  4. Hey everyone

    Last year I held what would be considered the largest GT500 gathering in the state of Florida. We had at one location over 21 SHELBYGT500's and expect over 50 ShelbyGT500's this year.

    Were having our 2nd Annual SHELBYGT500 roundup on 02/24/08 in Oveido Florida.

    Below is a text of what was sent on stangsunleashed now known as Team Shelby, Those with interest either PM me or e-mail me at:

    Announcing the second annual Florida SHELBY GT500 roundup to be held on Feb 24th , 2008. This will be our second event ... the first which is part of this post .... and was a HUGE SUCCESS thanks to YOU who attended and thanks too the vendors who donated prizes and gifts:

    FoMoCo, VMP tuning, Evolution, SAI and lasty Robert and Sharon for attending !!!!!

    More specifics will be forthcoming but it will be held in the same location ( thanks Brad !!! ) along with Justin and VMP tuning and his portable dyno machine.

    We are still working on a vendor list for all the free handouts but I expect for this meeting the following vendors to be in full force for this years event:

    FoMoCo, VMP Tuning, Evolution, JLT, SAI, Stillen, Shelby Performance Parts, Steeda and others

    Last year we had 20 ShelbyGT500's show up and this year we are shooting for over 50 !!!! It ought to be the best turn out any SHELBYGT500 gathering has ever seen. We even had 4 ShelbyGTs show up and they are welcome again !!

    We already have 11 cars confirmed ....along with Justins FRPP TVS blower car and a KB car from Tampa !!

    I will be either using this old thread and possibly a new thread to keep everyone posted. Last year guests will be PM'd and e-mailed.

    This event is not just for Floridians but for everyone. THAT MEANS U PIG

    So ... get the date down ... set aside that weekend ... get your car cleaned .... and get your pretty a** down to Orlando !!!!

    *******Below is the balance of the text written from last year*********

    I with a few other shelby owners are planning a meet and greet here in the sunshine state .. to show off our cars .... to talk mods ... and to get to know one another .... and to discuss the passion that we ALL know we have .. and thats about our cars !

    I would like everyone to respond to my thread who lives in Florida or those who are close enough bye and would want to come down ...

I would also like you to pm me ... with your full name ... and a phone number so we can start planning this event.

    Its in the early stages ... so suggestions are welcomed !

    Lastly I will be refreshing this topic every few days so it will stay at the top ... those who dont post alot will be able to see this thread !

    Thanks for everyones patience !

  10. To All Attendees

    Show will start about 10 am ... 02/24/2008 .. and close down late late afternoon. Its being held in Oviedo Florida ( Orlando )

    Sign up will be from 10am to 12pm .... Free hats and posters will be handed out at the sign in desk compliments of FoMoCo. After you sign in we will have wash stations available but since we are having so many cars we will also have directions on the final e-mail ... the locations of do it yourself car washes nearby. After your car is clean, you'll park it and get it ready for the car show.

    Justin of VMP tuning will also be set up ready to accept any and all who want there car dynoed and or tuned if time permits. Dynoing a car is quicker than tuning it ... tuning takes time which I am not sure if he will have that luxury ...

    We will have food and drinks catered from Sonnys Barbecue so get your appetite in high gear !!

    The car show will begin right after lunch ... numerous awards will be given out for different categories. We all vote and the voting will be explained at the Show.

    We will close by awarding all the car awards and the free gifts and parts that have been generously donated by the following vendors: bowdown.gif

    FoMoCo, Ford Credit, Evolution, VMP Tuning , JLT Perf, Stillen Perf, Lethal Perf, Shelby Perf, Stillen and a new sponser ... Lamotta Perforamce .... out of Longwood .. Thanks Jake !!

    This year we will have several of the vendors bringing trailers to display there products at the show ... you will see all the neat stuff that you can put on your SHELBY to make it go and look faster

    Also Sharon and Robert of TEAM SHELBY should be there and we are expecting a mystery guest that I cant name but this person is alone worth the trip down.

    Through a friend of mine who is also on the forum, he knows Mark Fields of FoMoCo and is asking him to come to our event ! ... He owns a GT500 and has a house on the East Coast of Florida Hell while I am at .. might as well ask Bill and Edsel toooo hysterical2.gif
