John from Fredericksburg, VA. Just bought a 2021 Shelby GT500 in February. Drove it out of the showroom with 4 miles on it. Owned Mustangs since 1987. We all bought 2021s and are headed to the track attack in June

New to the site, by no means new to Pony cars. I’m Chris in Phoenix Arizona I’ve owned many Mustangs at least one from every body style. (Yes I had a II at one point but only 1) I have been ordering the S550 GT500 since it’s launch 2 unsuccessful years of “placing orders” only to be bumped for the next guy who paid the extra markup. I finally found my car 2021 Carbonized Metallic Gray with Recaro’s handling package and black stripes! The one I wanted before the 2022 Heritage launched. You’d think the son of a former Shelby employee (my dad mid to late 60’s) could secure a build. After scouring the internet and calling at least 400 Ford dealers I found this new at a dealership only 2.5 hours from home literally in the middle of the desert. Fits beautiful with my Shelby F150. Thanks to Oracle Ford any my awesome sales person Crissa I finally got my GT500!

Welcome new members. This is a great, fun site that has a wealth of information on GT500s from 2007-2014 and 2020+!

Please introduce yourself, tell us where you're from and post some pictures.

Here is an informative thread how to navigate around this forum. It explains things like posting pictures:


There is a nice DIY section that is filled with member's post of work they have done to their rides:

DIY: Do It Yourself

Use the blue button in the upper right to be taken to the latest discussions across all of the sub-forums.

Please remember to use the 'QUOTE' button below a post when you respond, it notifies that member that you have commented on their post, especially if asking a question. You can also send an alert to a member to get their attention by putting an “@“ in front of their screen name.

So come on in, learn, share, have a ton of fun and please no bad attitudes. We've got a more seasoned fun crowd here and we love talking GT500s/Mustangs!:)

Welcome Pat. I had to go and remove all your commercial content posts. It requires vendor status. Let me know if you are interested and I’ll point you in the correct direction.

Well if I need it to participate I guess theres no other choice lol
what is required?
You’ll need to remove your avatar and signature until you are a commercial vendor here. I already removed your avatar, but I see it’s back.

I just registed as a business but it seems at minimum its 49 a month to even have our company logo?
You will need to direct those types of questions at the vendor people. I honestly don’t know. If you want to do commercial posts here though, you will need a vendor status.

Not worth the hassle or the money. Ill stick to facebook groups but thanks for the info!
Okie dokie
How do I delete my account? I dont see any way to do so
No way for you or me to do that. That’s by design. Deleting accounts creates holes in conversations. Your options are to just walk away or I can ban you if you’d like.

Mike Turner, 2022 HE VIN 727, Handling Package and Recaros. USAF Retired, F4 Weapons Systems Officer. I live in the Smoky Mountains just north of the Tail of the Dragon. I've been a SCCA autocrosser since the late 70s. I currently have a 69 Cyclone, FP Z2427 Windsor crate motor with a toploader and Gear Vendors OD. I've enjoyed 8 Vettes and Z06s, 2 Vipers, and a bunch of Mustangs, the last of which was a Deep Impact Blue 2015 GT Premium MT. I'm thinking this HE may be the one I keep ... "Mach 2 aint all it's cracked up to be"

Welcome Mike! Ironically, we have another Mike Turner on the forum @03reptile.

Very cool that you were an F4 WSO! I grew up with F4s flying over head. That distinctive howl is ingrained in my head. It’s probably what led me to flying in the Air Force as well.

Good luck on the Heritage Edition!

It was truly an honor to fly the Phantom. Thanks for the welcome!

Hello group. I'm John, a new (to me) 2009 GT500 convertible owner here from Long Island NY. I've been lurking around this site for a while and it's a great wealth of information. Picked this honey up from the second owner in VA with 18k on the clock. She's at the Dyno guy as we speak getting the CAI, pulley and tune. Sold a 04 Terminator Vert (to a friend) that I had for 14 years. Sad to see her go but it was time for a change. Looking forward to learning from the many experts in this group. I was a Ford parts guy in a former life and a Ford owner for life. Just wanted to introduce myself to the group and share a few pictures. Thanks,
