  1. You guys make me blush! Wait! Am I still allowed to post here???
  2. Can we refer to them as "tributes" instead of clones?
  3. In 1967, Shelby American and Ford Motor Company won Le Mans with the Ford GT. That was the only time that an “All American” team captured the crown. Fifty years later, we are returning to watch the most challenging endurance race in the world with the first Team Shelby Le Mans VIP Experience. Join Aaron Shelby and Team Shelby for this adventure on June 16-18. 2017. Working directly with Ford Motor Company and SMC Events, Team Shelby has a package that includes tickets to an exclusive suite overlooking pit row, special autograph sessions, motorsport celebrity appearances, meals, limited edition gifts and unbelievable access to amenities. There are options for hotel rooms and even a helicopter ride if you want to add some extra fun to your trip. If you price other manufacturer-sponsored packages, you will find the value for this Team Shelby Le Mans VIP Experience is simply incredible. Carroll Shelby was the only person to win Le Mans as a driver, team owner and manufacturer. This is a fantastic opportunity to relive Shelby history and witness Ford’s defense of their crown in the next generation Ford GT. Sign up asap because space is very limited. We hope to see you at the finish line in Le Mans! If you have questions, email traceys@shelby.com. More information here
  4. The 24 Hours of Le Mans. What an amazing race it is. What an amazing win last year for Ford. Imagine watching the 24 Hours of Le Mans race from a PRIVATE pit suite located above the LMP1 garages. Looking down through the open windows, directly over the cars and the pit crews and watching the driver changes. Now imagine hopping a shuttle to the Mulsanne Straight to the Ford Hospitality area at the Michelin Chicane and watching the cars blaze down the fastest part of the track. Rotors glowing red at night as the cars slow from well over 200mph. Imagine snacks and meals and beer and wine flowing freely as the race roars on for 24 incredible hours. Imagine taking a helicopter tour over the track DURING the race and watching a couple of laps from the air. Imagine a special garage tour and support paddock access. Imagine meeting Ford GT drivers and Ford and Shelby royalty. And finally, imagine doing this with 40 other diehard fans of the Blue Oval brand. Well, you don’t have to imagine it because you can LIVE IT! Join Team Shelby, Ford Performance and SMC Events for a once in a lifetime opportunity. An opportunity not just to visit Le Mans, but to experience the race in a way that few people ever get the chance to – as a VIP.

  6. Shelby will not publicly release build info and numbers until the program is officially closed, even then it sometimes takes a year or more for those numbers to be released. In the meantime, enjoy your awesome car! The only other thing we can do is
  7. Michael, I changed my reservation to the group reservation. Hope that helps!
  8. Hello Southern Plains members! If you are interested in joining the Southern Plains caravan to the Bash (most of us will be going to Gardena first) please email me so I can get a good headcount and make the appropriate reservations/accommodations. As it stands now, we will leave from Texas on the morning of March 6th and we will arrive in Gardena on March 8th. We will meet up with people along the way. We will be taking Interstate 10. I'm working on getting "reasonable" accommodations (i.e. $125 a night or so). If you are interested in sharing a room I can work on that as well. sean at SMCEVENTS dot com is my email address.
  9. From what I am hearing I agree. 4 doors, small SUV.
  10. Happy New Year from the Terlingua Preservation Society board of directors. As we do every year, we are opening registration for all past and current alumni for the 2017 event as of January 1, 2017. Nothing is needed from you now except an email back to David saying you are planning to attend the T17 event. Your email which will hold you a spot. We were completely full last year and want to give all alumni the first opportunity to hold a space first. T17 promises to be better than ever with some new happenings on day one, and all the things you have enjoyed including the speedrun, performance events and more. Please send David an email back to vorpl8@yahoo.com to hold a space and let me know how many people are in your party. A $300 deposit will be due May 1, 2017 as in past years. The cost will remain the same as the last year, Lajitas our event hotel has agreed to work with us to keep the cost from rising. The cost will be $1,400 single and $1,700 for two people, Please also let David know if you plan to attend the pre-event and wish for a room Wednesday evening at Lajitas, which will allow you to keep the same room for the whole event. The extra room night cost will be $200 with all taxes and room taxes included. The Star Gazer Mesa event will be an extra again you can sign up for now or later. Space is limited to the first 40 people for Star Gazer Mesa with the additional cost of $195 per person like last year. 2016 was our biggest event ever and we raised over $25,000 for local charities thanks to everyone who attended. Plus we had great times, drove hard and saw lots of the heritage of the Terlingua area. You can cancel as always without penalty until September 1st, but please send an email so we can hold spots and then get newbies space (if they exist) starting March 1. See you in Terlingua!! P.S. New attendees "Newbies" can register starting March 1st. As always, we prefer a check as that saves the charity about 2% but we can take credit cards and PayPal as well.
  11. I have many things signed by Aaron and many things signed by Henry III but what I dont have (yet) is anything signed by both of them. Thanks Dubbs for making me realize this. Now to work on getting that done!.
  12. Always nice to see another bunny hit the road! Let us all know where abouts you are located! Yes, the decals Shelby are using are not the same as the ones used on the last production run - but as Dubbs said there are replacements available and profit from these go to the Terlingua Preservation Society to boot! Win-Win! If you ever want to join some of the other bunny owners for the annual Terlingua event just let us know - best event of the year
