The movie is doing all kinds of interesting promotions and they coordinated a display of a few Shelby's and Ford GT's on the mall at UT.  Jimmy Fallon was there filming for the tonight show and drove one of the cars.  Here are a few pics

While at SEMA and after The Shelby Factory/Museum party we went a block away to the movie theatre to see it. "Outstanding and extremely well done"! I will see it again!

Nicely done!  Great pics.  I wish my son would have known about this event as he works a few blocks from the campus.

Hmmm... is that one of the continuation cars?
Emberglo MKII - car # 4 - looks pretty similar color to these pix.
