The SHELBY AMERICAN
Fall 2015 261
Jay Talbott was reading the MSN.com website and was curious about what the
40 excellent car ads from the swinging sixties
” might contain. His curiosity
turned into surprise, which was followed by satisfaction when the first handful
of ads in the collection turned out to be Shelby-related. We can’t vouch for the
fact that his curiosity ended there, or if he was moved to continue reading about
the hacked passwords on the Ashley Madison website. Naaaahh, not Jay.
We saw a small ad for Car Nut Images that was enough to make us take a look at their website <
www.carnutimages.com >. They offer photographic montages of specific cars, based on photos they
have taken at various vintage races in the northwest. They also do commissions of your own car
from professional photos you supply. They drop the backgrounds out so it’s not possible to tell at
what track the photo was taken so the emphasis is only on the car. Prices aren’t cheap and some
examples are: enlargements (8x10 for $30); prints on canvas (16x20 for $225); metal signs (11x14
for $56) and digital files ($200).We didn’t see any GT350s on their website’s menu but that’s likely
to change following the latest Monterey Motorsports Reunion GT350 celebration.
You can never tell where stuff like this
will turn up. Russ Dickey of Kearney,
Missouri, on vacation at Hilton Head,
South Carolina, spotted this GT40 MK
IV sippy-cup in one of those shops
crammed full of tourist junk. His sons,
7 and 9, were a little too old for some-
thing like this but there were only two
left on the shelf so he convinced his
wife, Sheila, that they could be used
Not much gets past Carl Gagnon of Ft. Meyers,
Florida. As soon as he heard about the recall of
Shelby’s chili mix he sounded the alarm. Shelby sold
his chili company to Kraft back in the late 1980s and
Kraft later sold it to Reily Foods Co. in New Orleans.
They market about twenty different food products.
The recall was set in motion when it was discovered
that one or more spice ingredients, purchased from
a third-party supplier, contained peanut and almond
allergens that are not declared on the label. The re-
call is for the 4-oz. package, UPC #72396-1000.
