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 2019, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more!

  1. Odd bang under dash...

    Yep, it’s that blend door motor Secondo referred to. I have the exact same problem in my Ford Expedition...except I get 11-13 clicks for a little extra frustrating noise! ?
  2. Die-Cast collections

    I love the SHELBY lettering on the tool cabinet.
  3. Shelby American Racing

    Bob Bondurant’s signature is on this “French”-based poster because he drove the #187 Daytona Coupe in the 1964 Tour de France for Shelby American. None of the Daytona Coupes finished this race. The picture here is of the Exoto diecast model of his car. Note the logo for the race on the front of the car, which is unique to the various liveries for the Coupes in 1964-1965. Again, great signed poster! Now you have the lineage for it.
  4. Shelby American Racing

    6 down...mystery solved. The signature underneath Maurice Trintignant’s is his co-driver in the 1964 Tour de France...Bernard de Saint Auban. The picture below is from the signature edition of the Daytona Cobra Coupes book...I have one and it is the definitive edition for these cars. His signature is in the center, two down from Carroll Shelby. So, what you have is a poster printed by a French company that had some event where they brought together the makers of the Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe and the French race drivers from the 1964 Tour de France. Nice piece!...put it under some sun-proof glass and on the wall so those signatures don’t fade any more than they already have! Don’t hide this in the closet. Thanks for sharing!
  5. Shelby American Racing

    5 down, 1 to go. The signature to the lower left of Carroll Shelby is Maurice Trintignant. He drove the #188 Daytona Cobra Coupe in the 1964 Tour de France for Shelby America. Didn’t finish the race but a valiant effort in the first several 1964 outings for the greatest American race car in history (in my humble opinion!).

    Thanks for the clarification! I should have known but was in the moment of all the 1969 model year postings and had the body style on the brain. Did Ertl make any other colors of the GT350s?
  7. Die-Cast collections

    And how about we finish off the body style with some of the rarer 1969 GT350 convertibles? I particularly like the American flag on the back window of the black one!
  8. Die-Cast collections

    I think these are the last of the 1969 Shelby GT500 convertibles...if any one has one that hasn’t been posted, it would be great to see it.

    I saw that Welly “re-released” the Allan Moffat Coca Cola Boss 302 recently. I was curious if anyone knows the story behind these cars. I bought mine in Australia literally 15 years ago and I haven’t seen it in the U.S. until now. I always thought it was because of licensing issues with Coca Cola. The car I have is exactly like yours EXCEPT for the Ford “Blue Oval” and the “Motorcraft” sticker on the doors, engine, everything. What made Ford jump into the licensing behind this car NOW to put those extra stickers on it years later? Check out both yours and mine... EDIT: Now that I look again the wheels on mine are slightly different...or are they? Also just noticed that yours has hood twist lock decals, and mine does not.

    I have a tough time deciding which are my favorite Shelbys...but the 1968-1969 GT500 convertibles (especially the KR) are definitely at the top of the list. And Ertl made a lot of them. I am, however, pretty sure my favorite color is Acapulco Blue...though there are so many good ones to choose from. I’ll post pictures of the other Ertl 1969 convertible diecasts besides what you just posted in a bit. This particular one I had signed by The Man back in the mid 90s...the rear decklid on these pieces provides a perfectly flat canvas. Love your Super Snake with the signature! The tampo on the rear quarter panel and then the real sig on the roof is neat. Mach 1, that’s the same car as yours without the Shelby Heart Fund symbol above the emblem. Mine is just the plain jane Super Snake...but really, ARE there ANY plain jane Shelby Super Snakes?...I suppose not.

    Time to bring this set of posts full circle since I started off with the 1968 GT California Special Mustang...here is AutoArt’s 2007 Mustang California Special. This is another diecast car that I had to search for years to get a good one at a reasonable price since I didn’t buy it new. The engine detail on the AutoArt cars is pretty good and the paint is nice. The packaging boxes on AA has always been flimsy compared to others IMO. I had a 2012 GT/CS and I absolutely loved the styling and performance. In the end I traded it for my 2008 GT500KR...well played I think.

    Here is the 2016 Shelby GT in red with silver stripes from GT Spirit. The details of the interior of this car are better than anything I have ever seen...and I’ve seen a lot! If someone could put together a better picture one might think the interior is of the real car! The exterior paint is perhaps the best ever on any model, Exoto being the only other that comes close - tell me if you agree. Just look at the crazy detailed closeup of the Shelby Forged wheel and the front brake rotor...you can even see the cobra center emblem! All that said, these resin cars don’t allow us to open the doors, hood, or trunk...and so there are ZERO engine details and you can’t see the loose change and dropped french fries under the seats. Regardless, for paint finish alone and other details these GT Spirit cars are awesome cars to look at.

    As Falcon pointed out earlier with his post of his first new car...the 1982 Mustang 5.0, there are virtually NO examples in either plastic models or diecast of the 1980s Mustangs. So, when GMP started producing some versions of these beauties I had to have them. One of the rarest of these is the 1985 Mustang 5.0 “Twister Special” in Jalapena Red. The quality on the GMP cars is pretty good, and though these go for a pretty penny I was able to pick one up several years ago for what I consider to be a decent price. Highly recommended if you’re in the market for 1980s diecast Mustangs...you’ll have to wait a LONG time to get the 1980s Shelby Mustangs.

    Let’s switch gears a little bit...here is a 1:16 Ertl AMT plastic kit of a 1964 1/2 Mustang Hardtop that I hand built and painted more than 25 years ago. The contrast in colors between the painted parts in the engine compartment, the chassis, and the interior look decent I believe. I think the it turned out pretty well, and it is interesting to note that back then I didn’t use any high gloss spray on my models...this is only the original Testors candy red paint.

    As we all know, back in the early 1990s Ertl was the mass producer of diecast cars. And, though their quality and detail certainly wasn’t top of the line way back then they manufactured a huge variety of mustangs and Shelbys virtually every style and paint scheme. I have a lot of 1969 cars, but this particular 1969 Shelby GT500 is candy apple red with bright white stripes and white interior took me many, many years to find in MIB condition. It was worth the hunt and it fits in very nicely with the other red cars!
