    Not yet. We are flying out to Vegas in about a week. Shelby American is having a post SEMA car show. So we will get to drive it around Vegas and have it at the show. Then she will get a few finishing touches before being shipped home!

    Hard to believe this all started February 2018. Flying out to Vegas in the morning to see the car for the absolute first time. Kinda crazy like the day would never come! Hopefully get lots of pictures and some initial driving impressions! Probably want sleep much tonight! Lol......,

    Well, looking at the photos you posted, I am not sure how you had the patience. Awesome build, wish I could have done something like that, sadly, no such mids available Down Under.

    I luv the fat arse on that thing.

    Gratz Mate, enjoy her, absolutely beautiful car :)

    Cheers,
    Beano

    PS: Expecting an update, seeing how you are not sleeping anyway, haha
