Brrrrr! Your Shelby looks cold. Close that door and give her a 2nd blanket before she catches cold. :hysterical:

Just hit 5000 miles. 30 miles each way to work doesn't help; neither does living in Dallas; weather is horrible if you want to keep the miles down. No tickets, but not for a lack of trying. Got 4 in the 2000 Taurus since Nov. Go figure

Picked it up mid Jan07, snow and wet weather has kept her in bed. Recent nice weather has allowed me to take it back and forth to work, and finally got it over the "500 mile break in period". Now let the fun (and boost) begin!!

Rec'd car just after past Christmas.

Went from dealership to storage and haven't had it out since.

In Newfoundland we have long winters - lots of snow and worse yet - its the road salt capital of Canada!

Likely won't have it on the road til Fog season is over (June) ;and the pot holes are filled.

Only have 45 KM's on it so far.

I love you guys who have alot of driving miles on your cars. That tells me you are enjoying your car, not just a garage queen. I want to pull the trigger, and get in that club. Only have 98 miles on it, and hate to break 100 miles. Its a problem I need to get over so that I may enjoy my car also. Its cold in the Midwest, so I dont feel to guilty now.

100 km = about 60 miles.

 

6 months of snow since I picked up the car Sept/06.

Doesn't that cold air just mean dense air? better for combustion.. Carroll would be happy if you just drove it. Probably worth as much with a hundred thousand miles.

My beautiful 2007 Shelby GT500 has 11.7 miles on it. I had it delivered to my home in an enclosed semi truck as to protect it from the elements and still sits in all the factory plastic and the supercharger is still in sleeper mode. I would not even allow the dealer to prep it. I love my car and when the cold unpredictible Michigan weather breaks I will enjoy her to her full potential. Well done Ford on engineering and building such an amazing car. Long live the American Muscle Car.

I got my vert in DEC. Two road trips about 800 miles each. And we are going to do another run this spring/summer down through the Big Bend area, so if anyone is interested, it's a great run. Oh the scenery is great, the food is to die for, but there is nothing like cruising the wide open country at 120. :banana piano:

 

My McLaren Mustang averaged less than 7000/yr over it's entire span. Thats with 2 coast to coast runs. Before the Shelby it was usually less than 2K/yr.

Mine arrived Thursday the 19th. It came with 18 miles. I think the workers at the plant were using it to go to McDonalds. It now has 20 miles. Came without a scratch and in mint condition.

Ordered it in Ohio and used Exotic Car Transport to bring it to me. GREAT CAR!!!

I am at around 9500 miles right now. Probably be 18000+ near the end of the year.

 

You're crazy. This car will be worth $100,000 by 2010. You should put it in your garage on blocks in a big ziploc bag.
