  1. Same here. I was at the last SAAC in PIT, back on ‘08 or ‘09 before I had my ‘70 Boss 302, which I finished restoring in time to take part at the Vintage Grand Prix back in 2013 as part of the concourse. Now going back to meet up with old friends. I’m not sure if I’ll bring any cars, I find that I enjoy time at these events not having to look after them.
  2. Yes, I’m sure it is the oil. 30 years from now MCA guys will be debating what color is correct. I like the blue and I need to refresh mine, the BBK looks great. Thanks for posting the pics!
  3. Thanks shepp. I thought the same thing, but I’m seeing a lot of red filters on the KR’s. Here is a wrapper 2009 with 33 miles: https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/shelby/gt500kr/2248983.html#&gid=1&pid=6 and a 08 with 2,850 miles: https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/shelby/gt500kr/1950712.html#&gid=1&pid=7 I have found at least a dozen others with the same red filter. Seems very unlikely that these did not leave Shelby this way.
  4. Looking at pics on line I see both blue and red air filters on the 08-09 KR’s. Is this a customer change, a random selection during the builds or a date code change moving from one or the other? My ‘08 has red.
  5. Apologies for hijacking this thread, but what came in the owners manual that was unique to the KR? Mine (I’m 3rd owner) had what appeared to be all the Mustang books, plus 2 supplements. Is for the GT500 and another one for the KR. Back to the cooling kit, they pop up on eBay from time to time. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F233186823394
  6. Really strong! They look way better on your 07’ than they do on the late model GT350’s in my opinion.
  7. So after owning a SGT for a couple of years now and just picking up a GT500KR I can tell you for me it was worth the wait to go in that direction. For starters both cars have all the suspension and handling pretty much done. No watts, or adjustable panhard (I still can’t figure that one out). Both have gears swapped out. The power delivery is excellent as is the sound (no drone), the KR just has TONS more of both. The original tires on both are pretty much a joke, even the Eagle F1 supercar tires on the KR, but the Alcoa wheels are awesome. Both are fairy rare, certainly by mustang standards. Both turn heads, but most importantly mine and they put a smile on my face. So which do I like driving better? Completely different cars and each has their points. The SGT just feels a lot lighter, but the power of the KR is special. If I had to narrow it down to 1...the KR. But, for now I’m keeping both. That was my plan and for me to get there it means driving my 10yr old truck back and forth to work and wouldn’t have it any other way. (Helps that I like my truck too). Good luck with your search. All I’ll say to anyone looking to buy a S197 Shelby of any kind, they are all great cars that had a team of people working hard to deliver an experience to stir the emotions. You won’t be sorry.
  8. Ok, I was able to get a image compressed enough to post. Thanks for the congrats! I put on my first mod today...Shelby’s KR billet brake fluid cap. I can only think the reason this was not on originally is due to the extreme corrosive nature of Dot3 and the risk of “aftermarket” cap was too in mass transit and on showroom floors, but that is pure speculation on my end. Next is tires. The originals are still on an petrified they are indeed. I’ll keep for date code reasons, but that’s it.
  9. I picked up a set of KR Axel Backs for my SGT and wouldn’t you know it, they were still attached to the car. 08KR0697 officially has a new home. First, I couldn’t be happier with the purchase. For me there is something something special about these pre-title cars. Sure the 13/14 has more tech and power (the KR is plenty for now)...but it’s still a KR. I’m sure to have questions along the way, and I’m looking forward to spooling up this section of the forum. I know, I know pics, but the new iPhone image quality is so high by the time I dumb down the resolution it’s too grainy, so I have some desktop work to do. The SGT is a vista blue vert and the KR is silver.
  10. All, the survey is out there on FB!! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=395627331229851&id=211856072940312&__tn__=*s*s-R
  11. SD could commission the grille and cheap. Actually since they are a supplier, not a manufacturer, if they get their hands on the tooling they could source any of the parts. I won’t complain, at least we are getting some love. It’s just jewelry anyway. 😋
  12. I just ran across this. I have no affiliation. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F163518774399
  13. The ZL1 1LE 10 speed option just came out for 2019. The work around Ford has to address is the GT350 is already pushing $60k for a base price in 2019. From what I have read there is no plan to stop production of the GT350 in 2020??? Ford is spending a lot of time and $$ on building the GT500 hype. It’s Demon like seeding.
  14. Considering the 2019 GT350R list is $69,355 and the ZL1 1LE with a 10 Speed Auto starts at $73,190 (that’s the car the 2020 GT500 has to beat across the board) I can see starting prices closer to $77k...with options pushing $90k (carbon wheels will get it there) We shall see.
  15. Tax free loan btw...no sale = no revenue = no tax.
