If you don’t know by now, I love cars, especially fast, well built cars.  I’ve driven shoebox drag cars, circle track modifieds, mini-indies, and go carts. In the garage I have a 1986 Iroc Z-28 and a 2000 Camaro SS with an LS1 engine. They’re both daily drivers. After all what fun is it having cars like these if you don’t drive them? So you ask ,with two BowTies in the garage, what the heck are you doing talking about Fords? I like cars, some good friends of mine drive Mustangs, and there’s big car show coming up this weekend at Bitterroot Motors. On the Friday edition of the Craig & Al Morning Show we’ll also introduce you to some of the hottest cars that will be at the show. Be listening right around 7AM.

Also check out the video of this new specially built Shelby 1000 Mustang. It’s a beautiful car.

Carroll Shelby and his team created the Shelby 1000 by starting with a 2012 Ford Shelby GT500 and kicking its handling, horsepower and braking to the performance edge.

The Shelby 1000 will be offered in both a street and a Shelby 1000 S/C “off-road” track version. The street legal, pump gas version dyno’s out at approximately 950 HP, while the track oriented S/C edition is rated at over 1,100 HP.

A limited production of Shelby 1000s will be built, each numbered and documented. The post-title street package for the Shelby 1000 starts at $149,995 and the track S/C version starts at $154,995, not including the base GT500. A completed Shelby 1000 is expected to be approximately $200,000.
