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. Shelby Headquaters Dissapointment

    I stopped by the museum yesterday (Saturday) while in Las Vegas. I missed the tour, which is only given at 10:30 on Saturdays. I’ve been multiple times in the past, but thoroughly enjoyed looking at the cars in the museum. There was a good crowd and they all seemed to be enjoying the cars and gift shop. I also noted there there was nothing in the gift shop relating specifically to the Shelby GT. They do have a great selection of Shelby related items in general. I plan to return again, the next time with my 2008 Shelby GT. The museum is a definite must see if you are in Las Vegas. Kevin
  2. Hello Shelby fans: Several weeks ago, I posted about looking at a 2008 SGT. Well....the car is now in my garage. It's a 2 owner car with 16,000 miles. I absolutely love it. It is basically stock, with a few appearance updates. The car last resided in northern Utah and it's in excellent shape. I plan to drive it occasionally, as well as take it to local shows etc. Since I'm less than 100 miles from Las Vegas, I plan to take it to the Shelby facility for a visit / tour of the museum. Thanks to those that responded to my initial inquiries. The prior owner had the car for 7+ years and he did not have any paperwork from the original owner. The two previous owners did have the car in the registry, and I have now added my info to the registry. It would be great to connect with the original owner. I'll attached a few pictures. Kevin
  3. Average insurance price

    I called them at 800-922-4050. My quote was for 500 deductibles on comp / collision.
  4. Average insurance price

    I just got a quote today from Hagerty for a 2008 SGT I’m looking to buy. They had a package with 5000 miles per year. Coverage limits are 100/300/100. I can’t drive it to work daily (not an issue....I work from home). I can use it for pleasure driving and use it around town....just not daily driver use. Agreed value at $25,000. Price was quoted at 640.00 per year. State Farm quoted me $940.00 per year for same coverage, no useage restrictions, but no agreed value. Kevin
  5. Looking to buy 2008 SGT

    I did not realize the SGT did not come with a spare. Was that due to an issue with brakes, or was it to save weight? The car I’m looking at has floor mats with a “Shelby” plate attach to the area closest to the door. Kevin
  6. Looking to buy 2008 SGT

    Thanks mhr1961. I’ll have to check on the plug issue. At what time or mileage are the usually changed? Good idea on the lower grill. I have a 2009 GT/CS and it has the lower grill insert. As far as spare tires, did these cars come with a “space saver” spare like my GT/CS? The car I looked at today had a full sized tire, mounted on a polished wheel laid in the trunk. I did not look into the spare tire well to see if it had a space saver spare. The car has its owner manuals, but no Shelby documentation. The car is at a dealership so I am not dealing with the owner. Hopefully if I put this deal together, I will be able to contact the prior owner, but for now, I have to assume there is no additional documentation. Thanks for the heads up on contacting Shelby for any info they may have. Thanks to those who have provided me some valuable info on the Shelby GTs.i visited Shelby in Las Vegas when the 2007 and 2008 models were being modified. I rented two 2006 Hertz cars when they were in rental service in Las Vegas. Today was the first time I drove a Shelby GT and I was very impressed. Thanks again. Kevin
  7. Looking to buy 2008 SGT

    Thanks Clark: I did check the tires and they have been recently replaced. Manufacture date of the tires we all 2018. I'll post the results of what happens with this car. Kevin
  8. Hello members I’m been reading this forum for years. I’m finally getting close to purchasing a Shelby GT. I looked at a 2008 SGT today. It is a coupe with 16,000 miles. It has had 2 owners and a has a clean car fax. The last owner had it for 8 years. It’s obviously been garage kept, as the stripes are perfect. The hood scoop looks good also. It’s a 5 speed, has IUP, HID headlights, Sirius, and ambient lighting. Is there anything I need to look at in addition to the stripes and scoop. I can buy the car for a little under 20,000. I would use it as a second car and would take it to car shows. I will garage keep it. Any comments or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks kevin
  9. Shelby GT Salvage Value

    I have worked in the retail automotive business for 45 years. We normally value a salvage title vehicle at 50 percent of a clean title car when appraising it for trade. We never retail a salvage title car. They are always wholesaled . Kevin
  10. New to me 2007 Shelby GT

    Thanks Jeff, I appreciate the info. I was not aware of this package. Kevin
  11. New to me 2007 Shelby GT

    I've loved the Shelby GTs, ever since I visited Shelby while these cars were being produced. Your car is a great example of what they built. My question is what is included the "California" package? Were these a regional promotion? I currently own a 2009 Mustang GT/CS Thanks for the info. Kevin
  12. Booked Vegas for May 3 to May 7

    I also agree on getting a rental car. Be sure to see "The Collection" at Imperial Palace on the strip. It's a display of 200+/- antiques, classics and muscle cars. There are usually "free admission" coupons in the magazines that will be in your room at the MGM. If not, it's still reasonable to get in. Tours at Shelby were Monday - Friday at 10:30 am. Better check for curent schedule. Have fun! Kevin
  13. Matt: Welcome to Florida. As you can tell, summer time is NOT car show time! Most of our larger shows are in the spring and fall. In early January, there is a large Mustang show (1000+ cars) held at Silver Springs in Ocala. This is a non judged event and is sponsored by National Parts Depot. The first 1000 cars get free registration and admittance to the park. It is a two day event, if you desire to stay. Spring shows include the show at Fantasy of Flight, hosted by the Imperial Mustang Club. Ths show draws 300+ cars. Website is www.imperialmustangclub.org. You also get two free admissions to the museum. Also in the spring, the Mid-Florida Mustang Clus holds a large show in Orlando. Another spring show is hosted by the Suncoast Mustang Club in Pinellas County. (Clearwater / St. Pete) In the fall, The Mustang Club of Tampa holds a show at the Museum of Science on Industry. The show is on October 25 this year. All registered vehicles also receive 2 free tickets to the museum. Get info and registration info at www.mustangcluboftampa.com. This show gets 225+ cars each year. 2008 is the 27th annual show we have hosted. In November, the Mustang Club of West Central Florida (Bradenton) hosts a show. I understand this show will be at a new location this year. Also in October (18th) there is a large show in Lakeland opened to all makes and models. The Imperial Mustang Club and the Mustang Club of Tampa are going to host a "Show within a Show" at this event. All Mustangs will be grouped together. This show draws 400+ cars in total. Website is www.lakemirrorclassic.com. I am a member of the Mustang Club of Tampa. I usually attend most / all of the above shows each year. Stop by and say "HI". I have a white '66 concourse restored coupe. Kevin
