    Well you can look forward to a little less weight in the new shelby with no spare tire. It says in the pre order pdf that you get a can of fix a flat repair kit instead.

    How is the Ford Roadside Assistance? I have AAA and they are pretty good, but usually slow getting someone out to you.

    As for the Fix-a-flat, I guess if you are driving a GT500 around and had a flat, you wouldn't really want to pop on a doughnut spare!

    Umm...the car has pretty big breaks...I don't know if they make a spare that big to just "pop" on.

    Actually, that's not too bad. Most of the high performance cars now don't have a spare and come with run-flat tires, which arn't the best for performance. Since they are going the fix-a-flat can route they can save money on tires not having to buy expensive run flats (and pass the savings on to you) and get better performing tires.:nice:

    You could always purchase a spare wheel and tire and keep it in the trunk.:D

    That's probably another $500+ for that on top of $65,000 for the car.:rolleyes:
