Concepts. They are interesting vehicles that serve one purpose, to grab attention and look cool at 5mph. Usually when they live out their life on the show circuit, they are cut up and sent to the crusher. Every once in a while, though, one escapes the watchful eye of top management, as is the case with this Shelby Street Fighter Rampage concept. If this were any other Shelby, it would have been snatched up and restored right down to the factory chalk marks, and then sold at Barrett Jackson for an ungodly amount of change. Chrysler Shelbys though are the under dogs of the brand, and don't get the much deserved attention thier Ford brethren do. That's not to say no one has tried to buy it. It's just that the yard won't let it go because it doesn't have the paperwork to go with it. Still, it's worth pursuing. With Carroll gone, every Shelby from here on out may have his name on it, but it won't have his design input, and the fact that Shelby himself spent so much time with this car both designing and showing it makes it extra unique.

I wish I had a magic fairy to pull auto paperwork out of its ass, 'cause I love odd, I love Mopar, and I love Shelby Mopars in particular, so this would be just the sort of oddity I'd love to have the chance to get my hands on.

That's incredible! I hope it's not too late for someone to snatch it from the jaws of the crusher...
