  1. I saw this today: https://www.shelbystore.com/product-p/z79-coast19.htm?fbclid=IwAR3CO_Qp7aUYSwdjrVxx679Ex9xZS1AKy2Shss5Wq32j_a8auBhUyTA9Wms I hope they've arranged for reserved parking in Malibu. Paradise Cove charges a small fortune for parking, $30 IIRC, if you don't dine and get a validation. Sounds like a nice cruise up the coast.
  2. My 08SGT got rear ended in traffic, hit by a jerk going about 5 mph in an Nissan Sentra. He hit the box where the rear license plate is and scratched the stripe on the bumper, the bumper and even dented my (collectors item) Shelby GT license plate frame. And I should probably make his insurance buy me a new plate, and tags! I got one estimate and it looks like it includes a stripe replacement for the rear bumper - Part # 8R3Z6320000ME. But that googles up a stripe in Oxford White, not Satin Silver. There are others in Vista Blue, Ebony and other colors. Here's an example: https://parts.lakelandford.com/p/Ford__/Stripe-Tape-Order-through-dealer-kit-DECAL---Trim-Wire/53448480/8R3Z6320000ME.html And that appears to be $111 for just that one part of the kit. Anyone have the correct part # for Satin Silver? Is this it? https://parts.lakelandford.com/p/Ford__/Stripe-Tape-kit-DECAL--Trim--Order-through-dealer/54296495/7R3Z6320001MA.html I'm asking because the part # here is 7R3Z6320001MA. Why does it start with a 7? Is that because it's the same ones as used on the 2007 SGT? I was hoping to sell this car soon and wanted to leave it up the the next owner to decide whether to re-stripe or paint. The good news is that the silver stripe that is now torn was in great condition, so hopefully it won't look any worse than it did before it was hit. Thanks all!
  3. Yesterday's lot # 351.1 was a 2008 Shelby GT Barrett-Jackson Edition coupe, 5 speed manual, 08SGT2258, with Black Shelby Razor wheels and some exterior and interior mods, navigation/ satellite radio, stock looking engine. Unknown miles. Sold for $20,000 hammer price, $22,000 total.
  4. Kosher? Probably not, but since the snake emblems have become synonymous with Shelby (instead of what it used to mean= a Cobra) most I've met won't care.
  5. I finally tired of trying to clean and oil my old, original air filter so, after hours of online shopping, found an almost-exact replacement. None of the sights listed the exact dimensions and several showed just one photo of the wrong shaped filter, so I went with CJ Pony Parts: https://www.cjponyparts.com/M9601C/p/M9601C/?utm_source=Pony&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=OrderConfirmation&lac_guid=4c392c57-c049-e911-8170-0050568938fc It's not the original silver/grey that mine was back when I bought my 2008 new, but it's the exact correct size. It also makes my engine look so much better with that blue color.
  6. Will there be special room rates? Just checked and rates are higher that weekend.
  7. This is pretty much what I would have expected Galpin to do. Reminds me of when my brand new 2005 Mustang GT had to be taken in for a Check Engine light and it sat, untouched, for a month! You need to find an independent mechanic who knows the S197 Mustang and Shelby GTs. We all do... since really, no dealer knows how to work on our Shelbys!
  8. Good Eye. Any other SGT's that don't have that? It's strange, considering how well loaded that #588 is.
  9. Fit and finish is fine. Looks like it came from the factory this way. I forgot to check to see if these were the prototypes or regular, serialized Shelbys.
  10. I saw the 2 Heritage cars featured in the video today at the Shelby show in Gardena. Not too enthused about the GT-H designation, especially when they choose to have one of the cars done up in the same black with gold stripes used in most Hertz models since the 60's. What heritage are they referring to? But the side stripes do show a difference from the original Hertz models. Those didn't say SHELBY on the side, just G.T. 350H. But the most recent Hertz models DID incorporate the Shelby name on the side... Anyway, I like the looks of the white vert with gold rims. It didn't have upgraded rear disks, which made it look plain back there.
  11. I've been through several covers. I bought one of those cheap ones off eBay and massively regret that decision. While my car was covered for over a week (which is normal) it was being hit by the door of a truck that was parked next to it. My neighbor was illegally Air B&Bing his place. Apparently someone was slamming the passenger side door into my car and I never knew until I took the cover off! The truck's owner was gone, but the damage remained. 4 or 5 dimples and chips. I bought a tougher car cover from American Muscle, the TruFit Standard Fit Car Cover. It fits pretty well on my Vert and had the mirror pockets.Then I bought many feet of thick velcro and attached the soft half to the inside of the cover, right where my doors and fenders have been picking up door dings. All down both sides. The car's at the paintless dent removal place this week.
  12. My 2008's stripes didn't hold up very well. I used to have to park up on the roof level of a parking garage at work, exposing the car to sun and rain. I'm pretty sure that's what's caused the spots and what looks like rusting along the top edge of the trunk's stripes. The side stripes are in mint condition, as they rarely see any sun. If you plan on keeping your entire SGT stock go with the correct stripes for your year. Otherwise I'd suggest painted stripes.
  13. I was told the 2008's had updated hood pin units. The white hood in the photo is a 2007 SGT that had the old style hood pins and screws. My 2008 SGT came with the Shelby brand hood pins.
  14. Any idea of the dates? My 2008 shows a manufacture date of Sept 2007. And they came from Ford with the stripes? BTW- that looks like a LOT of verts!
