I read on another board that the long lost Shelby Daytona Coup was found i the LA area. It's been in some womens garage for the past 35 years. Anyone hear about this?

Yeah I saw the article in several places. I don't know if people are in shock, or dis-interested, but no one seems to be talking about it...

Those things are so beautiful!
Any ideas what this thing is worth?
$1,000,000 or 1,500,000 maybe even 2,000,000? any ideas?

I would just be happy to see one in real life!

You know I believe that a Daytona coupe that Carroll had to give up to a fellow who extended credit to Carroll sold at last years Montery auctions in Pebble Beach in excess of $4,000,000......Zowieeeeeeeee!!! And then you can add in the sales tax and DMV fees, auction fees and now you have a double zowieeeeeeeeeeee!!! Was it some fellow in Lousiana who bought it??

Actually Alex...a friend of mine, who attended the auction, said that the seller was not Shelby but rather a fellow who had extended credit to Shelby for who knows what and that the car was collateral for the credit. Shelby had to turn the car over to him when he couldn't make the payment on the note. So as I hear it the seller was this guy to recover on the note. Anyway thats what I hear but who the frick knows for sure and I don't think Carroll is gonna tell me anything...LOL!!! Maybe a stipulation was that some of the funds had to go to the foundation.
