Just got back to the office from picking up my White/ Black interior. this car is awesome nice and tight love how it accelerates and handles. This replaces my 07 Shelby GT500 i could not grasp the fact that i couldn't drive the Shelby every day and take everywhere so i opted for the ISF, i drove a regular IS for about two months waitng for a white one. I traded in a 07 SC 430 and ordered the ISF for everyday use. So far I think it's a great choice!

Welcome, to the "F" family...I too also have an SC430 that I'm gonna hold on to because they're not making them anymore, great car.As far as the Shelby. ..wow..love the sound of a stang, also love the fact that on american cars or trucks we can put stickers and labels on them to show our cars ala the Shelby King Cobra cop car in Transformers movie."To punish and enslave" LOL
Really cant do that on my F...

I Did The Same Thing!

Just got back to the office from picking up my White/ Black interior. this car is awesome nice and tight love how it accelerates and handles. This replaces my 07 Shelby GT i could not grasp the fact that i couldn't drive the Shelby every day and take everywhere so i opted for the IFS, i drove a regular IS for about two months waiting for a white one. I traded in a 07 SC 430 and ordered the IFS for everyday use. So far I think it's a great choice!

WOW! I DID THE SAME THING...........

Sold my 07 Shelby GT 500 for $60,000 and opted for the IFS with no regrets. The Shelby was just too heavy, especially in the front. I couldn't get below 4.5 sec. 0 to 60 times. I see that the IFS is hitting 4.2 to 4.5 range with no mods. I also sold my 2006 Mercedes Benz 500 with no regrets. The Lexus is so much better in all aspects. With very low production numbers compared to the Shelby, I for see a long term great return on this wise investment, only time will tell. :)

This car seems quicker and the handling is hands down far superior, the greatest thing about this car is that it is a sleeper. not many people are aware of its capabilities and they are GREAT! No regrets so far. I bought my shelby early on and was not to happy with ford going way beyond what they originally planned. The F production is a very low number, the technology seems way above the shelby toyota really did their homework, i still loved the Shelby awesome ride great top end speed and performance and above all a real head turner it will be missed!

No I'm not going to put the frame on. Did you have yours installed when you got yours? By the way what part of RI are you from. We should do a photoshoot with both of our cars :)

I did not have them install the bracket, it's in the trunk. I guess i'll wait till I get my first 5 day tag. I live in Coventry, I think thats a plan to get the two cars and photo them, how cool would that be whit and black!
