Nice ride...though I don't like the GT500 badging when it's a GT. :thumbdwn:

+1, I agree
Beautiful Ride. I believe the seats are GT500 seats. Not sure how the front clip in GT500 style will match up with the hood.

A suggestion about the badging, if I may. They remove easily and perhaps have a Custom Tribute Style set made for her. Then, your ride will be unique to the creation that she is. :thumbsup:

Thanks, I have thought of having them air brushed on, but I like it the way it is. With the exception of the Front bumper, hood and color if it were parked somewhere you could not tell it is not a true shelby without popping the hood. the previous owner went throught the trouble of replacing the entire interior with factory shelby Parts, including the gauge cluster, e-brake handle, dash pad, shifter boot, seats (front and rear) Door sill plates..Everything! I still need to put some of the parts on and take that silly dash gauge pod mount out.
The front bumper will match up, as we fitted one today to check, so that will be put on after painting is complete

Philly you know me, I don't much care what some folks have to say about our vechiles. WE bought it because we liked it, and I'll finish modding it to go out and run some mid 10's with it.

It will have it's first track outing this weekend.


About the wreck of the other yellow car, Someone ran a red light and Kathy Hit them Head on. The front end was pretty mashed up. Kathy got a nice ride to the hospital for her knee, and some cuts and bruises on her cheast and hands from the airbag, but other than that she was fine. A Little shaken and kinda scared to drive some now, but she'll get over it and get back to driving her new car.



On a side note, Give me a call when ya get a chance.

No Brembos....:p

Still a clean car Joey, no doubt about that. Can't wait to hear how you run it at the track. :thumbsup:
