 Hello gentlemen, do you have any idea how many 65 and 66 Shelby’s are registered for Tulsa?

I don't know about popular vote but I understand there are two 65's entered in concours.

Did anyone take photos of the factory stock classic Shelby's at Mid-America?
I'm sure there are many of us who would like to see them.

I'd be happy to post the photos (if that is an issue). All I see are new Shelby's and Mustangs in the event coverage so far.
Were there any concours Shelby's there?

Yes there were and normally they are on display on the final day in the area that has the covered roof. Think its in the south west corner of the show area.

Cars are judged off site where there is access to a number of lifts and some very welcomed shade and in some limited situations in the lobby area of the host hotel in the past.

Thanks Jeff,
We always hear rumblings about the Tulsa Shelby meet, but rarely get to see any of the classic Shelby's that were there.

As far as the street driven 65-70 Shelby cars. There was a 3000 series and one 2000 series Cobra. 2 GT350H's, blk./gold 4-speed, and a green/gold auto. A 67 GT350 with Webers, a couple of 68's , one being a survivor.
 
Not a very good turnout for the vintage stuff, but there were plenty of vintage cars on the track at Hallett.

And the best part of the Sunday show was my wife's 66 GT 350H received Best of Show!

Yes we've heard that allot related to the attendance at all of the Shelby shows - IMHO much more than what is seen at Mustang shows - attendance appears to be down and I think we all believe it should be more. Would never try and judge attendance of a show by the number of cars entered in the Concours judging since that has allot more outside factors that can cause ebbs and flows year to year. But the number of cars in the parking lot or at the popular vote is a better measurement.  Also repetitive shows (same time and place every year) have their own issues that can affect low turn out from year to year.

Didn't stay this year for the last day so can't comment on the turn out. Didn't even take a picture the whole weekend which may be a first.

But often it's part our fault since many of us are the ones not bringing the cars out.  Not to say there are not good excuses, not my job to say, but it's  a circle. Less owners bring cars, less people and owners that enjoy them attend.

I brought my black ‘70 CJ this year. It was in the stock 65-70 class, where there were less than 5 cars. Attendance seemed really down this year at all of the events except Hallet. May be my last year as it is a 9 hour drive.
