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!

  1. I now own #38 CSX-VNT any info?

    Yes you are correct. The stock tires were 195/60/15 Goodyear GT+4 with an optional 225/50/15 Gatorback. You can also look in the drivers door jamb of your car for the Federal tire decal that shows the original size and load limits. Please ignore my previous tire size post, that size was for the earlier cars. I'll revise my previous posts so that no one is confused. Steve
  2. I now own #38 CSX-VNT any info?

    On second thought you are probably correct. The stock tires were smaller and I believe were GT+4 tires. Let me check into this and get back to you. Steve
  3. Horsepower of 2008 Shelby Mustang GTSC

    Good advice there. While I'm sure there have been some rare cases of a engine grenading on the oem s/c tune, most likely due to the engine already having issues, its extremely rare to have issues on the oem s/c tune. Steve
  4. 16’ Hertz Badges

    I'm not sure who you haven't had any luck with but if you phone the Shelby American parts department asking to purchase restricted parts, the Hertz badging is a restricted part, they will ask you for proof of ownership. This proof can be in the form of a State issued Vehicle Title or a State issued Vehicle registration. In some instances they can also accept a bill of sale but only if its say a bill of sale from Hertz Car sales to you or something comparable. Private owner bill of sales would not be an acceptable proof of ownership. The direct phone number for the Shelby American Parts department is 702-405-3500 Steve
  5. Super Snake Super Charger

    Yes its a safe upgrade if installed correctly and using the s/c manufacturers tune. Upgraded cooling is always nice and should be mandatory if the car is tracked. If the car is driven on the streets in a normal fashion then you can get by without the extra cooling but if driven aggressively on a 90-100 degree day you may want to keep an eye on the temp gauge. And it goes without saying that the highest octane fuel should be used and maintenance should be kept up on. Steve
  6. I now own #38 CSX-VNT any info?

    195/60/15 Goodyear GT+4 would have been the original tires. According to the Shelby American Registry car #38 was a unsold leftover unit purchased back by Chrysler when Shelby Automobiles closed their doors in early 1990. It appears that Chrysler then shipped car #38 to Northern California to be sold. If the car has spent its entire life in California perhaps the DMV can give you some history on the car but keep in mind that even if they do the info will not contain any owners names. You may also want to try running a CarFax report but I've noticed that many CarFax reports no longer contain a full history. Best suggestion is to locate magazine articles from back in the day when these cars were new in the showroom. Purchase sales brochures & manuals from say eBay and make contact with other 1989 CSX owners. There are a few facebook pages and websites dedicated to the trurbo mopar cars from the 1980's. Steve
  7. 2016 GTH Owners Packet available from Hertz

    All you need to do is reach out to Shelby American's parts department. Steve
  8. For anyone who has purchased a 2016 Shelby GTH ex-rental car the Hertz Corporation has available a paperwork packet upon providing proof of ownership. I believe these paperwork packets will be similar to the 2006-07 packets that should contain items such as the original Ford Mustang Monroney label and copies of the MSO and Ford/Shelby invoices. Drop me an email at stevent@shelby.com and I'll reply with the Hertz contact info on how to claim your owners packet from them. Steve
  9. 16’ Hertz Badges

    If you are the owner of a 2016 GTH all you need to do is reach out to Shelby American's parts department. If you are not an GTH owner then there's not much you can do as it would be illegal to have any items produced using Hertz or Shelby trademarks. Steve
  10. B-J R package/tune lmao

    Overall this GT350 did pretty well at the auction when you consider right after this car a 2017 GT350 with less miles was only able to pull in $53k A 2011 Roush w/576hp only brought $32k and that was with B-J giving the car extra time on the stage. So buyers are willing to pay more for a Shelby American built GT350 Steve
  11. B-J R package/tune lmao

    Below is from the auction description: This Shelby has 8,671 actual miles and is one of 159 built in 2011, and one of 80 built with the R package.
  12. B-J R package/tune lmao

