Title: Making a contribution
Post by: Coralsnake on January 01, 2019, 12:14:50 PM
...as opposed to just posting ....

Oh well, it's a new year , no time for petty grievances until the next Festivus!

Hey, the new Coralsnake updates are ready. The world's most dynamic Shelby website. Voted the "Best Shelby Website" 19 years in a row!

I have a new dealer article started for Pletcher Ford. I have updated several other dealer articles. Over 30 dealer articles and counting. You won’t find these anywhere else.

Information on the best 1968 Shelbys, EFI, the Green Hornet, Little Red and more. Where else will you find a record of every SAAC Champion since 1997 ?  Who else has covered the most significant history of Shelby engineering cars ?

www.thecoralsnake.com/new (http://www.thecoralsnake.com/new)

I will start work on the April pages asap!

Your data has definitely helped me out over the years. Thank you for your effeorts.

Now let me help you out. The standard aluuminum Festivus pole is only 6 feet in length and is designed for New York winters. You need to get the northern climate extension and the powdered coated applied grip option would also be recommended. You will never get that thing unstuck out of the glacier if you don't. Not until August or so anyway?

Many thanks Pete - your website is filled with great information and I visit regularly however, I can't find the Festivus link. I disagree with Doug. I'm the original owner of an 8 foot Festivus pole, not a 6 footer like he has. I believe his was shortened at some point, possibly by a previous owner. And I'm quite sure the poles were NEVER powder coated, they should have a natural aluminum finish. Now if someone wants to make a Day 2 pole, that is their business, but I think someone needs to keep track of exactly how they left the factory. By the way, mine did have the "Caution Fan" sticker on it (an 8 foot pole will stop a ceiling fan in it's tracks).  ;) ~Kevin

What is the serial number of your pole? This is probably an early/late, running change thing. I think mine might be a "leftover?"

Or a carryover/continuation prototype?

A Registry is obviously needed. These should be documented now before Pookie gets a hold of them?

Cool to see the 2152 story from Al.  I've owned it for over 2 years now, it's being updated/refreshed and will be even better than it was before!  Will provide pics when it's finished, which should be very soon.
