Thanks to Rick Kopec and all the contributors that made this a very entertaining read
Owned since 1971, driven over 236,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

Just finished this last issue.  It's hands down one of the best perks about being a SAAC member, reading the latest copy of the Shelby American. 
Thanks,

Someone should tell Ken Young the Matchbox Elvis 4-pack does not have a red Cobra in it.
It was actually a 1960 MGA 1600 from the movie "Blue Hawaii"
Oh and did I mention it was an Avon exclusive.
 :P

We did make the 427 Cobra for a different Matchbox Elvis "Drive In" diorama from the Movie "Spinout"

Yep, a Great read. A lot of work for Rick and the gang.
Much appreciated by me and all SAAC members i'm sure.
I sent in updates on #2020 to Howard for the upcoming 66 Registry and photos to Rick for their use.
Next minute an email comes back from Rick with an article on 2020, and that it would be in the Spring Edition of The Shelby American.
To say i was plesantly surprised would be an understatement.
Another great effort by the team.
