  1. Tony's right. In CA you're dealing with zealots, not rational individuals. But, heck, you know that, you live there!
  2. As a former Californian, before escaping in the middle of the night, I can tell you that CA and especially CARB doesn't care a whit about SEMA, attorneys or anyone else. They are completely autonomous and as egotistic as one can imagine. They know how much influence they wield and really enjoy it. Not only that but they kneel at the altar of the green new deal. Having said that I'm sure CARB will reasonable and sensitive to our requests, needs and suggestions...
  3. That would probably work. I went with the Michelin Pilot Super Sport and I like the way they feel, and they are a little quieter than the Goodyears. Good luck and let us know if that works out okay.
  4. I don't track mine so haven't thought of it. I'm not sure I'd want to though, since when making a sharp backing maneuver the front tires sometime will rub. Especially if there's a bit of a bump or dip I'm backing over. I decided not to go with the Goodyear when I finally had to replace the tires due to age.
  5. And you'll find lots of info, pics etc in this thread: https://www.teamshelby.com/topic/32199-grabber-orange-thread/?tab=comments#comment-496291
  6. We all keep our finger crossed that we won't have to use the insurance. I know there have been several discussions over the years about the pros and cons of various companies and the prevailing concern has always been the cost. Although the cost is important, I think coverage is the most critical. Unfortunately some of the companies change from year to year and one has to be careful that an important provision isn't affected. Good luck with your claim.
  7. So...who was this "collector car" insurance company? Sounds like you'd have been better off if the car hadn't been recovered and you could've started over.
  8. Beautiful car...and a SS automatic to boot.
  9. I think the limitation is on the post itself, not the thread. I just posted the above pic of our previous SGT as a test and it worked fine. Was your file too large?
  10. I'll play...something you don't see all that often...........
  11. I looked seriously at buying a donor Mustang and having SAI build this exact car. I just couldn't get past the graphics. There were actually a couple of different graphics packages as I recall but I was really set on the original SGT. Fortunately we found a nearly new 2006 with only 600 miles on it...deal done!
  12. Here you go: 2007 Shelby GT production totaled 5,651 Black Coupes 3,385 (2,876 manual 509 automatic) White Coupes 2,266 (1,771 manual 495 automatic) 2008 Shelby GT production totaled 2,214 Blue Coupes 1,121 (973 manual 148 automatic) Grabber Orange Coupes 215 (211 manual 4 automatic) Black Coupes 61 (47 manual 14 automatic) Blue Convertibles 778 (583 manual 195 automatic) Grabber Orange Convertibles 0 Black Convertibles 39 (28 manual 11 automatic)
  13. Not sure on the number on this type of build. As I recall, this was a post-title Mustang that was sent to Shelby to be converted to an SGT. That's where the unique graphics came from on the rear quarter panel. There different graphics packages depending on the conversion type, as I recall. I have the build numbers on the original 2006 Shelbys somewhere if you want those. Nice stable, by the way!
