Shelby F-150 Owner Embarrassment to Ford Fans, Human Race

Shelby F-150

What kind of despicable piece of garbage repeatedly parks their Shelby F-150 to take up not one, but two, disabled parking spaces?

Taking up two spots is something even die-hard gearheads generally don’t defend. Put a picture of your rig straddling a line on the forum, and you’re asking to get roasted. That said? Plenty of misguided people still do it. But I’ve never seen anything so evident of hateful psychosis as the parking job I witnessed last night. Yup, that’s a Shelby F-150 Super Snake taking up two disabled parking spaces—and it gets worse.

I snapped these pics after walking a friend back to her place in Bellevue, Washington, and according to her, this despicable piece of garbage does this all the time. He even removes the plates from his truck at night, I imagine so it’ll be harder to identify him? Because there’s no way you can drive around Bellevue sans plates. You’d be pulled over in a heartbeat.

Honestly? I want to know who the hell this guy thinks he is. Because he’s taken an amazing machine—bearing the name of American hero Carroll Shelby, no less!—and turned it into an ugly codpiece. Because he’s giving a middle finger to a group of people who have a hard enough time getting around as it is, and because he’s giving gearheads everywhere a bad name. I like to think I’m a pretty nice guy, but this made me see red, and I’m pretty sure it will piss off a lot of Ford-Trucks members too.

Part of me wanted to camp out in that garage overnight, catch this scumbag as he’s ready to leave, and ask him some questions for the record. At this point, why the apartment complex hasn’t evicted him is simply beyond me. Doesn’t this poisonous crap seem like it’d violate your lease? It sure seems like it to me.

So, keeping in mind that vandalizing any vehicle is wrong, how would you handle this situation? Ever dealt with a something similar?
