Cool Greetings!

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!

Best regards,

Blake

Hey Blake, welcome to the board.

If you enjoyed CMP on the CBR, wait till you try it in the Shelby.. Put the March date on your schedule.
