In Vegas for a conference this week, so I took a quick field trip down to Shelby. You can do a self guided tour for free, but I paid for the guided tour, which in addition to a great guide who knew Caroll since the 70s, you also get a gift bag (pint glass, hat, coin, bag, etc ). The guide had some good stories. He was impressed when he asked how the GT350 was named that the only one who could answer was 'the guy in the suit,' so I was glad i could entertain him. Btw I didn't win a prize for that.

Here are some pics. The #5 Aston Martin is from Ford vs Ferrari and is on a miata chasis. Anyway if you have not been there and get the chance, I highly recommend it.

The guided tour used to be free........but you didn't get the goody bag, so I gets its swings and roundabouts.

For me, SA is the best attraction in Vegas!

Same here. I would never come to Vegas on purpose, but since I did have to come here, SA was 1st on the list. Not much else here of interest to me.

Vegas holds a special place in my heart, but only because it hosted (one of) the 50th Anniversary Celebrations. For a Brit, I was in Mustang heaven..........the place was overrun with them. My wife thought it funny that I'd stare out of our hotel (The Luxor) window at the traffic, as every other car was a Mustang :crackup:

I took my wife there a couple of years ago as we were looking for something different to get a way from the casino's for a while. We did the guided tour which was free at the time and she said it was one of the best things we've ever done down there. It was such a cool experience!

I went there in April, was a fun little trip to check out. Spent too much $$$ on Shelby swag though!

The "strip" location is much easier to get to, and is a MUCH more visitor friendly facility than the former LVMS location. For sure a must see, when in Vegas. One of the best things in Vegas, especially as the Imperial Palace car museum is long gone.

I was there in 19’. Great place to visit. After the tour I was talking to one of the employees about the Shelby GLH-S I saw in the shop. It belonged to one of the managers who brought me over for a closer look. Unfortunately this was the only pic I took.

Cool pics, and a trip I'd like to repeat since the only time I was there was during SEMA 2004.
On a different note, that isn't a GLH-S, but a Shelby Dodge Shadow CSX
