Ed- My father and I used to make pilgramages to the old Shelby-American facility on Aviation Blvd in 1964 and 1965. Saw some of the early GT-350s including the R model, plus a bunch of Cobras. The good old days. Dad had a 61 Corvette and since we were obviously car guys, they treated us pretty well.
The street GT-350s, with 306 hp and weighing about 2800 lbs, were very quick. More than a match for the 375 hp Corvettes on the street and the R model with 360 hp was quicker on the track.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
