Mustang of the Moment

MOTM: 2016 Shelby GT350R, #GR227

This Mustang of the Moment goes to M6G member Ruben (shelby_r) and his 2016 Shelby GT350R Mustang.

We love a good-karma story and frequent readers of Mustang6G will tell you that this GT350R owner earned this, having helped many a forum member with his knowledge and resources while passing along some well-priced deals to prospective owners.

It hasn’t all been a smooth journey for Ruben, however.

Due to personal circumstances he has had his GT350R wrapped and in storage since taking delivery in April of this year — a crime by most standards, if not for the unfortunate life events that made it necessary to keep his stunning Deep Impact Blue GT350R with Black OTT stripes and Electronics Package, locked away for months.

The good news is that Ruben and his family have decided to throw caution to the wind and pulled the R out of storage this past weekend, finally unleashing the beast onto the streets. He wasted no time entering the vehicle in two car shows over the weekend and not surprisingly took home two trophies in the process.
