    Well, got off the phone right now with SVT and the fella I spoke to said there will be NO production Shelby GT500 at the L.A. Auto Show. :cuss: Only at the Detroit show. That certainly is a buzz kill for me.

    BTW: When the person answered the phone he said "Ford Performance" not SVT anymore :shrug:

    Those are some good pics.....but it looks essentially the same as last year. :shrug: Crap, I don't know if I'm gonna go :bored:


    I guess we'll have to wait for the boys over in Detroit to post up some pics...

    Seeing those pictures from the LA show, I'm not so disappointed in the SD show. LOL

    The guy I spoke to said he didn't know if it would be the show or production model.He seemed to be well informed about the car.

    I guess we'll find out for sure on Monday. I'm sure someone local will post about it and/or the Challenger if it's there. :beer:

    I went to the L.A. auto show on Friday. The Shelby GT500 wasnt there neither was the Challenger or the Camaro. I might go back this week to see if any of those cars show up. :shrug:

    Damn....I was hoping they'd have a coupe. I guess I'll have to check out that boat of a convertible :poke:

    Saw the GT500 near Union Station today. So it should be there. It was a red Conv and the driver was a real tight ass. White older male in a suite and it was real shiny.
