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. 2019 Team Shelby East Coast Grand Nationals / SAAC-44 For the first time on the East coast, Team Shelby and the Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) are combining forces, and invite you to an unparalleled celebration of the Shelby marque. Taking place in the Northern Pittsburgh area on Thursday, July 11th through Saturday, July 13th, 2019, Team Shelby and SAAC will be hosting both the Team Shelby East Coast Grand Nationals, and SAAC-44, the Shelby American Automobile Club’s National Convention! The event is open to all Team S...helby and SAAC members, as well as anyone who appreciates all things Shelby. The clubs are working to bring you two days of high performance driving at the Pittsburgh International Race Complex, a road rally tour and Poker Run of the western Pennsylvania area, dinner events and programs on both Thursday and Friday evening, alternate activities for those who choose to not track their cars both days, Concours and popular ballot cars shows, and a few surprises as well. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in all portions of the event, as all activities are open to both Team Shelby and SAAC members, and can be selected during registration. Besides our two days of Open Track and wheel-to-wheel Vintage Races, as an added bonus, members from the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix will join us at the track, as one of the opening activities of Pittsburgh’s 2019 Race Week, for three full days of exciting track action, culminating the following weekend (July 20th and 21st) in Beautiful Schenley Park with cars shows for all marques, an automotive vendor village, food courtyards, and of course the Vintage Racing taking place in and around the Bob O’Connor Golf Course. Shelby American will be the featured marque of the Vintage Grand Prix this year, so Team Shelby and SAAC members will feel right at home, and are encouraged to stay in Pittsburg for Race Week, enjoying the events that are planned for each day. Registration to open by the end of this year! PS – For those of you wondering, Team Shelby will still be celebrating our weekend at the Carlisle Ford Nationals, taking place on Friday, May 31st through Sunday, June 2nd. It will include all the Carlisle activities of prior years, but will not include a track/HPDE component for 2019. Consider it the “Kick Off’ event to the Grand Nationals & SAAC-44, which will be taking place the following month. As always, SAAC members and all Shelby and performance Ford enthusiasts are encouraged to join us at Carlisle for some damn fun! More details to follow.
  2. Tune in to watch the creation of the event logo for the 2019 Team Shelby East Coast Grand Nationals on a live Facebook feed this Thursday evening. Where: Team Shelby Northeast Region Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/groups/264936540196609/about/ When: 8:00pm Eastern Time... Who: Renowned artist Micah Claycamp from "Micahdoodles" https://www.facebook.com/micahdoodles/ Micah is know for his "CarToon" style of drawing, exaggerating a cars curves and proportions to create a caricature of a vehicles personality. However, he also has started doing more realistic drawings which while not as wild, still allow his automotive subjects attitude to show through....this is the style he will be using for our logo. You can follow him on Instagram : @ micahdoodles I will be on the Live Feed via text to answer any questions about Team Shelby in general, as well as questions about our East Coast Grand National event taking place in conjunction with SAAC, in the Pittsburgh area. Tune in to be the first to see what this years logo will be, and what car it will feature!
  3. Tony- I’ll send you a PM to discuss. bill /Z-man

  5. Secondo - This year Carlisle is a 'stand alone' event, and not part of the East Coast Grand Nationals. Because of that, we will not be going to Summit Point on Thursday, prior to our Carlisle Weekend, which start on Friday. However, this years East Coast Grand Nationals with have TWO days of track at the Pittsburgh International Race Complex. Check out the post for the Grand Nationals for more info. ....attending both events is your best option to not miss any of the 'damn fun!'

