Nice Shelby! Welcome to the forum.

You probably want to check out the New Hampshire Mustang Club at www.NHMustangClub.com I'm sure you would receive a warm welcome there as well. They do cruise nights every Saturday as well. Hope to see you around this summer!

Hey thanks,....I had it installed October 2012 by Tasca's Shelby Mod Shop in Cranston RI.....It was dyno'd at 483hp and 432ft-lbs. of torque....I purchased it 3 years ago from a guy in PA. sitting in a heated garage covered up with 100 miles on it for $30,000 (I believe he paid $42,000 for it and was all stock) I've dumped about $20,000 into it......I also was able too get a signed VAC for it before Carroll passed on....As far as I know it may be the only one that has been re-stripped with matte black stripes by Tasca's Shelby Mod Shop.....I have all documents and is registered in the registry with SC/Black Matte Stripes...I cant wait too get out n meet some of you great folks.....:burnout:

Very nice!! I've driven a couple Shelby GT's, and enjoyed the feel of them as an overall solution...they felt very grounded & hunkered down to me!!:thumbsup:

Sounds like the pictures in the profile don't do the car justice, with regards to the re-stripped with matte black stripes. Would love to see a pic of the front 3/4 with the stripes over the top!
Curious...Are you still running the stock 3.31:1 gears now?

Thanks for posting the recent pics...looks killer. I especially like the rear valance area.

Oops...With regards to gears, I had forgotten that Shelby chose to replace the entire rearend on these.


Sheby replaces full rearend vs. gears - read more: http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/coupes/112_0704_2007_ford_shelby_gt/viewall.html#ixzz2TH5CZkKy
