    VIN 1ZVHT88S885151257. I ended up buying the car. This is my first Shelby.
    Does anyone know the previous owner or anything about the car? It would be greatly appreciated. And any advice would be appreciated also. I am located in Woodstock Ga. Thanks

    You have to be patient when buying a high performance used car. I've owned 3 Shelbys, and all 3 took time and patience to find. The one I own now took 3 years of searching for the right car. By 3 years of searching I mean finding one, and if it didn't meet my criteria, I walk away. My criteria includes: the car must be bone stock, low miles and cared for. If modded, it must have some documentation to show "Bubba" didn't install the parts himself while 15 beers deep. The car I own now is 11 years old. When I found it 2 years ago , it had 15, 000 miles, all dealer tags and plastic covers were still inside car which I had to remove, and engine was just like it came from factory. You have to remember, people will immediately start to mod these cars without any real knowledge of what they are doing. Most go by what they read on a forum, burn a piston, then dump the car onto someone else. That's why an 85,000 mile car would scare the hell out of me. I would run from that car, especially with no knowledge of what exactly was done to it. Just my 2¢, good luck!

    LOL, yeah EVERYONE just NEEDS to have a shop install EVERYTHING or it's crap! ROFL!

    Also "bone stock" could easily mean "bubba" returned it to stock, sold off all mods, and is now selling a "never modded" car.

    Very true, cars can always be returned to stock. You definitely take some chance in buying the car, and I've done most of the work on my cars myself, not a shop. But I can tell the buyer that, and show them what I did to the car. The OP made it sound as if the car he was looking at had zero history besides what he could visually see. The big blower, intake, and gears. The car didn't even have the tuner with it, sketchy. I would at minimum want to discuss what the seller did to the car if he did the work. The OP had no way way of doing this, or any other history on the car.

    Thats how mine was sold to me. 15K on a "stock" 4 year old car in 2015. Turns out either Ford or the prior owner forgot to install the diamond coated lock washer and the ECU saw the crank trigger signal misfiring like a son of a bitch event though it wasnt. 2 months,a buyback offer and a lot of sadness and I finally got my car back. Since it got fixed? Not a damn problem.

    Now that GTR that smashed into me at the drag strip might make a mess of things. Still means my car is stock original right? Ford parts were used to fix it... :D :D :D
