  1. If you could buy one of these 3 cars what would you buy and why? A 05 or 06 Ford GT, A 488 Ferrari GTB, or a late model McClaren? Thanks, Stephen
  2. I'm in the process of restoring a 1966 Hertz Shelby Mustang and have a question on how they originally came. It appears to have undercoating from factory in the rear wheel wells. Is this the way they came, an option, or a modification a previous owner made? Also should their be undercoating in the front fender wheels? It appears there was not any in the front wheel wells but the rear wheel wells appear to have undercoating for sound deadening or rust protection from the factory. Any help would be appreciated as I want to get it right. Thanks, Stephen
  3. I use Barrett Jackson who clears through AiG so I don't expect any issues / SVT
  4. This just happened so I haven't even reported it to insurance yet; they were closed. I'm with Barrett Jackson Insurance who uses A This just happened so I haven't been able to report it yet. I'm with Barrett Jackson Insurance and they clear through AIG so I'm not expecting any surprises I tried to call but they were closed for the weekend. ig
  5. I recently rear-ended another car that stopped short and my 66 Hertz could not stop quick enough. Makes me feel better to blame it on the car anyway. I don't think their is any internal damage other then the radiator just mainly took out the bumper the hood and front fascia made out of fiberglas and right front fender. It was a 9 out of 10 car which hurts that I believe was pretty much original but had been restored. I'm going to need it repaired but I want it done with Original date code Shelby parts if possible and I want a 11 out of 10 paint job on it. I live in the Houston, Kingwood,
  6. Thanks for the tip as I did not know about holding it down 5 seconds. I know you already know but it really is an incredible car. From the hood to the side skirts to the Shelby Emblem that lights up on the concrete when you lock it. Maybe thats a feature for all mustangs now but it is trick. Have you taken you car to a show as of yet? I'm curious what the reaction was. With all the body changes the car really doesn't look like a Mustang and when people see it they ask me what it is. Have fun with yours. I'm going to drive it some but plan to keep the mileage down some as I think t
  7. I own 2 2006 GTH's, a 2008 KR and now a 2016 GTH that was never driven but one of the 16 6 speed Hertz Executive Cars that were for the 50th anniversary. I've owned other Shelbys along the way a 2008 I sold Once I saw they were going to keep making them. I also bought a 2014 with the 666hp that I sold to buy a Jaguar F Type. I've tried to hang on to the cars that are holding their values. My latest purchase is the 2016 Shelby Hertz GTH that is one of the 16 manual Shelbys only sold to Executives. It has a little over 100 miles. Looking back the 2006 GTH is special because it wa
  8. I saw this story pop up again. Its been a while since I thought about it. I still own the car and it sits in a showroom I built in my office building. Its got almost 900 miles on it now.......lol. I know for a lot of you thats funny you would say get out there and drive that car. I do drive it 4 or 5 times a year but I'm trying to keep this one nice along with my GTH with 1,800 miles. I have some other cars I can go out and light up the tires with when I get the urge. Thanks for bumpin' up "My KR Story" SVT
  9. I called the dealership and just asked what they were looking for and they told me depending on the car and options 90K to 95K. I told them I'll pass and just wait for something used in a couple of years. Look at what Super Snakes are selling for now with a 1,000 miles. I brand new 2014 Shelby with 662 horse power is $25K less. I'm still in disbelief that Ford made a 662 hp Shelby Mustang. I know they made more then the GT350 and I would still like to have a GT350 but not at $95K. The dealership wants full sticker for the Mustang GT and full sticker for the Shelby Conversion. When I bought my
  10. This is an interesting thread and I believe contains a lot of good information and various opinions that all make sense when taken in the context of the owner of the car. Everyone has their reasons for owning what they own. I have 2 '06 Hertz GTHs, a 2008 KR, and a 2014 GT500. I had a 2008 GT500 and sold it when I bought the KR. The KR is just SPECIAL. I don't know any other way to put it. I love the 2014 but if I had to choose between it and the KR I take the KR. I love the Horsepower of the 2014 and the refinement of the car and would pick it as a daily driver over the KR but the KR
  11. It seems like the '70's all over again. The 2015 doesn't look bad but I think the 2005s to 2014s are more my style. I think from here they will drift further away from that historic Mustang look. Like a lot of people said....."maybe a daily driver someday". For me it would be something I'd buy one of my girls but not for me. SVT
  12. Congrats on the new child on the way........boy or girl the name has to be Shelby......don't you think? SVT
  13. Bump......Its cold outside and just thought I'd bump these pictures up for the GT -H Lovers on the website. After renting this car in Montana I came home and bought one within a couple of weeks and now am hanging on to 4 Shelbys. The GT-H was the rebirth of Shelby and I'm sure glad Ford and Carroll Shelby worked things out for the rest of us. SVT
  14. I had to make the same decision 25 year ago. I started out in Finance but we were in a banking crisis back then so I changed to accounting. You don't want to get a GB degree because you really aren't specializing in anything. I ended up with an accounting degree and have found that with that degree I can get a job basically anywhere: banking, marketing, business manager, financial advisor. I worked 3 years as an accountant and then went to work as a Financial Advisor for the last 20 years. I would stick with Accounting, Finance, or Marketing in that order. Good Luck, SVT
