The red really jumps on a black car! I'm actually surprised that my car is the first Shelby I have actually seen (other than a Ford promo pic in '09) with that combo.

I'll put up more pics after I pick it up on Monday, when the car is absolutely sparkling!

Got her home today... I couldn't help but take a little extra romp though...

Here are some pics taken when I was picking her up! She was on the lift getting the chin spoiler back on when I first got there...

beautiful man. i love how ford kept it easy to work on and straight forward with that engine. not like other car companies that turn it, flip it, etc.

next update from tal will be a vid of him laying down some rubber followed by pics of a trip to the tire shop for some new tires, lol

I didn't buy the car to do burnouts. We all know it can do so without even trying to. I plan on leaving the traction control on for a while at first as I get to know her tendencies. Then put the traction into sport mode for a bit before I let her loose.

Of course... we need the weather to turn back in the right direction first. Yesterday it rained all day... today it's snow... barely into the 30's the rest of the week, so it may be 2 weeks before I get to drive her again at this rate...

In the mean time, I'm framing the window sticker to hang in the garage next to the Shelby. Wink

I haven't driven it since I got her home Monday night. She's a fair weather driver.. since yesterday it was pouring rain, and today it's snowing... didn't even consider taking her out of the garage.

Looks like it will clear up, but with highs barely hitting 30 for the rest of the week. She'll likely stay parked for now.

Nice ride Talon! I have yet to see one like it around the St Louis area and the weather has been nice. I bought my 911 2 1/2 years ago and I'm still stoked everyday I turn the key.
No matter how bad the day you can jump in her and just go and you forget about all the bs for a while. It's a good feeling. So is taking an exit ramp at 110mph!

Ok two thing's I noticed, turn your flag around in the garage, the blue field should be on the left side. Also, two fords but a goodwrench Dale flag?
