Still have my '08 Bullitt & '09 KR. Bought each new, end of the year in '08 and '09. No intentions of parting with either. :)

Good luck finding the right car; it'll be worth the search. Don't be scared of a 4.6 that's been supercharged, though. Not all are abused; my Bullitt isn't, and may eventually get a blower. The stock...

Not just a badging thing, but I agree that they offered little which couldn't be done to a standard GT by the average enthusiast. The nicest thing about the Shelby GT was that they are "real"...

If the car's in good shape and hasn't been wrecked (at all), then it sounds like a good deal, to me. Any idea who "professionally installed" the supercharger? If it was done at Shelby, making the car...

When I was a mechanic (years ago), the best manual was nearly always the factory one, followed by the Bentley manuals. Haynes was OK; better than Chilton and Clymer.

The 4.6 has a reputation for long life. Many of the police issue Crown Vics are sold off when near 100K miles, and see another 100K+, as taxis. Regular oil changes are about all they need.

I'd rock that lime as well. That green with a light brown interior would be classy.
Not everybody needs OSHA safety yellow (though chicks and bees often dig it). ;)

First question(s): Are these original tires from '08? Does the car get driven often?

Car that sit tend to have flat spots on the tires, and the problem only gets worse as the tires get older....

OP, enjoy the Camry. I also own a Toyota, and it's been super tough and reliable.

I have the Hurst Billet + in my Bullitt. It would have been considered good in the '60s or '70s.

If you want a new shifter, look into both MGW, and the Barton!

Lots more engine performance stuff around for the 4.6 V8, than the new V6. There's also something to be said for having a Mustang that sounds like it's got a V8 under the hood.

I'd suspect that someone at State Farm wrote it down wrong. I'd drive the car to them, and get an adjuster to come out and inspect the car and the VIN. They shouldn't be calling a V6 car a GT.

Since this thread has returned from the dead, here's a real black KR. The front splitter is not the same as SS, BTW.
