  1. YIKES..... sorry I missed the original thread. Can my post be moved to the original posting? Kevin
  2. I went to the Barrett Jackson auction in Las Vegas on Saturday. As usual, there were some high prices on some of the top line cars. A new Ford GT sold for 1,400,000.00. There were several 2005 - 2006 Ford GTs that sold for 280,000.00 to 295,000.00. A beautiful 1957 Bel Air convertible sold at 155,000.00. I saw a 2007 Shelby GT (white) with 180 miles on it sell for 28,000.00. This car still had the window stickers in place and plastic on the seats. In the sold car area, there was a 2008 Shelby GT convertible (Barrett Jackson Edition) with 156 miles on it that had sold for 29,000.00. All of the above referenced prices were before the 10 percent buyers premium. I would have guessed a little better pricing on the “new” Shelby GTs, but both were both cars sold for close to the same money, so I guess that was market price at this sale. Im going to the Mecum sale in Las Vegas this coming weekend. It will be interesting to see if any Shelby GTs are offered there. Kevin
  3. Great combo with the 69. They look great together. Good luck with your SGT. I have a 2008 SGT and I love it. Kevin
  4. Welcome.... Please post some pics and additional info on your car. Kevin
  5. I bought my 2008 SGT a little over a year ago. It had 16,500 miles on it and it currently has 19,000 miles. About 1000 of these miles are from several trips to Shelby in Las Vegas. I love the way it drives. Mine is a 5 speed. As you know, the stripes can be an issue. You’ll know as soon as you see the car. I am fortunate in that my Shelby has been garaged from day one, and my stripes remain in great shape. Good luck in your search. Kevin
  6. I went to the Las Vegas C&C in May 2019 at the Shelby facility. One nice feature is that the museum was open at 7:00 am. I was highly disappointed at the turnout.....probably 12 - 15 total cars. Maybe I was there on a slow week, but I have not gone back. I may try it again sometime, but it’s an 80 mile drive one way for me. Anyone else been there recently? Kevin
  7. Glad it made it to Texas safely. That’s good turnaround from Vegas on Sunday. I enjoyed meeting / talking with you on Sunday. Enjoy your Shelby, and I hope to see you at a future event. Kevin
  8. As I said earlier, probably the nicest black paint I have seen. Len is lucky to have acquired it. Your pride of ownership is very evident! Kevin
  9. Hey BB... Sorry for the delayed response, but I wanted to let you know I was parked next to your “old” Shelby GT yesterday at the Bash Car car show. That car is absolutely beautiful! The paint was probably the best black paint I have ever seen on a car. It looked like it was a mile deep. (What was your secret to get the paint that nice ?) Rest assured the car is in good hands...I spent some time talking to the current owner, and he is a great guy that really loves the car. The package he purchased from Shelby was fabulous....from super charger to wheels to hood, it was spectacular. I just wanted to let you know that the car was beautiful. It looks better than a new one! Kevin 2008 Shelby GT
  10. Congratulations and welcome to the site. I purchased my 2008 SGT in June 2018. Mine is a 5 speed coupe. I love it. Good luck with your Shelby. Kevin
  11. The two named carriers in this thread are the ones I could not get scheduled with over several months lead time. It all depends on on their loads going in specific directions. My brother had used Reliable in the past, with great delivery times and perfect delivery. Kevin
  12. The big carriers are great, but your car will sit until they get a load going on your desired route. I moved from Florida to Nevada in May of this year. I contacted 2 of the large carriers several months prior to the move. One never returned my calls, even though I had an online quote from them. The second national carrier did contact me and we agreed on a rate to transport the car. This was in March 2018. They stated they would pick up the car after May 1. By the end of June, my car was still sitting in Florida. The contracted carrier finally agreed they had no idea when my car would be picked up, as they did not have a load coming from Florida to the west coast. At this point I contacted the original carrier that had failed to get back to me. They also told me that they did not have a load coming from Florida to the western US and said they would not even quote me a delivery date. I then contacted a private carrier I had followed on the Antique Automobile Club of America forum. He has a 2 car enclosed carrier. He happened to have a trip planned the same week to California. We agreed on price and he had the car to me within a week. The car arrived in perfect condition. The driver kept in contact with me along the way. His name is Jim and he hauls under the name Truly Vintage. His number is 260-804-6695. I would defiantly recommend him. Kevin
  13. I went to the Barrett Jackson auction in Las Vegas today. I noticed that a 2016 GTH had sold. It was run by Hertz Remarketing. It also had a decal on the windshield from a Mannheim Auction. I could not find the Mannheim location. The stripes on the front were damaged and the front splitter had rash on it. I could not see the GTH number. This car sold for 36,000.00 Kevin
  14. I went to the Barrett Jackson auction in Las Vegas today, 09-29-18. I noticed that 2 2006 cars had sold. Both appeared to be nice cars. 06GTH432 sold for 22,000.00. 06GTH371 had polished wheels and a signed air bag cover. It sold for 25,000.00 I don’t know any other info on these cars. Kevin
  15. Enjoy your time at Shelby. It’s definitely worth your time. I was was there last Saturday. I missed the tour, but the museum and gift shop were great. Have fun. Kevin
