Shelby Museum

The twins are obsessed with vehicles and have a high-stakes "dibs" war on sports cars. They literally shout "DIBS!" every 10 seconds or less every time we are in the minivan. Their favorites to collect include Mustangs, Corvettes, Chargers and Challengers, Porsches, old muscle cars, and Ford Raptors (Harrison). Sad is the brother who misses out on a cool car, even though the collection is merely cataloged in their minds.

Anyway, we decided to go to the Shelby factory and museum in Las Vegas.

The factory made Mustangs and Ford Raptors. Harrison was elated.

How pretty are those shiny cars?

I will take this one, please.

Cam and the Ford Raptor.

Harrison and the same truck.

They couldn't believe that this engine fit into that little space.
There was a tour guide who had interesting stories to tell but the boys were not interested in the long-winded tales of Carroll Shelby and Enzo Ferrari and the race for domination. So we ditched the group and did our own thing. We had a great time and got Happy Hour drinks at Sonic on the way home.
