    Family and my cars.
  1. Shop rate ($120/hr) is what kills you. We got a quote of $2100 and change to replace both lower control arms and outer tie rod ends on our '03 Cobra at our local Ford dealership . Bought the inner and outer tie rods and lower control arms and did it in the driveway. Then got a $100 alignment. Handles fine again. Clarence
  2. I bought my '07 memorial w-end of '07 and it's my daily driver. When it was new it got lots of looks and thumbs up. Surprisingly even with all the new Shelby's, high powered Fords and other horsepower cars, I still see people taking second looks, "nice car!", giving thumbs up and asking questions at stop lights. The '07 may be the lost stepchild in performance but I still love the way it looks and drives. Thanks for all the pictures and informative .PDF's BTW. It's nice to learn new things about our cars. Clarence
  3. I have liberty mutual on my 07 Shelby GT. Cost is $1336 per year (full coverage) So far have not had to contact them for any issues.
  4. Just had to pull the cars out and get them lined up and cleaned up since its a nice sunny warm day. As mentioned it's nice to just sit back with a drink and enjoy the looks of passers by as they do a double take. Every once in a while a sports car will accelerate hard up the street to try to impress.
  5. My '07 Shelby GT is coming up on our 11th birthday together and granted it would be nice to still get some of the accessories and other parts that were offered the first few years (and I could not afford), as Ryan mentioned having the car on the road, having people take a second look, thumbs up, smiles and enjoying it is still fun. I just had someone roll down his window last night on the way home and compliment me. "nice car". BTW, I've been to the Museum 3 times since I got my car and during the tours they never once mentioned my/the '67 Shelby GT350 either. I just figure both GT's are the little brothers to the 500's and so don't get the publicity. Clarence
  6. Hey Jer, I was wondering what happened to you. Looked for you at the new Shelby home after xmas. Hope your doing well. I'm still saving up the pennies to get the hood and bumper painted. I removed the hood stripes on my own. Hopefully that will help lower the cost of the repaint. Hope to see you at an event. Clarence
  7. Greetings all, Sorry for the delay. We had a close friend pass away earlier this month. I cleaned the throttle body as everyone suggested and it seems to have solved the problem. The idle is nice and steady as it should be. And yes after 7 years and 54K miles the inside of the throttle body was quite dirty. Thanks everyone for the assist on this. Clarence
  8. Ok. Found the video. What about needed gaskets putting things back together? Clarence
  9. Phill, Shelby001, Thanks for the leads/thoughts. I will take a look this w-end and see what is going on. The car is naturally aspirated so I was thinking either a fuel or air issue. The car has been trouble free up to now.
  10. My '07 Shelby GT (manual Transmission) with 54K just developed a problem. At idle with the clutch all the way down the idle is fluctuating about 50-100 RPM from "normal" After about 5 seconds the idle goes up for about a second, drops and then repeats after another 5 seconds. Has anyone run into anything like this? Any ideas what might be going on? The car was running fine last Wednesday. Clarence
  11. Jump to the 17 minute mark to bypass all the background noise. Waiting to hear more on the cars spec's.
  12. Here's a link to some of the pictures that I took at the event. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vj9n1h4zjrmwhom/Mxh76M2ifU The link is already posted on the SAAC-38 pictures thread... Some cool videos too have been posted. Use the SAAC 38 tag... Clarence
  13. Lots of great cars at the event. Open track time and the vintage races were a blast. Here are 300+ pictures for those that could not make it there. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vj9n1h4zjrmwhom/Mxh76M2ifU Here is the parade laps from Thursday. Sorry I had to break it up into 2 parts. Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtcabOZN2GY Part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wn0N1AH7E6g Clarence
  14. Your Welcome. I hope it helps. That is what is great about the forum. We are here to help each other. Let us know what you come up with. I'm sure there are others that may be in the same position.
