I'm sure quite a few of you are also into watches.  Here is a cool website showing some Rolex watches worn by CS and some of the drivers who put Shelby American on the map.  Is there anything cooler than a Paul Newman Daytona?  Party on

In keeping with the 'Rolex' and 'Shelby' theme of this thread, I stumbled upon a Rolex website page about Jean Claude Killy.  Killy is currently on the board of Directors for Rolex (Gee, that would be nice), but back in the day he was the consummate french playboy, living the real life that Robert Redford portrayed in the 1969 movie, "Downhill Racer"(sort of).   He hung around with the likes of Carroll Shelby and Steve McQueen.  There is a pretty well known picture of him posing next to a '67 GT500 back in March of '67 when he visited the Riverside Racing School.  It's been mentioned here on the forum before, but has anyone actually tried to id the Shelby Number of this car?
