  1. Thanks Steve. I really appreciate the time you took to respond. Happy Holidays to you and your family. Jim

  3. Been off this site for a while; good to be back!!! After searching here and many other venues...anyone know how many were built? I finally bought a 1700 mile all options except NAV. I had to sell my 2008 427 NASCAR 725 HP Super Snake about three years ago, and I can say the 2014 would out run that Snake. The torque is unmatched compared to 2008. Thanks for any leads.
  4. $200.00 OBO. Still in the original box. Never used. $400.00 new. Thanks, Jim

  6. Mr. Shelby was an ultra rare breed in the automotive world. I have never heard a bad word from anyone about him. He was a true gentleman and a very generous person who when he received a heart from a young donor; this began his quest to build his charity foundation. At least he was able to see his fruits of labor with the charity foundation and the Shelby cars that are a rare breed and a treasure to behold. He was instrumental in lobbying with Ford to produce the 2013 650 HP Shelby GT500 to production. I think SAI will remain a viable entity for a while, but without the "man" alive to
  7. Did you get the 800HP option? If so, what do you think of the power and performance?
  8. Had a very slow leak in one of the Snake tires so Roger swapped out the rim and tire; apparently the rim had a flaw. Anyone know if this would be the right FORD TPMS Sensor tool to retrain or reset the tire pressure system? Below is the link to a FOMOCO tool that is advertised for 2008-2011 Fords.. The seller said he had sold several to Mustang GT owners, but he wasn't sure if this tool would be applicable to a Shelby GT500. Thanks for any advice. http://www.ebay.com/...RS:1123&vxp=mtr
  9. Hugh, I respect your freedom of speech, and I don't take your comments with any ill will toward you because they are essentially based on your emotions. This is how you unconsciously overlooked the two points in my thread regarding the Chairman and the two Judges. And from what I glean from your support of the Chairman, you must be a good friend of his. I have met the Chairman about six years ago when he came to my home to look at some very rare cars I owned. Attached is my speaker profile while on Active duty in the Marine Corps. Awards, I am not into this for any awards as
  10. Some of you may have heard about a few comments I and another Shelby forum member made regarding the MCA Ford Nationals in Waldorf (where I live) on the Shelby KR forum. All around it was impressive, but a few things bothered me as well as others who attended and it is our right to say so. I criticized the fact that two Judges who spent less than two minutes on my car and the other Shelby member’s GT500 KR car as well, didn’t know what a KR or Super Snake was. How can you judge a car if you don’t know what it is? And to spend less than two minutes on a car is an insult. Additionally,
  11. Two lady Judges; probably in the mid-40s. The Chairman owns a few rare early model 1960s GT cars. Don't know what the lady Judges own.
  12. You'll get a kick out of this, and wonder what the Chairman of the MCA Grand Nationals in Waldorf, Maryland was smoking when he selected his Judges. I live in Waldorf, and to experience what I did and a fellow forum member, I was embarrassed to say I live in Waldorf and highly disappointed. Over 500 cars were registered for the show. I was showing my 2008 Vista Blue 427 NASCAR Super Snake at the show when a forum member who owns a Silver KR (he drove all the way from Mechanicsville, PA) approached me and asked me if my car had been Judged. I said, not yet. He then told me that when the
