SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Shelby School of High Performance Driving
« on: January 14, 2022, 09:48:34 AM »
Is there a list of the students who attended the Shelby School of High Performance Driving? The reason I ask is because I'm trying to verify that a past 65 GT 350 owner went through it.
He owned #137 which had a brass plaque under the radio that said "made especially for Lee Jennings". I "found" this car in the late 80's near my hometown and 20 years later met Lee who went by the name "Slim". I remember him mentioning that he visited the factory and went through the driving school. He owned two different 65's a 67' GT 350 and a 427 Cobra all of which were in the Oklahoma City area I think, possibly Tulsa. wherever Moore Ford was.
I never got to know Lee well and he has since passed but seeing the brass plaque and not knowing that story and then in a completely unrelated instance meeting "Slim" who I found out was in fact Lee Jennings and his ownership history has been eating at me forever.
