    So basically OP, you got banned from a website, and came over here to pitch your bitch and stir the pot as well? You ask a question you know the answer too. You can ask that same question to almost any tuner car (i.e. Saleen, Roush, SMS, etc.). I've never been a huge fan of the aftermarket car manufacturers, but its up to the people and how they spend their money period. Although I now own one of the cars I used to dislike as well, its a tuned package that i was too lazy to piece together myself and bought in one shot. To each their own.

    So what you're saying is you can't afford the car because you're broke. And because you can't afford the car, you're going to hate on the car and people that have them. :dw:

    The Shelby GT is an awesome car that is very well sorted car (better sorted than 90% of the people attempting to do it themselves) AND they are a Shelby.

    slooooow down guys.... im just saying this car isnt worth the money shelby stole from you.. ryan say what you want but its still a (gt) homeboy.. ac427 i can afford it, but why? ill buy a gt and put a suspension in it and still have 15k in my pocket.. im not picking on the guys who have them, my whole thread, maybe should of been said differently, so i appolgize if you guys are taking it wrongly.. i just get a little mad at a guy who is basicly doing nothing for that car and charging you guys so so so so much more then its never ever gonna be worth someday or anyday period. the least he could of done was put some power under that hood for ya.. its guys like yourselfs jumping on a overly priced car and giving him his way.. maybe if nobody wasted there money and said what im saying now to mr shelby then, he would of maybe made it worth the money instead..it suks in my mind to know he has so much money yet didnt help you guys out a little bit..now for the most part of those sales the guys that bought them are using them and probably alot more then they should be.. if they were to just park it and sit on it , well then padra you prob would have something to brag about, but there are not to many ppl that can go spend 38k on a shelby "gt" and just park it.. so my whole thing is why waste your monies.. capeach? the average 07/08 gt out there is about anywhere from 10k to 15k with good milage, you could put everything he put in the gt for probably 5k.. do the math spiderman. nah instead they go get this car for 25k up to 35k and then go add motorwork, say another 10k..add a load of miles on it and what ever else and now they just got a 15k mustang gt when they decide to let it go, cause good ole carrol just robbed them.. well now spidy hows that math? yeah should of bought the gt500 your saying now lol... anyway it is what it is.. sry if i pissed any of you guys or gals off, my apologies, im just really heated at what that name did to the working man.. it is a nice car, but at the sametime it is just a what? gt. believe me im not the only person that feels this way, i happen to know someone very dear close to me that works for mr.cs.. its been said and he has had millions of calls to them about how over priced that car was.. why do you think he made another one, called the gt350? and guess what it has a superchager at least! but its still alot of lute lol. but hey at least your getting a little bit of everything.. also search some other forums you will see this conversation alot.. peace out.....

    Wait........we're supposed to slow down when you're the one that came in here talking shit! :dw:

    First off, Shelby did NOT steal ANY money from ANYBODY!! These people saw a car they liked and they made an investment in it. You sound like a 17 year old that can't afford more than a high mileage New Edge with a bad motor. :rollseyes I've dealt with plenty of haters like you when they announced the SHELBY GT500 back in 2005 so I have lots of experience doing this.

    If I were you I'd refrain from calling Moderators "Homeboy" so I'll let Ryan handle this one! ;-)


    What you'll have is a GT that somebody bolted some mods onto. Don't expect to ever get your 'mod' money back because you never will. :read: It won't be a Shelby GT and there's a 90% chance it couldn't keep up with a Shelby GT on a race track!

    Here's where your inner Einstein starts to show!!! ;-)

    Taking it wrongly?!!?!? :shrug: How else could this be taken?!?!?!! :dw:

    Doing nothing?!?!?! Seriously?!?! Shelby's used racing shoes have accomplished more than you have!


    The rest is just ramblings of an internet troll and I'm not even going to address this crap.

    Because some people enjoy the car and the history behind the name. Now having the privilege of registering your car into the Shelby Registrar automatically puts your name into the history books. I envy any and all Shelby owners so I salute you all.

    If and when you ever mature, and I'd like to emphasize the word IF, we MAY allow you to come back and play with the big kids again after your temp ban.

    Oh, and I suggest you read the rules if you want to return after your vacation.

    Have a nice vacation! :kaboom:

    Homeboy is actually quite weak, but whatever.
    I'll be the first one to tell you my car is built upon a plain jane GT. As I stated, I'm not a huge fan of 'tuner' cars and I would never buy one new because of some of the crazy prices (IMO) on them. Hence why I bought mine used at 50% of its original sticker price. However, if someone that has money burning a hole in their pocket and want to pay a 100% ADM on some new car, or drop their coin on an over priced Shelby GT...have at it. I used to have a hard on against it like yourself, but the older I get, and the more financially successful I become, i see the value in them as I get lazier too the older I get.

    Well back in the 60's shelby had the cars and modded them put his name on them and the rest is history, now when he did the Shelby GT he got them and modded them and sold them as Shelby's. The Shelby GT is more of a true Shelby than the GT500, sorry GT500 owners not trying to start anything, But the SGT at least goes to SAI in Vegas and got converted. Therefore it would be more of a Shelby than just the name. I like the look of the SGT but wasn't going to put out the extra cash and markup for it at the time. The Orange and the Vista Blue coupe are sexy. The SGT was available with a S/C on it. You had to order the car with it, I think that was 08 and Shelby would install and it was warrantied also if I remember correctly. I think they were to test the market for the GT350, and they got a great response. If someone chooses to pay the money to buy the car like the SGT from the lot, so be it...it is their money and maybe they don't have the knowledge or abilities to mod a regular GT. If it upsets you that they wasted their money, your worrying about the wrong things. There are a hundred "Tuner" S197 versions out there, and all of them were priced similar depending on total options. Nobody is bitching about Steeda or Saleen or Roush....Just my opinion.
