be parked on the up-hill and down-
hill, and it would also have been too
much of a hike for people to make to
see every car. It ended up being an
amazing display as two rows of cars
(and sometimes three) parked nose to
tail filled the entire front straight.
The concours was set up in the hot
pits which ran along the side of the
track’s tower at the start/finish line.
The judges appreciated the asphalt,
instead of having to roll around on
grass or gravel. There were five Sur-
vivor cars entered and we consider
these important because so many cars
continue to be restored that those just
getting involved in the hobby, first-
time owners, have no accurate point of
reference as to what the cars looked
like when they were originally deliv-
ered to Shelby dealers. All they see are
cars that have been restored.
A special Sunday barbecue lunch
was scheduled for the 37 special
The SHELBY AMERICAN
Summer 2016 105
Shelby American brought a couple of
transporters full of cars, including
CSX2000, which was parked in back and
lost amid the newer iron.
