Do them all.  I am sure the Road to Hana would be fun in your car.

I’ve thought of it ;D
Owned since 1971, driven over 236,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

Bought 6S550 in Aug 1967, when Hertz turned them back to Ford for sale.
Original owner of 6S550. Owned since 1967. 64,000 Miles, all body original except hood and front valance. All glass original except windshield. Still has aluminum 4 speed. Has replacement Mico.  Also own 1966 Mustang convertible. They are drivers, not trailer queens.

Not recommended now. I have done it scores of times over the years but no more.  Thanks to social media and influx of thousands of tourists, you will rarely get out of first or second gear and get your foot off the brakes.  Too many visitors taking photos at every turn  in their rentals and bus loads of tour vans clogging the route and dodging periodic  8)rain and landslides.

Alternate to your plans:
1) ship 1431 over to me with a Go Pro camera and I will run and document its vist to the 50th State.  I promise to senfd the footage back.
2) ship 1431 over here and join it for a joint cruise with me in 6S2187.  It can shelter in my warehouse for the visit.  You will be on your own.

I don't own a Shelby. But my wife owns the 69 Mach 1 her (Late) Father bought from the original owner on January 22, 1970.
