Few things automotive related are sadder than seeing a once great vehicle resigned to life of near DD-level mediocrity after a minor fender-bender.  That was situation in which SVTP Member Mike93SVT found his project 2010 Shelby GT500 Mustang.  Not satisfied to see a such potential wasted Mike bough the car and began the painstaking process of resto-modding the SVT to better than new condition.
