Great clip Brian.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think there were only two in that color, and I believe it may be "Hertz" gold?

I'll be in Monterey Thursday through Saturday of this week (my first trip to Monterey during car week - I can't wait!). 

I wanted to see if anyone else will be in the area, and I'm especially interested to see if anyone is taking part in the Team Shelby Monterey Experience.  I received an email about a week back about this event.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend all the events.  Instead, I'll only be there for all of Thursday's activities.

One thing I was not aware of (happens all the time  ;)) is that Thursday night will include a movie screening of the new documentary called "Shelby American"; which is produced by Adam Corolla and Nate Adams about Carroll Shelby's life.  Has anyone else heard about this documentary?

Thanks!  :D

My dance card was already set before this package was announced, so I will only be at Russo Thursday afternoon and breakfast on Friday at the Spanish Inn.

First time I met Nate Adams was at a private viewing at Apple in Cupertino a few years ago for their movie, The 24 Hour War.

He was at the Shelby Bash last year, and we spoke about this film.

Sadly I won't be able to watch the movie. Spoiler alert, they have interviews with both Phil Remington and Dan Gurney in it!!!!

Motor on!

The best pic that I personally took of Carroll

Monterey County Fairgrounds, Aug 2010, with the "new" GT350

This was a closed shoot, but I knew the right people to be asked along.

The photographer was to the right, but with me moving to the left, I liked this shot with the Cobra in background

Thanx to the fine work of SAAC registrars, I was able to connect with the original owner of our 68KR.

I have been chatting with him on and off for the past few years, and sharing with him many photos from our past 28 years of stewardship.

The gentleman bought the car new and had it for two years at which time he traded it in on a 1970 Boss 302 (He traded a 66 K-code coupe to get the KR).

Sadly, Mike (the original owner had no photos or paperwork to share, just his memory.

Until a couple of days ago, when I opened my inbox and found this email from him.

The photo is from the winter of 1968 in Spokane, which was the worst winter in 50 years, with so much snow, that drivers would put red flags on their antennas so other drivers could see them coming from the other side of the snow banks.

I was thrilled to get this picture from him, and hopefully, he finds some others that have been hidden away...
