Hello All. FNG from NC here. I am in the Advance/Winston-Salem area. I just purchased my 2008 GT500 today that has 28k on the clock. Car is in excellent shape in and out. I plan on daily driving this one until winter arrives. Just wanted to say hello and thanks ahead of time for any guidance you all may have. Not new to Mustangs or cars in general, but my first Shelby.

Howdy folks. Well, the short story, I have a 2019 Mustang GT, and love it. However, I got the itch last year to put an order in for a GT500, and of course I am hoping for the CFT version. At this point, patience is a virtue.

Do you know if your dealer has a CFTP allocation?

Roger that, I think I got the signature fixed, thanks for the welcome. The dealership claims they have a golden ticket....we’ll see. I will feel fortunate being able to get “a” GT500 by year’s end. Nice forum you all got here.

That’s a Falcon 2000LX that I’ve been driving since 2010. We have a Legacy 350, and a CJ3.

Hey guys, just joined the GT500 club as I ordered a 2020 solid orange car. Purchased it at MSRP. Coming from a 2018 Dodge Demon. Should be interesting....

Welcome to the forum! Congrats on landing a 2020 GT500 at MSRP! 🤟

Are you keeping or selling the Demon?

Hello Michael here from southwestern VA i purchased my 07 gt500 which is a stripe delete performance white car with a 2.6 pulley, jlt 123, twin 65 cj tbody, offroad hpipe and borla stingers and it was dyno tuned by pro dyno and put down 550 horses through 4.10 gears. Car has an rst twin disc and mgw shifter so alot of the beginner essential mods have been done (with mostly the same parts i would have choosen which is why this particular car was ideal. I have had trouble pulling up my original window sticker or any build info. I want to find out if it is a factory stripe delete car. I beleive it may be but i want to know for sure. Anyone on here that could help with that? Id appreciate it! Long time lurker here now a member. Car came with black 20 inch rovos but i recently replaced them with a mostly street going drag setup...forgestar f14 drag pack 17x7 up front with 235/55/17 tires and 17x10.5 rearwith 305/45/17 et street rs. Gunmetal which looks sick with the performance white paint imo. I also added the body color mirror covers as well as a white mgw ball shift prob. That is it for the mods i have added so far but i eventually wanna go 13-14 blower, long tubes, 10% lower (has stock 07 balancer still) and get retuned by lund i love the ngauge and i love their tuning. Near term mods include vmp heat exchanger and a 1 piece ds. Love this car

Hey everybody! I've been reading this forum for quite some time now, but I finally decided to join. Jeff's the name and speed is the game. Well, rapid acceleration up to the posted speed limit is really the game. I just received my first speeding ticket in the Shelby on 7/22/2020. And the worst part about it is I wasn't even horsing around. I just got caught in a small town speed trap. :rolleyes:

Anyway, I uploaded my first tune last week and am starting to look at enhancements to the horse-stang, so I expect to have a few questions along the way. Looking forward to meeting/interacting with you!
