07 SHELBY and I have compared our SVT Engine Niche Plates to find that one of the mechanics worked on both of our engines. How about everyone post the names on their Shelby's Niche Plate on this thread so we can see who built whose engines. One of mine was hard to read, do the best you can!

My Niche Plate:

Gary Smith and J. Donovan

I found out on the Romeo trip that the J. stands for Jim! Both of my guys had retired before we got there!

Greetings all! You guys got me to thinking with this thread so I checked the engines on my Snakes. Doug Campbell was one of the builders of my '98 Cobra's engine! 9 years later and still turning wrenches on the Romeo Line, pretty cool!:cool:

OK, we aren't getting much support on my thread here! What's up with that? I sure would like to get a better feel for how the teams are put together! Here are the reported teams so far:

Gary Smith & J. Donovan
Gary Smith & Doug Campbell
Mel Darrington & Paul Weis
Larry Niahiou & Mel Darrington

Spelling could be off on a couple of those.

Anyone else?

I was looking at 07 SHELBY's thread about the Romeo trip and he mentioned that there were only 8 niche mechanics, so we have all but two names I guess.

Just looked at mine and it's signed by what looks like Ronald Anderson and Stephen Fae. Could these be the missing 2?

Sounds as though there has been a turnover at Romeo for the Way Forward.:( What does this mean for Romeo in the Spring and meeting with the builders of our motors. 07 maybe you can let know who is still working at the plant and who has taken the early out.
