The SHELBY AMERICAN
Spring 2016 26
Was it the pink Shelby t-shirt or the
young model that caught Roger Mor-
rison’s attention? He spotted this on
the Petersen Store’s website.We’re not
sure they sold many pink ones to the
males in their client base but they
would make nice gifts for wives,
daughters or girlfriends.
Doug Cresanta is another one of these
guys who is like a magnet to Shelby
and Cobra stuff. We’re at a loss to ex-
plain why this happens to some people
and not others. This car wash is lo-
cated in Indian Harbour Beach,
Florida. The Cobra comes up on a
large outdoor screen using HD TV
about every minute. That logo looks fa-
miliar. Isn’t Ocean Spray the brand
name of a cranberry juice?
We’re not sure if we can bestow the
title of eagle eye on Marty Beaulieu of
Atherton, California for spotting this
5-story high billboard in San Fran-
cisco advertising the new Shelby
GT350R. Unless your eyes were locked
on your iPhone as you were walking
down the street you couldn’t miss it.
He said it was right across the street
from the Mini dealer. Wouldn’t that be
the equivalent of bullying a weakling?
Should be an interesting batch of cars
at the Quail Lodge show at Monterey
this coming August. At least, that’s
what they are trying to solicit.
Rand’s Custom Hats has an interesting blog and they invite their customers
to send in photos. This one had no caption so we have no idea who’s car it is or
where the photo was taken (although it’s just a guess, but it’s not New Jersey).
The photo was sent to Howard Pardee by his pal Jim MacDonald of Mill Creek,
Washington, probably as much to highlight the Cobra as it was to needle
Pardee about his choice of headgear. Be assured it ain’t a Rand Custom hat.
