I’m not going to lie and admit I felt like I was gambling when I pulled the trigger on the Shelby. Having never driven one before yet alone any car with a DCT, I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into. What sold me was the countless reviews I read and watched where everyone praised it. Now that I have both, I feel I can make a fair assessment by saying the manual is still more fun but the DCT closes the gap even tighter, especially when compared to a normal slush box type transmission. I was very close to trading my Z06 in for the Shelby last year but couldn’t bring myself to do it. I was determined to own both so I kept putting money in my piggy bank until I was able to make it happen. Each are amazing cars and I’m very lucky and fortunate to own both.
You know when I went to look at my new Shelby I had second thoughts too but after I drove it I realized it was what I always wanted and never got its an awesome car i really enjoy it! If i`m having a somewhat bad day I go out for a blast in my and it really makes me feel better.

I don't have a problem with EVs. If people like them, and they work for their needs, more power to them.
I have a problem with the government forcing them on us. In the same way I have a problem with the government forcing anything on us.

My daily driver is a Bolt EV. With all the Govt $, it was a free 36 month lease. 😁

Another interesting fact, Mach EV production outpaced mustang ICE production. Crazy indeed
Bolt EV FTW 🤘 I absolutely love mine. Best feeling ever driving past the gas stations 😎

I've driven hybrids and an EV since 2004. I'm ready to burn lots of gas. The Shelby uses premium and the truck I just bought does too. #BurnMoreGas
