If you didn’t make it to the Mustang car show at Perry Farm in Bourbonnais, IL today, you missed out! It was an awesome display of some of the hottest Stangs from every generation. There were Shelbys, Saleens, Roushs, you name it. 2nd gen Mustang Cobras were in the house, even a ’67 GT500KR. It was incredible.
Stay tuned for coverage of the Perry Farm Ford and Mustang Show, which is of course TODAY, Sunday, August 1, 2010, at 459 N. Kennedy Drive in Bourbonnais, IL.
If you haven’t already seen one, the new 2011 Shelby G500’s are sporting a 120-lb lighter front-end due to an aluminum block and some other stuff, as well as switching to electronic power steering. They are also bearing narrower stripes from front to back, is that cool or what I can’t tell.
Paul’s High Performance offers the PHP Stage III Performance Package for Shelbt GT500’s, good for another 120-hp and similar torque gain at the rear wheels.

Who said 540-hp was enough to satisfy everyone? Chances are if you opted for a Shelby GT500, you’re power-hungry, and someday you’re gonna look for more. Without even opening up the motor, you can unlock 612 rear-wheel horsies on your beast.
