Ok I planned on being in bed by now but my adrenaline is flowing still after this trip.I will post all the videos in this thread.
This is leaving Calico,a ghost town in California.This is the 2nd and final leg of Carroll Shelbys 85th B-day Bull Run.We were doing in excess of 20 MPH.:D This is highly compressed so I could put these on a DVD.This is recorded from inside my Shelby on a windshield mounted videocam........Enjoy................


Man, I am going to be tired again tomorrow;)

Very nice, that was ghost town for sure. When you were getting on it the exhaust sounded great. The blue shelby in front of you was getting on it from the stop sign, you needed to run him down and show him who was boss :)

Wish I could have been there, but only if I had my beast.

I know a lot of these people that were on the Bull Run.I spent 5 days with the Blue Shelby,it was converted to a 40th anniversary.He is also getting a Super Snake.Nice guy,didn't want to cause any accidents.Him and I ran a couple times in Scottsdale,we had a lot of fun.Bill we already know the red 1 is the fastest.:D Prez you would have loved his Shelby.:D

I can't be completely sure, but I believe you may have exceeded the speed limit once or twice. Shame on you. :D

Fred:
Hope you enjoyed our nice weather while you were in Scottsdale. A cold snap came through yesterday and temps dropped down in the 30's last night with a high today of only 54.

The wife and I were at the BJ on Sunday.

This is part 4 and the end of the 2nd leg leaving Calico,Ca.Then there is the 1st session of the 1.1 mile,9 turn course on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Nice! That looked like it was a blast! Too bad you had some folks in front of you on the track. I seemed like they slowed you down quite a bit. I wish there were turning and apex cones set up on our public highways. It would make driving through the twisties much easier. :D

I had 6 days of adventure.I really enjoyed the track sessions.They did slow me down but you were going a lot faster than it looks on the video.:D
