Well after 3 months of waiting the '14 GT500 has arrived in town. Here are a few pics from the basement at the dealership. Plan to pick it up later in the week and bring my '69 GT500 vert. The dealership wants to get some good pix of the 45 years of separation. I will post more pix when I get it...
Lots of Raptor owners here on the forum....Anyone care to comment on the "real world" fuel mileage and towing ability. I'm thinking of switching sides here and picking up a 2013 screw. I've been a life long fan of GM pickups (I've purchased close to a hundred of them over the years for my business...
You can beat on them but don't try and jump them 100 feet in front of your buddies!
Who does that? Who actually thinks it's going to land and drive away??
Just bought an F150, my friend owns a dealership here in SD and told me to check out this 5 video series of Ford Engineers pounding on this thing. 420 ft/lbs out of the box, pretty fun:
No, not the GT but;
We are restoring a Gt-350 and need some metal panels. I am looking for recommendations on where to find quality replacement parts.
We need quarter panel,inner wheel well, some floor pans.
Thanks for the help!
The "little museum in Boulder" got a great gift. A very significant GT350 - the supercharged prototype, SFM6S051, was donated to the museum.
I found out about it today because a friend mentioned to me about something else at the museum, but this is a much more significant event.
I own one of each and am so blown away by the Shelby I am thinking that I may need to do some work on the SS. What do you guys think?
Before my Shelby showed up I thought my SS was really good. I have been unhappy working with Shelby and will never have them do anything to another vehicle, but...
Someone just sent me this. Is this for real?

While at my local freindly Ford dealer yesterday, I came across a new 2014 Shelby GT500 on the showroom floor. Black, w/black stripes, all options except the glass roof. Dealer will take MSRP. If interested send me a PM and I will be happy to send you his contact info.
Raptor at Nurburgring.
Haven't seen the corners taken that way before. :biggrin
My 2008 GT500 is rather crude but I really love it. I just finished installing a new supercharger, upper and lower pulleys, throttle body, MAF housing, injectors, upgraded fuel pump, headers and widened stock wheels with 305/35R18 Nitto NT555RII extreme track tires. I will have the final dyno tune...
I can't add much more than DBK said in his thread. This is the best one by far, and is significantly improved over my 2010 SuperSnake. I can report that it takes 35mph sweepers easily at twice the speed, with little to no body roll while eating up potholes and expansion joints. I love the longer...
Was at the Ford Dealer today and he happened to have both a Spanking new Shelby and a Boss 302 sitting side by side! The GT 500 was already sold out of state and awaiting shipping. The Boss was available. So let's hear what eveyone thinks the differences are in terms of street drivin' fun. I've...
Rednecks and money don't mix! Wonder if they will try to blame Ford and say the ad's say it can do it!
So I have a question for the Shelby experts here. We were at the Gooding auction and watched the Ferrari 250 California hammer at $7.5m. Obviously there was a huge sigh after that happened. Then the next car came up which was this beautiful GT 500. All of a sudden the hammer came down and the...
