SHELBY MANIA! 200x GT500 and GT350 Visit the HQ Heritage Center
The Shelby American HQ plays host to a gathering of hundreds of Shelby Mustangs! It's not every day you see such an incredible display of GT350s and GT500s visiting the Heritage Centre in Las Vegas, and what a sight and sound it is!
Having traveled cross country in my Shelby GT500 on the Where's Shmee: US Edition tour, I became aware of the planned gathering by a number of regional Shelby owners clubs to gather at the weekly Shelby American Heritage Centre's Cars and Coffee and naturally it was crucial to attend and re-visit the same location I had taken my Ford GT on the tour with it in the USA.
With the day very much set up to go with the flow, we set off with my friend @Joseph Gatt and his GT500 as well, to head straight to the gathering to be greeted by huge numbers of Shelbys in a complete array of the colours available. In fact, there are so many cars present it becomes an overflow into the surrounding area, and that's all in addition to the cars being worked on inside.
The Heritage Centre is home to the museum including continuation models of the GT40, Cobra and Dayona Coupe, as well as many of the significant Mustang variations from the years including the first 1967 GT500 Super Snake. Of course it's also an active workshop with various projects and models to explore during a private tour around the building.
As things wind down there are a lot of Mustangs lined up to depart from the event, and despite the odds every single one manages to keep it on the road (JOKE! Don't be triggered) with some incredible sounds to listen over in the process. From there, it's a short hop to lunch for our group before we head towards the Valley of Fire and some of the most incredible scenery of the entire US tour.
Thanks for watching, Tim
