    Cool had an interesting experience with a 2010 shelby

    so i was on my way to a youth group meeting (with the tops off, windows down) and was stopped at a red. coming up behind me i see the scarylooking front end of a brand new red and black shelby,

    we were both first at the light, and i figured i had to look over because i didnt want to look like a pus, this guy is staring straight ahead, both hands on the wheel, fists clenched tight.

    i waved, no response, i pulled up more, no response, i revved, guess what? yeah, nothing.

    i saw his eyes shift over at my hood once or twice but he was trying hard not to twist his neck and make eye contact with me, the light changed and i left him at the intersection, he wasnt racing because if he was i would've been crushed, i'm just amazed at how our cars retain their look if they are taken care of and are mistaken by common folk for new 'vettes/challengers/camaros/etc.

    Not so sure you would've crushed him, I just read an article about those cars and they run mid 12s @ 113 or so. And they also cost about 50K. I'd like to put about $15,000 in our engines and see how they respond...alright, only $12,000 in the motor and $3,000 for a new differential.

    Weird how he never looked at you.

    OP said that he would have been crushed not the shelby.

    You still might have crushed him..

    What Shelby was it exactly? If it was just a Shelby GT, you'd have taken him out no problem.

    The Shelby GT is basically just a GT with stripes and a CAI. My boss had an '08, I wanted to race him so bad but he wouldn't take it to the track.

    Obviously I stand corrected!

    The article I read was with the supercharged ~510 HP 5.4 32v engine. The Ford engineers were upset that at the track the car would only run a 12.9 @ 113 MPH, even the Ford driver couldn't get the car faster. They were saying it should've been .5 faster.

    If the driver sucks a little that car is slow I have an A4 and I beat one by a bit. If he drove better and not spin at launch he would get me.

    they come with crap tires that can't hook, one magazine managed to get mid 12's @ 118-119. motortrend put it on the dyno and got 511 to the wheels...that would suggest much more than the claimed 550 on the motor. I have seen the new zr1's dyno from 525-560

    Or maybe the dude in the shelby could care care less about a 11 yr old car or the driver in it.Just as another perspective.

    Damn. That would be a harsh response, eh?

    I guess you have a point, but myself, and sounds like you too maybe, would not have an attitude like that. I like most all muscle/pony cars. As long as it's a V8 and RWD, it's golden.

    Your right I like all pony/muscle cars.I just hate posts like these.No one knows what the dude was thinking.Usually I dont respond to these types of post,but for some reason this one struck me wrong.

    this was an upper model shelby, it actually had the slanted aggressive front and rear fascia, not the stock gt one with a snake in the grill,

    idk you can talk smack, i'm just saying what happened(or didn't happen), a typical ford driver was either too scared to look over, too proud of his grossly over priced 12 second car to look over, or was blind and deaf. he was an older guy so maybe all three. just saying.

    Stereotyping is your friend.

    Does the typical F-body owner have a mullet?

    or didn't give a shit about your car since he knows he will rank in more puss and complements in general.
