It’s not unheard of for certain cars to languish on the dealer’s lot until someone finally rescues them. Edward Guise bought this 2014 Shelby GT500 from Century Ford in Mount Airy, Maryland, in March 2014. “They had it shipped from their sister dealership in Virginia Beach, where it had been sitting since September 2013, at no charge,” Guise says. We’re sure the shipping fee was in there somewhere, but at the time of purchase, Guise says he didn’t really know what he had when he first purchased the car. He spent a month at the dragstrip getting to know what he had, and it was then that he fully learned about horsepower. These days Guise and the Shelby are regulars at local car shows.
