Hi Pentaxian friends.

As a follow-up to yesterday's post, here are some pictures of the Mustangs we saw at a gas station off of highway 15, on our way to Las Vegas.

Carroll Shelby is an icon in the Mustang performance world. On January 11th, a group of Shelby owners from Los Angeles drove to Las Vegas to celebrate his 87th birthday. We were lucky enough to be at a gas station when about one hundred of these Mustangs stopped to refuel. Shelby's main goal in life, we were told, has simply been to move faster, whether it was in the airplanes he’s flown or the cars he’s raced. Shelby’s legacy is one defined by the many roles he took in the automotive world and by the legendary high performance Mustangs he created.

Having my Pentax K-7 and my K-x allowed me to capture these wonderful Mustang pictures. I tried to get close to the cars as there were too many distractions in the background. I have never been surrounded by so many nice cars. They were to meet at the Las Vegas race track with more Shelby enthusiasts. What a weekend they must have had!

Thanks for reading,
