Hi All, As the newly appointed QLD State Shelby Rep, I recently attended the  Shelby Nationals held in conjunction with the Victorian State Concours on Oct 21st.

Upon arriving at the grounds at Dandenong, I met up with Nez Demaj, the Australian Shelby Registrar, and also my South Australian counterpart Fred Pascale.

We were soon helping Nez park the record breaking gathering (for Australia and New Zealand) of 28 Shelbys into two neat rows amongst the 500 Mustangs entered in the Vic Concours.

It was fitting that the previous number of 22 Shelbys was bettered, given we saw the passing of Carroll Shelby earlier this year at the age of 89 and the Shelby marque celebrating 50 years.
A few of the highlights for me were the presence of a 427 Shelby Cobra and a 65 Shelby Mustang with race history back to 74, plus a 66 Hertz Renta-Racer fitted with a Paxton Supercharger.
The hospitality shown to us from Nez and the Victorian Mustang Club was much appreciated and we even managed to win a very nice bottle of Yarra Valley bubbly at the Sunday night Presentation Dinner to which Colleen attended with me.

We both commented on what a great time we had. (The food was delicious!)

Nez spoke of his passion for all things Shelby and the benefits of Shelby owners being a part of the Australian Shelby Registry.

Would also like to thank Tony, Kim and Brett from SA for getting Fred and myself to and from the venue. I won't forget that traffic light blast in a twin turbo V8 Merc SUV in a hurry! Can't wait for the next Shelby Nationals!

So to all you Shelby owners here in QLD feel free to drop me a line for a chat about our chosen interest.

Until then, Cheers all
Darryll Ashby
QLD Shelby Rep
