"Once the smoke cleared from all the rubber being heated excessively, I walked over to meet Guy. Got a couple of pictures here, and in both pics you'll notice that tire marks on the street.

I guess there was also a photographer out there with Drive Magazine which was doing some piece on Guy. So if interested you could keep your eyes open for that."
The Shelby Mustang is a high performance variant of the Ford Mustang. From 1968 the model became the Shelby Cobra GT.
