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!

  1. New 2019 Shelby GT Purchase

    Yep, you just stated why this forum doesn't get much SAI marketing info any more... No money or buyers to be found here.
  2. New 2019 Shelby GT Purchase

    There are two things operating here. 1. This forum is no longer representative of the Shelby American target demographic. Not that it ever really was, which leads to.. 2. The buyers of the latest generation of Shelby cars are not Forum people, and aren't probably even Facebook people.

    You will have much better luck selling the Cobras and GT40 at www.cobracountry.com. This place is primarily focused on modern era Mustangs.
  4. New Ford GT production expanded to 1350

    Expanded from 1000 to 1350 with two more years. It's open enrollment time for Medicare, Obamacare and Ford GT! The application process will re-open on Nov 8. https://media.ford.com/content/fordmedia/fna/us/en/news/2018/10/18/ford-increasing-gt-production.html#
  5. GT500KR Convertible (2008-2009) Do they really exist ?

    Shelby American was just an extension to the manufacturing process (note 1). Ford determined build numbers. Note 1: Since the KR was COMPLETED by Shelby American, the cars count as one of the two models of pre-title Ford/Shelby vehicles, the Shelby GT being the other.
  6. Auto carrier question

    So this is really advice on using a reputable nationwide carrier instead of some random guy with a pickup and trailer hooked up by a jobber. Stay with recognized carriers like Intercity and Reliable and you won't regret it. Unfortunately with the blooming of auctions the best carriers are now catering to them, so you need to plan ahead and be flexible. I got my Ford GT from Colorado to Vegas on a week's notice with Reliable by hitching a ride with some super-secret vehicles that I was not allowed to be near as they were unloaded. (Turned out they were Hellcats moving from high altitude testing in Colorado to desert driving in Vegas.)
  7. Goodyear eagles.

    Maybe if you have the space to store them, but the chances of keeping these original tires and wheels having any influence on the value of a KR that has been driven are practically nil. Maybe in 50 years, but then the value will be for cars that are still wrapped in plastic. Like I said, if it's got miles on it just put new tires on it, drive and enjoy it.
  8. Goodyear eagles.

    The NOS tires won't fix that as they are just as old and the same hockey pucks when cold. There are many topics here about replacements (and the best in class changes as the manufacturers come up with better solutions.) I think the latest recommendations were the Michelins. The tires were basically the same family as on the Ford GT and we use Bridgestone Potenzas and they are a superb tire but I don't think they are available in Mustang sizes.
  9. Goodyear eagles.

    Verify the date codes. Nothing more than about 1 year old. But if you're going to leave (the probably dated) original tires and just store these, then you're just adding to the age of already dated tires. Don't build a stock of disposables. The car is already "out of the wrapper" so will not increase in value from storage. Just drive it.
  10. Barrett Jackson SGT stripe color code

    It's all here. Try Search.
  11. Barrett Jackson SGT stripe color code

    Sorry, don't know the code, but it is supposedly the Barrett Jackson color.
  12. Series 1 parts

    Your best bet will be to contact Shelby American directly. Another contact might be Steve Becker.
  13. Auto carrier question

    You don't say if you are looking for a covered trailer. If so I've used Reliable and Intercity. Both are excellent. Charges for enclosed carriers will be about $1/mile. PS There are lots of topics on this subject.
  14. H20 GT500 Crash - Ocean City MD

    Stomped on the accelerator to accelerate with cold tires and pavement, or more likely, downshifted to accelerate without a throttle blip to match RPM and got a engine compression braking. Driver failed to have control.
  15. H20 GT500 Crash - Ocean City MD

    Rear end broke loose and he lost control. Going too fast.
