A small group of early GT350 owners from Eastern and Central VA got together today to make a run up Route 6 from Richmond, through Scottsville and up to a section of the Blue Ridge Parkway south of I-64, ending at The Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton VA for lunch. Larry Barnett, Bob Garland, Greg Bradner and Tim Kilinski drove their 66 and 67 GT350s (I just rode along and took pictures this time). Great company, great weather and great food. Thanks to Tim for organizing this.

Great array of Shelbys.  I am biased of course, but I particularly like the red Hertz.  Was that a GPS device on the dash?  Interesting to see plug-in modern technology co-existing with the old tech (and tach).

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

I've driven Rt 6 and Rt 151 in the Afton area so many times. It had to be a blast to do it in a Shelby. Glad you had fun. Great pictures.

Looks like y'all had a great time.

Quick question who owns the Shelby VW ?
Home of the "Amazing Hertz 3 + 1 Musketeers"
I have all UNGOLD cars
I am certainly not a Shelby Expert

HAHA, I didn't actually notice the VW in the photo until I was processing my photos that night (I think it was in Scottsville). It was a poor stand in for my blue/white stripes 66 GT350 I left in the garage that day.......

Isn't "Afton" the name of that Medusa Nightmare that ran Brendon Fraser through the gears in a divorce, practically ruining his life?  Scary name for a town.  I'd steer around that one with my Shelby by reason of the nasty connotation it conjures within me.

Not all Afton towns are bad.  Afton, NY, where my wife mother' family came from originally, has a special industry that we visited years ago:
