By the way, I see you are in Denton... we are neighbors!
Yes sir. And in the same industry is appears. Although, from the looks of it, we're on opposite sides of the tracks. ;)

Thanks for the car kudos. I wish I could keep her that clean all the time. Hope you're staying busy with all of the crazy going on. A friend of mine drives 73's for Delta and hasn't been in the air much lately.

Welcome Jeff! Nice ride for sure. I’m local to you as well. Tim should keep you in mind for any local activity; stuff like the drive we went on not too long ago that was a blast.

Welcome to the forum! Thanks for introducing yourself. The color is the same for 2021, but the name changed to something like Lucid Red Pearl if I recall correctly.

We encourage everyone to put their first name in their signature to make this place more friendly. Holler if you have any forum issues.

Will do. I guess I must be getting old as I was struggling to edit my signature etc.

Welcome to the forum Chris and thanks for introducing yourself! It’s nice to see the mighty Shelby GT500 lured a Camaro owner... you are going to frigg’n LOVE the car!

There is a good Mustang Club in Rochester. A friend of mine is a member there... he and I did a cruise with them in his 2020 GT500. When you come to the dark side, holler and I’ll hook you up with them.

Holler if you need any forum assistance.

Thanks...Rochester is a great town for Cruise nights...unfortunately not too many this year with Covid but over here in the Webster NY area the Shriner's hold one every Friday night. The Log Cabin holds a nice one as well during the week.

Looking at the Shelby it was easy to lure me away from Chevy....call me stupid but as much as I like the new Vette the Shelby as that "IT" factor for me. Went with the classic Performance Blue with the white Stripes to keep it clean but wow...almost changed my mind for red!

I know the Mustang club is still meeting up there. We just did the meet and cruise to Niagara Falls a couple months ago. We met up with another Mustang club at the falls.

I’m not a Camaro guy, but that’s a sharp looking car. Your GT500 is going to be MUCH faster though... get ready for pure awesomeness!

Welcome to the forum Rob! Thanks for introducing yourself.

Happy hunting for your CFTP! I highly recommend searching outside of California. The prices there are a little nutty.

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:

http://www.fordgt500.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=67

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!:)
Good afternoon fellow Mustang Owners. My name is Cody and I’ve been a Mustang lover and owner since 1990. I bought the 25th Anniversary edition the day I graduated from High School. I love Mustangs and I just bought my Shelby Cobra GT500 3 weeks ago and I’m in LOVE 🥰 Nice talking to everyone and Thanks too Tim for telling me about this forum.

Hello, My name is John and I was born and still live in Alaska. My college wheels back in ‘72 was a mild ‘70 Mach 1. Today I drive my ‘70 Boss 302 on sunny days while I wait for my rapid red/black vinyl stripe GT500 . Vin #3865. I’ll likely leave the car south instead of taking it home. Yet to be determined. I just retired from nearly 40 years of commercial fishing (Seining salmon/Longlining Halibut&BlackCod) and will look forward to my first summer off to travel around the lower 48. I ordered my car through a small dealer in Bellingham, WA and it seems like its been forever...

Welcome to the forum John and congrats on your pending 2020 Shelby! The GT500 and 70 Boss will look good together.
