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. Shelby Historian Jim King passed away

    Just a nice guy who loved to share what he knew. Glad I had the opportunity to meet him this past May. RIP Jim.
  2. 2018 Shelby GT350 engine noise

    I have just shy of 2k on my 5.2 and also have the same rattle at flat throttle in the same rev range. To me, it seems like wrist-pin rattle since it subsided as soon as the engine is loaded either way. It’s only flat throttle. It’s nasty when the engine is cold. I’ll search around for the other threads.
  3. Goin' to Vegas!

    Not quite, but I did blow my budget cap. It’s a very immersive experience. A great delivery from Jim on the tour and I learned a lot about the Man, his mission and the Shelby heritage. Also drooled liberally on myself over the cars in the facility. I’m very happy I made the time to go. Some images here. http://s259.photobucket.com/user/paulcissa/slideshow/GT350
  4. Goin' to Vegas!

    Oh my. In the Heritage Center now. I think “overwhelming” is an understatement. My fun money won’t last long.
  5. Goin' to Vegas!

    Hey Chris, Hope you’re well! I just got lucky and drew the straw on this one. Team of three from my division got selected to do a technical conference and it just worked out. The downside is two red-eye flights so I’m gonna maximize my time on the ground.
  6. Goin' to Vegas!

    I’m stoked, I don’t gamble, days and evenings are completely occupied while I’m on the ground other than the 5 hour gap between lunch and my flight out. I blocked that out right away. Taking a business associate from LA with me to serve him some Shelby Kool-Aid. Did I mention I was stoked? Thanks for all the advice and comments.
  7. Goin' to Vegas!

    Probably not deserving of it's own thread, but work has me put in Vegas next week and i have an afternoon free before I have to get back to the airport. So, I check the website and I'm all giddy excited that the CS Museum is right around the corner from my hotel. Hot damn, here I come! I don't travel much, never been to Vegas and now the stars are all aligned. Just wanted to share my "Woo-hoo!" moment with the collective. Any advice? I'll take it!

    No way man! You’re justified feeling this way. I'll attempt to relate.... I grew up in an auto family. My dad did custom leather upholstery for high end cars from classic Rolls-Royce down through now classic Mercedes cars and everything in between. I was always surrounded with the coolest cars and had no idea how fortunate I was. Then he passed away when I was a teenager. My mom kept kids fed and housed, but we had squat. I worked as a mechanic for years. Fast forward 30 years. i married my HS sweetheart, we worked our asses off to buy a home and raise a son. Now 56, a data security engineer and finally some disposable income! I fell in love with the s550 GT350 and cherish it on the same level as those classic cars that I now appreciate like never before. Keep it clean and it gives back everything you put into it. I dote over my car like I did for my wife when I was 18 because, well, it’s special. I worked hard to get here and don’t much care what anyone else thinks of that. It’s a milestone in my life’s story and my teenage son is having those same experiences I had at his age in the world of cool sports cars. enjoy it, you deserve it.
  9. explains for me what a trech pack car is? I love your shop! I’m Jonesing!
  10. Modification Central

    I spent winter scheming on the mod subject, but i’m torn between keeping it as close to stock as possible and still doing the things I think the car deserves. So, lighting upgrade for better visibility, oil separators, short shifter, jacking rails and ceramic coating is where I’m at. Not going to track the car and I really want to limit the mods to functional stuff.

    Which means I best not ever get near a Viper lest I do something I might regret (at the hands of my spouse). Thanks for that valuable, life-saving insight!

    I guess I might be in the minority, but I love the Recaros in my 17. Drove it 6 hours home after taking delivery and they never gave me any reason to bitch. I’m 56, 180#, 5’11”. I'm used to the restrained seating from the SCCA days of my 20’s and 30’s and when I sat my overweight ass in the Recaros for the first time it was like visiting an old friend. As far as the torque curve goes, it took me 100 miles to figure out where the VooDoo likes to live and the song it sings can be intimidating to those (my wife) not used to living in the middle of the tach. For me, it was like being returned to the days of my youth and I’m completely smitten with the driving experience I get every time I climb (that’s what it is) into the cockpit. I love normally aspirated, big-hp, short-stroke engines that can fool me into believing I’m not a geezer, even though I really am. I just ain’t done having fun yet. I won’t be selling my GT350 anytime soon.
  13. It's winter where I am and my GT350 is in hibernation. This time of year I'm busy teaching my son how to hit goalies in the ears with a pound of rubber. March is coming....
  14. Drilled and slotted Rotors

    Form follows function. My stockers are more than adequate for spirited commutes and Friday night hooligans gatherings.
  15. Will Open Registration be announced via this thread or should we be watching elsewhere? Thanks!
