My nerves are killing me as I wait for the dealer to deliver the new DWB 6 speed to my house. I haven't seen it yet. Dealer is also an old friend and relative so I am not worried about the car, but man I wish he was here already. More details to come.

Sorry guys. Yeah it got here just in time for me to leave for my son's basketball game. So... I took the car to the game. Heads were turning everywhere we went. Car is # 285. Lots of the kids wanting rides (and older kids!) I did promptly miss second gear on the first drive. The family of five plus the dealer were in the car. Boy did I catch $h_t for that. And yeah, before anyone points it out we were overloaded in the car. I was not out in the garage drooling the whole time. I have put on 300 miles in about 30 hours. God I love this car. Pics will have to wait until tomorrow.

Here are a couple quick photos of #285. Not great pics because of overcast weather. Took it out again last night to the neighboring town (We live in rural america - hometown population is about 400!). Had to show it off a little. No moving violations yet!

Jealous of the turbo shelby shadow.

Gravel road is actually the driveway. We have 1 mile of gravel to get to the highway at about 15 mph. I plan to get the splash guards, but I hadn't even thought of the 3M film.

Oz1 - the Shelby was bought by my wife (then fiancee) back in our college days. She wanted a Lebaron. The Shadow was parked about two cars over and I told her we should test drive it. About five miles from the dealership I convinced her to get the Shadow. It was purchased new in '91 with some discounts since it was an '89.

Congrats! That's probably the most miles on the 392 aside from the Hemi Highway car. I think I remember your thread about how to prevent body scratches from the gravel driveway. Love your shirt too lol
