  1. I guess it depends on how you look at the sale of these vehicles as to whether it is sad or not. I for one do not think it is sad. I am sure it is expensive to maintain, store and pay taxes and insurance on all those vehicles. Carroll always said built his cars to be driven, so in that line of thought, I think it is great that these vehicles are being offered out in to the public for people to enjoy. It’s likely some will go to other collectors/museums, but some will go in to the hands of people that may actually drive them or take them to car shows for others to enjoy. The other upside is hopefully it raises fund for Carroll’s Foundation. None of us really know what drives the decisions made since Carroll's passing and at times it may be perplexing to the general public, but hopefully they have people in place that are doing their best to keep his company and legacy alive.
  2. How to Order New Shelby

    if you are curious, why don't you just give them a call...............
  3. The link worked when I clicked it. Nice cars.
  4. Shelby American Racing

    I do not know the value of your framed art/print/poster. However, here may be some clues. ATS "Ascenseurs pur Mesure" translated means "ATS Custom Lifts". They are a well-known French company based in Paris. They build custom lifts, and by “lifts” I mean custom elevators for High end Homes and condo and commercial buildings. They have sponsored several race teams for Lemans in the past as a form of advertisement for their company. I don’t think they go back as far as Lemans sponsorship in 1960s era though. You didn’t provide a clear picture of the autographs and other letterings on the piece but the one clue is ”The Shelby Heart Fund”. The number you see out to the right appears to be European phone number. That number may no longer be valid since the art/print appears to be maybe 1990’s era. My guess it was some kind of advertising /promo poster for ATS at an event that also helped raise funds for the Shelby Heart Fund. You may want to contact ATS and see if they can give you an idea of when it was made and whether there was only one or 1 million produced. Here is the contact info for ATS: Intervention no .: 0811 460 260 Telephone: 01 80 60 65 00 Fax: 01 80 60 64 63 Email: commercial@ats-ascenseurs.com
  5. Floor mats slippage

    try Eagle Klaws, you can buy them on Amazon or Ebay. They have good reviews and they are only a few bucks.
  6. Sell or keep 2011 GT500

    You can sell the 2011 and get the gt350, if you like it then great, if not you can always go back to a 2007 to 2104 "retro" as there are plenty of them for sale at any given time
  7. HEAT EXTRACTORS - HOOD 4OTH ANNIVERSARY

    I was on my mobile and didn't see they were sold. Yeah, I think you are right that they were in the parts catalog for the blink of an eye and then pulled.

  9. I counted 30 of the 2016 GT-H's for sale.

    ok, just was wondering how you came up with your stats. So it looks like about 50 or 60 cars left in the fleet if your numbers are correct. If Hertz is happy with the pace the cars are selling then good for them, but there is no denying the way they have gone about it has not helped the value of the cars. If they sell at a rate of 8 to 10 per month then maybe they will have them sold off by the end of the year..........
  10. I counted 30 of the 2016 GT-H's for sale.

    By the webiste last month there were about 48 cars, so far this month there are 44........ so that would equate to 4 cars not 10. I realize they add and subtract cars at varying times so it is difficult if you are outside of Hertz to know the exact amount of GTH cars sold. Are you a Hertz employee?.... or is your count of 10 verified by Hertz somehow?,............. or are you using new math?
  11. HEAT EXTRACTORS - HOOD 4OTH ANNIVERSARY

    did you try directly contacting SAI in Las Vegas yet?
  12. As Johnny Carson once said, there is a number larger than infinity, it's infinity plus shipping and handling.......
  13. Current GT-H prices

    you are welcome, good luck with your sale.
  14. Current GT-H prices

    go here, this individual does a pretty good job of keeping up with GTH cars and recent pricing.
  15. Shopping New Shelby

    Not sure why you are complaining. The configurator on Ford's website is pretty straightforward. If you are trying to do something special like a spoiler delete then yeah you may need to talk to a dealer who might be able to make that happen. If you are trying to get a special stripe color then you are probably going to have to order it with a stripe delete and then make arrangements with a dealer or body shop. Some dealers are better than others, so if you didn't like the lack of knowledge, then try a different dealer in your area. If you post what town or state you are in then somebody on here may be able to give you the name of a good dealer that is Shelby knowledgeable.
  16. A Short Video of #G4794

    The other upside is if you ever get a dent or scratch and repair it, the primer won’t show very much……….:)
  17. I counted 30 of the 2016 GT-H's for sale.

    Stopping supply does not automatically affect demand. If you use the GTH as an example , in order to create “demand” Hertz has steadily lowered the price of the 2016 GTH. $150k, ……$80K,………..$75k, ……..$54k, ……..$49.9k,……$44.9k, and now $42.5K……..The amount of supply has had little to no impact because the majority of consumers still did not or do not see a fair value level even at $44.9k. Otherwise Hertz would not have now again dropped the price on about 2 dozen of them to $42.5k. When supply and demand meet an equilibrium these cars will sell at a much better pace. If they were selling at a rate Hertz thought was acceptable they would not keep dropping the price in an attempt to generate demand. I am not bashing the 2016 GTH, just showing an example of some basic economics.
  18. Daily Driver

