Hi All. Yes, believe it or not, I sold the Shelby to set me up for my new baby. Been going back and forth on the best course of action to get to where I want to be, having considered all things. Made about $1,800 overall considering a trade in a previous deal. Money has already been transferred and wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy the "flipper" goes. Man I almost can't wait.

I won't let the cat out of the bag yet, but I'm currently working a transaction that I just can't resist. Oh, and you better believe that it a Shelby Cobra GT500 variant. Spitting Fangs!!!!!!! Yes, I'm never satified and you are correct.

Stay Tuned! JJ, I just logged in since yesterday and I'll check the PM.

I don't think that is a Shelby Cobra GT500 variant.I think he is talking about a Super Snake or a Shelby Cobra.

OOOps. Just re-read that. If he was getting the Super Snake, I would think he would just have his GT500 converted. Must be a Cobra.:confused:

He is an energetic fella. That's our "Flipper".

Harley, I seriously thought about that but even (what, about a month ago) when I said I wouldn't, still did. My wife tells me that all the time, "You eat your words." Seems like I do.

I just like being happy and already began to run out of patience. Well, you definitely have one thing right, it's a "COBRA".

Thanks

Ok Flip,here's my best guess if it isn't the SS or the 40th.You must be buying the fastest color(red)and you are going to put a 2.8 or 3.3 supercharger and new shoes to hook up with a new suspension package,of course.

Thanks Fred. I wonder how much money Evo and Kenne put into their cars? Upwards of $30K would you say?

Hmmmmmmm, let me ask you Fred and everyone, if you had a pocket full of money (not bragging) and could go back and do it all over again, what would you guys do?

Thanks

Fastest color (red)?????????????:eek: :eek: :eek: No, just jiving.:D Red is kool. Yet, the latter part of your statement is definitely true, if I decide to go that route. The best thing about it is, you guys know that it won't take me a long time to decide and go with my gut. Last 500 was in and out of the shop in about a week. From what's rattling around upstairs, I'm thinking the new setup will probably take about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks at most. This time next month if I choose the latter, granted Plan A doesn't work out, I plan on being in a monster!

Thanks

Well by reading the last few posts, I would have to say that you are getting another GT500 but this time you are going to make it either twin turbo or maybe a kenne bell with nitrous? just my guess.

Wow, twin-turbo! Elite, now you are gonna have me up all night thinking about this as it never entered my mind. Twin-turbo, is that even doable?

I simply want something different (significantly), but wow - Remotely Possible? Have you ever heard of this combo before? Just asking but I think the Suppy Duppy will remain on. Maybe one more night of tossing and turning!

I heard of someone doing a TT set up but never read in to it. I t might have been on stangsunleashed. If you do it, it would be all custom. Or maybe you could get with one of the big turbo companies go make something. Just and idea.
