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!

  1. Latest News On The Shelby Movie

    Sounds like there is still life to this movie... http://autoweek.com/article/car-life/matt-damon-will-play-carroll-shelby-upcoming-movie
  2. Die-Cast collections

    I did pick up the entire set, even the less-than-impressive Mustang. The other 50th set is a really nice black carded set that I've found at Walgreens as well as Albertsons. Sadly, the Camaro chase car has seemingly been ripped from every place that got these to be scalped on ebay. The set you did find at Target is a pretty good representation of what was on the pegs 50 years ago, just not at 5.99. The new Star Wars sets, as well as the Super Hunts have had some very nice wheels, but some of the $1 cars have had some awful ones.
  3. Any Pictures from Carlisle, Pa Ford Nationals

    I was there, next to the tent, in my rental... Yes, you read it right. This was parked next to me... And, well...no need to say much about this one... And a link to my Flickr album... https://www.flickr.com/photos/falcongtho3/albums/72157667945066897

    As the guys from Monty Python would say, now for something completely different...
  5. Die-Cast collections

    A few years ago Johnny Lightning brought out a 1:24 scale '69 Mach 1. If you can overlook the aftermarket style wheels and the rear window louvers and rear spoiler, it's a nice addition to any collection. The red, white and blue cars came boxed, the New Lime car came unboxed and were sold loose only as far as I know. The 1:43 red convertible was included in the goodie box for those who attended the 45th Mustang show in Birmingham. They did sell extras for a donation to charity.
  6. Die-Cast collections

    Very nice. I got into diecast with the Viper back in the early 90s. You have to start somewhere!
  7. Die-Cast collections

    Some time ago Hot Wheels issued a set of cars that replicated some of Jay Lenos collection. To the best of my knowledge these are unique castings to this set, and very highly detailed.
  8. Die-Cast collections

    This was given to me today by a friend of mine who was a well respected local racer back in the day. It pretty much blew me away...
  9. Die-Cast collections

    A look at the rear of a Moffet 69 in contract to the previous 70 Boss. A look at a weak moment with a computer and a credit card and a really weak moment for the Ford GT Lastly, special paint GT500 KR from Acme. This is from the defunct Mustang Magazine Legend series. Good magazine, and Tom Shaw was a force in Mustang publishing for many years. Note the tool box in the truck, there is also a full spare kit and serial number in the trunk as well.
  10. Die-Cast collections

    This is something a little different from my files...
  11. Die-Cast collections

    Wanted to share this newly released set while were still on the subject...
  12. Die-Cast collections

    I think we covered them all. They did not do a Grabber Orange, Black Jade or a Pastel Grey diecast as far as I know. The black with white stripe was never a production option, although the prototype was this combination. The black with red never happened in real life as well.
  13. Die-Cast collections

    Actually they are the rarer '70 cars. At least two of them are. The '69s should not have a front spoiler. The hood stripes and front spoiler were the only two things that differentiate the two years, other than the updated VIN plates.
  14. Die-Cast collections

    Looks great. Funny you should post up the Moffatt Boss 302 from back in the day. I have the same, more common non-Coke logoed version. The GT500 KR is a Spencers (yes, THAT Spencers) variation.
  15. Die-Cast collections

    Dusted off (literally) a few more...
  16. Die-Cast collections

    Beautiful collection of some amazing diecast. Interesting that you brought out the '69 ERTL sportsroof. I dusted off some of my ERTL '69 Shelby convertibles. Also, a few pictures of another GT500 Super Snake 427 edition, this time from the Shelby Heart Fund edition.
  17. Die-Cast collections

    That GL Boss 9 always confused me since that wasn't a color offered on the actual car back in '69.
  18. This link might help with the price question, but it certainly appears to be a case of : if you have to ask... http://autoweek.com/article/tuners/omg-its-back-ghost-shelby-series-1-returns-shelby-series-2

    My first new car was an 5.0 '82 GT. Since no one made a model kit of it (look it up, they didn't), I kit bashed one, including a Ford EXP kit to get the correct steering wheel. I know the rims arent' correct '82 GT wheels, but in it's later year my own car sported the larger 15" 85 GT wheels. A lot of hand painting for this 1:25 scale beauty that will always hold a special place in my heart.
  20. Available Yet?

    Not a diecast, but a resin. I've got the Liquid blue version and it's very nice. https://fairfieldcollectibles.com/2016-imsa-ford-gt-laguna-seca-grand-prix-winner-1-18-scale-diecast-model-by-top-speed.html
  21. Die-Cast collections

    I love that they're doing that piece. Haven't found one yet, but on the hunt for it. If you don't know the story about the actual Transit Super Van (and yes, there was one built), hit the link and check out the video. https://jalopnik.com/the-original-transit-supervan-was-a-gt40-engine-in-a-fr-1784415254
  22. Die-Cast collections

    I've got a mini-version of it as well, a Christmas ornament offered by one of the tool supply companies.
  23. Die-Cast collections

    Was fortunate enough to go to the 100th running of the Indy 500 (scratch that one off the bucket list!) as a guest of Firestone. The night before the race we had a dinner that included a visit by all of the drivers. Most stayed long enough to sign and chat. This poster was given out to all attendees, but we had to get our own signatures. I didn't get the eventual race winner, but I think I did pretty good. The piece at the bottom is the ticket to the race in a special holder.
  24. Die-Cast collections

    A Ferrari? Really? Ferraris are red! all of them. Even if they're not, they are! That's McLaren orange if I ever saw it. More Viper...
  25. Die-Cast collections

    In the non-Ford realm, this is one of my favorites. Had to send it back twice due to tampo issues, and for the money AutoArt charges, I wasn't going to let those issues go.
