  1. Anybody????? I was the original owner of a 2007 SGT White/Gray M6. I sold it and am looking to sell the book. Offers?
  2. I tried this in the 4 sale section but didn't get a reply. I have a new Shelby GT book for sale. It has Carroll Shelby's actual signature along with the signature card. I'm asking less than what I paid for it a few years back, $695. I'll try here before FleaBay. You can reply or PM. Thanks, John
  3. I'm the original owner of my 2007 Shelby GT. Those of you that were around then remember that Shelby offered tons of accessories for the then new Shelby GT/GTH. One of those that I bought were Shelby GT wheel caps. As you can see, they just had text without any snake. I think I like the Berg snake version better, but this is what Shelby offered. Just as an FYI:
  4. Not to hijack, but which Scat Pack model are you going with? I'm looking at the T/A Plus. The Go Green is my favorite color. Good luck whichever you get. I'd be interested in your thoughts driving the Challenger vs. the SGT. Besides it being heavier and about 100 more hp.
  5. Oh. Okay. Thanks. Where does it get placed on the airbag cover? Is there a certain spot for the emblem? Or, are people placing them wherever it looks good?
  6. Feed back is that I love them. The car handles the same, but without the harshness of the original shock/strut ride. I'm the original owner and my car is still my DD. Yes, after 10 years and 50k plus miles. So, ride harshness (or lack of) is important to me. The Bilsteins removed most of that teeth chattering whenever I'd go over railroad tracks, etc. I also had a 2004 Mach 1 which was my previous daily driver. I traded it in for the Shelby. I tried the Tokico 5 way adjustables on that, but still had the harshness, even in the softest setting. So, I installed the Bilsteins and loved them ever since. I know the KYB's are less expensive, but I've never tried them. I figure for something that affects the ride characteristics, I wanted the best gas shocks. Hope that helps.
  7. Sorry in advance for this dumb question. I'm the original owner of my 07 SGT. I have the Berg Shelby GT Steering Wheel and Faux Gas Cap decals. I have the Shelby GT wheel centers from Shelby which I bought when the car was new. But, where does the airbag Shelby GT emblem go? Does anyone have a pic? A description? Thanks in advance.
  8. My 10th is in September. Started life as a DD and there she stayed until last October. Original scoop, redone stripes. 55k miles. New job, commute traffic, car pool lanes, all added up to a Ford Fusion Energi. Much better gas miles, get to drive in the car pool lanes when it's just me in the car, etc. Longest time I've had a car. We need someone to produce a 10 year ownership sticker or something we can place on our cars. Remember the CSM#'s? Maybe something similar. I have no ability, otherwise I'd make them. Anybody?
  9. This 2007 SC/GT sold for $70k at the Sliver Auction in Arizona recently. Of course, it wasn't the average SC/GT. The results aren't posted on the Auction site, yet. They say it takes about a week to add those. However, I saw this from Autoweek's coverage. "...Silver Auctions' top sale, a 2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT/SC. A little off the beaten path, and with a catalog traditionally filled with less expensive cars (plus substantially lower sell-through rates) than the other Arizona sales, Silver Auctions managed to stay more or less on course in 2017; its $3.44 million in sales were down from 2016’s $3.8 million, but average sale price was more or less unchanged. Top lots included a 2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT/SC ($70,200), ..."

  10. Shelby recently announced the new Shelby GTE. You can build one on their website. It looks a lot like the ShelbyGT, which apparently has been discontinued. Does anyone know why the switch to the GTE and what the E stand for?
  11. I bought one but haven't installed it yet. I read on another forum that it's useless with the 'Bamatune. Has anyone else tried it with a 'Bama tune on their SGT?
  12. I got the Michelin Super Sports in the stock size. They're summer tires. My car's a DD, but man do they GRIP!!. An M coupe (Z3 hard top) was trying to lose my on the twistiies. I kept poking my nose in on the inside like I was going to pass him. LOL I would think, ah-oh, this curve is it. But, the car was on rails. Not even a squeal!! Pissed him off and the grip scared the $hit out of me.
  13. Still interested in the ShelbyGT book. What are you asking for it? jaydub mach1

  14. Sorry to hear your leaving us. Is it too soon to ask if you have a copy of the Shelby GT book for sale? Thanks and good luck!!
  15. Really?? Are they mentioned anywhere in the literature? I bought mine new in San Rafael, CA. 15 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge. But it didn't have them in the trunk. If my stealership was still in business, I'd go back and ask. Thanks for the info.
  16. Correct. NorCal edition cars did not come with "extra rear deck stripes" as part of the package. It sounds like maybe the particular car happened to have them.
  17. Has anyone tried a sprint booster lately? I have a 'bama tune and thought it would take care of the "throttle lag" that these address Anybody try one of these after a tune (besides the standard SGT one)? https://www.sprintboosterusa.com/
  18. Me, too. I bought one and it looks great. 100% satisfied. It looks factory installed, just like what they did on the Bullett models.
  19. I bought my 07 SGT new and it's been my DD since day 1. I liked the looks of the lowered springs, but wanted a "better" ride. I replaced the originals with Bilsteins, and have loved the ride ever since. It's perfect for its life as a DD, but still handles very well. In 2004, I bought a new Mach1. It too was my daily driver. I put lowering springs and 5 way adjustable Tokico struts/shocks on it. The ride always seemed a did harsh, regardless of what position I turned the adjustment to. I put Bilsteins on that car, and really liked the ride. So for both cars, the Bilsteins offered a firm, but not harsh ride. MY 2 cents. Good luck.
  20. It depends upon what you're looking for in the set of struts/shocks. Do you want adjustability, etc? Mine is a DD with no intentions of taking the car to a track day. I put on Bilsteins. They take the hard edge off the normally rough ride of the Ford racing ones that came with our cars, without giving up any handling characteristics. That's just from seat of the pants. On my old 2004 Mach1 I tried the adjustable Tokico's and they were a PITA. I replaced those with Bilsteins and much better.
  21. It's all about giving the customers more choices. If you want the SC then fine. If not, that's fine, too.
  22. Just curious, mind you. Why did you buy a strut tower brace, when it comes standard on the ShelbyGT? Is yours missing?
  23. Motorcraft Full Synthetic 5w-20 FRPP oil filter DD with 45k miles. Most miles around town.
  24. Bought mine new in San Rafael, CA: 10 minutes from San Francisco. And I've had it smogged at a smog station every few years with no problem. There is a Shelby sticker under the hood that describes the smog system, etc. Let me know if you want a pic of the sticker, just in case you want to make sure the car you're thinking about has one like it. Good luck,
