Just got home from Mid America Shelby Meet. Put over 1k miles on mine in 6 days. Alot of miles in the rain and it thunder stormed most of Sat and Sun, so it got a bath quite a few times :-)

 

Rolled over 49k on the way home!

Sheri,

 

Looks like you'll be starting a new thread for rolling 50,000 in the near future. Glad your enjoying it!

We just turned 87,000 on our 40th Anniversary..which unfortunately has been driven in everything, including snow when we've commuted to and from the Shelby Vegas Bashes we have attended..All but one, plus been to Pomona CA for the 50th Anniversary Cobra Reunion, Carlisle PA, Hermann MO Shelbyfest every year but one and Tulsa OK Shelby Events. We LOVE our Shelby and will continue to take this to any and all events we can! :happy feet: :happy feet:

Great!!! Keep on driving it too. I remember reading this post back in 08 and never added. My early 07 GT500 had 74K miles when I sold it to a local customer, I still work on it, and it now has 132K...still runs, and drives like it did on day 1, if not better...miles are not the issue, it is proper maintenance....it is WORSE to let ANY car sit with out proper maintenance!!

 

Might I recommend a product called Pig Spit? You can buy it online. I have been using it for years on undersides, wheel wells, and engine boxes. I have cars that are 10+ years old, with over 200K miles that look better than most 5K mile cars...amazing...nothing sticks to it, it doesn't attract dirt, and works better than anything else I have ever used.

Thanks for the Reply and advice Alex! I actually have been using this product called "pig Spit" for over 4 years now It makes the Engine cleaner and easier to keep clean also, never used on undercarriage but I will certainly give it a try! I buy this from the Local Harley Dealership...It's $15. per can, I love the fact it doesn't leave a film or residue after it dries also!!
