  1. Just want to add I MUCH prefer the black top over the stripes, for what ever reason I am not a fan of the stripes on this car. I can not stand stripes that do not wrap around the ends that might be part of it, the little gap between the sticker and end of the hood looks awful. Orange with black Top looks Fantastic!!!
  2. Nice post!!! I just can’t get over a $80-100K car having that interior, they could’ve at least added stitching on the dash and doors. Also they need to get over black wheels. I thought about selling my Shelby GT/SC to get one, but in the end I’m getting some mods done instead, new stripes, interior, watts link, brakes, etc. As much as I love this car I cant confidently say at this price it would be my car of choice. I’ll enjoy what I have a few more years and see what happens.
  3. Amazing Car, it looks like they nailed everything performance wise and I absolutely LOVE the looks. I still can not get over the fact the Interior is basically the same as a $35K Mustang. The fake plastic Stitching has to go, I can not think of another car at this price point that has an interior this cheap. If you are going to charge $10K for stripes have an option for a FULL leather Interior. People that spend this much want a much nicer interior. Also PLEASE tell me they plan to offer something other then Black Wheels. Other then those 2 small gripes (Interior isn't too small, but I would deal with it) I love this car!!!!
  4. I absolutely love the GT350, if not for this oil issue I would probably have one in my Garage. I instead decided to spice up the Shelby GT/SC with a New Interior, Watts Link, Ford Racing Control Arms, GT500 take off Brembo's, and New Stripes. I do not have the time to deal with a car with issues, hopefully Ford figures this out.
  5. Incredible Car, I love the color!!! GLWS!!!
  6. Couldn’t agree more. The new 911-S just got Best Drivers Car (GT350 came in 2nd and got awesome reviews) and the Corvette beat out the 911 in a recent review. They said it wasn’t better then the 911, but when you bring price into consideration it just wins, that’s how close it is to the 911. The 911 is the most Admired sports Car ever, that is a Huge compliment. Too bad the GT500 and C8 weren’t available for the testing, Best Drivers Car in my opinion is a much better test then the typical track testing, 99.9% of buyers don’t track their cars. Real world driving is what matters.
  7. Every dealer on the Corvette Forum is selling orders for MSRP. Corvette Forums has many dealers that are sponsors that help out Members with anything and everything Corvette related.
  8. Agreed the Corvette at MSRP, which you can get all day long, makes the GT500 at MSRP a very tough sell. The Corvette is clearly better in every way. That said I’m a Mustang guy, but if I were buying today my loyalty would be changing to GM and the Corvette. Even at MSRP to MSRP I would buy the Vette. The fact they are putting these crazy ADM’s will drive many away. I’ll be laughing at all the GT500’s that sit on lots for months with ADM’s. They tried to get ADM’s for the Bullitt so they sat for over a year, they tried with the 50th, they also sat. After the short window of people that just have to have it first they will sit just like those did. Honestly if I were buying today, because I have 3 kids, I would probably get the Redeye, it’s a much better value and a beast of a car!!!
  9. Thank you so much that is great to hear on the Vinyl, I think I’m going to do it. My car is garage kept and is only averaging 2000 miles per year so I would think it would last a long time. I would also probably add a coating to it if that helped. It’s almost going to be a New Car when it’s complete!!!
  10. I took my car to Tasca this past week, they are now 90 minutes away, but my experiences with them have always been Top Notch and they have done every single mod on my car so I’m keeping it that way, at least the mods they are capable of doing will be done by them. Don from Tasca has been amazing, I can’t say enough about his communication and top notch work!!! So I had them install my Shelby Watts Link I’ve had in the garage for years, my take-off excellent condition GT500 Brembo’s, and they upgraded my ball joints/control arms to FRPP since my car failed inspection last year due to my existing ones having “Play” in them. They also looked everything over and said the car was in outstanding shape, that was good to hear!! Now my car is getting a Shelby GT/SC interior installed, I bought the interior from Swedeman and I can’t wait to get it complete. I’ve always wanted to upgrade the interior, when Gary Disney stopped making them I thought that day would never come, I didn’t want a Katzkin that is currently offered, I wanted the ones offered when I bought my car. Well Swede May have had the last one ever made and I was lucky enough to buy it from him!!! It should be done at some point next week. Next I will get the stripes done, I’m debating getting 3M vinyl stickers for $1000 or holding off to get them painted. I always thought I would just get them painted, but if the 3M Vinyl will last 8-10 years I’m actually fine with vinyl, my Stock ones looked good until a few years ago so I would think the much better 3M quality stripes should work. I will keep you all updated and post pictures when all is done, it might be a few weeks due to my travel and coordinating it all to get completed. Have a great night everyone!!!
  11. Personally I’m glad Shelby moved on, everyone knows it took years to sell under 200 of the last Hertz, that tells me moving on probably should’ve happened earlier. Good Riddance!!! At work I rent cars often, I haven’t rented from Hertz in many years, they are the worst of all the options I’ve used. Partner with National and make a nice Green Special Edition!!!
  12. I had the Mach 1000 and upgraded to the Full Kicker System, the difference is significant. Much cleaner sound, the Mach was loud, but not that clean. This is both, I highly recommend it!!!
  13. Congratulations on the New Shelby GT, I am typically a spoiler guy, but the Shelby GT should be Naked!!!
  14. I love those wheels too, almost bought them instead of my CS69’s. I do recall either those or the CS66 had less “Big Brake” room then the CS69, but I think you are right, I’m pretty sure that was the 18”. I don’t know for sure unfortunately, but just wanted to say I hope you get them, they are beautiful rims!!!
