It's not every day you walk past a '67 Shelby GT 500 in Ireland, i can tell you.

Yesterday i was the Phoenix Park car races we have every year (held in a huge public park, right in the center of Dublin -amazing show to catch if your ever over this side of the pond)

So anyway, i was walking through the pit area between races when i spotted this. I actually walked right passed it -i thought i was seeing things. The obvious clone question must be raised but i know Kelsey Hayes Mag stars dont grow on trees, and everything else looked right.

Not only is this the first (and probably LAST) Shelby ive ever seen here, but the first OTHER 67/8 Mustang apart from my own. Funny thing is i wasnt interested much in the car,
i took a few shots and walked away. Given the rest of the entertainment on offer, the Shelby was doomed as an attention grabber ::

( demonstration run by the 1999 Ferrari F1 car that Michael Schumacher won the championship in;
there's not a mustang on earth that can compete with the ferocious roar off that V10 - even
under braking - a sight and sound to behold ::)

Some other stuff you dont see every day here - Ferrari Enzo, 427 Cobra Clone (right hand drive) Some racing too - but who was watching? ::

It's not too often that I see one in the states!

Years ago, the gas station I use to go to, the owner use to have a 70 GT500 convertable. this was in the early 90's. I've moved from that area but I think the guy still owns it, and he's owned it for a very long time!
