Hey SHO folks! My name is Cliff Walter and I live and work in the Atlanta Ga, metro area. I have just purchased my 2nd SHO last week. I previously had a 2012 white SHO but unfortunately it was totaled on March 2nd of this year. I just purchased its replacement this past Friday. I seriously thought about a 2016 Jaguar XJ8L Portfolio Supercharged but I just couldn't get by the "Hey, look at me!" aspect of owning something like that. That is why I luckily found a Kona Blue 2011 SHO in FT Myers Florida. It had just been traded in by the original owner for a new Acura and I was able to purchase it before it was put on the Acura's dealer used car lot. It has every single option (even a factory engine block heater!!! In South Florida!!! LOL) and I even have the original factory window sticker. I owned the 2012 for 3 years and absolutely fell in love with it. I was SO PO'd when I wrecked it as I knew that Ford only built a little over 1800 SHO's in 2012. That is why I started to look for something else to replace it as I knew that I would never find another one and especially as nice as that one. However, I was wrong. The 2011 has been babied since new and it is extremely nice and 100% factory stock. I did have the 2012 "tuned" but I don't think I am going to do that to the 2011. It performs well enough for me. The SHO in general is really a luxury car that goes fast. I have owned several Lincolns and even bought a brand new 2011 Mustang GT when they went back to the 5.0. I know that Mustang was 425 hp but I swear the SHO feels just as fast and without the harsh ride and difficulty of getting in and out of it. I'm sorry for rambling along but I just wanted to let you know that there is another SHO guy out there. I hope to read more and more comments. Thanks! Cliff
