Hi, my name is Michael, call me "mokey" no that is not monkey misspelled.
I just fell in love with a white with silver stripes 2010 Shelby GT500
And she came home with me to stay!
I have been shopping for a big dually diesel rig to upgrade from my tundra into. I do not tow a single thing and turned the 4x4 on once at the beach..... But then Wednesday the EPA basically forced (in my opinion) h&s performance to voluntarily shut down...this caused all my local diesel shops not to be able to perform the egr/dpf delete on any 2007+ diesel. So out went the reasoning I had behind a diesel dually.
Then I happened to open my iPad and hit the back button in safari from a truck I was looking at, and for some reason instead of going back to the search it went to this mustangs page. I loved it... That was at 3:30am, at 9:00am I called about it and told them to hold it, I have had a vehicle sell in route to view, showed up at 2:00pm after a hold up at work. I really don't have a favorite color combo on any mustang but this one looked amazing to me, got in it and started it up and went for a drive. 5 years ago I owned a 2007 mustang gt with bolt ons and no tune....this thing instantly made me smile and made the jealous thoughts I always had of gt500s while owning my gt all come back in one big wave of love...
I HAD TO HAVE IT
So after the haggling and leaving and them calling me back, I signed the papers and traded in the tundra for her.
7:00pm and I'm finally done with paper work, cars out of detail and all that is left to do is clean out my tundra. I pop the trunk of the gt500 and there sits a SCT tuner in the package.....wait a second.....I pop the hood, don't ask why I didn't before buying, and it has a SVT CAI and I know that isn't the factory supercharger pulley and I swear that looks like an idler arm, look further factory headers and catalytic converters. Turns out everything is from Lethal Performance; pulley, tune, and magnaflow axle back. I had just filled a shopping cart there after looking at this car the night before, MORE LOVE!!!!!
All I need to do to it now is new rubber and a set of long tube headers, electric cut out valve, highflow catalytic converters an awesome new tune and she is done!
It hasn't sunk in yet, I thought typing this would help...
Sorry for the long post but I had to share this story of a mustang lover who went lost and came back to find love again. Hahahaha
Here's a picture, ill post better ones when I get a chance to take better pictures.