  10. Team Shelby East Coast Grand Nationals / SAAC-44 Popular Ballot Car Show – Saturday, July 13th,2019 As more information is starting to roll out about our “little Shelby gathering” out by Pittsburgh, PA, in mid-July, we wanted to share a bit of info about one of the favorite non-driving event activities, the Popular Ballot Car Show! Past conventions have used various ways of creating classes and awarding recognition, from a rigid class list with 1-3 places per class, to just a panel of VIP's walking around and selecting a few cars that catch their eye. Each way has its own merits and faults. More often than not a class method is used, but unfortunately, not all of the trophies end up being awarded if the individual classes are not fully represented. Every year, this topic is reviewed to try to make the show better for all…and we have a new approach for 2019. For this year, we are using a “hybrid method”, which has been used very successfully in local and regional Shelby shows. It recognizes the best in a total of 33 different classes for all years and models of Shelby’s and High Performance Fords, plus a "Top 25" and additional special/VIP picks. SAAC 44 / TS East Grand Nationals Car Show Classes Class # Class Name 1 CSX 2000 289 Cobras 2 CSX 3000 427 Cobras 3 CSX 4000 through 9000 Cobras 4 1965 GT-350 5 1966 GT-350 6 1966 GT-350 Hertz 7 1967 GT-350 8 1967 GT-500 9 1968 GT-350 10 1968 GT-500 & 500KR 11 1969 & 1970 GT-350 12 1969 & 1970 GT-500 13 1969-1971 BOSS Mustang 14 2012-2013 BOSS Mustang 15 2007 - 2009 GT-500 All 16 2007-2009 GT-500 KR & Super Snakes 17 2010-2014 GT-500 All 18 2010-2014 GT-500 Super Snakes 19 2010 to Present GT-350 20 2007 To Present GT & SGT 21 2006 to Present GT-H 22 Shelby Trucks 23 1965 to 1973 Mustangs Stock 24 1965 to 1973 Mustangs Modified 25 1974 to 2004 Mustangs ALL 26 2005 to Present Mustangs ALL 27 Special Edition Mustangs (Saleen, Roush, etc) 28 2005 to Present Ford GT 29 Exotic Ford (Pantera, Tiger, etc) 30 Replicas ALL 31 Competition Cars 32 Special Interest 33 Classic Shelby Mustang Tribute TOP 25 Peoples Choice (1) Team Shelby Pick (1) SAAC Pick (1) Sponsors Choice / Celebrity Pick (2) All show entrants will be given a perforated voting sheet and envelope for their cars. The empty envelope goes under your windshield wiper, then the entrants will walk the showfield and put a ticket (i.e. a ‘vote’) in their favorite cars envelope, thereby creating the Top 25 award winning group. Separately, a panel of judges from SAAC and Team Shelby will walk the field and select the first place car for each of the 33 classes. If a car wins both a Top 25 and a first place, the car will only be awarded the first place, which allows for more winners overall. No car can win two awards. Likewise, if a car wins a “special/VIP award” (SAAC or TS Pick, People’s Choice, etc.) it is also removed from the top 25 and the first place competition. The goal is to give out all the awards and also give more cars the chance of winning and being recognized. Another aspect of the show, which we hope will make it enjoyable, will be the relaxing of the rigid class structure. We will still group by classic and modern Shelby, real Cobras, etc, but not try to make the show field a rigid parking puzzle. If you are with a bunch of friends, this also allows for you to park together and enjoy the show with each other. The car show is a joint effort by both SAAC and Team Shelby, and we hope all either enter their cars, or attend. The final location has yet to be determined. If you wish to help at the car show, we welcome all volunteers. More details will be forthcoming, but we wanted to get this info out early so all can see this part of the convention, and start detailing your rides now. We look forward to seeing you at the show!
  11. Pennsylvania Members - Sound Off!

    Welcome to Team Shelby! Glad you joined up and look Fort to meeting you at events in the Northeast Region.
  12. Die-Cast collections

    Picked this up a few days ago. Is plastic, so not technically a die-cast, but I think you will like it anyway. It’s a 1/24 scale slot car by Carrera. The detail is very nice, and I haven’t seen this car in this scale previously. If you actually put in on the slot car track, the head lights and tail lights will illuminate (I may have to rig something up for display).
  13. Check here for info.....https://www.facebook.com/events/239226783320842/?ti=icl This is a combination SAAC and Team Shelby event. It’s a great weekend with lots on nice people and beautiful Shelby’s.
  14. Why No New England Shelby Meet?

    Would anyone be willing to drive to Manhattan on Sunday, June 24th for "Coffee and Cannoli"? If so, PM the New York State Director via this Facebook page.....https://www.facebook.com/groups/TeamShelbyNewYorkChapter/?fref=nf
  15. Why No New England Shelby Meet?

    The East Coast Grand Nationals are the main “East Coast” event. The drive from Connecticut to Summit Point and the Carlisle is more than a couple hours, but not that bad. Some of the Northeast guys drive their cars all the way to Las Vegas for the Bash. You may be pleased to know we just brought a Connecticut State Director on line, and he is beginning to set up some events a little farther North. Check it out on Facebook at Team Shelby Northeast Region - Connecticut Chapter. Team Shelby also recently began cross promoting events with the Mustang Club of America. Check out their Grand National Show this year in New Hampshire. Check out their link here...http://granitestategrandnat.com/
  16. TWO WEEKS TO GO!!!!! You can download a copy of the event Survival Guide, and register here....http://www.teamshelbynortheast.com/upcoming-events/ There is still time to join us and have some damn fun!!!

