  We went to the annual event at the Boulder Shelby American Collection. I have pictures and wanted to load them to a site for you all to see.

What is a good site for me to use?

Upload them to Flickr. I use it and have never had any problems hotlinking to other sites/forums.

I always wanted to go see that Bolder event.  Maybe next year.  Was there lots of dope being smoked in the neighborhood? Hysterical

It is typically a natural high with no pharmaceutical help needed being in the presence of such a fantastic collection of historical significant Shelby cars and memorabilia . Party on

Well then, things must have changed in Bolder since I was around there during and after college, I figured the pot heads were even thicker with legal dope, and not sniffing Shelby exhaust..........must be more powerful than I knew! HeadSpin

There were many more very nice cars. Next year I'll do a better job at getting pictures of cars parked outside.

Here is a link to the Bolder Shelby Museum Annual Event and Car Show.

Frank,
   Looked like a good time. I see a lot of cars from the Miller collection in there too. I'm gonna have to make it out there one year for that event (or at least to see the museum). Thanks for sharing your photos.

I heard the track in Utah was costing the Miller family $4million+ per year to keep open. After Larry passed the family decided to give the track to the city and a lot more of the cars were loaned to Boulder.

Thanks for sharing! Its always neat to see photos of the latest cars on display in the Museum.

(Here's my usual question) Does anyone know the VIN of the '67 Shelby in white with the blue lemans stripes and 10-spokes/Goodyears?
There's no side stripes to tell us the model and is a bit weathered. There must be a good story behind it to be on display in the museum.

Dave - My son was trying to figure out how one person (Miller) could have ended up with so many important cars.
Hope all is well in VA.

Money was the biggest factor IMO. Boulder museum advisers /restorer and their network were the other IMO.
