  17. Bring back the dash plaques. They were given out at the earlier events. The commemorative die-cast is a good idea. Even though this really isn't a membership item, I would also like to see an event t-shirt for the bash brought back. There wasn't one last year.
  18. Attended the 2015 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca this past weekend. Impressive collection of all kinds of vintage race cars, particularly a lot of original Shelby GT350s. Team Shelby was well represented at the event along with an impressive display of cars and merchandise from Shelby America. Bob Bondurant, Peter Brock, Allen Grant and John Morton were available to talk about the history of Shelby American and also graciously made themselves available for an autograph session. Thanks to Team Shelby, Team Shelby Pacific Coast Region and Shelby American for their hospitality.

  20. The 2015 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion will occur August 12 - 16 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA. The marquee for this year's event is the Shelby GT350 Mustang. Should be a great event since the GT350 is celebrating its 50th anniversary. For more information, click on the link below: http://www.mazdaraceway.com/rolex-monterey-motorsports-reunion Who's going?
  21. Check out the September issue of Road & Track. It includes a great article about the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe. Also in the issue is the new Ford GT being named in the top 10 Most Beautiful Cars (#1) in the 21st Century. https://www.facebook.com/PeterBrockDesigns/photos/a.106671382836571.323.106435722860137/300460316791009/?type=1&fref=nf (Peter Brock Facebook page post.)
  22. Saw that video at the Shelby Bash this year. Great video of some great history. Thanks for sharing. Happy 4th of July!
  23. 50 years ago today (July 4) Shelby American secured the World Manufacturers Championship with the Coba Daytona Coupe, CSX 2601, driven by Bob Bondurant and Jo Schlesser at Reims, France. A very historic day for Shelby American and the United States!
  24. The Cobra Owners Club of America Orange County (COCOA) hosted their 18th annual Concours De Nice at the Park Mall outside of the Westin Hotel located at South Coast Plaza on June 14.