    I currently own a 2000 Nissan Frontier that has been in my family for over 18 years. It currently has over 140,000 miles on it and we have never had a problem with it. I have also owned a 2002, a 2003 and a 2004 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab 4x4 Short Bed. Combined I have logged well over 600,000 miles in Frontiers over the past 18 years. They are good trucks and I never had a problem with any of them. In terms of dependability they are almost bulletproof. However they are kind of plain inside. After driving various Frontiers for over a decade and running up over 220,00 miles on my 2004 Frontier, I went in and test drove a 2013 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab. I liked the new design at the time ok, but I didn’t like that it somehow felt the cab had less headroom. I am just over 6 feet tall and my hair rubbed against the headliner which was annoying. The interior was but a bit plain. The seats were too flat for my comfort as well. I then thought, I have had 3 or 4 Frontiers already and may want a change, so I went over to a Toyota dealership and tried out a Tacoma. The 2013 Tacoma drove softer than the Frontier but still handled well. The inside layout was better appointed and didn’t look “plain” like the Frontier. The seats were better In the Tacoma. The Tacoma also had more headroom. I also liked some of the under seat and behind the seat storage features that the Tacoma had. I purchased a white, loaded 2013 Tacoma that also had what is called the TEXAS Package. It comes with some badging and bigger custom wheels and tires. I have had the Tacoma for going on 5 years now with no problems at all and I like it. There is one small thing that I don’t like and it is that on occasion there is a slight hesitation in throttle response when you are light on the throttle from a dead stop. I had it looked at but they said it was normal. I am looking at new trucks and have test driven a 2018 Frontier and a 2018 Tacoma both in Crew Cab 4x4 Short Bed. While you can’t go wrong with either truck as far as dependability, I would still chose the Tacoma over the Frontier . To me the Tacoma just looks way better inside and out. The fitment also appears better. The new Tacoma also feels a bit softer on the road but still handles well. The 2018 Tacoma also didn’t have the slight hesitation in the throttle that my 2013 has. The Tacoma also is quite capable off road, in fact I think it leads its class in off road capability. Oh and TRD(Toyota Racing Division) makes a really nice bolt on supercharger package for the Tacoma that will make it run like a scalded dog. If you are looking for a dependable midsize truck with good on and off road capability with good styling and a well-appointed interior go with the Tacoma. No opinion on the Chevy. I am just not a GM guy............
  19. I counted 30 of the 2016 GT-H's for sale.

    Some thought that, but the way it has dragged out and with them taking over a year to get the price even remotely reasonable and combined with the release of 17/18 models people have moved on. I still think $37 to 39k at this point is where to be in order to move them off the lots at a decent pace. If they don’t sell a significant amount of cars at $42.5k in the next month or two then a $37 to 39k tag is where they are going to end up at by mid-summer anyway.
  20. I counted 30 of the 2016 GT-H's for sale.

    yet another price drop folks...........Hertz's site now has about 48 each 2016 GTH's with about half of them dropped to $42,500.
  21. 08KR0614

    That car didn't look too bad until you got to the 3rd picture.......
  22. 2017 GT350 R

    Funny how they cranked out those “rare” GT350R cars at about twice the rate in 2017 as they did in 2016, …instead of a few hundred there are now over 1600+ GT350R’s rolling the streets....... and counting even more coming in 2018……….. yet many dealers were/are still able to continue to get well above MSRP…........
  23. From an enthusiast point of view, that is good news on the mats. It’s not like those are really some difficult to make custom piece nor does it have to be stocked in house. They can always call their vendor and have a few more stitched up and drop shipped to a customer. Now in regard to all the unique “spare parts”, well, I am not sure I would buy in to that 15 year promise completely, because from a business standpoint it might be a bit of a challenge to carry inventory on a short run of vehicles for 15 years. The 2006/07 GTH and 2007/08 SGT ,of which they made well over 5000 units, .......unfortunately they didn’t keep that stuff around……… that SGT/GTH related stuff started drying up within about 2 to 3 years. I am not saying you should run out tomorrow and buy a boatload of spare part's but it is going to be interesting to see if you can get a polycarbonate hood, custom vents, rockers, stripe kits, badges, etc in the year 2033………or for that matter even beyond 2021. Ps: I am glad you will be able to get your mats.
  24. Quick Lane Las Vegas, NV

    Well, not to split hairs down to a sub atomic level....... but..........even with taxes on that 139 bucks...... I am still not gonna crawl my old ass up under a car to save less than 20 Bucks......
  25. Quick Lane Las Vegas, NV

    $160 for an oil change for the 2015+ GT350 is a very good price. It takes 10 quarts. If you go to somewhere online like LMR they sell a 10 quart synthetic oil kit and filter for $139.00. So by the time you pay shipping on that kit you are probably at or above $160.00 just to get it to your door to do an oil change yourself. I’d pay the $160 at that dealer any time. Its not worth saving zero to maybe 5 dollars by dragging out tools, jacking up or ramping the car, then crawl under the car, drain the oil, use a torque wrench to put on the new filter and then clean up the mess and have to dispose of the oil………..nah, I’m going to sit in that dealership in the nice cool air conditioned showroom/waiting area and maybe look over a car or two while I am there, catch up on some text messages or surf the net on my iphone.
