The SHELBY AMERICAN
The SHELBY AMERICAN
The magazine of the Shelby American Automobile Club
ON THE COVER. The Peter Brock-
designed Shelby DeTomaso P70 is one
of the most beautiful cars we have ever
seen.When we caught wind that owner
Mark Moshayedi would have the
freshly restored car at the 2016 Amelia
Island Concours we had to be there to
see it. Peter Brock was also there,
walking around clucking like the
proud rooster he had every right to be.
We took plenty of pictures and we in-
vited several other SAAC members
who were attending the event to take
some pictures that would fit our verti-
cal format requirement. We hadn’t
planned on a “cover contest” but that’s
what happened. They were all worthy
but we could only use one, so we just
covered our eyes and chose.
