I believe if it's a true super snake, Mr. Shelby does have some sort of hand in it.

Who cares??? It was the first pic that came up when I googled 1967 Shelby GT500. I don't care if it looks like Eleanor from Gone in 60 Seconds or not, I want one.

Yeah its a clone remake and Shelby got sued by Halicki's widow for using the Elenor name on the car. It's a clone from Gone in 60 seconds 2000 car. It has nothing in common with the real 67 Shelby.

A lot of people seem to think the remake car had something to do with the cars Carrol built back in the day but they don't.

No need to get mildly upset.

I was just pointing out it was not a 67 Shelby GT 500 is all.

Either way, the clones are not it. If you are going to copy a one off car then do it right. Don't do it like a movie's idea of what it would look like.

The Daytona is a super sweet car! If you ever get a chance to see the Carrol Shelby documentary it shows how that car came to be. Soom really cool engineering by him.

Guy was a straight genius, no doubt. I saw part of that documentary. My neighbors have a modern shelby mustang, and even that is pretty cool.
