Hi All,

I guess this would be every Mustang lovers dream to expereince the Shelby GT in real.I not only got watch it live but what i saw was a wonder it was Ford Shelby GT-Tribute Series to Snake series.There are only 2 such Tribute series made as tribute to Shelby GT-Snake series made in 1965 i guess.
It was such a eye catcher.I could cpature the pics like a professional but still something i wanted to share with you guys specially.

Thanks
Mohan

I first saw this car in Houston during one of my visits in 1997, Then I saw her GONE IN 60 SECONDS & she left me salivating. I have just one dream before I die, to sit behind the wheel of this beast & hear her engines purrrr.

Wonderful pictures from the show. Thanks for the treat. I was always wondering what those 2 things are in the bonnet (circled in red)? I used to drive a 2007 Ford Mustang AT & was blown away by its luxury, gives me an illusion as though I drive a huge monster that occupies more than a lane. The acceleration was really awesome & it even saved me from a near to death experience caused by an 18 wheeler.

Those hood pins were used a long time ago - probably in high speed drag racing - to prevent the hood from flying up and blinding the driver. You may ask, isn't that the purpose of the stock hood latch? I am guessing the musclecar racers of yesteryears had good reason not to trust the stock latch.

Nowadays, those hood pins are used only for appearance.
