I have coveted Shelby's since and can't wait to visit the Shelby museum in 'Vegas in our '08 white and blue stripe GT500. I will take photos and attach them if I can figure out how.
Very cool! What a great bus trip you and your buddy took as young auto enthusiasts. When I was a little kid, I wrote Mr. Shelby a letter asking him for information on the Cobra and on the Shelby Mustangs. By that time, just the Shelby's were in existence. Still, I received a nice letter signed by Shelby, and several brochures. Ever since, I too am a lifelong fan.
