The new 2020 GT500 is set to release on January 14, 2019.

Probably not a good time for those in the throws fo winter hell, but great for the defrosted states.

I also find the 10:30 AM tour usually better.  The crowd can vary from twenty to over 40 people with higher counts on Saturdays or if there is a special event in town, like NASCAR.  You might also catch a life radio show:  Rick Titus, Drivers Talk Radio.  Rick is the son of legendary driver Jerry Titus (if you don know his driving abilities in the 65 GT350R racing years, look it up).   He may have some spcial automotive guests that ae quite well known.

Also, there is a live video cam in the museum area so you canveryfy to the members that you are there and not at the gaming tables!  The video cam access is posted on the shops' web site.   Smile and wave!

Fun to watch, new Ford GT on the road.  Doesn't sound like a normal 6 banger!

That's the inherent problem......I don't care about the HP, it still sounds like a Nissan GTR......Carroll Shelby would be
rolling in his grave.

Um, maybe not if he liked the performance and handling.
"shel was involved with the inline 6 Toyota 2000 GT. 
http://japanesenostalgiccar.com/2000gt-when-shelby-raced-the-toyotas/

At the Las Vegas factory, Shelby American while CS was alive came out with the:
Shelby CS6/8 production kit.
Shelby, along with Paxton, also designed a new variant based on the V6 Mustang. Modifications include a supercharged motor producing 350 horsepower (260 kW), 20" wheels bearing the Shelby name and the Cobra moniker on each side and the decklid, a 2" drop in suspension, Baer/Shelby 14-inch front and rear brakes, an aggressive front fascia and a dual exhaust. Shelby also created the CS8, a 4.6-liter V8 variant of the CS6. The Shelby CS6/8 was not available as a factory release. However, Shelby had made the CS6/8 kit available for purchase. But then the contract with Hertz GT-H came, and only a handful of CS6/8' were built, making them one of the rarest cars ever built by Shelby.

Then there were the turbo charged4 cyl Dodge OMNI GLHS

He also raced in lots of 6 cylinder cars: Austin Healy, Masarati, Ferrari and even 4 cylinger MGs. 

CS probably understood the engineering and racing reasons for the twin turbo 6 as he was always interested in new powerplant engineering.  You did know that he built a hydrogen powered Cobra working with USC engineering back in 2004.  The red H2 Cobra was on display ot the Heritage Collection for years until it was sold about two years ago.

No short answers from da portagee Shelby guy!
