You may have seen the Red/White/Blue Shelby line up I have posted in the past. Well this R/W/B line up had a different twist.
The HEP guy who provided the "White" did not show up, so the Red & Blue just parked together at a local car show that had over 200 mustangs.
Another white Shelby happened to roll in before the space next to us was taken:

The white Shelby temporary replacement guy was driving a 2018 GT350 as obvious by the rear spoiler and the Chassis label on the dash:

For a 4 year old car I was impressed how clean and original the engine bay was. Most folks who keep and engine bay spotless, they always seem to leave it cleaned and shiner that OEM:

When I spotted the air filter, I asked if it was a new OEM replacement... he indicated it was new, but not a replacement:

I asked for clarification.... "Is this the original air filter?" He replied "yes".
He then later admitted to having to finally need to put fuel in his 2018 Shelby GT350 for the first time since he drove it home from the dealer... apparently his "low fuel" light had been yelling at him with only 20 miles till empty.

His odometer today:

It's a 2018................................................. damn!
This makes me sad as a 2018 GT350 in white isn't anything that rare or special. This won't be worth some exorbitant amount of money in the future and instead it's just sitting around rotting.

My friend and I drove up to Medford Ford for South Jersey Mustang club show. We both came home winners.

Congrats, George! I wish I had known about this event so I could have attended, as I'm not far from there. How did you find out about it? Is it only held in once per year every May, or more often, and if so, when? Any info via PM would be appreciated, and/or I'll contact Medford directly - thanks!

Went to a local get together this morning. About 75 cars showed up. Lots of laughs, really a good group of guys.

Just got my car back from Trent Musser getting my alignment done and various suspension components (springs, sways, camber plates, etc.)

Now I'm waiting on my OP mustang hubs.

I've got my Apex EC-7RS wheels with FP cup 2s mounted and ready to go on. With how much camber I have now, I'm debating swapping my 25mm spacer for a 35mm spacer to get better fitment up front.

Well Trent had it we found that the clutch slave cylinder seems to be leaking all over, which explains where my brake fluid went, so I have a dealer appointment on Tuesday.

Cannot speak more highly of Trent.
I'm taking my GT350 in to Trent on Wednesday for suspension work and a Crick half cage install to get ready for a busy June at HPDE track days--can't wait!

It was time for an oil change. I finally got to use the Oil Udder I bought last year. The udder fits around the filter, and as that's slowly spun loose the oil flows down the sides and through the opening at the end (into an oil pan). Had to go slow, but it was really simple to use and made things a lot less messy than I'm used to.

That seems pretty similar to the product offered by @pilotgore.

A bunch
But pilotgore doesn't have a product that works with the spin on filter. We are still hoping!
True dat. Just got done testing version 2 of our spin on guide and now designing v3. We’ll get there eventually, we just wanna make sure it’s kickass right out of the gate.

I do apologize it’s taking so long, but thanks for holding on to hope!!

Dropped it off at the dealer yesterday. Found the missing brake fluid! It was weeping from the line going to the slave cylinder. Glad its under warranty and hope to hear back from them today.

I've done a ton since having my Gen 2 motor installed a month ago but today I installed a set of SRP Pedals and a vent mounted NGuage.

The pedals are fantastic; definitely worth the money but the only con is the provided hardware. I'm assuming that the hardware is a generic set and not tailored for your vehicle. The included hardware wasn't long enough to mount the dead pedal and I ran into issues when installing the brake/clutch pedals because of the above.

Up next are some Headers, Injectors and a new clutch!

Joined the Colorado Shelby club at Gateway Classic cars and coffee - a great club and a great host. We were the special club today with 23 attending (changes at each event), so Gateway gave $200 to the club and some swag to each member.