    What I chuckled at even more was when the TV announcer said the GT350 retailed for $42k when new. Maybe the base Mustang retailed for $42k but no 2011 GT350's were $42k I also found the promotional banner on the windshield interesting where it claimed the car was 1 of 80 with a certain option. Not sure what they meant by that or where they got that number from. At least they got the total build number of 159 correct. Steve
  13. As others have already mentioned if the dealership follows the correct recall procedure only the inflator canisters will be replaced which will leave the original covers in place. Unfortunately some dealerships have not followed the correct recall procedures and have ordered a complete airbag assembly through their parts department which results in both the inflator canister and cover being replaced. Best suggestion I have for owners is when speaking with the service writer make sure the service writer understands the correct replacement process and perhaps even have them make a note on the service ticket that inflator canister only is to be replaced. One other suggestion is to pick your car up as soon as possible so that if there is a problem the dealership will not have time to have "lost" your original airbag cover. Steve
  14. Need window stickers for SCCA classing

    The GT/SC upgrade package was not a factory option so it will not appear on any Monroney labels (aka window sticker). I don't believe SCCA would ever consider the SC a factory option, unless someone tricks them into believing that and trust me there would be lots of people who would then set SCCA straight. Steve
  15. 2019 Shelby Bash dates are March 14th to 17th 2019 Ticket sales & host hotel will be announced at a later date.
  16. Carroll Shelby Racing

    I did say my retinas were damaged
  17. 2020 GT500 news

    Perhaps Ford was paying tribute to the Mustang II Cobra
  18. Carroll Shelby Racing

    Holy smokes Batman, I think my retinas have been damaged trying to read that I tried removing the red highlighting in the OP's post but wasn't able to. Steve
  19. 2007 Shelby GT/SC smog issue

    Dylan, SCT Tuner's are married to the car so the question is did Galpin upload a new tune to your car or was someone just trying to use a tuner they had laying around to do something else. At this point in time its probably best to start from scratch, meaning getting the correct original FRPP/Kenne Bell tune uploaded to your car. Do you know if this SCT tuner is the newer type that uses SD memory cards? Steve
  20. ISO 2007 Shelby GT rear shock NEED HELP!

    Summit claims to have in stock the front struts & rear shocks for a decent price. Remember front struts usually last 1/2 as long as rear shocks so it might not be a bad idea to grab these while you can.
  21. Time Capsule Shelby

    According to Ford build records this SGT did have the interior upgrade package which should have included the message center buttons. Strange that those buttons are not there. Steve
  22. Lost keys - need help

    Below is what the key code tag looks like, unfortunately this photo shows the back of the tag but at least you can see what the tag looks like. I don't see the Jeep dealer being much of a help as all they are changing is the physical locks and most likely wont be able to assist you with the programming. Best to go to the Ford dealer so that they may look your key code up by the VIN number, cut you some replacement keys and then program them to the car. Personally I would not want any dealership tearing apart my steering column, drivers door and trunk panel so that they can physically change the locks. It would be extremely rare for them not to scratch something or to leave something loose that will rattle when the car is being driven. Best of luck. Steve
  23. How did you decide on GT500

    Pete, If you think there are really good deals on GT500's right now, just wait until later this year when the new GT500 is on the dealers lot. Just a fact of life, when newer models are released the previous models take a price hit. If you want the best of both worlds, pick up a SGT and have SAI supercharge it for you. This way you have the power of a GT500 and the handling of a SGT. Steve
  24. 2007 Shelby GT/SC smog issue

    Dylan, Could you explain in more detail what you mean by Ford gave you an SCT tuner. Do you mean a Ford dealership or Ford Racing? And if so why would they give you a tuner tool for a S/C they did not install? Steve
  25. Dakota Shelby Air Filter

    Greg, Nice website you got going there. One item you may want to add to the how to identify a Shelby Dakota section is that the 8th digit of the VIN number will denote the truck as a Shelby because of the digit being the letter 'Y' which decodes as a 5.2 V8 engine. The Shelby Dakota was the only Dakota that year to have a 'Y' digit in its VIN as it was the only Dakota with a V8 engine. Steve
