I'm not looking for Shelby to reproduce the GT-H banner. I'm looking for the original 2007 GT-H banner that hung in the old North Las Vegas Museum. I'm sure it didn't get tossed in the trash when Shelby moved so someone out there must have it. That, or it's still in a box somewhere in the new facility.
No matter, somebody has this banner and I'd like to try and put it together with the 06 production banner. You see, I have the GT-H hood, with all the GT-H production staff autographs, that hung in the old Las Vegas Museum. I have the GT-H stand that had the 06 details of the car and I have the 06 production banner. that hung in the production facility The only thing I don't have is the 07 production banner and I'd like to try and complete the collection. It might take years to uncover the 07 banner but I think the effort would be worth it.
So anyone who might have the details of the whereabouts of the 07 GT-H production banner, please contact me. If might be worthwhile.
Yes I understand what you're looking for, its that this thread started to go down a different road so I was trying to address that topic before it sidetracked your thread completely.
In regards to your question, off the top of my head I don't recall where this particular GTH banner went. Keep in mind that when a previous SPP director started selling Speedway memorabilia a few years back not everything was sold through the SPP ebay store, many items were and still are sold directly or disposed of without any publicity.
For example many years back when we changed the company name from Shelby Automobiles back to Shelby American we had a signage company change the 30 foot vinyl signage banner from the front of the main Speedway building. As the IT Director and I were inspecting the new signage install, one of the signage workers was just about to stuff the old Shelby Automobiles signage into the dumpster until I stopped him by saying that banner is Shelby history and needs to be kept.
Fast forward a couple of years later, the CSCF was seeking donations for their auction night at the annual Shelby Bash. I grabbed Ms Jenni Shreeves and said come with me I have a great item for tonight's auction. Jenni was quite surprised that I had the foresight to save this signage and she and I unrolled the signage over the top of her rental car, got Carroll out of his trailer to autograph it and that night it found a new home. No ebay or Shelby Store was involved so basically if you weren't at that years Bash you would never know about this piece of memorabilia leaving the building.
So the point I'm trying to make is that just because you didn't see the GTH banner up for sale on the internet that doesn't mean its still around. The above signage example shows just one of many ways on how items can leave SAI. Some items have left under favorable circumstances, like the above banner, other items have left under less than favorable circumstances.
