  1. Thanks again for posting. That dual super charger set up is sweet and would have been a nice option to have available back in the day. I was aware of the Shelby prototype coupes dot com site and had been checking it from time to time since they posted it up, but the site seemed pretty much dormant until recently. I was hoping to see some of the restoration as it was being done over the past couple of years. Glad they were both restored and hopefully plenty of Mustang/Shelby fans will get to see them.
  2. Thanks for posting. With the recent McQueen Bullitt car auctioning off for around $3.7 million, it is going to be interesting to see what the Green Hornet and Little Red will bring. No matter what they go for, it is nice to see these two unique and very interesting pieces of Shelby History being preserved.
  3. Thanks, just read it cover to cover.Enjoyed the Ken Miles article.
  4. 2019 model, 2500 miles, probably still under warranty, get thee to a dealership. Thou hast coverage.
  5. OP, what year and type of Shelby do you have? Also what type blower?
  6. Nice car. Welcome to Team Shelby.
  7. Those look like Shelby SAAB rims. I think he had a brief time where he supplied custom wheels for SAAB. I think it was some time around the mid 1990’s
  8. why even bother posting here when its already been mentioned twice that there is a topic on the MACHE. Now its been mentioned 3 times,get a clue Doc, you seem like a good dude, be part of the solution to improve TS, not part of the problem.
  9. Thank you for the clarification and intelligently answering my question.. I didn't catch that the Bradenton Car was pre production, the Title said it was a stock mustang.
  10. nice run no doubt, but it wasn't a world record. That young man shouldn't clcikbait his titles like that if its not true. Here is a video of a guy who wan a 10.614 at 133.21 in the 1/4 mile down in Bradenton Florida over a month ago.
  11. Interesting announcement from Autoblog: After a daylong media drive, auto media and enthusiasts have only just opened the discussion on the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Nevertheless, the only thing better than the great toy you have in your hands is the potentially greater toy you might one day get. That why, on a trip to the Shelby American Heritage Center during the GT500 launch, CarBuzz asked the folks at Shelby American how far they might push the GT500's 5.2-liter supercharged Predator V8. Remember, Shelby already gets 800 horsepower out of the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 for its top-shelf Super Snake model, a gain of 340 hp over the current Mustang GT. It wasn't a Shelby exec who answered the CarBuzz query, however, but Ford Performance marketing manager Jim Owens, who said, "at least 1,000 [horsepower.]." That sounds like an insider's nod to how much firepower Ford left on the table waiting to be unlocked by a company like Shelby. An even four-figure number would, as with the Super Snake, add 240 hp to the stock GT500 tally. Don't expect the Super Snake to go away, though. CarBuzz also asked what such a car might be called, and this time Shelby answered. Company President Gary Patterson told the site that Super Snake belongs to models powered by the 5.0-liter V8. The Predator would need to be christened with something else, which "may be a new name, or may be a name from the past." more info here: https://www.autoblog.com/2019/10/30/ford-mustang-shelby-gt500-ford-gt/
  12. In the previous video posted, How can that youtuber claim he set a world record with a 10.665 at 132.96 in his GT500 ......when there was a guy that ran a 10.614 at 133.21 mph in a 2020 GT500 in Bradenton Florida a month ago? https://youtu.be/KEsted6S8kg
