Newbie to forum and 1st time Shelby GT500 owner

Recommended Posts

I recently traded my 2012 GT 5.0 Mustang in on a very lightly used 2010 GT 500 convertible, and I could not be happier. I wasn't looking, but somehow it found me. :)

 

Nice forum here. I look forward to being around quite a bit.

Welcome to the Shelby ownership World. It's a much bigger step than most people realize, you'll be spoiled. I went from a 2003 Mach 1 to my first Shelby, a 2011. Recently drove a 2013 Boss 302 and felt I was driving a V-6, just made me realize how much more I love my Shelby. See you tracked the 5.0, let us know how you do with the 'vert. :cool:

Thanks for the welcome!

 

Yes I definitely plan on tracking the vert, but I really want a roll bar first.Anyone have any suggestions?

 

I race at Lebanon Valley and on Wednesday nights, they run a class called Street Stick. I'll probably run that mostly.

Jim,

 

Congrats on your Shelby purchase, that's a pretty nice upgrade :)

 

If you haven't already be sure to register your Shelby in the Shelby American Registry. See my signature line below for the Registry link.

Thanks for the welcome, and I am thoroughly enjoying the ride. Too much in fact. If I keep it up, the car will be worn out in a year or two. Not that I drive it too hard or too fast, I just drive it too much. I wish winter would get here and the snows would fly so it can hibernate til Spring. :)

Good luck trying to wear it out in a year or two. I've had mine for 6 years and it still runs perfect!

 

Ps. It's not a garage queen
