  1. 2016 Shelby GT-H Spotted Thread

    T-Bone 68 I was reviewing the Forum and I came across your post. I bought 16H0035 (license 7TCH836) in November last year. I didn't realize its providence was so close to the car you rented! My car came from San Jose as well and was written about in the blog The Truth About Cars. Did you ever convert to Shelby
  2. Didn't see this coming!

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Charles Caleb Colton Oops! Somebody beat me to It.
  3. Also be careful with your hood open. I have heard of incidences where one or more of the Shelby caps disappeared while at a car show.
  4. I counted 30 of the 2016 GT-H's for sale.

    I understand your trials and tribulations. I had found a GTH in Riverside, 12.8k miles, but was later told it had minor front end damage when rear-ended another vehicle. Cost $1k for repairs, and the dealer was very upfront, showing me the receipts. Found another in Norwalk, 12.2k miles and made them a net offer (including all taxes, registration, fees, etc.) sight unseen. They hemmed and hawed for awhile then called me back and accepted my offer. Had a friend drive me from Oxnard down to Norwalk and the car was pretty much what they said it was. Had some patina from its rental history (scraped splitter, hood stripes stained, missing Shelby dash plaque) but was otherwise totally complete and Carfax clean history. The sweet spot for buying these cars may be closing.
  5. What octane gas in my GTH ?

    Update on my stumbling/stalling issues after installation of PP2. I recently opened my laptop and there was notification for an update to the PP2 software on my computer. I updated the program and flashed/installed the update to my Shelby. Took it for a drive and, so far, no stalling issues! The shifting was improved a bit as well, did not seem to lag between gears as much. Went over to Vista Ford and spoke with Peter, the Service Attendant (BTW , has been gracious and patient and overall a good guy) who thought the PP2 update was the cause of the drivability improvement. Going out tomorrow for a C&C will keep you apprised. For those of you who have already installed the PP2, recommend you update the program in your laptop and reinstall to your car. To be continued...
  6. VANITY PLATES, your best ideas.

    At the local C&C I'm amazed at how many people think I rented this from Hertz for the event... All the other good California personalized plates have been grabbed.
  7. I guess the fact that there were only 171 of the 2016 GT-H cars makes for a very small buyers pool BUT, due to so few of our cars being made, in the distant future, the scarcity of the 2016 GT-H's MAY be reflected in price appreciation. One of these days I'll tell you about my 1954 Porsche Speedster (17th one made) which I had garaged about 15 years. This was close to the oldest Speedster left in the world. Sold it over 20 years ago and used the money for a house on the beach. Unfortunately, later sold the house, too. Guess how much that car is worth now? Guess how much that house is worth now?

  9. 2016 GT-H Owners (CSM's and Photos)

    16H0035 Update. Been trying to unwind some of the patina left over from my car's rental life. I installed the Power Pack II, went to Shelby and ordered new front hood stripes and a new duplicate dash plaque (somebody lifted mine prior to me buying the car). Took my Shelby to a local car show today; I was surprised at how many people had no idea that Hertz recently had these in the rental fleet. It was fun to tell them that I had rented it just for the show...
  10. What octane gas in my GTH ?

    For a heads up: I had my local Ford Dealership install the PP2, (2016 GT-H, 12.8k miles) after which when driving the car for about 15 minutes or so, would "stumble" when accelerating. Several times was quite pronounced and even once the engine cut off momentarily and I coasted to the side of the road. My car started immediately thereafter like nothing had ever happened. I Googled around and found information about other Mustangs of our vintage with the same or similar problem, even without the Power Packs installed. I took my car back to the Dealership and they could find nothing wrong, no codes thrown. Rumor has it that if 91+ octane is not used, can create this problem. Also, rumor again, that it will take a while for the car to learn the PP2 and then the stalling/stumbling resolves. Let me know if you have any stalling or stumbling issues after your PP1.
  11. Are these Shadow lights available anywhere??

    Interesting. On my car I only had the "Pony Projection" without the GT-H. On both driver and passenger sides.
  12. Are these Shadow lights available anywhere??

    My passenger side "puddle light" with the pony projection was faulty. When I took my car in to the Ford dealership, it was replaced under warranty.
  13. 2016 Shelby GT H

  14. What octane gas in my GTH ?

    Also,. not sure I have seen the shock tower brace The shock tower brace was an "Amazon option" ;-) Have not had a chance to drive it much yet since the PP 2, but the acceleration does feel improved. Did have one cough and stall, but do not know if that was from the new Tune. With the sound tube delete (and inherently robust exhaust) didn't notice much difference concerning intake noise. Will be going to a Cars and Coffee via the freeway and will have a lot more feedback after that. Geez, these cars are fun!
  15. What octane gas in my GTH ?

    PS: Had Vista Ford put my old air cleaner, throttle body, sound tube etc. in a big box. Will keep everything in case I want to take it back to totally stock. A little update on the air cleaner, the service manager at Vista Ford was not enamored with the K&N air filters stating oil coming off them can hurt the throttle body or MAF sensor(?). I will leave the paper air filter on at least temporarily. If there's anybody in the Forum that can give us a little more insight on the oiled air filters, would greatly appreciate the feedback.
