Hello everyone. I heard about this group from one of my two wheeled commrades at carolinariders.com who is very involved with SVT Cobra's. After a brief hiatus for a few of years in a Viper GTS, I'm happy to say I'm back in the saddle in my 2009 Shelby GT500. Back in the day I had a 1992 Saleen and a 1993 Limited Edition convertible 5.0 LX and really enjoyed both of those cars for a long time. Finally sold them when I had to move away from Charlotte to Boston (those cars would have never survived up there without getting the crap beat out of them).

Spent a little time in a replica Superformance Shelby Cobra and learned that you can't enjoy a car that you don't spend much time driving so I bought the Viper. Once again, I realized that I was wrong in assuming I would drive the Viper more regularly so I sold that one, too. When it all came down to it, I had to get something that I could really enjoy on a regular basis and would not be too conspicuous so I could use it for work as well. I'm in the insurance business and I doubt seriously anybody wants to by life insurance from some guy that rolls up in a Viper.

This brought me back to my first love; the Mustang.... and specifically the 1966 Shelby GT 350 started my passion for these cars when I was a kid. Once I heard about the Shelby GT500 in the works back in late 2005, I have been waiting for the opportunity to get my hands on one. At long last I finally can say I have a Shelby. Only took 37 years... and I plan to drive the wheels off of it!

Hope to meet you soon!:cheers:

Best regards,
