  1. B-J R package/tune lmao

    I wondered if it might have been a reference to the 642 HP tune out of Ford Performance that someone used and it just rolled along from there.
  2. B-J R package/tune lmao

    Found some of the R model culprits: https://www2.motorauthority.com/news/1050211_2011-shelby-mustang-gt350-final-specs-new-624-hp-package https://www.automobilemag.com/news/2011-shelby-gt350-to-get-624horsepower-option-5197/ https://roadtesttv.wordpress.com/2010/10/09/2011-shelby-gt350r-624-horsepower-road-test-tv/ https://www.supercars.net/blog/2011-shelby-gt350/ Steve: I have no idea who gave the "R model tune" term to the media when it came out , but they seemed to have latched on to it and some of us with 624 HP versions followed the use to differentiate it from the 525 HP model. I, for one, know that the higher horsepower is not a special edition racetrack model as any 2011-14 GT350 is a racetrack ready Shelby as it was built, but tried linked onto the the R model term since it was prevelant in publications. I never considered if it was a factory term or not or just someones easy designation for the higher power engine. Don
  3. B-J R package/tune lmao

    As reviewed before, the "R" addition name came from a media review of the 624 HP tune to differentiate it from the new 11 GT350 from the 525 HP tune. Never was an SA designation but it got adapted. Just like Ford never built a 1964 1/2 Mustang. That wass the media name for it after it was released in April 1964, a half year before the normal release of new cars in the fall after Labor Day. Ford refered to them as "early 1965" Mustangs, but the 64 1/2 designation has stuck. Besides, automanufacturers have for decades released new models usually four months before the actual designated year.
  4. The New Shelby GT 500...........

    So the trans selection is based on track handling and torque inmits. There is hope for a manual. I would expect, like the DCT, it will be something colaborated with GM for those potential Z 'Vette buyers that want a manual too. https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-shows/detroit-auto-show/a25889205/2020-ford-mustang-shelby-gt500-dct-manual-possible/
  5. The New Shelby GT 500...........

    Just waiting for the SA insanity upgrades to the next generation Super Snake and 1000. KR was released to go with the anniversary date of the classic issue. Maybe a 1020 HP HP model for 2020...(track only, catless).
  6. 2020 GT500 news

    Just waiting to check out for the the next generation Super Snake or 1000 out of the SA shop with this series GT500.
  7. I counted 30 of the 2016 GT-H's for sale.

    $44,000 plus commision (10%)
  8. #96 on Jan. 11 Lots of great cars and personal time with him memories.
  9. The Lobby

    Volcanoes are quiet for last couple of months so far. And hundreds of miles away on different island from me and my zoom-zoom toys.
  10. The Lobby

    Little change here in the middle of the Pacific. 80 degrees today, 68 tonight. Mostly clear skies with a few passing clouds and sprinkles to keep the daily rainbows in sight and waterfalls flowing. There is a light breeze of about 10 mph. Sea temp is runing 77 degress and surf from 3 to 8 feet with bikinis all over the beach. There is snow on tp of Mauna Kea but we like our snow with flavored syrup in a paper cone at the beach. No winterizing of the Shelbys needed.
  11. Time Capsule Shelby

    Actually true. In Hawaii all cars are required to have two plates, one in front and same plate with a registration expiration on the rear. Upon purchase of a new car, the DMV issues the dealer a temporary single plate (heavy card board) until the registered vehicle metail license plates are issued to the owner, who can put them on themselves or have the dealer do it. The vehicle owner os the responsible party for insuring that the plates are properly on the car. An out of state vehicle can operate up to a year on out of state plates based on that state registration deadline.
  12. Time Capsule Shelby

    In Hawaii, a two plate state, the vehicle has to go goes through a safety check and the plates have to be mounted at deler expense, unless the buyer provides and approved bracket system that puts the palte on the right location (not off center or disappearing). The safety check approval is given to DMV for registration completion. For those have reasons to object to a front plate, I tell them to get a vanity plate to take the edge off.
  13. Wanted: 1967 GT500 Project

    So true, so true.
  14. The problem here is getting an appointment at the Ford dealer to get it done. Shortage of mechanics has caused delays. My 2011 GT350 is finally done and they were careful to not do any damage to the CS signed panel. Now to get the wife's 2011 Mustang GT done on the passenger side. It is a quick job that only takes a trained mechanic about 20-30 minutes, but the car sometimes has to wait a few hours in line, even with an appointment, before they get to it. Whenever I have gone into service for oil change or other work, I have left copies of the copious amount of Ford recall notices on the seat.
  15. Looking for 1967 Shelby GT500E

    Yeah, nice looking and great power.
  16. Looking for 1967 Shelby GT500E

    Interesting. I had not heard of them. At least they have the "Eleanor" Mustang correctly named and licensed under Denice Halicki, not Shelby.
  17. Looking for 1967 Shelby GT500E

    I rarely see any 67 Mustang GT500E (not a Shelby, it is legally a Halicki based movie modified Mustang) other than at auto auctions. I am not sure if there any shops that are still producing the body part molds anymore. Someone on this site might know. I am not sure if it is due the Halicki vs Shelby lawsuit from many years ago and if Halicki authorized the rights to manufacture or possibly the movie studio. It has been years since any update on this issue has been discussed by the media. Good luck with the project once you are able to find the right car.
  18. 2019 Mustang GT Convertible

    Right now, the closest dealer to me is over 2500 miles!
  19. 2019 Mustang GT Convertible

    Is there a listing of authorized Shelby dealers/
  20. 2011-2014 GT350 hood

    How did they come into possesion of the hood? Unfinished, I would expect it to still be in factory inventory.
  21. The Lobby

    Love Thanksgiving. Only Holiday that I have to deal with obnoxious relatives and can politely tell them to eat the bird or go stuff it!
  22. The Lobby

    Sorry, no more sking allowed on the mountain. Sacred site designation now. When going to highschool there over a half century ago long before there were observatories, a bunch of us took a Jeep with a surboard up to the summit in the early morning after a snowfall. We removed the skeg and used it as a snow board untikl the sun came up and snow began to rapidly melt. We went down the mountain and in about two hours later were using the same board to ride waves in 80 degree water. You cannot do that anywhere else in the U.S.
  23. The Lobby

    Incase you need to keep track of snow in Hawaii: https://www.snow-forecast.com/resorts/Mauna-Kea/webcams/latest
  24. The Lobby

    We had snow here this week in Hawaii on top of Mauna Kea. I am closer to sea level where the fall temps are in the 72-80 range on shore and 75 in the water. Got bored over the weekend so had to put some time for a scenic cruise with wife in the '11 GT350. No jackets.
