JJ,
I will try to keep you up to date while I am out there.I made up a bracket to hold my video cam from the windshield.I am going to video out on Las Vegas Speedway and the run from L.A. to Vegas.I got a PM from Amy Boylan last night and my Shelby came in.It's at Shelby Autos in Vegas inside the shop.That's great as my nerves are a little frazzled.Giving the keys up to the truck driver was like giving one of my kids to a stranger.:eek:
