    Went to vegas for my college grad and 21st birthday.
    Got to take a 2015 Aston Martin Vantage GT out on the track, very fun!

    Anyways, thought I'd share some pictures I took, everyone loves pictures.

    This is "the one". The first shelby cobra. It has many different colours underneath because shelby would let the media test drive the car. Each time it returned he would paint it a different colour so it appears he had many of the cars. Shelby America values this car at 26 million because that's what they've been offered for it.

    I will never forget the day I saw an jag XJ220 for the first time. I knew what it was immediately because a friend collected diecast cars and had one we always admired. Up till that day I thought it was more of a concept car then production so you can imagine my surprise that I saw it on the road. I know it sounds crazy but around barret Jackson week you are able to see damn near any car you ever imagined going home from the auction.

    I've been to the shelby front office/museum, but we never were there in time for the factory tour. Would be cool to see.....
