Hi, everyone. Mike here from Bay Area. California. Been on the sidelines for over a year on deciding to buy a gt500. Glad I did! It is a 2020 Ford Performance Blue. Still breaking her in. I am a power junkie, so won't be long for full throttle pulls. Pitty us Californians with crappy low octane gas. See attached photo of my car and how I am solving the gas issue. No joke!

Welcome to the forum! I moved your posts and subsequent replies out of Robbie’s personal intro thread to this general intro thread.

New member here. I have been a lurker for several months soaking up information and knowledge from all the great posts. I just recently took possession of a 2021 FP Blue GT 500. It’s been on my wish list since 2007 and finally had the opportunity to make a dream become reality. I live in WA state closer to Portland, OR than Seattle though. My first week with this car has been a constant battle with restraint. Thanks to @Snoopy49 for all the tracking information he provided.

Movie reference “Top Gun” I started training to become a pilot and gradually found I liked aviation maintenance more. As I had kids they started calling me old goose and it stuck.

Are you an aircraft mechanic now and if so, do you work for an airline? I’m one of the guys up front that break the stuff. 😬

I was until 2008. I worked for a startup (Adam Aircraft) out of Denver, CO. We made carbon composite VLJ. All parts with the exception of the engines and avionics were made in house. We were still trying to get aircraft certification on our jet when the Housing bubble collapsed and investment money dried up. After that we moved and I got into the Coin Laundry business in WA & OR. I have been doing that ever since. It’s a unique business with different people, if you can think it I am sure I have seen it and have it on Video.

Hi! Newbie here. My name is Raul Aldrete Jr and I'm from Denver CO. I recently just graduated from CU Boulder this May with a dual emphasis in Finance and Real Estate. I work for at JP Morgan being a mortgage lender for commercial real estate, and I love my job! I am also a proud owner of a 2019 Shelby F-150. I honestly did not know Shelby created trucks until in 2018, and I really enjoyed the design of the Shelby F-150 design. I am so happy you guys have welcomed me into the community and I really enjoy seeing everyone's Shelby mustangs on here. They're are amazing! Anyways thank you for the add and here is some photos of my Shelby. Hope you guys enjoy! Much love 😁
