check inside the glovebox. That's most likely where it is. Congrats on the shelby!

There is no interior trunk release button on 2005-2009 mustangs.
In addition to the remote you also have a key, congrats on a nice car.

Yes there is ... but it's in the trunk. You have to drop the rear seat back, climb through to the trunk area and pull on the "T" handle. I think the handle even glows in the dark.

you can always tie a rope the the "im stuck in the trunk and about to be raped, handle" and run it up to your drivers seat and just give it a tug when you wanna pop the trunk

It's kinda embarassing to admit.....but I don't ever even used the trunk of my Shelby. Not even once.
