Maybe it's just because I notice it, but there are more than a few modern auto manufacturers that offer a color that is very similar to Lime Gold.

Colors go in and out of fashion. Seems to me that greens, along with bright, primary colors were big in the '60s, browns and golds in the '70s, pastels and teals (think Miami Vice) in the '80s, silver and beige in the '90s...etc.

My understanding is that a color change generally hurts the value some.

Guess I missed you this year Dave - seems like we always bump into each other in the swap meet area.

Thanks for the picks!

The Pepsi '69 Bud Moore Mustang was my favorite. Had not seen that one before.

Lots of great photos on the Petersen site - thanks for the link.

If you search Dan Gurney you'll see they erroneously have some photos of Jerry Titus working on his Trans-Am Firebird.

And - if you search NASCAR Grand Touring you'll find some great photos of the Bud Moore Cougars  8)

Ummm, did Vern buy the independent comp Cobra?

Or maybe he is just there as an agent?

I'm having a drink watching the auction on NBCSN, so maybe I'm seeing things...

And to think, I knew him when.....   ;D

I sure hope you can make it Steven, it would be great to see you and get some pictures of your Shelby!

Normally, I do the posters for the race. Tommy Kendall was set to be the Grand Marshal this year and the poster was all ready to go to the printer when the pandemic hit.

So no banquet this year (where they auction off one of the signed posters) and no poster  :(

But at least they are going to have the event and I think Tommy is on the hook for next year.

Hopefully I will see you there.

Since this is a "Vintage Racing Images" thread, below is what the poster would have looked like.

Yes Mike, I provided the decals (except for some of the smaller sponsor decals that are readily available) for Kendall's recreation of the championship winning 1968 Bud Moore Engineering Grand Touring Cougar. I wanted to make sure Kendall unveiled it before I posted any picture of it. I'll post some more on this thread when I get the chance.

And I just heard that Gary Moore will be bringing his Cougar to this summer's Jefferson 500 vintage race. I've seen it at VIR, very very cool Cougar that I think was built by Cobra Automative?

Looking forward to watching it run again a Summit Point.

Keep us posted redpony - I too am very curious what the issue is.

Water Wetter recommends that at least 15% antifreeze be present in street vehicles.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: Mico bleeder valve

I'm sure most already are aware of this, but seeing this thread I can't help but be reminded of the plot line that ran through several episodes of the '60s daytime soap "Dark Shadows".

Early on in that show Roger Collins is injured when the brakes fail on his '66 GT350H (rented for the purpose of filming a few scenes I would think).

Turns out his troubled son, David, removed the bleeder valve in an attempt to cause the crash.

Sorry for sidetracking a bit!

Thanks for going to the trouble to post and share it.

Here is a very cool illustration of Prudhomme's Super Snake dragster by Ken Dallison.

Scanned this from a circa 1968 issue of Car and Driver magazine.
