Adam was wandering around the wonderful Shelby Heritage Center and speaking to people as he does, one of those guys he was speaking to was called Vince Laviolette. It turns out that Vince is the Senior Designer in the Research & Development department for Shelby American Inc. Adam mentioned that he had a few Shelbys and we were given unprecedented access to the behind the scenes workshops and cars that the public don’t get to see. Obviously photos were restricted, but what an incredible experience to be given the guided tour around the facility. We would like to thank everybody at Shelby Heritage Center for their extraordinary hospitality and making our visit something never to be forgotten. Thanks Guys.
There is the odd Cobra lurking about that is being made from the original tooling that will cost the best part of $250,000 if you want one. These new-old cars are old style bodywork with the engine and transmission to fit a budget. They will have airbags for safety and all sorts of modern-day comforts!
We started yesterday with the newer models, so now it’s time to show some of these unmistakable classic cars.
At the end there is a chance to spend your cash and by some merchandise, or even buy a car if your wallet will stretch that far!
Such beautiful cars!
Tomorrow we hopefully will have some pics from the first day of SEMA 2015 for you once we had sorted them out.
