#535 of 556 After Market Gas Cap
Dec 16, 2007 (6:22 am)
Why is this forum dead?
Stangsunleashed.com has re-formatted their folder, and it's no longer user friendly, i.e., a hassle to read a message thread.
I discovered that FoMoCo does not offer a locking gas cap for the Mustang. Does anyone know if an after market locking gas cap is available for the new GT500? Thanks.

Hi, I'm new here.
We'd been looking for a Shelby GT500 for nearly a year and I had been lurking on these forums. After basically hiring someone to track one down for us, we bought one the first week of January, and are taking delivery this week. I hope I remember how to drive a stick, or I am relying upon the nice man with the flatbed to drive it into the garage.
I am nervous about getting into color combinations and dealerships because I'm new here, but suffice it to say, my husband got the car of his dreams. He was so out of his mind with excitement, that during the paperwork, he forgot his own social security number. (Fortunately, I know it.)
I have a great husband who gave me a lovely diamond ring 20 years ago. I was so overwhelmed at the time. I saw that same look for the first time last week in my husband's eyes. It is so wonderful to see him so thrilled.
I'm here to learn as much as I can in order to help him enjoy his dream car.

Hi, Sarah: This forum has just about died, but perhaps will rise again now that stangsunleashed appears to be no more. I placed my deposit on a new GT500 in February 2007. I spoke with SVT a couple of days ago to discover my car is built and awaiting detailing. From there it must be scheduled for transport. Since I live in NH and it has been such a wicked winter, the car will of course immediately go in the garage.
Tell us a little more about your acquisition, model year, color and options. Should you have questions, I will try and answer them based on my readings of other forums. Congratulations and Enjoy.

Looks like Sarah flew the coop. I took delivery on my 2008 GT500 about a week ago here in the dead of a NH winter. I managed to get it into the garage without kicking up too much salt and sand.
Back in college days, I owned a '68 GT500. I was the second owner. My only complaint was that it had an AT. It gave me only 12 mpg around town, but gasoline was a lot cheaper back then.
If interested in expanding on this conversation, let's hear from you.

Randy, set-up an album here on your car-space and let us see your new toy. Congrat's on your delivery. You will be very happy with it.
