We will be able to include them in the "Carroll Shelby Cobra Cup" as an event!
Carroll Shelby’s first race car, a 1949 MG TC, heads back to auction -
Before Texan Carroll Shelby built the Shelby Cobra or helped Ford to defeat Ferrari at Le Mans (and Sebring and Daytona, for those keeping score), he was a racer who competed at the highest levels of motorsport. A heart condition ended his driving career in 1960, after just nine amazing seasons behind the wheel. Next January, the car that began the legend of Carroll Shelby as a driver, a 1949 MG TC, will once again cross the block, and Barrett-Jackson hopes the car will sell for more than the $313,500 (including buyer’s fees) realized when the roadster crossed its stage in 2008. - See more at: http://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/2014/10/27/carroll-shelbys-first-race-car-a-1949-mg-tc-heads-back-to-auction/?refer=news#sthash.bp5shUU8.dpuf

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the biggest story in the GPU industry over the last year has been over what isn’t as opposed to what is. What isn’t happening is that after nearly 3 years of the leading edge manufacturing node for GPUs at TSMC being their 28nm process, it isn’t being replaced any time soon. As of this fall TSMC has 20nm up and running, but only for SoC-class devices such as Qualcomm Snapdragons and Apple’s A8. Consequently if you’re making something big and powerful like a GPU, all signs point to an unprecedented 4th year of 28nm being the leading node.
We start off with this tidbit because it’s important to understand the manufacturing situation in order to frame everything that follows. In years past TSMC would produce a new node every 2 years, and farther back yet there would even be half-nodes in between those 2 years. This meant that every 1-2 years GPU manufacturers could take advantage of Moore’s Law and pack in more hardware into a chip of the same size, rapidly increasing their performance. Given the embarrassingly parallel nature of graphics rendering, it’s this cadence in manufacturing improvements that has driven so much of the advancement of GPUs for so long.
