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!

    2006 Shelby GT-H Coupe
  1. GT-H Hood

    Follow-up.... So, instead of removing the hood, I decided to take her for a ride on a nice, relatively warm/sunny day. When I returned, I left her in the driveway to get some sun in hopes of the water evaporating some (at least I wanted to see if that would work if the hood was warmed up). Of course, the engine was hot too. Later on when I opened the hood, the sloshing sound I heard previously from the water running to the back of the hood was non-existent. So, it seems warming up the hood helped to evaporate the small amount of water that was trapped in it. Works for me! Appreciate all of the other suggestions!!
  2. GT-H Hood

    Well, the hood pin holes are the only place that are open (I didn't have the pins in during the heavy rain, which probably would have helped to prevent rain from running in). I don't know of any other place where water could have gotten in, unless it seeped in through the holes where the rivets are that attached the faux rubber deep draw vent in the recessed area. The funny thing is the water only seems to be trapped on the driver's side. Looks like I'll be removing the hood. :/
  3. FRPP Rear Shocks

    Found a pair of new OEM Ford performance Dynamic rear shocks (part # M-18001-AR) on e-bay for just $79.00 - the ones used in the original build as part of the FRPP lowering kit. A lot cheaper than what Summit Racing was selling them for!
  4. GT-H Hood

    Harald - so where should I drill the holes after removing the blanket? The water sounds like it's running down the driver's side of the hood to the back when I open it, but difficult to tell which cavity it's in. I tried removing the lower hood bracket bolt to see if it would come out there, but no luck. Of course, I need to be careful to only drill into an area of the hood where there is a big enough void and not through a section that is thinner. I'd hate to come through on the top side. I suppose I could drill it in the front cavity (where I think the water got in through the hood pin holes), which is likely where it's sitting and would drain out (hopefully) when the hood is closed. I was thinking about drilling a hole in the circle area where the hood touches the rubber bumpers when closed.
  5. GT-H Hood

    Recently was away from home with my always garaged and never driven in rain GT-H and had to leave it outside during a heavy all night rain. Wasn't too concerned about it, but when I went to open the deep draw style hood to finish drying things off there, I heard a rush of water from inside the hood cavity on one side moving to the back of the hood. When I closed the hood, it came back forward. I was like "what"??? So, the water is 'stuck' inside the hood cavity. I couldn't figure out how it could have gotten in there, except for through the holes for the hood pins. I suppose that's possible, as the rain was really coming down all night and running down the hood in that direction. Or, it could have seeped in from the draw area of the hood where the faux vent is attached with the chrome rivets and where water collects. So, has anyone else experienced this dilemma, and if so, how did you drain the water? If I'm the only one - how do you suggest I get the water out? The only thing I can think of is to drill a small hole on the underside of this fiberglass hood where the gap is between the bottom side and top (very carefully) and let it slowly drain. I can't imagine letting it remain in there would be good.
  6. Looking for replacement rear shocks for my 2006 GT-H (got one that's leaking). They are part of the FRPP kit that Shelby used when they modified the car and put the lowering springs on, sway, etc. (see photo of what I assume are the correct ones - not my car but same set-up). I cannot for the life of me find any place where they sell just the rear shocks (same blue ones) that were used. Seems that you have to buy the front struts too, which I don't need. I figured I should replace both rears at the same time (vs. just one). I also don't know if they are the adjustable type, or non-adjustable. Assume the latter. Any help would be appreciated.
  7. Airbag Recall Notice

    Finally received recall letter from Ford stating parts are in. Took forever. I do wonder though, after what I'm hearing in the news, if all they're doing is replacing it with another Takata unit. I mean, who else makes 'em?
  8. #337 in Vegas

    Steve - what size tires are on 337 and what wheels/size? Hard to see from the angle of the photo. Thanks....
  9. These are okay looking. Just not into the new body style at all and what Ford did to it. Consequently, only so much can be done with it aftermarket-wise, unlike the previous gen. I'll take my 2006 coupe over this one for the looks alone.
  10. 2016 Shelby GT-H hero cards

    Hi Troy - was noticing on the SAAC 41 site, under the listing of car classes, it shows: 2007-Present Shelby GT500/GT500KR 2010-Present Shelby GT/GT H/GT350 However, no mention of 2006/2007 Shelby GT-H. Might be more appropriate to say, "2006-Present Shelby GT-H/GT//GT500/GT500KR/GT350". Covers all the bases in one line in order of their introduction. Just thought it was strange since the theme of the show, according to the site, is to celebrate the Hertz cars. Gary
  11. Shelby GT H Painted Calipers

    Same here. Mine was an earlier build - #0093, but it seems that older builds may have also been included. I guess the question is who DOESN'T have painted calipers?
  12. Just wondering who wrote the press release? It still mentions the "faux gas cap", but it doesn't have that - just like all of the other new gen. 'stangs. Wish someone would start putting it on though. It would help to make that car look a little better! No brainer IMO.
  13. 2016 Shelby GTH Press Release

    ...."much shorter" that is....
  14. 2016 Shelby GTH Press Release

    The one hanging on the wall looks much short than the overly long new gen 'stangs.
