  7. Thanks for sharing. Your video gives a good idea of what it's like to be on the track! Team Shelby Pacific Coast Region - San Diego Chapter
  8. This year's Bash was one of the better ones. I've attended all (except one) since the 85th and this one was pretty good. Having Honored guests Bob Bondurant, Peter Brock, Allen Grant, Chuck Cantwell and Ted Sutton as well as other former Shelby American employees share about the 1960s/70s era was great hearing about the history of Shelby America and the cars, can't get enough of that. Would like continue to see former Shelby employees attend future Bash events to extend the conversation of that period of Shelby/racing history. The new generation of Team Shelby has the responsibility to pass on the history of what Shelby did for international racing and performance automobile development.

  18. The original Shelby American group that developed the prototype "R" Model GT350 have gotten together to build a one-of-a-kind Mustang the way they would have 50 years ago if they had the opportunity. This Mustang is being developed with the IRS rear end along with some additional design improvements, in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the first competition win of the GT350 at Green Valley Raceway by Ken Miles. Check out the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrcoU5AovV0
