Why these engine caps are not being sold?


Amigo GT500

Recommended Posts

I just got a set about three weeks ago, they look great. Sorry they are out of stock, maybe they will come out with another set that you will like.

Rev, that's the best avatar picture I've seen in a while!

 

Looks like one of my dogs (except he only has 3 legs)!

My set has all of the 4.6 cap set except for the radiator cap, which I needed for my SC upgrade. Power steering, oil dipstick, brake fluid, washer fluid, and another for the oil fill. It has Shelby in Blue and a red cobra - like on the shelbystore.com website, not like above. I will part with this set for $99 plus $10 shipping.

 

They look like these. But a lot cheaper.

You can buy the radiator cap alone from Shelby for $50 and still save a lot of $.

I have a set of the "Shelby GT" ones minus the oil cap..... I got them from a friend so I could have the radiator cap for the SC to match my set. Problem is I don't have the "Shelby GT" caps on the rest of the engine, I have the red snake ones.

now if someone were to make a radiator cap that matches my set appear...... :idea:

This avatar kind of reminds me of my recent buddy named Timber. He was a jack Russell mix. I had to send him to doggy heaven last Christmas. I miss him.

He would play catch for hours on end.

So are these discontinued ? I have been looking at the store for the last 6 months waiting for them to

be back in stock. If they are discontinued then that would explain why I've never gotten an e-mail

saying they were back in stock. Seems you can still order them individualy but at a much high cost.

Beautiful dog, sorry to hear of your loss. My Doberman Ace died of cancer earlier in the year, it was a tough blow to my wife and I - It was while I was planning the Guitar Center event for the Bash, so I was already hectic and crazy. Broke our hearts. We've since adopted another Doberman, AND then Flannery. Our original Dachshund puppy is also going strong, so the house gets a bit nutty sometimes!

They called me yesterday. They said that they didnt have in stock and checked with the manufacturer (Shelby) and not longer available....I cant understand why some online companies advertised products that at the end they dont have it!!

 

I answered them that I already knew that!! :rockon:

These are the same caps I wanted but I couldn't find them anywhere. So I settled for the ones with the snake on them and bought them from Brother's Performance.

 

I like em!

 

Laurence

Did you win the Shelby GT caps or the ones with the Snake on them?

Amigo Laurence.....they were the GT ones.

Like most things, these caps require a MINIMUM of 250 sets to manufacture. Hard to say we would sell that many...

I remember Robert Lane took a HUGE beating on them because they're made in China.

 

I seem to remember they stopped selling them for a time but were still selling the Project 321 caps (Made in USA).

 

That may or may not have anything to do with it. As far as I know, they're Drake items but made in China.

 

He was also taking a beating because the are COVERS, and not CAPS (you have to use your own Rad/IC caps that these glue onto).

 

You sure you want that job, Jer? <lol>
