Hi Howard,
This is Tom from the Bridgehampton Motoring Club. I just discovered your website here. Great stuff!
I went to the Vanderbilt Cup Races this past sunday. Very cold but a nice day indeed. I believe I spotted your GT350. It looked great. It’s been awhile and I did not spot you around the car though.
This site is great and I will have to spend some time looking through it all.
Tom M.

Hi Tom:

Thanks for the comment.

I had both my 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350H and its 40th anniversary tribute car, the 2006 Shelby GTH, at this fun event. I am sorry that I missed you. Likely, I was inside the Nassau Museum of Art at my exhibit “Treasures of the Vanderbilt Cup Races”. I did get to do a demonstration run with “Shelby” for the fifth consecutive year.

Hope to talk to you soon!
