My take on it all:
   As Coralsnake said, it was a great year for all the different 65 GT 350's.  Various conditions - Concours to rusty.

   In the area under the grandstands where the Concours and display cars were, was what I'd call the 12 Million dollar show.  Ken Miles prototype cobra roadster, a 63 289 Cobra, 65 GT 350 #0003, A 65 GT 350 R model, 2 big block Cobras (a 427, AND a 428), an original family owned 65 GT 350 another 65 GT 350, a 66 GT 350, a Boss 429, and my 67 GT 350 #0036.  All in an area about 100 X100.  And I might be a little low on the $12,000,000.
 
   On the parade laps, there was a wide variety of vehicles. Included was a Shelby Dakota.  Me, I took my 2011 F-150 around for the 3 given laps.  I don't  know who was driving the pace car but I think they left the gas pedal out in the parking lot, hardly grazed 45 MPH.

  The popular vote show was pretty good, Cobras, Ford GT's, plenty of Shelbys there.

  The yellow shirt Indy guards(?) were mostly smiling even though it was tough to get to alike answers such as where to park the trailer (not according to the map at all).  But highly kind.  And all the SVRA people were glad we were there with them.

  And it seems there were quite a few long term owners there.  I bumped into an original purchaser of a 67 GT 500 (Ed), and a 289 Cobra owner who bought his in 1974.  Plus a few others.  Well these cars are keepers aren't they?

Great first SAAC National Convention in the books. Was able to see some truly amazing cars and meet some amazing people.
Thanks, Austin

Not a picture, but here is a video posted on google of a walk through the concours area under the bleachers.
I wish there were more photos of all these beautiful Shelby cars.

I wasn't able to attend SAAC-47 in person, but have combed through other people's webphotos to identify all the original Cobras that were at the event. Did I miss any?

Thank you for sharing the list of the Cobra CSX numbers and for noting the photos were from BILL COOK!
Bill takes some great photos and should get our sincere thanks for sharing them!

By chance, did anyone take several pictures of the W. white 1966 GT350 under the bleachers during concours judging? specifically looking for several engine bay shots. Unfortunately, I was there but participating in the track experience didn't have time to go over. Thank you for pics in advance. TY, Fred
