Man that is sweet. Did you get to play around with the interior a bit, or was it a quick thing?

Hey John, all you did was ask? :bang: Why didn't I think of that!? :bang:

WTG! Great pictures. I have a question for you, you said the guy's name was Tom.
I'm trying to id the guy in my pictures from the show for Brad since he gave TMS a plug to me and a few others that I overheard. Check this link and see if the guy in the pictures with the yellow dot on his shoulder is "Tom". If it is cool then atleast we have a name and if you happen to have a shot of him post it too. Thanks

i got to put my head inside the shelby cobra concept car a while ago... they wouldnt let anyone sit in it . (not the shelby gt500, the concept with the 605hp v10 or whever, the roadster). Can you believe it had no cupholders?!? (none that i could see) j/k

he said their still debating on price/options/and production #'s....he said it depends on the publics feedbadk. thats why he told me to spread the word,you know make it known how much we want to see this car built.
he gave rough estimate #'s, around 40-45 thou, and somwhere between 8-15 thousand i believe is what he said (based on demand)

way to go John... was the steering wheel thicker than the 05 gt/v6?

and did you notice any difference in the seats?

and how did the dash look in leather?

custom pedals or no?

Plus I heard that it would only be maybe 2-grand more than the 04 cobra.

the leathers seats were very comfortable, the steering wheel was blacked-out as opposed to the gt's aluminum look, the shift know was the same, didnt notice the pedals, the biggest difference i noticed was the guage cluster...the speedo and tach switched positions from the stard mustang, and the numbers werent "retro" very similar to those from a fox bady mutang (i mean the shape and size of the numbers)
i have only sat in a gt once at the local dealership, since then the only other ive sat in was the v6 at the same show so thats about all ive noticed in my ohhhh about 5 mins total be hind a 2005+ mustang lol
