Sally is incredible
By sallysbuddy on


2014 Ford Shelby GT500 2dr Coupe (5.8L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Only two weeks old and 500 miles on the clock, but this animal is incredible.
Getting on the freeway from the dealership after I picked it up,I wanted play with it's roadholding, so got on it.....just a little...on a very tight 360 degree entrance ramp.
Hugged the inside edge and looked at the speedo at the merge point of the freeway:

113 MPH and it was hardly breathing!
The G-forces are unbelievable.
People stare at it, give me thumbs up and smile.
I've had performance cars my whole life (including a Jack Roush built Lincoln MK VII with a 5 speed manual tranny and GT40 motor), but none of 'em hold a candle tot his.
I need to re-read the complete owner's at least 3 more times.

Now into her third year, Sally continues to be an incredible performer. I widened the rear wheels to 11" so that I now have Nitto 555 G2 tires, size 315R35/20. A 1/2" spacer is needed to move them outward so the rims don't hit the inner wheel well/suspension parts. Also added were BMR lower rear control arms and Panhard rod to keep the axle in place with those tires. The wheels are the largest that can be put on the GT500.

This car makes me smile.
