Shelby Car Show At Willow


An especially nice addition to the 50th Anniversary G.T. 350 Celebration weekend was the Car Show on Saturday...




It's always fun at Shelby car shows. I love it when people walk up to me and say, "John, where's your Shelby?". I point toward the early Shelby row, and say, "It's the one that's white with blue stripes!"

ShelbyGuy's '66.





Weber induction:



A very early production '67 G.T. 350: "inboard" high-beams...


...and red running lights (quickly outlawed in California and other states). Only about 200 cars received these very unique high-mounted lights. Evidently, Shelby was way before his time by 20 years! Today, all cars since model year 1986 must have a Center High Mounted Stop Light (CHMSL)!



Early production "inboard" high-beam lights, also deemed illegal in several states, necessitated that they be moved "outboard" in later '67 production.



A really nice '69 G.T. 350:

After the show, parade laps for the show cars; an historic and stunningly magnificent day at the Raceway!
