Some people just don't know cars. My brother thought a viper we saw at acme was a corvette. It's painful when people don't pay attention.

Yeah the girl at the car wash though mine was a 4 or a 6....she had no idea they even still made a V8 Mustang. Needless to say she was blown away. Just clueless, it's kind of sad the next generation doesn't seem to know much about cars, or care...

I do have a GT500 and while I was pumping gas at Sam's Club this guy asked me how old it was. I said it is two months old - it's the 2013 Shelby (this all happened last October). Well that just threw him into a state of confusion over the 2013 bit because it was still 2012. I'm thinking "Seriously?". I had to carefully explain to him that manufacturers release their next years models ahead of time. When I left he still had a bewildered deer in headlights look!

Mine hasn't been mistaken between models, but at the taco bell drive thru I was asked if mine was the new 2013 charger.

Ford is one of the few that do it this early and they only do it with their Mustang really.

That said, I had the same experience. I was at a gas station filling up and some guy asked if my car was a Shelby or something. I was like, "No it's just a normal Mustang." He then asked if he could take a picture, lol.

Remember guys... '13s have the GT500 profiled hood and grill openings. People who knew of the '10-12s but aren't into cars see the same profile.

Haha, that's classic. That sounds like a situation my grandfather would be put in.... he'd come back to me later and say hey is this guy telling the truth?!

Someone recently mistook my GT for a GT500, too. Even more recently, my boss thought Mustangs were FWD.... Another person thought my car was 5-speed; it's six lol

I also remember the first day I took the Shelby to work to show it off. My boss's mom heard me drive away with some "spirited" throttle and when I came back she looked at me in disgust and disdainfully said "Is that a diesel?" LOL!!

I'm a 17 year old and I have a profound interest in cars and can name most 1990 and up cars. Today I was told by a 9th grader that my car was a Shelby. Nope it's a six

It sucks when you are into cars but your parents aren't as enthusiastic, cause then they might not let you even get one that you want!

Haha You're certainly more lenient than me. I only got the "five speed" thing once. Most of the time, people say to me, "Automatic?"

I'm always surprised when someone knows what my Bullitt is. Usually the older crowd.
