    Welcome PecosBill

    We have a new member that Jim sent me his email and I will post it here.

    On Aug 30th I purchased a 2016 GT 350 (Oxford white with blue racing strip just like the original). I got a "great deal" according to car gurus (4700 miles for $49,000). I spent this past summer reviewing my options; my decision was made when Rocky @ Redwood Ford in Ukiah, CA started up his 2018 Cobra in the showroom for me. I am so happy with my purchase (I ended up buying from Carmax)! Not only do I like the sound I like the power and grip (I understand the brakes are great, I just haven't had much need for the Brembo/hybrids, thankfully). My appreciation for the current Shelby variant has only grown as I come to understand what a truly unique car that I own: 1) One of a kind engine (biggest FPC, only US made FPC); 2) Exclusive to GT 350 models; 3) Legendary name. Sometimes during commercials I just go out to admire the car and count my blessings!

    I true car guy.

    I on the other hand drive such a mundane car now,

    that when I step outside to admire it,

    I beat a hasty retreat back indoors to watch commercials.
