Sweet ride.....

That would be a sweet ride.....I heard Saleen is putting out his version soon (may already be out in the US) I think it has 2 - 3 different levels of mods, depending on how much cash you have. The base was around 325HP and the high end one was 400-420 I think.

i love the new shelby, i like it even better than the new saleen. And the new roush is pretty sweet too. I wish I made enough money to buy one of the new shelbys!

someone needs to tell him to make a shelby redline or ss....he said on an interview he was interested in the new found domestic 4 banger market.. so i think if i couldnt afford the new shelby car i could at least get the parts, if he got involved it would almost be like the good old days of the muscle car era which i unfortunately missed

I think that car is badass. I'm not really a Mustang person, but I would like to have it. I'd even take an 04 Cobra.

Personally, I hate Ford. I find it kind of funny that Ford has Shelby and Saleen beef up the Mustang for them. Why? Can't they do it on their own? I don't consider the Shelby or the Saleen Mustangs Fords and that is the only reason I will ever like the GT500/350, because they weren't Fords. Why such bad blood with Ford? Let's chalk it up to past experiences with less than functional Fords. Ford = Fix Or Repair Daily and that's pretty much what we did. And no beef w/ Ford owners, just Fords.

Ever heard of the SVT Cobra? thats ford..also this new shelby has his name and approval and he worked on the project..but svt is still behind it all. Thats why its the Shelby Mustang Cobra.

So I take it you prefer a Camaro? Guess who had a big part in the 4th gen Camaro SS, SLP performance.

the new mustangs are ugly but the GT500 is one that I would drive.....looks so much better than a GT

The only thing i dislike is the foglights on the GT500. The are round in the bumper like traditional svt cobras but it would look so much better in the grilles like the regular GT's. Besides that was a shelby trademark in the 60's, round foglights in the grille.If i had one id prolly throw on a GT bumper and put the foglights where they go.
