Anyone who wants a car that will turn heads and for a price that wows any competitor, GT500 is the car for you. This is my 2nd mustang and let me tell you anyone who says this car sucks or isn't worth the money, probably never drove one before and is full of you know what. Take my advice and drive one before you listen to anyone elses opinion.
Good Ol' American Muscle
Some folks are so quick to whine about things, (especially a certain someone crying about wanting a Japanese car on EVERY Mustang page, newsflash: you can trade in & get that atrocity you want& let someone who will appreciate the ingenuity that went into the car you hate) but I can find no flaws, only love for this restrained monster. One tap on the accelerator of a GT500KR & you leave all others in your dust. Knowing that it is made of pure steel (not recycled steel & plastic)& a genius engine design (all hail Carroll Shelby!)makes me feel all warm & fuzzy & above all: SAFE! The quality of the components that make up this car are all top of the line. Even the "nominal" Mustangs have an incredible safety rating, streamline looks & the "giddy-uppiness" performance that have been lacking since the mid-1970's. The pricing for these cars is very good & well worth every penny. Even with its performance, it is far from being a gas guzzler & the mileage per gallon is phenomenal. The adjustable seats with lumbar support are heavenly & make long distance driving that much easier. If you are a Ford lover, like myself, & have been waiting to spoil yourself with a car to show off, look no further. The only drawback would be for the very tall & well, nicely put, hefty types, as the seats are made to provide support to a less, uh, rounded type. If you are less than 6'6" & weigh under 300lbs., this car is a perfect fit & super fast. The trunk space is also a sweet surprise too. Of course you will always find people who will find fault in anything & for that, we should thank them, as we can get their cars for a much better cost. (I personally want to thank the idiot who had special ordered mine with all top of the line features & had after market work done on the stripes to make them a bit further apart & then had it reposessed, as I was able to buy mine for practically a song & dance.) Call your local Ford dealer to see what gems they have hiding on the lot.
You cant beat it for the price

How could anyone not enjoy this car? Fast and fun to drive. Looks and sounds great. Shelby and Ford hit a home run on this one.
Review of 2008 Ford Shelby GT500
I wasted so much money for a car that can't even beat a 30,000 dollar stock Rx-8 plus my interior is the cheapest thing I ever saw.
