We don't think so, I know of a few of the late model South Florida tuners, techs and parts purveyors and parts producers that do come in and look into the SAAC site. They not only enjoy the late models Stangs, Vettes,  forgein cars but also the early Shelby cars.

They wonder why we have a section with late models Shelbys but when anything gets posted most of the time the reply is  go to that "other site" site


That would have to be a question for the 20 somethings of today. There are not too many on this site, the old DOGS dont have much interest in the new stuff. More OLD guys like VETTES anyways , you see them at every car show... Good on them.
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

I kinda sorta agree just like the 65-67 program taking mustang K cars and transforming them into Shelbys

Not to be a stickler but the 06 Shelby GT was nothing but a Mustang GT with $2000 worth of Motorsport parts added. Many magazines panned it and the suckers who paid $10,000 above the price of a GT. The 07 GT500 was a 100% SVT project the CS was brought in at the last minute to use as a marketing face. The hot rod GT500s (and any GT350s) that CS sold were just mods done to Ford built cars. Any Mustang based car CS has done in the last 10-12 years are modified post title due to emissions laws and are basically just tuner cars.
The VINs all come back to Ford. Yes they get a SA # but that is a production number not a VIN

 Ford cannot  provide parts for the new cars they want to build/  they sure are not going out of their way to keep old cars on road .

#1 the electronics will prevent them from being repairable.
#2 the electronics even if nos on a shelf will still be questionable . they will still be old even if not being used .
#3 One bad module will / can take out the entire network and car will not start

these are not going to be cars that you go to napa and fix .   
Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

Two things I worried about :

1) When electronic ignition came out, would the ignition points in our cars be obsolete  ?

2) When the end of year 1999 all electronics and especially computers would stop and civilization as we know would cease to function.

Neither happened,  oh well

There is no greater sorrow than to recall happiness in times of misery.... so what's your pick as the most highly collectible late model CSM Shelby ?

Interesting thread, several comments on " how many were made ", as if that makes it worth more money !
How many were made only makes it rare, & doesn't add to it's value.
2 examples:

2014 Shelby GT500 - Marti report states it's " 1 of 1 ".
.


.
2017 F150 Lariat - Marti report states it's " 1 of 1 ".
.

.
.
On a side note, - The Prudhomme editions are streetable,............this one is CSM 07DP0002, Bob the owner lives in Pa.
.
