We have seen most of these cars at the Ford-sponsored Track Attack and they are fabulous additions to the Shelby American Collection which we have also visited and highly recommend to any Shelby enthusiast.

Are they going to have enough room what with current displays? Is the museum going to build a new wing or just rotate others out?

I'm glad they are doing this and not liquidating the collection.

Heard from a reliable source the plan is to build a museum in Salt Lake City and eventually move everything back

That doesnt even list P103  and P104  which are getting maintenance.  Combine this two with CSX2299  and you have the Podium for the first Daytona 24 Hr race

Yes they are thinking about but last we heard from Mr Miller ,  they just want to warehouse the cars for now and maintain them in storage
