I just saw this in the news...not sure if anyone else has posted this elsewhere on the board (and apologies if so). The Shelby Daytona Coupe (my favorite car of all time) was just named the first inductee of the relatively recent National Historic Vehical Association (HVA)!

 

"Set up for the "celebration and preservation of national automotive heritage", the HVA has just announced its first inductee: the 1964 Shelby Daytona Coupe. Designed by Peter Brock and now entering its 50th year, the Daytona Coupe has all the hallmarks of a historically-significant vehicle. It's a race-winner for a start, and not just any race winner--it helped secure the International Manufacturer's GT Championship in 1965, making Shelby the first American manufacturer to win an international race series."

Shelby is first again!