  18. Fun Collectables

    If you attend the Team Shelby East Coast Grand Nationals, there may be an opportunity to get a few Shelby "beverages'' there.....so I am told (wink, wink).
  19. If you have already signed up....thanks for your registration, and we are looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks. It’s still not too late to encourage a friend to sign up as well. If you are planning on attending, but haven’t signed up yet....don’t wait any longer, as counts need to be sent to catering and printers. Please sign up in the next few days. If you aren’t planning on attending....what do we need to do, or what activities are missing, that would make you attend in the future? Bill / Z-man
  20. If you will be attending The Ford Nationals at Carlisle, either as part of the Team Shelby East Coast Grand Nationals, or as a stand alone event, this weekend is your last opportunity to sign up and receive you tickets via “Gate-and-Go” (meaning you won’t need to stand in line and register on site), and to help Team Shelby win the largest club contest. Please be sure to select TEAM SHELBY as your club affiliation, and please register this weekend!!!! Every vehicle does matter (we missed second place last year by just two cars). TEAM SHELBY is now in third place......time is running out!!

  21. Happy Easter

    Dr Hawkeye brings up some interesting points, but it all boils down to either believing or not believing. If someone wants to label that 'blind faith", I won't argue. If the group of us involved in this discussion are Christians, we all believe in the same God, and shouldn't be looking for things that separate us, but rather, things that unite us. The good Doctor said that he was a Baptist until he started questioning things, and those questions led him along a different path. I think that is a smart and healthy approach to ones faith, especially if they can't get past the "'blind faith' hurdle. There are many paths to God....seek the one that speaks to you and you can believe in. Every denomination will argue it is the 'right' one. We know they can't all be the right one, and we won't truly know which one is 'right' until our days on this Earth are over and we enter the next realm. I have made my choice, and placed my faith where I feel it best fits. Does that mean anyone who doesn't believe exactly what I believe is wrong, is a heretic, or doomed to Hell....I don't think so. I would gladly break bread with anyone who has faith. As far as some of your questions, Secondo has pointed out there is one original text. Many men have translated it. Men make mistakes. Two men can see and hear the same thing, and interpret it differently, so I'm not surprised there are variations in the work of man, and multiple versions of their translations. I haven't personally seen the original text, nor do I speak Aramaic (assuming that's the language they were written in), so I can't tell you which version is correct. Each person needs to make their own choice. I'm not familiar with the "young girl" versus Virgin debate....I need to educate myself......but I know where my faith lies and what I believe. Yes, Jesus was not born on Dec. 25th. That date was appropriated by early Christians to coincide with an existing pagan celebration, to ease the conversion of the pagans to Christianity. As much as Easter moves from year to year, it obviously isn't on the exact day of the Resurrection either. Mormon's (and I had to Google this to be sure), are Christian, but hold other beliefs (or dis-beliefs) that do not correspond with either being a Catholic or a Protestant. They are their own denomination. Who is to say their leader didn't hear an angel? I may not believe it, but many do. Time will tell. I guess my religion has taught me tolerance and acceptance, but still give me the strength to stand up for what I believe. Jesus wasn't all forgiveness and gentility. He also was known to flip over the vendors tables in his Fathers house and then chase people around with a whip...sounds like my kind of guy.
  22. Happy Easter

    Dr Hawkeye, while legitimate questions, if you truly are looking for answers, Google is your friend and can provide the information you are seeking, as some of your questions are very easily answered. You could also connect with a number of religious scholars who could help you interpret the nuances and differences in the various accounts and versions of the Bible and the Torah. You will find many more similarities than differences if you care to take a look. If, on the other hand, you are asking your questions just to cause controversy or in an attempt to discredit someone's beliefs, that is indeed being passive aggressive and abusive. So, are you asking for help and attempting to educate yourself on a subject that you currently don't understand, or are you somehow upset that others believe in something that in your view is flawed and contradictory. In either case, on a website that caters to automotive enthusiasts you are much more likely to find answers about horse power as opposed to "His" power.
  23. Happy Easter

    I’m a “mod”, as well as a Christian, and I have been watching this thread with my finger hovering over the button to lock it down if it got abusive or people stated insulting each other. I keep a lot of my personal opinions to myself, but let me share for s moment... I feel that in being a Christian, or a person of any faith, you are sometimes called apon to defend your beliefs and stand up for your faith. Educating others, and evangelizing is part of that. Not everyone will agree (heck, wars have been fought over religious differences), but the act of debating what I believe deepens my faith and brings me closer to Christ. You don’t have to believe, but I do. I encourage the CIVIL AND RESPECTFUL exchanges of opinion on this thread, but my finger remains “on the button”. Please don’t make me press it.
