Shelby Drive to Afton VA Today
« on: November 06, 2021, 08:13:55 PM »
A small group of early GT350 owners from Eastern and Central VA got together today to make a run up Route 6 from Richmond, through Scottsville and up to a section of the Blue Ridge Parkway south of I-64, ending at The Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton VA for lunch. Larry Barnett, Bob Garland, Greg Bradner and Tim Kilinski drove their 66 and 67 GT350s (I just rode along and took pictures this time). Great company, great weather and great food. Thanks to Tim for organizing this. See the link below to the photos.

Great array of Shelbys.  I am biased of course, but I particularly like the red Hertz.  Was that a GPS device on the dash?  Interesting to see plug-in modern technology co-existing with the old tech (and tach).
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

I've driven Rt 6 and Rt 151 in the Afton area so many times. It had to be a blast to do it in a Shelby. Glad you had fun. Great pictures.
