I’m glad you got to do the tour and enjoyed it. I have a buddy who did it a while back and also had a good experience.

I’m a little surprised they still do them, given that they must be grossly understaffed. I called out there a couple weeks ago to speak to someone about potentially sending a car out to them for conversion and they totally blew me off, and not in a respectful manner. Told me not to rely on any posted pricing because by the time they could get around to it things would have changed dramatically. Basically discouraging me from even thinking about it. I don’t know why they even bothered to answer the phone. All they said may be true but it can be stated in a way that isn’t offensive.

Did they still have the full motion simulator setup? I set the lap record last time I went, right before COVID.

Meeting Parnelli Jones at Shelby American (I'm the ugly one on the right) was probably the highlight for me :)

That's pretty cool you got to meet him. Btw. Just noticed the shirt you are wearing. That is great! I should get one for my Lotus driving friend. It might help to convert him.

Our 60th Anniversary Shelby American coffee is now also available at the store there. Pick up a bag when you're there (or on our website).

Does it have the aroma of burned rubber and taste like victory? If not, I dont want it.

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.

I just ordered a bag of this and one of the non-anniversary blended ones. Better taste like victory, or I will not be happy.

I did not see it.

Damn, it was a super cool setup. I've got a full cockpit at home but not motion so it was fun to try out.

I would have seen that for sure if it were still there...btw, the employee watching you looks either concerned or pissed... did you break it?
