Did I mention the new stripes came with a new car attached?

Thanks Ted. I’ll miss my 2011 Ingot Silver. That car was really special.

Too damn funny Jim! :ROFLMAO: I saw the “ALL” prefix and thought it was just another of the many that I needed to edit. I got a good laugh out of this one!

Congrats on the new toy! Get it past 100 miles, put it in Track, Drag or Sport mode and stand on the skinny pedal… it will be a shocking experience! Do it on concrete if it’s available nearby. The beast will unleash its full fury!🤟

Will doTim. I hit 100 miles today but as I was in a 30MPH zone near my house so I kept my right foot in check. I’ll head out to a nice, straight section of good road tomorrow and get a little taste. With 760hp I need to learn to walk before I try to run.

Ha, I was curious to see what stripes you added the your 2011. Those are some great new stripes! I’m looking forward to seeing a HE in person. Have fun!

I think you will like the color - it changes slightly with light conditions. Clean and subtle with the stripes giving it some “ pop”

Congratulations on the new car! 👍 Big departure from your older Shelby! I have applied for a patent on pictures of hugging your new car so you may have to pay a patent infringement fine! 😄😄
Thanks Mike. Send me the bill for the fine but it might be awhile. My wallet seems to be quite empty right now and I still need to feed this thirsty beast. By the way, the Shelby GT350 front end is still my favorite looking car.

Funny! I'll bet your wallet looks like an empty closet! Those new GT500's are expensive! I too also feel the GT350 is one of the best-looking Shelbys' of late, albeit I miss the torque of my 2013 GT500 at times. I still think I made the right choice despite what Tim says! 😄

Let us know what you think after some seat time. Congrats!
Will do. I spent the day after picking it up installing the splitter, closeout panel, gurney flap, slip-lo and Jaeger flaps. Drilled the flaps below the groove to be able to use an existing push pin for a more secure mount. Still have the oil separator to do.

I'm with ya, I like the looks of the GT350 more than the GT500s, but then again I really really like one of those undesirables even more, so nobody probably cares what I like.
