Default Former 2010 GT500 Shelby Owner

Just sold my 2010 GT500 Shelby and purchased a 2010 Platinum Graphite Sport/Touring Model with Nav and front and rear mats. I had a hard time parting with the Shelby, but I needed to slow things down some before I lose my license then the job. I have a great county job and need my CDL to keep it. My Shelby GT500 is a great car with tons of power 11.95 @ 120mph stock, but every time I drove it, the sound of the exhaust always temped me to exceed the speed limit. I wanted something that has great styling like the Z but not as much power, no offense on the power. I sure hope my new Z treats me as good as my Shelby did, I had zero problems except a lead foot. Looking forward to having some great times in my new car.

Yeah I'm thinking you haven't given up a whole lot there. Welcome to the club you'll enjoy the corners a bit more in the Z too!
