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 2019, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more!

  1. Why not use the Myraid font? Always bothered me that SD didn’t use the font on the car’s side stripe. Didn’t look OEM. You can correct that mistake.
  2. What is the value of my 2007 Shelby GT

    Like I said above...negotiate a price for the car then pull out the airbag and see if the buyer bites. Good luck.
  3. Things to look out for

    Ticking sounds have ALWAYS been an issue with the engine. Both my 2005 GT and my SGT did it. I thought there was a TSB but seems not. Do a search for ticking. As for storage I’ve never done anything special. Fill up with good gas. Get a trickle charger. Start car every week to move tires around. Should be fine! Good luck!
  4. What is the value of my 2007 Shelby GT

    Really nice car. As someone who has bought and sold, and bought, at the end of the day a car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. The modifications, typically, are pennies on the dollar. Just as many people won’t appreciate them as those that do. Consider them a selling point should the buyer be considering a like car. But they aren’t going to move someone to buy and may stop some like myself. My first thought would he how to undo some of these to get it back to stock if I were buying. The configuration stuff is nice to know but again these cars aren’t old enough or valuable enough for it to be a motivation to buy. Lastly it’s unfortunate the CSM number is on the airbag cover. It’s likely you could get more for it on the open market than with the car if it were just the signature. I would again consider it a buyer incentive. I would keep it or try to sell to buyer separately. Do you have the old cover? You’ve taken great care of the car, no doubt, so keep a watch for what others are selling for and price accordingly. Knowing that at the end of the day none of what you said above is going to get most buyers to pay more, where some wouldn’t buy at all, it sucks. It’s your baby configured just the way you want. Finding someone that agrees with your vision with the same passion converted to cash is VERY hard to find. IMHO! Good luck!
  5. 2007 Sheby GT factory sales literature

    I made this.
  6. 2007 Sheby GT factory sales literature

    I and other members created these cards 10 or so years ago. All of these items, and more, are in the pinned thread. No need to repost them here.
  7. The Stripes Thread

    I would ask this question in the Regional forum area you might have better luck.
  8. Wanted - Shelby GT Headrests

    That’s an incorrect snake. That’s depressing.
  9. Just keep in mind that the the steering wheel is tested and approved to breakaway a specific way do not to injure the driver. A metallic disk stuck on isn’t and can cause serious injury so know what you’re potentially getting into. The liability issues were why, unlike Steeda and Saleen, Shelby decided not to sell these. This is what I bought: http://www.cobranda.com/19shwhcapde.html
  10. That’s the one! On the steering wheel, because flying metal isn’t a good idea when the airbag deploys, I used the 1969 S Snake wheel cap sticker that is metallic, easy to apply, and won’t take your eye out. Posted here with link to buy somewhere.
  11. Painted Stripes Recommendation

    Be aware removing the stripes can be a royal PITA! Lots of stories, good, bad, techniques tried, failed, success, in the stripe thread. Can’t emphasize enough the value for the time spent reviewing that thread. You will see it can take hours and hours to remove, the thin early 07 stripes are the worse and break into little pieces. Add to this the potential liability scratching the paint and you get these high prices unfortunately. Many just removed as much as they could themselves and had shop finish the job.
  12. The one you really want is the "S" snake or "Berg" Shelby GT emblem that was available at one time, all were stick on.
  13. vinyl stripes

    Agreed! If you don't have a garage, or intend to drive in the rain, and don't want to wipe the car down every time you pull into the garage, paint them on!
  14. I don't know of any difference, screw material wise, between the 07 and 08. I'd have to look back and search the threads but if there is any concern I would order a set of AI screws. Years ago we all went in and bought a few hundred and passed them out....cheap insurance.
  15. Hood Pin Thread

    I would bu the AI screws if there is any doubt. You can get the right size on-line, a bunch of us did years ago, and they cost pennies. Cheap insurance. I would replace the hood if you are going to REALLY keep the car. All it takes is a few left over particles to hav e it start all over again. Remember Ford's extended warranty for hood corrosion WAS NOT due to or for the Shelby screws. While these screws do cause corrosion the extended warranty was for factory hood contamination by airborne particles prior to prime and paint.
