Team Shelby 2016 Calendar – Submit your photos!

Recommended Posts

There seems to be an overwhelmingly positive response in including a Team Shelby Calendar in the 2016 Membership Kit. We also think it’s a great idea!! I need you to upload images here so Team Shelby Members can vote on the vehicles and/or images to include! Thanks for such great feedback! We will start the voting process in November. The images can include vehicles, events, people... be creative and have fun! I can’t wait to see what you guys and gals come up with!

THE 2016 WINNERS!!!!

 

I know you’ve been anxiously waiting for the winners of the 2016 Team Shelby Calendar contest. Some of the photo contest links stated different announcement days, but the first link indicated December 3rd, so I apologize for any nail biting! First of all, the photos were all incredible! So much so, that we will be sharing many on social media next year! Thanks to everyone that submitted images. These winners were chosen by you out of the 200 photos submitted! The Team Shelby Calendar will be included in the 2016 membership kit so you can enjoy them all year long!

Valley of Fire trip made with Jim Hardie for the 50th Anniversary of the Mustang in his 900 HP 07 GT500 (just finished the engine rebuild the day before leaving). They travelled through the Valley of Fire and met up with the Supersnake, Shelby 1000 and a Shelby GT and set up the shot in front of the sign. On the way Mike raced the Mohave mile @ 175 MPH and the Las Vegas Speedway before driving back to Toronto.

2008 GT500 in Vista Blue with Performance White Le Mans stripes and an orange FIA stripe across the nose in tribute to the Shelby racecars of the 1960's. The orange being associated with Bob Bondurant.

Photo was taken 8/22/14, on a very overcast day. Nikon D7000, 100 ISO, 34mm focal length.

To achieve the HDR effect, three images were taken at varying exposures (f6.3/160, f5/100, f8/250), then 'stacked' on top of each other and the best portions of each photo allowed to show through.

Photo taken in historic Blackwater, MO in front of the Iron Horse Hotel October 2014.

Side note, we met a dozen Shelby owners for a weekend stay at the hotel. The town's population is 159 and the mayor's name is Shelby. Needless to say, our Shelby’s were a big hit in the small town that weekend.

This car (1966 GT350) is owned by someone who should be a familiar name to all Shelby enthusiasts......Chuck Cantwell. This photo was taken at a small airport in PA, while a few of us waited for a P-51 Mustang to arrive for a "photo op". Due to bad weather at the home airport of the P-51, the plane got fogged in and never made it down that day. We made the best of it by sharing some BBQ, and swapping Shelby stories all afternoon. Photo was taken 8/22/14, and is an HDR edit of 3 individual exposures.

 

#7 Photo

This is the very first Cobra Daytona Coupe ever built, and the only one fully built in the United States (the other 5 had bodies made in Italy). It is chassis number CSX2287. The car is currently owned by Dr. Simeone, and is on display in the Simeone Museum in Philadelphia, PA. The car is as original as possible, having undergone only minor mechanical restoration to be safe to drive, and is being preserved 'as is'. Current value of this car is not something Dr. Simeone likes to talk about, but next to the first Cobra itself (CSX2000), this has to be most valuable Shelby existence. The car was photographed at the Simeone Museum.

1965 Shelby GT350. This photo was taken August of 2008 at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

2008 GT500 photographed in a rock quarry in PA. This is a single photo that has been "tone mapped" then edited to give it a more artistic look. It's a pseudo-HDR effect.

 

Photo #10

2007 Shelby GT 500 convertible, 5.4 Supercharged, 3.4 Whipple supercharger, Dynatech long tube headers, X Pipe, Borla S-Type axle backs, JLT Oil Separator, DSS Aluminum Driveshaft, Super Snake Hood,

Photo was taken at The Tail of the Dragon, 318 Turns in 11 miles, April 2014.

 

Photo #11

This car (2007 Shelby GT/SC) is owned by Doug Niebell (aka Doug_GT350 on the Team Shelby forums). The car was purchased as a Shelby GT, and then sent to the Shelby Mod Shop at Tasca Ford in Rhode Island to have the supercharger upgrade installed. As clean as it is, Doug drives the car to many events including the Cobra Nats in Canada, and the Woodward Dream cruise in Detroit.

The car was photographed the same day as Chuck Cantwell's GT350 (8/22/14), as Doug was one of the folks waiting at the airport for the prodigal P-51 Mustang.

Photo is a HDR edit of three composite photos.

 

Photo #12

Taken by William Caron

Team Shelby Username: Z-Man

This photo was taken at Pocono Raceway on the tri-oval track on 8/21 during SAAC-40.

Taken with a Nikon D7000 at f/5.6, 1/400th sec, 100 ISO, 250mm focal length

It is interesting to note that the side exhaust comes out from under the car, not through a cut-out just behind the front wheels. This was the way the first few cars were done, but was quickly changed as the 'rigors' of road racing the cars would soon crush and flatten the exhaust. Changing it to exit through the side of the car allowed the exhaust to be raised, and therefore less prone to damage.

Great Idea! I would suggest you select from the uploaded images but check with your printer for what resolution will be best for printing. Then get an original image of that resolution or higher to submit to the printer. When my car was part of the Ford GT group calendar they wanted the raw camera image and tweeked it for printing.

For the voting process the images can be a low resolution in this thread. If your photo is picked for the calendar, I will need a high-res version. Most phones today and digital cameras save the images at pretty high resolutions. I will create a folder to upload the winning images once chosen! These are nice photos above... I assume part of the vote? Love the hat by the shifter... :)

This one has always been my favorite but it may be to blurry for a calendar and I no longer have the raw form. I guess it is picture taking time.. :camera:

Below the line are the pictures in his signature but yeah nice picture.

 

Edit

So how do we vote? The posts that have the most likes? Also to keep things clear probably should only include one picture per post and only vote for the pictures that are above the signature line.

Why not surprise us. Jerry Heasley has taken numerous pictures at the Bashes and other Shelby folks as well that are seldom published or scene. I cannot recall which year it was but a small photo album was done that was very nice. That could have ben a calendar as well.

 

That said, I have a lot of pictures but most are to large to post. Thoughts on how that can be submitted?

Use photobucket. Upload them there then use the link provided to post here. Thats what I use. All of my pictures are well over 20 MB. Edited by sheppd01

The photo of Carroll leaning on Sharon's car at Terlingua is one of the best photos of him I ever saw.

 

 

I think that should be the cover of the calendar.

So basically, we can just have Z-man do the calendar. :hysterical: You do take some nice pictures! Between you and some shots from Albani in Terlingua, that can make a full calendar.
