My Shelby Ford

In 1973 someone in my high school owned a Ford Shelby Cobra GT 350. I was walking around the car admiring it and as I came to the back of the car I noticed the letters SHELBY. I turned to my friend and said if I ever had a child I would name them Shelby.

Seven years later I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and named her SHELBY. Shelby was engaged this week to her boyfriend Greg. Our Families are very happy and excited. We all knew this was meant to be the day they met because Greg’s last name is FORD. So after 30 years I will have my own Shelby Ford.
Thank You for taking the time to read our story.
PS If you know of anyone in the area with a Ford Shelby we would love to have some engagement photo’s taken of Shelby and Greg with a Ford Shelby Mustang.

There's no "marketing" in the drop-down menu, so I chose "convenience" somewhat arbitrarily.  I'm a long-time Ford fan, and so I like to see Ford succeed.  When I visit a Ford dealer's parts department, I'm itching to buy something for my Fords (usually Mustangs).  Outside of license plate frames and T-shirts, there's not much.  Why not floor mats, decals, shift nobs, seat covers?  Make it a profit center.  Maybe more sophisticated items that the dealer could install?  Wheels, catback exhaust, running boards, etc.  They needn't all be on stock (but as many as possible).  Maybe there could be a glossy Ford Accessories catalogue in store, with convenient ordering.  It could be like visiting a Auto Zone, only everything would be Ford, Mustang, Shelby, F150, Fiesta, Focus (etc.) oriented (and branded).  I'd have a hard time resisting Ford brand aftermarket products.  I think this would make a ton of money based on impulse buying, and it would be a place I would want to visit over and over.
