    It's one of those movies that got a round of applause at the end.
    You were right. We saw it this afternoon and really enjoyed it.

    This was parked in our town square away from other vehicles
    Could smell the “ NEW” the closer we got. Eye candy extreme as H noticed all the carbon fiber across the road
    Saw the movie a few weeks back and thought it
    was well done

    Mustangs

    We had a bbq lunch ride a few weeks back and the San Antonio Shelby Mustang club rolled in as we were finishing up. I counted 15 Cobras with markings... others were in stealth mode but had all the logo
    somewhere. No doubt part of the Terlingua Ranch crowd.

    My few of my friends in the ADV Maine riders group went to see Dave's amazing BMW motorcycle collection yesterday. He has runners from every year from the first at least somewhere n the 80's and was only missing one or two years when I was there. Some absolutely incredible machinery. I got my buddy to send a pic of the custom paintwork he had put on as the new GT is actually 44" high and not 40". He even sent me an ADV salute.

But years later Mr. Shelby began hosting Cobra rallies at Lajitas, Texas, about ten miles west of the Terlingua ghost town. Even after his death the rallies have continued with car-type field events and drag races on the Terlingua airport runway. Also they do some timed speed runs on TX Hwy 118 south of Alpine (which runs past our house). Every year we get 40 or so Cobra Mustangs of all ages here to participate. They are fun to watch.


    One of the great things about "Ford versus Ferrari" was the spotlight it put on the late, great Phil Remington (who continued to work on the cutting edge of high performance racing cars until he was in his nineties. It was Phil who designed and built the replaceable brake assemblies for the GT40. Shelby always maintained that they won LeMans on brakes, not engines.

    Another sidebar for those willing to dig is the story of Jack and Lucian Harbuck of Harbuck Brothers Automotive in Dallas. When I was a youngish gearhead in Dallas in the mid-sixties it was a given in Texas that Jack and Lucian had probably forgotten more about extracting horsepower from a Ford V8 than the rest of us put together would ever know. Carroll Shelby was no stranger to their shop.
