  1. Hey Steven, thanks for clarifying the story I shared, that's all I was looking for. Like I said, I wasn't advocating what the old guy said was true, but it sure made for an interesting story. Thanks again Jerry
  2. The reason I'm trying to find out, is to support or disprove a story I was told back in 2010 when we attended Mustang Week in Myrtle Beach. We pulled into a Ford Dealership one evening to kill some time before one of the events, and several of the sales personnel came out to look at our cars. One particular, older, well dressed, gentleman walked around my 07 white SGT, paused and said, son (i was 55 then) this is a low vin numbered car isn't it. I replied yes sir, it's number 0104, how could you tell. Your hood scoop gave it away, all of these early vin numbered SGT's were equipped with the scoops that came from Carroll Shelby's personal inventory, that came from the early sixties cobras that he built. I'm trying to be respectful, but I'm thinking to myself, get out. He went on to say there is a recall on these scoops, but do not turn this scoop back in for the upgraded one, you'll be sorry later on. I'm not advocating what the old guy shared with me was actually true, but it sure was a cool story. By the way, my pristine 28,000 mile 07 SGT is still wearing that warped 1st generation scoop.
  3. When all of my Mustang buddies and myself would travel to car events, they would always tell me that I looked like a bobcat going down the road. I let one of the guys drive my car so i could see for myself, and they were right. I didn't have the nerve to drill the holes in my trunk lid, so I spent a year searching for a lid that was already set up for a spoiler. I put a GT500 spoiler on my 07 white SGT and haven't regretted it one bit. The only bobcat in the group now is an 08 Bullitt.
  4. Can anyone clarify if all of the 07 SGT's were equipped with what we call the 1st generation scoops, that have the imitation rivets and bolted on underneath with four nuts, or did they change later in production that year, to the scoops with the actual functioning rivets.
  5. Hey Grabber, just wanted to say thanks for all of the information you provided. I just picked up my 07 red GT500 from the dealership yesterday, they installed the 2010 clutch assembly that I purchased from Tasca Ford. They also installed a KR short throw shifter that I bought last year. Needless to say, the car never drove and shifted so well driving home. Thanks again, Jerry in Ohio
  6. My 10 year anniversary will be on July 15th, which is actually my birthday. I added a Kenne Bell 2.6 supercharger when the extended warranty ran out in 2013. I also bought a 2007 red with white stripes gt500 in 2013, but my white SGT vin 0104 will always be my 1st Love, which happens to be my last name as well.
  7. I have 4 wheels and the tires for $4,000 if anyone is interested. They have less than 500 miles on them.
