The SHELBY AMERICAN
Summer 2016 22
Ted Warren was catching a little early morning TV before starting his day
when a red Cobra stopped his clock. That happens when you’re not expecting
to see anything. The local ABC news feed was covering the Red River Street
Rod Show at Shreveport, Louisiana’s Boomtown Casino that was taking
place that weekend. Guess you know where Warren went.
Barranger saw this sign in a gift
shop which might be appropriate for
the door between your garage and
your house. Maybe retirement was
appropriate: this is pretty weak.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen
Shelby work gloves. Just about
every time we go into a Lowe’s or
Home Depot we can’t help spotting
the rack of them. And they have a
dozen different models. In an “aw
shucks, I need a pair of gloves any-
way” moment, Barranger walked
out with a pair. We wonder what
percentage of sales purchases like
this account for?
You can never tell what will pop up on your computer screen when you
Google “Shelby.” Barranger found this letter opener from the General Grand
High Priest name Shelby. We’re not sure what the title refers to but as soon
as Pardee saw it he reportedly went out and had new business cards made.
This ad for flooring treatment was
appears off to a good start. He’s al-
ready smacking the other eagle eyes
Young spotted this ad in Road & Track
and homed in on the Shelby.
This pricey indoor garden sculpture
caught Young’s attention on the In-
ternet. It is 9-inches high and made
of reconstituted sandstone. Pricey?
How about $450. Don’ look for one
at Young’s place.
Warren spotted these pictures on
Facebook. The sentiment makes per-
fect sense to us.
