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!

  1. Hey Todd, glad you got a chance to wring your car out. I finally picked mine up about two weeks ago from Payson. Could not be happier. I went to the Pavillions last Friday. Cold but a pretty good turnout. A friend of my brother-in-law came out with his red 07' and there was a vapor vert there as well. I parked next to a black Roush 427R. Maybe we will run into each other there sometime.
  2. A friend of a friend has an experimental Airaid intake on his 07'. He said they were looking for another car to do dyno testing on in exchange for a free intake setup. He also said no tuning required. This is the part that worries me. I have heard horror stories about the KN setup which also claims no tuning required. I know that this guy has driven his car hard on a racetrack and no problems as of yet..... Just wondering what everyone has to say about this offer?
  3. New MT 315/30/18 tires.

    Nice looking setup. Rim width is measured from bead to bead so they look like 10" rims to me. Hope they work out. I assume those tires would work on the stock rims?
  4. A 427 is a large bore short stroke motor. They tach like a small block and it is not uncommon to see 7500 rpm with good compression. They give up low end torque (which is a blessing) for top end pull. If a Corvette that weighs 500 lbs less than a GT500 is a challenge, a Cobra that weighs 1200-1500 less with a 427 is going to provide you with an ass raping. Provided he can modulate tire spin it should not even be a contest. You will be as traction limited as your opponent but the rolling acceleration on a car that light will be much greater. Love to see a vid of the race though. If the Cobra can launch good it will be a short race.
  5. Delivered to my door...

    Congratulations, seems like the dream of finally owning a Shelby is coming true for many here lately. Grabber Orange with the silver stripes is definitely nice. I would put the top stripes on as well. Just my .02. Enjoy it. Mine is 1 week old today and I plan on taking it to a cruise spot this weekend if the weather holds out. Oh the joy of living in the valley of the sun.
  6. Me also. Stock replica wheels as wide as the car will allow without modifications. I would really like to run at least a 315 on them.
  7. Got the call

    I have heard of some people using 4 front GT rims on Mustangs/Shelbys. I am looking to obviously get wider than stock back rims. I really love the look of the BBS wheels more than any available aftermarket rim available for the GT500's. I have not looked under my car to see if there is that much room for a 11.5" wheel in the back. Sorry to hear that you are car rich/seat time poor. I hope that situation rectifies itself soon. I know a guy that has a 2001 Diablo with 2500 miles on it. Spends alot of time sitting....
  8. Got the call

    If you ever find yourself with a bunch of time on your hands, see if the rear wheels off the GT will fit on the Shelby. I would love to put GT wheels on mine but am thinking the rears would need to be narrowed about an inch? I am sure many here would love to see the outcome of that experiment.
  9. Got the call

    Very nice setup. Guess you will be giving the Shelby preference over the GT? Somewhere around 1500rwhp in that picture?
  10. Red with white stripes is the fastest color.

    Enjoy the new car. I know I am enjoying mine. Good to be on the "I have one" side of the fence instead of the "I have one on order" side. Worth the wait.
  11. Picking it up tomorrow

    Thanks. I drove the car to work today for our holiday party. Everyone wanted to check it out. The more I drive it the more I like it. It is gonna be hard to let it sit in the garage most of the time. Just under 160 miles now and can't wait to put more on the odometer.
  12. My car is in!!

    Good for you. As many have stated, you will love it. I picked mine up on Wednesday. Absolutely love it. Doesn't really matter what it cost. Enjoy.
  13. Got the call

    I am so envious of you. Good luck with the Shelby. I am sure you will enjoy it. Just maybe not as much as the GT.
  14. Got the call

    Congratulations on your car. If you don't mind my asking, do you have a pulley on the GT? I have heard they are a monster with a pulley or supercharger swap. Heritage paint is definitely the way to go. Enjoy it.
  15. Picking it up tomorrow

    First try at pictures here so let's see how I do. Awesome drive home. 100 miles of twisty mountain roads. No snow at the dealer and not a cloud in the sky. I did not want to get out of the car after getting home. Better than any day at work for sure.
