Team Shelby Club 2019 Team Shelby Membership Kit Please note that membership contents are subject to change.   Team Shelby was designed and engineered by real enthusiasts inside and out of Shelby.   Team Shelby was originally formed in 2008 by Carroll Shelby. 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! He wanted to link all of the enthusiasts into one "dream garage"... thus, Team Shelby was born!   Team Shelby has many free, open access forums, news sections and member only areas dedicated to the community.   In addition, Team Shelby has a full series of events for 2019, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more! Ownership of a Shelby is not required to be a member. The club is dedicated to serving all Shelby enthusiasts past and present including those that own cars built in the 1960's and Shelby Dodges too!

    Plenty, thanks.
  1. What would you rather have?

    A nice collectable for sure - but not a KR.
  2. What would you rather have?

    The S197 does look sweet in DHG - here’s a pic of my ‘08 Bullitt:
  3. What would you rather have?

    I like ‘em all. Mine happens to be black. Wouldn’t kick any of ‘em out of the garage though. ^_^ Years ago, many others had the same questions about which to get - the ‘08 with the cool “anniversary” badges, or the ‘09, which supposedly had the better flywheel in most of ‘em, and the funky, modded Exploder diff cover (not all ‘08s had it). I think that at this point, it makes no real difference. Condition / mileage of the car is what matters most, followed by whether it’s been tastefully modded or not (did Mr. Shelby scribble on anything?), also the original paperwork and all the goodies it came with... I still have most of the stuff mine was supposed to have and it’s still mostly stock. My brake cooling kit is still new in the box. Either year would be just fine; my KR is an ‘09.
  4. 18" Alcoa wheels for a 08- 09 KR

    A few KRs will lose wheels from unfriendly curb incidents. I imagine more people are building KR clones, too. Chances are pretty slim that ALCOA will ever do another run of these in 18”, so prices are bound to climb. Thing is though, there was an abundance of these after KR production ended - and Ford Racing blew ‘em out cheaply. Some of us picked up a spare set in case we ever needed it. I was just wondering if prices had climbed enough to give me that warm, fuzzy feeling - my spare set is still new in the box.
  5. 18" Alcoa wheels for a 08- 09 KR

    Has anyone seen a new set of four sell recently? Just wondering what they go for these days. Took a look at ebay sold listings and see no sets have recently sold.
  6. Goodyear eagles.

    They’re only worth having on a show car but as others have said. - old rubber just won’t be safe (or work very well) if you push the car at all. I also think they weren’t the best tires available, even when fresh and new.
  7. Hello

    Hello from California!
  8. The '01s were kind of cool, too. I am partial to the '08-'09 Bullitt style, though. ^_^
  9. NEW Shelby owner, waiting for the car!

    Very nice SS! Welcome from California!
  10. 2nd Set of Wheels

    There are still plenty of the KR wheels around... They'll pop up when the prices for 'em go up. How do I know..? That's when everyone sitting on the spares will sell. ^_^
  11. Road Racing 09 GT500 KR .... Anyone?

    Our old friend sideoiler...?
  12. Purchasing CSM No. 08KR0309

    Being post-title allows for aftermarket mods anyone can make without DOT being involved, pretty much at your own risk. The GT500s that were turned into SS/40th had already been sold and registered. I suspect the KR duct kits weren't installed because they weren't part of what was submitted to DOT for road certification. Maybe they were considered too crude, or maybe the parts were just an afterthought, considered necessary during further testing after the car was already submitted to DOT for certification.
  13. They're awesome in every color! When I bought my black '09, I had a choice of 3 colors (inc. red & silver). Thought black would get me into the least trouble...
  14. 2008 Gt500Kr For Sale

    I bought my '09 brand new and don't give a rat's behind about what any troll like sideoiler / kxbyrns0mj72h53 says they should be worth. My car doesn't care either. I'm sure he'll end up buying a cheap one someday, but it likely will have been wrecked or abused, or changed hands several times before it's finally his. Not what I wanted in a KR, so I bought new (and got a fairly good deal when I did). I wasn't interested in cheap; just nice and clean.
  15. Kr Andrews Collection Auction Result

    Please go haunt the Corvette forums and stop trying to annoy Shelby owners. Nobody cares what you think our cars (which apparently you don't have) are worth or will ever be worth. Maybe your Honda Civic needs a bigger wing... Why not go out and have a look?
