Want to pretend you're in the drivers seat? Here's a different 66 Shelby with a camera mounted during the racing action!

You rarely see a vintage racer as nice as "Mellow Yellow". There are no creature comforts in the interior so it wouldn't be an ideal grocery-getter. But - if you are looking to add a real 66 Shelby GT350 to your vintage racing collection, save up. This particular one sold for $160K.
