Drove a 2007 Shelby
« on: April 29, 2007, 09:28:35 PM »
Ok everyone I got to site in my first Shelby and then the owner gave me the keys so I took my 13 old son and my Clubs VP and we took this Shelby with less then 400 mile on it for a ride.

I think my son said it best and I quote
" This is so freaking awsome "

and it was I knew they had power and all but you have to drive them to understand how well done it all is in this package.

I wish everyone a chance to drive one.

You are a lucky man but it seems your wife has been luckier as the black one looks like a Shelby GT500 and the one you had a more modest Shelby GT. :-D
I doubt you tested the limits of the performance abilities of the cars but what is your opinion on the differences between a regular Mustang and a Shelby on noise, comfort and handling?

Im going to say that the GT 500 had alot more power.  They sounded about the same and the comfort was the same.

Handling Im not sure I'm going to say same but the Shelby GT did come from the Veges plant owned by Mr Shelby

The Shelby GT was bought for about 45,000
the GT 500 was bought for 55,000

I still want the 500

You are so lucky man. Driving a 2007 Shelby. I want the GT500 too. How I wish I can drive it too. Did you ask your wife how fast the GT500?

I looked at a new Shelby GT 500 that was in the parking lot of a restaurant we ate at.  They are a beautiful car.

As I recall, Ford has a web site that will tell you where all the convertibles are, including color and accessories.  I found it once and used it to find an Excursion that I eventually purchased.  By the way, good luck on finding your GT-500, mine is one of the most fun cars I have ever driven.  Ford did a great job putting this one together.  Long live SVT.

Nice stable there fjt226. You must really enjoy Mustangs, and have the means to support your enjoyment.

Actually that's not all of them.  There are a couple of 95's, one coupe and one vert, and a 97 GT as well.  As far as the rest, I have a very understanding wife and a lot of parking spots.  My insurance agent says one more and I get a toaster!!!  The least he could do as I am sending his kids through college.

Re: 2007 Shelby Vin Numbers
« Reply #15 on: December 03, 2010, 08:20:24 PM »
I was looking at a Mustang Shelby GT 350 today at a dealer in AZ. Looks good, but I want to make sure it's a real Shelby not a clone. Is there a specfic series or format for the VIN number used on 2007 Mustang Shelby GT ?
