  1. $90k+++. Seriously. If they would use the 300a or 301a, thats $66-67k. That’s doable, not $90k even with the $10k discount. Meh.
  2. No your 100% in touch. If you owned Shelby Inc. You’d say “why do a ton of volume when you can make the same amount of money that you can do with half the volume”. They have priced the Shelby blue collar buyer out of the picture, which was well over 70% of their sales The other issue is these dealers are making the SGT’s with 401a packages and all the track packs, which just puts these cars in a ridiculous price range.(by the way the track packages are only to be used with the staggered 19 inch wheels and tires which is totally obsoleted when you put the Shelby GT kit on it with 20” wheels and tires) If they would’ve just built them with 301a packages which gives you the big touchscreen the MSRP would’ve been around $68-69k with a dealer discount package and rebates would’ve brought you in around $66k instead of $85+k. Which means whoever buys those cars “will be buried with it” unless they keep it and pay it off or they’re going to take a $30k++ beating when they sell. Its just not worth it. of course my opinion and a dollar will buy you a cuppa coffee at McDonald’s.
  3. That car is bad to the bone. 100% beautiful, excellent Shelby work.
  4. You’re right this car was ordered with big ticket ford options that I will never use. I want a GT premium, and can get one for $35k ($41k MSRP) and its pretty well loaded with what I want. We’ll see what happens. I’m in the market for a new car since selling mine and want the new technology that is offered in today’s cars. I did find a killer supersnake used private party for under $50k but some medical issues have me looking at an automatic now. We’ll see what happens. Stay in touch.
  5. 2019 SGTH: I've tried for about 2 months to buy a 2019 GTH to no avail. These cars are marked up so it is ridiculously expensive and imo not worth it. They take a 401a package GT Mustang and put some half shafts and coolant tanks on it for $95k without a supercharger. I offered $68k ($38k for the GT Mustang and $30995 retail price for the GTH package and they acted like I was trying to steal it). I think it is a nice looking car but for that type of coin you are now into Porsche territory. It is obvious these cars are not for Shelby enthusiasts any longer.... it is just about the Benjamin's.
  6. Bill you are so right, the original dated 2007-08 interiors are no longer made. Any new interior upgrades have the incorrect snake and GT/SC lettering colors etc... That interior you have including the stripe matching & original 618 silver leather incl console cover, complete interior and 1/2 hide 618 silver leather for door panels will make your car new and exciting again. I am so glad you got it. Please post pictures when done.
  7. Dave, It was a pleasure dealing with you and I now know the awesome Paxton GTSC is in good hands. Yes it was a hard to make sale for me but since I never drove it, it was the right right decision.Again thank you and I know you'll love it. I already miss this incredible car. Take care and keep in touch. Dave
  8. Ok if I could get one for $61k I’d be an owner. However that would never happen. The dealer in Seattle has a semi loaded GT Mustang with the GT-H package, with no SC, for the bargain price of $87k with a $2k discount. Seattle has a big time income base so they sell them, after a while. Shelby American is pure business and why make a SGT or GTH car when they sell 20-1 Supersnake Trucks and make more bottom line. It is what it is.
  9. Your car looks awesome. You will love the GTSC, IMO they are the best Shelby for the coin. I’ve had both Whipple and Paxton incredible cars. Have fun.
  10. The C8 is alluring for sure but until all the bugs and ADM’s are worked out I’m on the side line. I can’t wait to see a new C8 in person. Off topic: Yes the Paxton is going to go to a new owner. I just don’t drive it much any more so let someone else enjoy it. Both the Whipple and Paxton cars are great cars my vote goes to Paxton. After driving both, now know why Carroll Shelby wanted all the GTSC’s to be Paxton, just an extremely well-balanced car.
  11. Mr Steve, Can we get some pictures of the new Shelby GT and GT-H please. Thank you in advance.
  12. Beautiful GT-H. I really like these however they are too rich for me. But if iyou have the coin it is one of the nicest new cars on the block. Great car and thank you for sharing! The car must be ultra fast with the automatic. Hold on tight for sure.
  13. Wow....very nice ride. Enjoy tearing up the roads!
  14. That is just awesome. Great story...... love the SIXT GT-S!
  15. Beautiful new C8....IMO of course. The only thing that doesn’t look exotic on the 2020 Vette is the taillights. They just had to keep some GM protocol in this build. Also at $60k - - this is value even if the z51 package is a few thousand more.
  16. Again....along with the beautiful power adds/upgrades the car is absolutely stunning! The "low miles" on the car will make for a very strong show piece. Special car for sure. Congratulations! EDITED:
  17. I concur with that assessment. These hot rod rentals will be driven hard with little to no repercussions.(Unless it is written into agreements as abuse breakage). I just cant see how they could rent these cars for that type of money, $162.97 to $283.16 and make any profit so I think this is for brand recognition mostly. In either case I'm looking forward to renting one! 100 Days at $283.16=$28,316. (this is only approximately half of what the car retails for. So take 100 hours of thrashing on these hot rods, the car will possibly need major repiar and is not even half paid for. (It has to be a branding situation as no money will be made here). EDITED:
  18. Beautiful job, congrats.Love the chrome razors!
  19. The new SiXT rentals come with a supercharger and the Hertz cars did not. They are much more powerful cars than the Hertz cars out of the gate. Now I do know that there were some Hertz that were SC'd that were done by the executives, but not rental ready cars from what I know. Correct me if I am wrong here. However......the Hertz cars are much nicer in appearance than the new SiXT rentals. IMO of course.
  20. It is a great business move by them. To bring back a real high performance rental car is a real wake up call for Shelby history. I mean the late model Hertz cars were nice but they weren’t really a super hipo car, it just had the look. I actually can’t wait to rent one when they are available! Good PR move by SiXT, they’ll surely get a lot of attention through many outlets of journalism in the automobile world. EDITED:
  21. Lol....yes I agree. But hey...if you have the coin buy it! Why let someone else spend what you rightfully earned and then they (son, daughter, nephew etc...) inherited it. So you should buy it and then drive it like you stole it. I’ve seen very close people to me that tried to save it for a rainy day i.e.: take it with them....that just doesn't happen.
  22. Enjoy the magic of a true Shelby American GTSC.
