I Gave up on waiting for my 2011 5.0

I went ot my dealer and found this little sweetheart and could not resist. What do you think they where both the same money what one would you have picked?

2011 5.0 Blk on Blk GT Pro pack, 3.73, GT scoop/spoiler, glass roof, Brembo brakes, HID's, every option available except Nav and a shaker 1000.

Or

NEW 2010 Shelby GT500 White with grabber Blue stripes, HID,s. The only other options available on the Shelby was the shaker 1000 this one has the 500.

Pics of both attached...

These are the only 3 pics I have of my new baby. I think I made the right choice taking the Shelby at that price who could resist? I will take more pics once its home this friday...

What do you think did I make the right choice? Or should i have waited?

GT500 - no brainer to me! Think it will hold it's value better, got more power right off the get-go. Want more, little pulley change and re-tune. Think they were only going to build 2000 of them for 2010, makes them rarer yet. You will learn to respect the power!

Wow, that would never happen in the U.S. Yes, you can get a 2010 GT500 for $45K, but I've never seen a 5.0 that expensive, not even close. The only "loaded" one I saw was $38K with NAV and the whole works.
