bonneville Salt Flats rebuild
Diamond Bar, CA (June 24, 2014) - An estimated 2,000 tons of salt were successfully deposited on the mud surface at the end of the access road to the Bonneville Salt Flats.  It was graded and then dried to a hard concrete-like racing surface.  Although modest in scope, the project demonstrates that it should be possible to deposit dry salt in targeted areas so as to help preserve our national treasure, the site where land speed records have been set over the past 100 years. 
 
The project took place over several days in mid-June.  It was organized by the Save the Salt Coalition in coordination with the Southern California Timing Associatio

RENO, Nev. – Planet Shelby Cobra will auction one of the few 2006 Shelby GT-H coupes (Lot #700) owned and used by Shelby American at no reserve during the Barrett-Jackson Hot August Nights auction in Reno, Nevada, which runs July 31-August 2. Documented by the Shelby factory, used frequently by Carroll Shelby and his executives for the past 6 years and with only 500 built, the 2006 GT-H coupe is a highly collectible vehicle and an exciting piece of American history.
“The 2006 Shelby GT-H coupe is a powerful performance vehicle,” said Stephen Becker, president of Planet Shelby Cobra. “Its black exterior is set off with gold ‘Le Mans’ dual racing stripes and ‘Shelby GT-H’ rocker stripes. Ford Racing Performance Group’s Power Pack really kicks up the V-8/Five-speed automatic transmission powertrain. It’s no wonder that Carroll Shelby and his team loved driving this former ‘rent-a-racer’.”
 
The Shelby (CSM06H371) is fitted with a unique front fascia with integrated lower grille, as well as a set of body side scoops. Its 18-inch black aluminum wheels are shod with P235/55ZR18 performance rubber. To put that extra power to the ground, the Shelby GT-H features the F
