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! Ownership of a Shelby is not required to be a member. The club is dedicated to serving all Shelby enthusiasts past and present including those that own cars built in the 1960's and Shelby Dodges too!

    Sean is working with the short tour, that may be changing. His neighbors are doing this and that is why we are not sure. We can make it work, it's fluid, the photo shoot was at the beginning. There son wants to get some on road shot, too! The goal was an early photo opp early in the drive. Thanks Rob for the questions! Brian

    Then the Tiger, one with the new owner after he repainted it.
  12. 2015-2018 GT350 Owners

    My view on the "Regret of selling the older classic machine". Selling it (the classic) has allowed us to to something new that = meeting more knew people. Just like getting into Team Shelby. Our Mustang K code help us meet many folks as I looked for history behind the cars story, sold new at a VW dealership in Yakima,WA, Gift car from Shelby to Lew Florence that was racing a CSX 2459 289 Cobra race car. Then the 1966 MK1 Sunbeam Tiger lead us down the road to those folks. Then after the Tiger sold we bought the Racer -FR500S and that lead to racing and meeting more great people. If we had stayed in one classic (per my budget) we would have not meet the others the we have shared great times with in life. Plus, selling the classic allowed another family to enjoy what we have enjoyed! Always another way to look forward down the Highway, as Shelby was asked "what was your favorite" his answer "The Next One". As someone that has race a little bit, racing is looking forward (even Vintage racers up the ante) as in driving you must look ahead to the next corner! Gotta keep looking down the road for the next adventure in life! Just the way I look at it, we each have our own ways and that's what makes it so interesting!!! The 289 Hi Po (just under 300rwhp) with an aftermarket cam and other modern bits, worked from 3400rpm to 7800rpm, the new 350 is very familiar to me after owning the 65 for 34 years. Sold the 65 and a 97SVT Cobra to get into the GT350. Best to you all, Brian
  13. 2015-2018 GT350 Owners

    Levi, I bought my GT350 from the Ford Dealer in Cut Bank, Montana! First stop on the way back to Washington was Shelby Montana! We had such a great drive home and what a state to break in the VooDoo engine! 985 mile to our home and one week and an first oil change, I was on track at PIR and yup fast car out of the box, holy crap what fun! We laid down 10K plus from May 25 to October 2017. Drove it to the Ford Racing School, too in September. She has some scares but they are mine and will tell a story someday for the next owner, hopfully many years from now. I'm like so many of you, my first Shelby, I total get the engine (side note I have been racing an X- Mustang Challenge FR500S) I'm 58 this year, started like you all from nothing. Marries the High School Sweetheart and has put up with the Crazy car hobby (she drove a Sunbeam Tiger for 17 years as much as she could-none daily driver-but did drive to work a lot with it) we are lucky guys. Great stories all! Oh, On the recaros seats I like them and very use to a containment seat as stated before. I'm 5'11" 180. Very best to you all, Brian H4027 at Pacific Raceways coming out of Turn 5. Meet a goal Did 4 track: PIR (Portland, OR) then Pacific Raceways, near Kent WA and then The Ridge Motorsports Park near Shelton, WA. Last for 2017 was Oregon Raceway Park (eastern Oregon). Great fist year for us.
