    Wow, is right! I want one! And they're right... those stupid alternate triptronic shift paddles is a useless gimmick and nothing like having the control of a real manual 5 speed transmission.

    Or a 6 speed. Some day maybe I'll be able to afford a winter car and a summer car. When that day comes, I would love the idea that I could put myself in that driver's seat.

    My only thing..he put down the name of Carroll Shelby... Blasphemy.. Other than that. It'll be interesting to see how these engines hold up..because there are so many "awesome drivers" out there...that will bypass this rev limiter..and let's see the end result...it seems that the engine pulls really hard @8200..I kinda think it'll pull itself into a thrown rod..not saying that's a bad thing(pulling like that) I'm just thinking there will be a lot of em that get damaged by the people who can possibly afford to own a car they can't drive.

    The heritage or the gt350 as I understand it..is it was a rental car..people would rent them and rod the piss out of em..obviously they were going for something a little similar.. But not the same..still ..I'm all for checking one out..

    Sign me up, but as much as Carroll Shelby did in the past, he's a legend, I understand his, the MC's, frustration, he was a bit rude, with using the name so long after Carroll passing, it's definitely Marketing, unless there's another Shelby named Carroll working on the project.

    I'm sure if you pay Ford enough, anyone can have a "Shelby" something.
