No safety worries at all (at hotel or race venues at least)
2 of the ultimate Ford powered cars were in hotel lobby though

And Rex & Tony (the owners) are both great guys to top it off!!

You CA boys are spoiled, LOL... That is definitely not a rust bucket, but it does have a bad paint job.
I was thinking same thing!! Lol

Yep it was probably racked improperly (considering where the engine/weight is), then when the front wheels were removed it flipped off of the arms backwards. Should also probably have used a screw type jack in the rear.  (over 30 years in the lift business, I have seen some crazy stuff out there!)

Suggestion: Go to, click on contact Hunter & see who local sales & service reps are. They should be able to recommend a local shop with the right equipment & mentality to align classic cars, there is a big difference in shops!!

Only 40% chance of rain. But it found me of course lol

Gulfstream aqua and white interior. The best color combination, IMHO.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: GT500 Tach to MSD tach adapter
« on: April 17, 2020, 09:37:11 AM »
I have MSD 6AL & distributors on 3 vehicles (one of them for around 30 years). Had a pickup coil in distributor go bad once, but zero other problems. I really like to be able to change timing curve without removing distributor, plus rev limiter etc as Royce mentioned. Rev limiter is a plus when you run your as stuff hard as I do!  :D  Not sure if 67 & 69 tach wiring is the same, but 2 of mine (69 GT350 & 69 Boss 429) are used with factory tachs & I wired without butchering factory wiring. Been 15-20 years ago but I think I have notes/schematics about how I did it if you are interested.

fwiw Mike

All GM dealers are required to have a Hunter Road Force Elite due to truck vibration problems. Here is some info plus a locator to find a tire store near you that has one:

It is not only is a balancer but a diagnostic tool that analyzes & identifies the problem in a wheel & tire assembly.
And yes I am a Hunter sales rep lol, but I personally saw the difference it makes over standard balancing long before I became a rep!

mikeh, thanks for your reply, and the additional photos of the Curry car. Wayne Curry also had CSX3201 at some point.


1st pic is CSX3201 with the black drag raced 68 GT500 on the left and KK1660 on the right. Second is a pic I took at a local Mustang show before I met Wayne around 1980-81. Note the plate, WC3201. 3rd is me sitting in it (barely) in 2016 a few hours before transport picked it up & took to CA. (widow sold it)
