyone but yourself if you get buried monetarily $$$ when the you (the buyer) is under self-induced ether of loud exhaust. LOL.
  6. Update: So I have been working with an excellent dealership who carries the Shelby brand. I want to recommend the Seattle Dealership for a thorough Shelby experience. Yes I know I usually don't have great things to say about dealerships in general, but I have been treated with exceptional care during my time looking at buying a 2019 Shelby GT. This dealership knows that we know a lot about the brand, the cars and they treated me as such. So there is only 1 dealership in Seattle who carries the brand and I have been treated well. Now whether I buy one or not remains to be seen, but if I were to 100% follow through, I would work with this dealer. Just an FYI.
  7. Thank you and enjoy that 2019 SGT, nice car for sure.
  8. Mhr1961, I have an Idea. You should continue to help out SA by buying a new SGT, your personal choice. You’ll get 0% interest on the loan, I believe for the car minus SA package. This will only give you a payment of $763 month for only 7 years with $20k down which you should get from the dealer on your trade in. Please post the new photos once you take delivery. Also this way you’ll be helping SA even more by backing your words and making the purchase. Good luck buying and keep us ALL informed of the progress.

  10. Lol. Please do post pictures of your car or post where we can see it. I am a fan and just because I don’t like the numbers $ doesn’t mean I don’t like the car. In fact I think it’s a fantastic car and I’m buying one if the numbers are right. One thing I am sure of is CS himself would have never allowed this, but as you said the “money” is bottom line in any business, I wholeheartedly agree. The BL here is they just alienated the existing Shelby built in customers, that is just short sighted. They also take banter/forum talk personally, I asked about a SC upgrade if I bought one, never answered. That’s just funny, it’s like I’ll make you pay for dissing my SGT, lol. The thing is I’ve always said the SGT was a quality build my issue was they left the entire existing Shelby GT customer behind. Rule number one or should I say business 101, always market to your existing customers. I’m looking at 3 right now, 2 on east coast and 1 on west coast, high $60’s in both areas.
  11. Realistically....it’s a $60k ++ car. They made huge mistakes when the brass wanted this car to compete with the revamped (not) 5.0 supersnake (yes I said mustang GT supersnake). They blew off the original SGT buyer and lost thousands of base SGT customers from the 2007 and up buyers but (from what I am told by dealers from east coast to west coast) the 2019 SGT’s were to be built on high dollar platforms, 401a with PP’s and loaded and a lot of the base Mustang GT prices were in the $50k range! to begin with.....huge mistake. One day they’ll realize just because they get bumped up to an executive level that doesn’t mean they have executive knowledge. I figure SA gave away $$millions in profit and multi-millions in gross sales because of this. But of course and as always, my opinion and $1 will buy you a cup of coffee at McDonald’s. Edited:
