You want to see the all the MODS that can be done to a SHELBY GT500 ... ??

WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL if your anywhere near Orlando Florida ...

The Florida SHELBY GT500 association is having its second annual get together in Orlando

We had over 21 SHELBYGT500's in every color and every possible mod available attend. You have never seen more dressed up engine compartments ... or the prettiest painted on stripes of vert than u will see at this car show.

Justin of VMP tuning will be there with his bad ass RED coupe with the FRPP TVS blower on it. We will have a Kenny Bell Stage III car there as well. Justin is also bringing his portable dyno machine !!

If you ever thought " Hmmmmm what would this mod look like on my car" this is must.

We had cars from Atlanta GA come down for last years event and are expecting 50 + cars this year.

THE DATE ...... 02/24/2008

Anyone who needs specific info or plans on attending either PM me or e-mail me at:

[email protected]



Heres the text of what was posted at TEAM SHELBY ... where I spend a lot of time ... and on here but in different places:

*********************


Hey everyone

Last year I held what would be considered the largest GT500 gathering in the state of Florida. We had at one location over 21 SHELBYGT500's and expect over 50 ShelbyGT500's this year.

Were having our 2nd Annual SHELBYGT500 roundup on 02/24/08 in Oveido Florida.

Below is a text of what was sent on stangsunleashed now known as Team Shelby, Those with interest either PM me or e-mail me at:

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Feb 24th !!!




CALLING ALL SHELBY GT500 OWNERS IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA !

FAST FORWARD TO 2008 !!!!

Announcing the second annual Florida SHELBY GT500 roundup to be held on Feb 24th , 2008. This will be our second event ... the first which is part of this post .... and was a HUGE SUCCESS thanks to YOU who attended and thanks too the vendors who donated prizes and gifts:

FoMoCo, VMP tuning, Evolution, SAI and lasty Robert and Sharon for attending !!!!!

More specifics will be forthcoming but it will be held in the same location ( thanks Brad !!! ) along with Justin and VMP tuning and his portable dyno machine.

We are still working on a vendor list for all the free handouts but I expect for this meeting the following vendors to be in full force for this years event:

FoMoCo, VMP Tuning, Evolution, JLT, SAI, Stillen, Shelby Performance Parts, Steeda and others

Last year we had 20 ShelbyGT500's show up and this year we are shooting for over 50 !!!! It ought to be the best turn out any SHELBYGT500 gathering has ever seen. We even had 4 ShelbyGTs show up and they are welcome again !!

We already have 11 cars confirmed ....along with Justins FRPP TVS blower car and a KB car from Tampa !!

I will be either using this old thread and possibly a new thread to keep everyone posted. Last year guests will be PM'd and e-mailed.

This event is not just for Floridians but for everyone. THAT MEANS U PIG

So ... get the date down ... set aside that weekend ... get your car cleaned .... and get your pretty a** down to Orlando !!!!

50 cars will be something to see. Last summer, when 07 organized the plant tours, we had about 15 to 20 and if was an awesome site with us all running down the road together.

QUOTE (stsltd @ Jan 16 2008, 01:19 PM)
So - anybody coming down from the mid-Atlantic states? - Wondering if I feel a road trip coming on? Weather permiting of course - sure sounds like a good time....



Absolutly ...

last year with 20 GT500's and 3-4 SHELBY GT's .... it was a incredible event. Thanks to the people who showed up and thanks to all the vendors are helping out in a big way!!

This year we have 3 times the vendor support...

FoMoCo is sending tons of GT500/ SHELBYGTposters .... tons of hats ... and glasses ... ( glasses ??? ahhh as in eye glasses ??? WAIT ... now i got it ... drinking glasses !!!! ) ... EVO gave us the single largest door prize .... WOW ... THANKS FRED .... Justin has been a HUGE help as always with his dyno machine and his donation which is INCREDIBLE too .... He's also bringing some GT500 parts to show off .... Stillen is sending a really beautiful 4 way afjustable sway bar .. thanks Page .... SHELBY PERFORMANCE is sending lots of neat stuff too ... JLT PERF are sending multiple gift certificates thanks Jay ... and Jared of LETHAL is donating some great stuff as well and will be there in person with his GT500 and a bunch of GT500/SHELBYGT parts !! !!

All in all we are way over $2000 in free give aways for this years event ... So even if your from GA ... or AL .. or further North its worth a 12 hour drive on Saturday the 23rd of Feb ....to be at the show on the 24th of Feb !!!


PS .... are there any GT500 owners on this site in Florida ???

Quick update .... we are now up to 41 confirmed cars and more coming !!!!

The question is not if we hit 50 but how far over 50 to do we get !!!!!

We have cars coming from La, Maryland, NC, GA and of course Florida ...

It also looks like we are going to pick up a few more vendors to support the get together which means more door prizes

We also are doing something different this year .. we are going to have few vendors with trailers and there goodies so we can all GALK ...

COME ONE COME ALL! ! ! !!

To All Attendees


Show will start about 10 am ... 02/24/2008 .. and close down late late afternoon. Its being held in Oviedo Florida ( Orlando )

Sign up will be from 10am to 12pm .... Free hats and posters will be handed out at the sign in desk compliments of FoMoCo. After you sign in we will have wash stations available but since we are having so many cars we will also have directions on the final e-mail ... the locations of do it yourself car washes nearby. After your car is clean, you'll park it and get it ready for the car show.

Justin of VMP tuning will also be set up ready to accept any and all who want there car dynoed and or tuned if time permits. Dynoing a car is quicker than tuning it ... tuning takes time which I am not sure if he will have that luxury ...

We will have food and drinks catered from Sonnys Barbecue so get your appetite in high gear !!

The car show will begin right after lunch ... numerous awards will be given out for different categories. We all vote and the voting will be explained at the Show.

We will close by awarding all the car awards and the free gifts and parts that have been generously donated by the following vendors: bowdown.gif

FoMoCo, Ford Credit, Evolution, VMP Tuning , JLT Perf, Stillen Perf, Lethal Perf, Shelby Perf, Stillen and a new sponser ... Lamotta Perforamce .... out of Longwood .. Thanks Jake !!

This year we will have several of the vendors bringing trailers to display there products at the show ... you will see all the neat stuff that you can put on your SHELBY to make it go and look faster

Also Sharon and Robert of TEAM SHELBY should be there and we are expecting a mystery guest that I cant name but this person is alone worth the trip down.

Through a friend of mine who is also on the forum, he knows Mark Fields of FoMoCo and is asking him to come to our event ! ... He owns a GT500 and has a house on the East Coast of Florida Hell while I am at .. might as well ask Bill and Edsel toooo hysterical2.gif
