He wanted to create a club for people to truly enjoy their cars. He knew the world had changed, and he wanted his companies to meet the needs of the new generation of Shelby owners. His vision was to knit together those people with the owners of early Shelby's and give everyone fun new ways to experience their high performance vehicles.   Mr. Shelby imagined a place where owners could talk about their latest conquests at the track, swap stories, share photos and learn new ways to hot rod their cars! He wanted to link all of the enthusiasts into one "dream garage"... thus, Team Shelby was born!   Team Shelby has many free, open access forums, news sections and member only areas dedicated to the community.   In addition, Team Shelby has a full series of events for 2018, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more!

  1. Die-Cast collections

    Getting away from the Batmobiles (we really could be here all day), here's a few more Ford pieces (hey, wait...the Barris Batmobile WAS Ford powered!). The top Cobra hauler is the gold trimmed chase version. The Boss 429 is also a gold trimmed chase piece. The three 1:87 scale cars are a run that Hot Wheels tried out. And yes, there's a Batmobile in there, and good luck finding one for a reasonable price.
  2. Little Red is Found?

  3. Little Red is Found?

    Even though Kevin Marti has documented the car, I'm a bit suspicious as well. Sounds like last years Bullitt find in Baja, but you never know. It had to end up somewhere, if the crusher didn't get it. Equally 'interesting' is that the person who has the Green Hornet ends up with it's twin, Lil Red. But I guess persistence can pay off, especially if you have the funds to make your own luck.
  4. 1968 Shelby Cobra

    '66 was the only year that the Hertz cars has unique stripes and designation. There were Shelby rental GT-350s in 68 and 69 as well, but without and special striping.
  5. Die-Cast collections

    They actually might not have been able to sign it if was a 1:18 HW version. They were under contract to sign a limited amount of those for one company and could not sign any more due to to contractual obligation. I have a record album cover signed by both Adam and Burt Ward (Robin) that I took to a Wizard World event, the bonus for me being that Adam wasn't too busy and was happy to talk up cars and living in the Seattle area, as well as a hilarious video of him washing a Batmoble replica for Griots. Burt was nice, but not nearly so talkative.
  6. Die-Cast collections

    I'm considering having the older car restored. There are replacement parts available and services that will do the work as well. But I kinda like with its 'as played with' patina.
  7. Die-Cast collections

    Original release Corgi on the right, and a later release of the 267 Corgi Batmobile which normally stays parked in its original box.
  8. Die-Cast collections

    And if you want to see some Batmobile diecast...well, I can probably arrange that...
  9. Die-Cast collections

    Will check it out. Here's a different piece as well. The Bricklin is a signed edition from the designer, Herb Grasse, who unfortunately passed not long after these were offered. Mr. Grasse also worked for George Barris and had a hand in transforming the Lincoln Futura in to the Batmobile.

    All hail the flying eyeball! Very cool stuff!!!
  11. Die-Cast collections

    Stunning piece, really love the detail.
  12. Die-Cast collections

    Cool find, and awesome price.We don't have have Meijers here, so doubt I'll see any Shelby Collectibles on any pegs with TRU shutting down. Here's a few you need for your collections...
  13. Die-Cast collections

    Thanks guys, but you've put up some pretty darn impressive stuff yourselves. Love those GT40s, and the treasures you've shared. Don't stop now! (And I have got to grab one of those red 2018 GTs!)
  14. Die-Cast collections

    Shelby Collectibles did some 1:64 diorama sets, here's two. And although I don't collect a lot of NASCAR, I can't not share this Carl Edwards signed Fusion.
  15. Die-Cast collections

    Another Elite series I have is the Enzo. Even comes with removable luggage!
  16. Die-Cast collections

    Since this is a Shelby site, the 2007 GT500 Hot Wheels Elite. I try to ignore the oversized wheels. It looks like 22"s. The carpet inside is nice.
  17. Die-Cast collections

    A few Anniversary pieces, the Ford GT pair is the American release on the right and European release on the left.Other than a sticker on the back of the package I can find no difference. The 1:18 is Beanstalk piece, one of 1000.
  18. Tire pressue monitor fault

    Even though the current sensors are band type, you can replace them with the stem type and save yourself money and headaches. I do it all the time at my tire shop.
  19. Die-Cast collections

    I has a Q-Code (non-ram air) '69 Grande', and it would pass anything but a gas station...when I could traction. People buying performance cars now are getting great performing cars, but nothing like the torque beasts we know and love.
  20. Die-Cast collections

    That is a great piece. I did get one of those, as well as having the set that TRU did at Christmas. Has the same artwork on the box. There is also an earlier release of the same piece in liquid blue on the Forza card, as well as an earlier TRU set with the same on the box.
  21. Die-Cast collections

    681/2 Cobra Jets from Maisto
  22. Die-Cast collections

    And these are just for fun...
  23. Die-Cast collections

    Some older sets I thought you might find of interest...
  24. Die-Cast collections

    A few new additions to the collection I thought I'd share...
  25. Die-Cast collections

    Those aren't KRs. Look at the air cleaner. Neither was the gold car, the scoops should be closed off by the airbox which seals to the ram-air air cleaner.. Nice A. O Smith shot.
