    WOW......!

    Definitely geared for LeMans. That was a high fourth gear.

    Kinda missed the corner at the end of the video, wonder if he spun it?

    Good to see it back on the track.
    I saw the cars race at Daytona and Sebring in 65.
    Brings back alot of good times.

    Anyone who wants to see one of the six or so Daytona coupes in existence can come to our Simeone event a couple of weekends from now. The museum has one--cosmetically unrestored--complete with racing battle scars. The plan is to fire up a number of LeMans prototypes. I wouldn't be surprised if the Shelby is one of them.

    Definitely had a moment right at the end there... Wonder if he looped it or just got it dirty.
