I guess my VIN is still out there in cyberspace somewhere? My dealer just emailed me to tell me my VIN was not in her latest batch to be pulled for production. She said her rep told her it is still showing 'Material Hold'. I'm about ready to take the cash I have allocated for this car and go to Vegas...the last time I was there the crap tables were good to me. Who knows, maybe I'll end up w/two GT500's...or none. :mad:


Shelbywise don't do it.It will come soon.I will help once it comes.I know the emotions very well.It is worth the wait,trust me on this one.

I feel your pain ShelbyWise. I'm in the same boat. Have patience. It's funny you mention Vegas. I'm going next week. I guess I feel like I have too much money, so I have to go throw some of it away. :D

Shelbywise don't give up yet. I received an e-mail from a dealer I contacted a while back and she asked me if I was still looking for a GT500 because she has a White coupe coming in. She didn't say when or how much but I e-mailed her back and asked those questions. When I hear from her I'll let you know.:)

Thanks everybody...I'm still in...just getting more frusrated by the day. I don't plan on going anywhere, I'm in for the long haul, barring some cataclysmic catastrophe. Its strange, I've ordered other cars before and waited longer to take delivery...the GT500 is all different though. :eek:

hey shelbywise, i was wondering what the top price i should pay over msrp? what do you think? Thanks Ryan
Hi Ryan, Your question is off topic but I'll answer it and perhaps a ADMIN/MOD will move this portion of the thread to it's proper place...Ahh...The $64K question :confused: Both 07 SHELBY & myself are paying $5K over MSRP...and although I can't speak for 07, I'm happy to have been offered that in the SoCal area I live in. There are some visitors to the many GT500 forums who think we deserve a flogging for paying over MSRP...I believe there are MSRP deals still to be had, but you need to be dilligent in your search process via phone and computer...some people can do do this, others cannot. You should get a figure in your head of what YOU are willing to pay for a GT500 irregardless of what you read on these pages. You have to be able to sleep @ night when its all said and done. The fact that you are asking 'how much' over MSRP is too much, tells me that you are willing to pay a premium...only you can put a limit on that premium. GOOD LUCK...:)

To get an '07 Shelby or not to get an '07 Shelby...that is the question. Find your comfort level & then pull the trigger. If it is affordable, how can you pass on a 500HP piece of automobile history. PC

That is a personal thing.I cannot tell another person how they should spend their money.Shelbywise is right we paid $5,000 over MSRP.

Well said ShelbyWise, but I think VNMOUSI summed it up shorter with his quote. "Being middle age crazy... PRICELESS!" Now that describes us all.

I can see it now....I hit the horn only to hear the voice of FogHorn LegHorn.
"Son, ah say Son.....move that jalopy outta the left lane and let the big rooster eat!"

Hey, I rented a 6 banger 'vert last week and the top part of the (inside of) doors were hard, molded plastic. I chalked that up to it being a basic car with (probably no)interior upgrade. I looked at an '06 GT with the interior upgrade today and it had the same thing. I also looked at an '03 Terminator that had a softer material. Do all of the 2005+ cars have the hard plastic on the interiors of the doors? Looks like the same stuff the console is made of. Not too jazzy for a 45K car, but then again I bought it because of performance and exterior faaaar more than the interior.

So...what's the real "poop" <rimshot here> ??

Vnmous1 if you are talking about the door itself it is leather if you are talking about the interior of the car, perimeter around the glass and door it is molded plastic in the Shelby.

Yup...that's what I wanted to know. OK...now, go to your "quiet place" and relax! Dontcha just love Mondays!? I'm not in the same boat as you, but I came in after being gone a week and I can't believe the crap that's piled on my desk! And, of course, everybody needs to see me asap!

As for my Shelby, I'm now officially crossing all fingers and toes in hope that they'll stripe and ship this week.

Thanks for getting back to me on the interior.
