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! Ownership of a Shelby is not required to be a member. The club is dedicated to serving all Shelby enthusiasts past and present including those that own cars built in the 1960's and Shelby Dodges too!

  1. WTB: 2007 Shelby GT (white) and 2007 Shelby GT-H

    These used to be in the Shelby store in Vegas. Have you called them? I saw the prototypes for these on one of my visits when Bud was doing the buying/ordering for the models.
  2. For you 2008 Shelby GT Owners

    Indeed it was NHTSA regs that capped the production to just 249 vehicles. 250+ and many more regs apply.
  3. Nope, can't drive it. Too many blind spots for aging eyes.
  4. Time for new topic yet?

    There are some. Start here There are lots of replies and very little new info As will the case until Ford announces it for real.
  5. 2016 GT-H Owners (CSM's and Photos)

    They will do OK. It all depends on how much you paid for it. If you bought it low, they will hold their own, maybe slightly appreciate over 10 years. The return will almost certainly be less than if you had invested the purchase price in the market. It is practically guaranteed that it will not be a replacement for a well funded 401k. In other words, it's not going to make you rich. So drive it!
  6. Die-Cast collections

    I only have a few, a GT and a couple of Mustangs including a 66 GT350H. I know the toy guy from Pawn Stars will disagree. To me the die casts are the same as a garage queen: Drive it or display it!!!! Put that still in wrappers car in a storage locker or the still in the box die cast in the closet. Get them out where you can see them. PS That doesn't mean I don't keep the boxes
  7. My best friend in college (and my best man at our wedding 43 years ago last week) had a Bug. We rebuilt his engine in about 4 hours one afternoon in Dr. Green's physics shop. Bill passed away from colon cancer is the reason we are so pro-screening. His lesson saved my wife's life.
  8. Replace brake pads and fluid for track days?

    I say this from experience. At Bondurant they watch the brakes and give you feedback on your use. On the 4 day class noone needed changes. On my advanced class I got 1 day (out of a car that had 1 day before me) before they changed the pads. As you get more experience you brake later and harder.
  9. Replace brake pads and fluid for track days?

    After. Chances are your pads, rotors and fluids are fine if all you've done is daily driving. Then you get to drive on new ones until the next track day. And if you've never tracked before, chances are you'll be fine even after. Try hard as you might you're probably not going to wear a set out on your first track day.
  10. Average insurance price

    It would help if you posted your state and vehicle info.
  11. New 2006 Hertz In the House

    You haven't read my posts about my black BJ SGTs? Black paint is a job. It will become an obsession. First thing to remember is that you should NEVER use a California Duster. They just move grains of sand around, about 2000 grit sandpaper. Use spray detailer with a very well worn microfiber towel (one that has been washed "many times") to clear the dust off. You should start off with a prep. Wash the car with detergent to get the old wax off. Then clay bar. Then wax. I used Turtle Wax Ice paste - two coats. Then use the detailer to keep the dust down, and every two or three cleanings with the detailer wash and re-polish with the Ice liquid. This will keep the swirl marks down to a minimum, but every 2nd season send the car to a trained professional for a true polishing detail to get rid of the microscratches. Lather rinse repeat. The same method worked on my Cobra - British Racing Green is heavily "black" biased and suffered the same maintenance issues. PS. Ice products work well because the wax can be used on plastic parts - the black things like mirrors and front grills as well as the stripes. My red strips so treated had not faded when I had to have the front ones replaced because of the scoop buckling.
  12. New 2006 Hertz In the House

    Way cool. They are unique and instantly recognizeable.
  13. It's 4 per year. It doesn't say how many years. It is not a GT350R engine (Ford doesn't sell it without a GT350(R) wrapped around it), it is the Shelby Engine Company 427 (alloy block). It won't have cupholders. Note the announcement didn't list a price. It also doesn't say if it is street legal. All of these cars are for toy owners with deep pocket books.
  14. Gt350R for GT350 price

    I'd Rather Be Lucky Than Good
  15. 1967 Shelby GT 500 Fastback wanted!!

    Post in the SAAC forum. this is mostly new mustangs.
  16. Rebuilt Shelby GT

    Photobucket images are not visible due to third party hosting restrictions. Please embed (you may have to resize them) PS, if you can see them it is only because you are logged in to Photobucket.
  17. Floor mats slippage

    I've used these. https://www.amazon.com/GG-Bailey-14102G-Mat-Loc-Retention/dp/B01MU9N5MU/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1525800072&sr=8-7&keywords=floor+mat+clips They are pretty generic though and this is only to show what they look like not as an endorsement of this particular mfgr/seller.
  18. Sell or keep 2011 GT500

    As with all things technological whatever exists tomorrow will be better than what exists today. Automobiles are no different. Both are Shelbys so go for the GT350.
  19. Ha!!! Blame Canada !
  20. I'd recommend you post date codes on all tires. Then let people decide.
  21. Colorado

    The groups/shows I went to were in Northern Colorado (Boulder/Longmont/Loveland/Ft. Collis/Greeley/Estes Park). The only one I can remember is the Northern Colorado Mustang Car Club. They do a show that used to be at the outlet mall in Loveland. Another one did the Horsefeathers show at Stapleton. http://www.ncmcc.org/ Maybe someone else can find a list, but the others are here, and you can search for them on your clock instead of mine Just look in this subforum at the titles for the show events for the past years. I posted links in the past. For the record, I don't find roofers and get background checks either
  22. Colorado

    The "Colorado Shelby Breakfast Club" is down in that area. Search for contact info here. Look in this subforum for my posts. I used to post lots of show info. Almost all of those shows still run. Remember the Shelby American Collection party. It will be 9/1/18 along with a drawing for the GT350R. Don't you mean why does Mid America schedule on the same weekend as the Rocky Mountain Roundup?
