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! He wanted to link all of the enthusiasts into one "dream garage"... thus, Team Shelby was born!   Team Shelby has many free, open access forums, news sections and member only areas dedicated to the community.   In addition, Team Shelby has a full series of events for 2018, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more!

  1. LOL, thank you sir. No different than yours, except bigger tires maybe.
  2. Finished some modifications. Filled the lower grill with diamond black mesh and polished aluminum "Shelby" lettering. Also installed black textured ABS plates for the surrounds (brake ducts). Correct PIAA lights centered behind the upper grill, tinted to neutralize. New faux gas cap from SHR on the rear with a dome vinyl S-Snake. Also tinted the brakes lights with 50%, framed with black brake light bezels from AM.
  3. https://www.customcargrills.com/index.asp Got the lettering plasma cut a few years ago. Matt did a custom font for me; microgramma bold/italic. Also got the 6"x36" black XXL grill from there too. Glue the letters on with Goop. Note: I mounted the letters in a straight line before installing, and didn't take into account the tilted down angle, causing the "SHELBY" to smile when mounted flush to the inner fascia. I decided to "straighten" the lettering by mounting the upper spots of the grill inward from the fascia about one inch. You can still see a slight curve, but its less noticeable now. And by mounting inward, I got the desired effect of a deeper opening. FYI; my intercooler restricts the depth of the lower mounting points to almost none. In a perfect world, I would mount all points back an inch or so, creating a more open mouth. Notice the rear window lettering; I followed the curve of the defrost lines, but at eye level they appear straight.
  4. Replace brake pads and fluid for track days?

    ^^^^^^^^^ This! Noticeably better bite! DOT3 is squishy compared to DOT4, even during daily use.
  5. "the Black List"

    That's the GT500 lettering (larger). This is the correct lettering http://www.shelbystore.com/product-p/S8MS-16606.htm Select the stick on lettering (not the pin type) Use the letter spacing that NZ Shelby KR provided above. Make sure to clean the paint and stripes with alcohol before applying lettering.
  6. Stripes were done at Shelby. Roll back up to the post with the '07 black and whites "before" photo.
  7. GTH44

    Check Redline hood struts. You might try posting this request in the 2016 GT-H forum further down on the main page.
  8. Goin' to Vegas!

    Did you buyout the store?
  9. Goin' to Vegas!

    Best times to drive to Vegas is in the spring and fall, when the its not too hot. I lived in Vegas from '05 - '12, shooting poker photos (and playing ). I remember driving to Colorado and saw a sea of black and white mustangs in a large parking lot on the right, north of the city. Guess what year that was? I probably glanced at the car I have today.
  10. New 2006 Hertz In the House

    Very clean, congratulations!
  11. Had my passenger bag fixed earlier this month (May). Driver done last year.
  12. "the Black List"

    Congratulations! Picture? Proper placement of the lettering would put the S and Y outside the stripes. I've seen a few SGT's that either compressed the lettering within the stripe, or moved the letter badging to the left like the GT500 (personal choice). There is another member in the stripes thread that replaced the silver 9" stripes with matte black 10.25" stripes, placed the lettering at the correct spacing that made the S and Y within the stripes.
  13. Goin' to Vegas!

    Take a cab, its always further than it looks on a map (from the hotel). Allow at least 2 hours. If you can time it; take the tour. Don't buyout the store! Enjoy!
  14. Rebuilt Shelby GT

    Did you keep the original scoop? Nice keepsake to hang on the wall.
  15. Found this, I'm curious? Thoughts? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-Ford-Mustang-SHELBY-GT350SR-575Hp/282902138934?hash=item41de481036:g:CSEAAOSwISRagX3t&vxp=mtr
  16. Dropped my province and postal code in to get an idea on the price of shipping. Talk about getting you in shipping and handling!
  17. Good to know BB, thanks. ... meanwhile, the search continues for a "reasonably priced" antennae delete.
  18. Daily Driver

    Had an '96 Aerostar XLT for many years (don't laugh). Mostly highway miles for traveling to photo shoots. Had a buddy build a bed platform/storage compartments so I could be on location for the right light, and save on hotel rooms. I'm guessing I slept in the back for a total of 2 years during the late 90's to mid '00's. Pushed it to 450K+ miles before a lot of things wore out at the same time. Nowadays I drive a 2012 Venza as my DD. I did have an 07 Escape before that but my nephew got it as a hand-me-down.
  19. Write Steve at stevent@shelby.com . Include your VIN and he should be able to verify what you want to know.
  20. This might work as well ... select the lower grill. https://www.americanmuscle.com/0509-retro-billet-grille.html
  21. Brakes Upgrade

    ... And DOT 4 fluid
  22. Throttle Response Issue

    Excellent advise, run the gas tank through. mfield2a makes a good point regarding fuel delivery. You installed the SC last fall, was it a "Shelby" shop install? The reason I ask is wondering if your fuel pump was upgraded (i.e., GT500 dual pumps, or a boost-a-pump)? If not; you're starving the engine. Not trying to sound condescending, just covering basic bases. OR ... maybe your Traction Control module is kicking in and reducing engine power to regain traction?
  23. Hood Replacement

    To clarify: its the stainless screws used to mount the hood pin plates to the hood that are the culprit for the corrosion. Stainless screws do not mesh with the aluminum hood (galvanic couple). Oddly enough, the new hood pin package still contains stainless screws. I found aluminum replacements at Home depot for about $2. I'm not sure if the corrosion stops after removing the screws, but maybe just resurfacing the hood (paint job), and replacing the stainless screws with aluminum ones might be your least expensive solution?
