Well we have to start some time soo "Merry Christmas".
The Shelby Club sent this to me so I would like to share it with you guys!



A Visit from Racer Nicholas (author unknown)



'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the valley,

Not a sports car was stirring, not even a Ferrari.

The stockings were hung on the garage door with care,

In hopes that Hot Nick soon would be there.



The kiddies were nestled all snug in their beds,

While Alfas and Jaguars raced in their heads;

Mom in her goggles and I in beret,

Had tucked in the Allard, and then hit the hay.



When out on the road there arose such a clatter,

I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.

Expecting to see a Mercedes roar by,

We raced to the window, my dear wife and I.



The moon on the chrome of her baby Alfo,

Gave the brightness of noonday to objects below.

When what should my wondering eyes betray,

But eight tiny MGs, pulling a sleigh.



With a small hero driver so steady and quick,

I knew in a moment it must be Hot Nick!

More rapid than Grand Prix his little fleet came,

And he poured on the coal as he called them by name.



"Now KA, now PB, now KN and TD,

On VA, on TF, on NA and TC;

To the top of the turn, keep away from the wall,

Now dash away, dig out, and change cogs all!"



Like Ascari and Fangio fighting a duel,

They broadslid the driveway and turned on the fuel;

Up to the garage where they braked to a stop,

The sleigh full of goodies with Santa on top.



The sleigh was aluminum - Ghia design;

In British Racing Green, it really looked fine.

The badge bar up front stood out clear and bold,

The collection of badges a sight to behold.



He was dressed up all in Italian Race Red,

From the tip of his toes to top of his head;

A bundle of speed parts he had on his back,

And he chuckled with glee as he opened his pack.



His eyes, how they sparkled, like a spinning Rudge wheel,

His beard was the silver of machine-tooled steel;

With a little round face and a chubby waist line

That shook when he laughed like that Bugatti of mine.



He started his task without saying a word,

The idling exhausts were all that was heard.

Wire wheels for Junior, to fit his TD,

Hood strap and windscreens for Allard and me.



Some paint for the Mustang, marked "Ford Racing Blue",

Castrol, a blower, and dual carbies, too;

The last thing he left was the best that could be,

A year's "Road and Track" for the family and me.



He jumped to the sleigh and gave his commands,

Then away they all flew like the start at Le Mans,

And I heard him exclaim as he quickened the pace,

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good race!

Merry Christmas to all but 2006 will be hard to beat after taking delivery of my Shelby, although 2007 will be the official year of the new Shelby.:) Happy New Year to all.

Santa is suppose to be bringing me a JLT intake... and a few other goodies :) Only 3 days away to see what the man in the red suit has in his bag for me.

Merry Christmas to all, I hope everyone gets what they want... and if your waiting for your car it will be worth the wait... in fact for me the thrill of the hunt although was a roller coaster at times will be something I never forget... most of the excitement was cause by 07 Shelby (thank you) and all the updates.... for those of you who lived through it... wasn't it great...for the others well I can say it was something fantastic never to be duplicated again :(

Merry Christmas to all and all your families. Be safe a new year is coming and big great things for all of us :)

Its Christmas Day in NZ and all is well.

merry Xmas to all Shelby Gt500 owners and (like me) waiting list owners. From all I read I can only say that the wait will be worth it.
I was in Las Vegas early this month and went out to Shelby Autos. I don't know if I am letting the side down but I am getting a 40th Anniversary package on my GT500.

Anyway may 2007 bring you all you hope for and more.

Merry Christmas everyone. I was hoping to get a VIN for Christmas, but it didn't happen.

Unfortunately, the blizzard that blew through Denver really messed up our holiday plans. Our flight was cancelled, so we were not able to fly out to California to visit my brother. :mad: :(

Best wishes to all!
