I love muscle cars.  I always have.  I feel they are a stunning blend of technology and artistry.  Our most recent passion has been our 2009 Shelby GT500 Super Snake.  I have, however, always maintained a respect for the grand daddy of them all, the Shelby 1000.  I knew that gorgeous creation would never be within our reach though and so it remained a poster car, until now.   We found this beauty in Texas in 2017 and immediately fell in love.  From the enormous Shelby 1000isk build list at about ~$200k to the unique drag-racer look she had us at hello.  With an engine, transmission, drivetrain, and chassis built for 2000+ hp, our new story has now begun.  Here are recent dyno tuning sessions:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKad9gjpu7Q   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8f28TO_uN5s   Shout out to SeriousHP in Houston, Texas and their lead man Michael DeLong for their build quality, expertise, and passion.  The quality of their work surpasses anything else I have ever seen.  If you are looking for quality, reliability, and a shop you can trust with your life, look no further.   http://www.serioushp.com Credit to Alex Peitz for the professional tune. http://www.peitzperformancetunes.com Horsepower rating on parts:   MMR 5.8 L Alloy Block w/ Pro Mod sleeve upgrade - 3100 hp  4340 Forged Cobra Jet crank - 2100 hp  Billet Aluminum MMR Rods w/ARP 2000 bolts - 3000 hp  M2500R MMR/Manley "Redfire" coated pistons w/custom piston pins - 2500 hp  Total Seal AP steel file fit rings - 3000 hp
