Apologies for the duplicative pics (not sure what happened). I have more, but the post sideways.

They also have a bunch of USRRC and other racing Cobra. Will post if there is interest.

Yes. Only open on Saturday from 10am - 4pm. I wasn't expecting so many GT40s. Many, many Cobra's and a lot of Shelby racing stuff there. Cool place to spend a couple of hours.

I can't seem to view these photos enough...very addicting. Thanks for posting these Ron!

I apparently have a new bucket list place to visit. :cool:
 
gawd, as awesome as it is (and it is!)
all of those incredible cars in one building just reflect how totally out of circulation these cars are
these are the cars which we saw, and heard!, which really have motivated us all to this day

They are time capsules. Id personally prefer to see them out and about, but quite the collection all in one place. I took a bunch of detail pics for my Cobra and GT40 builds.

On a different, but interesting note, I was talking to Jay Cushman the other day and he said...

“Not sure how many more parts I’ll make; they (GT40s) have all been restored”
 
Ron, thanks for posting your photos. When I was there over ten years ago I got chased away from taking a pic of MKII P1015 with my throw away camera. Almost as cool as the cars are the original molds and parts along the walls. It's especially fun for me to see the great shots you took of GT103 (#73) wearing the light covers I made for its restoration before the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours.

Mark,
I was prepared for a "no photography" policy, but they were pretty cool about it. That day about 100 folks came in during the couple of hours I was there.

Talking about cool things on the wall...
