rickf73 intro

Hi, newbie here. My name is Rick and I live in Denham Springs, La. When I was a kid, I saw the Shelby GT500 when it was introdused and I have wanted one ever since. Well it took me 40 years but I finally got a chance to get one. My daughter and I stop by the dealer one afternoon a few weeks ago and it was just calling my name.
Also never had a convertible but decided to go for it. I have really enjoyed putting the top down, cruising and listening to the tunes (of course south La. summers are kinda hot during the day). Can’t wait for cooler weather.
Have a steep learning curve on handling this machine. But it should be fun to try.

Haven't taken many pictures yet, have to get busy.

Re: rickf73 intro

I just looked at the pics of your car. If you bought it from Robertson Brothers and it's the one that they said was the owners demo that he had lowered and put the light bar and exhaust on. Than I drove your car.

I went there in Rob's (purevenom) cobra and talked them into letting me test drive it.

I think I took the sales men for the ride of his life. I say that because I made him scream like a little girl at one point.

Yes it is one and the same, hope you enjoyed you ride. I do hope to make it to hooters this sat.

Thanks to everyone for the welcome and yes I used to hate all of you also.

Re: rickf73 intro

it was a fun ride. but being that I pulled up in a 600+rwhp cobra it kind of dulled the experiance.

I will take to slow, want to have it around for many years to come. I have still not tried it without TC on. I have read some to the stories of problems without it. I have to top down all of the time unless I can't, love it.

Re: rickf73 intro

welcome :thumbs2:

congrats on such a badass machine! I certainly hope one day I can get obtain one for my enjoyment. Thank you for actually driving with the top down. I see too many people cruising around in their stangs on a warm, sunny day with the top up

Re: rickf73 intro

I know the traction control in the 05+ is nice but in my year it sucks, I turn it off first thing when I crank up the car unless its raining or something.

I want to drive a gt500 sometime... never got around to it as of yet.

Same here, really enjoyed seeing your ride, Beautiful. Actually has me thinking of buying an older model to get my hands dirty again. Been a while and have a lot of catching up to do.

Re: rickf73 intro

nothing like getting your hands dirty on a brand new car. in fact you won't really get your hands dirty
