10-year's of SGT ownership

Recommended Posts

I'm about 23K, Dennis did a great job!!!

 

I love it every time I drive it, the sound is intoxicating, sometimes I think about selling and after one drive that thought gets erased quickly.

Yeah Dennis and his guys do great work, I too had though about selling a couple years back, but all it takes is a quick blast down the road and I realize I will own this car until i'm to old to drive it!

Every time I see the dash plaque and Carroll's signature on the dash , it always feels as special as the day I brought her home, you cannot drive this car and not have a smile from ear to ear.

Its been an incredible decade for the Shelby brand, starting with the GT-H's, and all of the products from both Ford and SAI.

Yesterday we celebrated 10 years since my Shelby winked at me from the corner of Fort Mill Ford's showroom. It was love at first site. After a short test drive I was sold. I've enjoyed 24,770 miles so far, all with a big grin on my face. While I don't post here as much as I once did, I do check in often and it's great to see some of the same folks here that welcomed me when I first joined. I'd always heard " you never sell a Shelby" so when the 90 day trial period was up on the Sirius radio I inquired about a Lifetime contract. I believe the price I negotiated was $240. What a deal!

 

Funny story, last week I drove it down to Charlotte, about 120 miles, for an appointment with my financial advisor. During our conversation he asked me how long I'd been retired. After a little thinking I told him I was pretty sure it was 14 years, either 2003 or 2004. One of those "senior moments". Anyway, he later asked what I drove down and I told him the Shelby. He'd seen it several years before and wanted to walk out and see it. He's a bit of a car guy. Walking up to it, he asked me how long I'd had it. I immediately said, "in 6 days, it'll be 10 years". His responce was, "you had to think about how long you've been retired but you know to the day when you bought the Shelby. Strange"! I just laughed. Enjoy your Shelby's, I know I am.

Cool story and I could see myself doing the same thing. Also been retired since 2007 or 2006.

Did you do the Bilstein's? Just curious if it made a difference. I might drop mine off at Tasca next year for my yearly maintenance, I have several small issues I could have them address like my Fuel Guage not working and I can have them install my Watts Link.

Mine is locked into a garage for three weeks because of a alley repave and I missed the Santa Monica Shelby show otherwise #182 woulda been there. Bought it new at Mills Ford Anaheim as my first new car purchase at 39 years old have since gotten a Boss302 as a companion. The Shelby is still a better looking car and gets the garage while the boss is my daily driver. SGT is still all orig with the addition of the standard shelby adict stuff. Stripe are oem and look great and warped scoop adds character. One of the better decision was to get a set of 20 in Carroll Shelby wheels, the CS69 limited editions (for the shows). Track the car when I can and always push it to threshold. Absolutely the coolest mustang I've had and it brought me back to people when I was wrapped up in myself. Thanks to Robert also for getting me to use the internet when team shelby was stangs unleashed.

I didn't get the Bilsteins done yet, I am still having the issue with the miss fire code coming up on the car, I thought Dennis had fixed it but it came back after about 300 miles. The shocks are still on my list of things to do, but i probably wont get them on until the new year.

I realized today that I missed my SGTs 10th birthday... Picked her up from my local Ford dealer on November 18, 2007.

 

Had the car out for a ride today and still love driving it after 10 years! Just turned 10k on the odometer so its just getting broken in... Still need to replace the stripes otherwise she looks as good as the day I drove off the dealers lot!

 

Heres to many more happy miles in our SGTs!

In June of 2007 I walked into the showroom of the local Ford dealer and saw a White SGT that l fell in love with. Service at this dealer was non existent and the salesman was arrogant to say the least.I remember asking him particulars on the car he could not answer. Looking at the price showed a $10,000 mark up.That was enough to make me walk and buy a new GMC truck.Never forgot sitting in the Shelby,owned 2 Mustang GT`s after that but could not get the Shelby out of my mind.On Jan. 8 2015 we purchased a Black SGT from the original owner with 382 miles on it.We will have owned 4126 3 yrs this Jan. but feel like we have owned our Shelby since the beginning. 5500 miles since we bought her. The wife and l are really looking forward to Carlisle this year and getting to know a lot of Team Shelby members.

It's funny to think that 10+ yrs ago every Shelby event you would attend had the "original" Shelby's there, all old stuff. Much different today, now you rarely see the old stuff out. On our Snakes at the Lake drive every year to Tahoe I am usually the only old GT350 on the drive of 80 cars, but I sure miss the AC on the trip home. haha

I’ve got a boss also along with the SGT. I bought a new SGT back in 2007 off the showroom floor. After 10 years I decided to get back in a 07 SGT . Found this one a few  months ago #SGT0016 with less then 3500 miles  and all stock. Cool history also.10F5D49A-2D00-4F27-AF1D-82E44C19BFD0.thumb.jpeg.f42fe912a0ee4d06ca1be903c4955d24.jpeg

Anyone else still here that ordered their Shelby versus buying off the showroom floor?  The wait was excruciating! I ordered mine on Feb 13th and picked it up when it arrived on June 11th.  I was in touch with the car carrier all the way from Vegas.

Ten years later and it's still a stunning looking car. Looking at that picture I think I know what your feelings were as it was being unloaded. Thanks for sharing Jeff.

Agreed I am a huge fan of the 60’s mustangs, but from 1971 until now looks wise I think from the factory the Shelby GT is at the top.

 

I get tired of cars, turn them every 2 years or so, this is the longest I’ve ever owned a car by far.

 

Funny sometimes I think about all the money I have into it, reality is if I turned it every 2-3 years I would’ve lost a ton more on depreciation of other cars so all those mods actually saved me money ?.  Lol ?

Yep ....I also like the SGT and SGT-H Shelby’s the best after 11+ years.  The current one just doesn’t look right with the stripes. Maybe it’s the euro look or something .....just not sure. But I think ford got the new design just right. Both generations are my favorite. Ford did some minor adjustments to the 18 and really nailed it.

I purchased mine in Dec 2016 off of Ebay from a dealer in California and it was delivered to my house in Missouri directly from Vegas in May 2017. The dealership never even took delivery of the car.

This post inspired me to go back and look at my original purchase, it was December 27, 2007.  My patience helped, although it was marked with an ADM I was able to get X-Plan and 0% for 60 months (At the time interest rates were much higher and the 0% was a much better deal then the Cash back offer).  It had 23 miles on it.

 

Mine was completed on 9/28/07 so I am assuming it was one of the last ones.  It never had the original Grill behind the "Shelby GT" grill like most I have seen so I am assuming as time went on they fixed some mistakes.  No Scoop issues either at this point.

Hi- new here. I bought a black SGT 7 years ago. Shaker 1000, leather, some add ons. 13000 m now and garage kept. Looks like new. I live in florida. Car shows and club. Treated like a baby. Too much worry about dents and so on so i just hate leaving it alone in parking lots!
