Most of the time, we get on theses forums when we are looking to buy, excited for our order or are having a problem. So I ask those that are just out enjoying them, where are they now?
When I was researching my potential car I must have read all the posts. I get the car , 2012 GT500, in 2014 with 5k on the clock and I am excited and re reading because now I am one of you. I bought lots of Shelby T shirts and hats, but last time in Vegas, I pointed to the walls in there and said to my wife, see, I don't have every shirt and hat.
Mostly I just drive it. For me it is a weekend cruiser. I have only put on 16,000 miles. I live in Arizona and it has been on a couple trips to get those miles. I have been doing the Shelby bash in Vegas each year and playing on the track with other Shelbys, Drove to Sonoma Cal for a Shelby event, two track days and drove it home along the coast highway. Became a member of a local performance driving club and got in a few more track days. Take it to cruise in's, hang with some Mustang guys, basically take it out just to enjoy it, not to get from point A to B.
The only modifications have been, DOT 5 brake fluid and decorative side scoops, like the 60's cars had. I do not see a need to modify it. But in fairness, I have a reproduction 427 Cobra, that does get modified, so that itch is scratched.
As the car has been so trouble free and I am not constantly modifying it, I find I am not on here as much. However I have not lost the excitement of the car.
It is as much fun now as when I got it. I can't wait for the next bash, but........... I just might bring the cobra.
So, how about you?
