Hey everyone, I'm Rich.
Just got a 2016 track pack from a dealer a couple weeks ago. First car I ever bought from any dealership, usually buy private party. Got pretty lucky getting approved and living on Maui, you don't see them for sale often. Got to say this things a BEAST!! Ive built and raced few cars, Shelby\Ford did a great job!! Love it.

Hers my two babies. The 68,I saved it rotting for about a decade in someone's backyard.

Thanks, my 68 is the later year that came with a 302. Rebuilt, running about 350ish hp. Never could sell it since all the work was done by me :)

Yea been watching the prices go up and one finally came in at a dealership a friend works at. Naturally I had to see it. Im gong to keep it simple , Res delete, fp springs etc. Top speed limit here is 55 on two roads so really no point on engine mods
