the car sold for $600,000. The car on the show was a mule. The winner gets the car of their choice, signed by Shelby, and Edsel Ford. The winner, also, won a tool box with matching VIN # of the car, signed, as well. The car looked awesome up there. All the money raised, went to the Shelby Children Foundation. The winner, also, receives a tour of the SVT facilities. Maybe that is a sign?

I guess for the cause it was a good thing. I hope that does not put a selling price on the retail end of it. Right before Edsel and Carol got out of the Cobra, the announsers were talking about the First Ford GT auction pulled in $500k. I watched it for a while after, A few other shelby's came up for auction and Carol shelby was even offering to autograph the car. :thumbsup:
