Pete and Rick, thanks for starting this thread and adding to it, wish I could have made it but circumstances prevented me from doing so, hope to be there in 2023.

Thanks again,
Dave

Any one know more about the lady or the car ? Might have been here before ?

Tammy Sanders, '70 Mustang, Summit Point, mid '70s

Actually, that is Joyce Sanders. The car was a 70 Mach 1 that she, her husband Calvin and Calvin Jr built in their backyard in Chesapeake VA with help from a bunch of local autocross and SCCA folks. At one point it had a Boss 302 engine, later a built up 289 (parts of the Boss 302 ended up in my 70 Boss 302). She and Calvin Jr ran it in SCCA GT-1 until the mid-80s, then autocrossed it until the early 90s. She sold it to a vintage racer in FL around 1995. She and Calvin Jr also autocrossed her 68 GT350 convertible from the mid 70s until around 2005 or 06 (she also drove that car in the SAAC-31 open track at VIR in 06).

I noticed that by doing it the way you did,  you eliminated the need to drill out the threads on the calipers, which means they can be used as purchased. Very cool, good engineering!

    Good story written about how the wreck happened in Mike Mooney's book about the Griffith. Another demo ride gone wrong (and in a residential area to boot.....)

    HAHA, I didn't actually notice the VW in the photo until I was processing my photos that night (I think it was in Scottsville). It was a poor stand in for my blue/white stripes 66 GT350 I left in the garage that day.......

    Southeastern Virginia Region SAAC / Re: SVSAAC 2021 December Driving Tour

    Thanks for posting, looks to have been a great day, good turnout. Like that Fairlane rag top !
    Honk, If it's the one I'm seeing, that's a vinyl top on the blue Fairlane. Maybe I'm missing something. :o

    Yes, Beautiful turnout and weather. 8)

    HAHA, yeah, the Camaro owner was a patron of the restaurant, who just happened to roll in after we were there. Besides the fact that I like really like Z/28s and Yenkos (although I'm pretty sure that was a clone), I wanted to get a photo of the Camaro with all of the Shelbys breathing down its neck LOL.

    As for the Fairlane, it's actually a white painted roof (and believe it or not, that's how it came. Other than being repainted, it is a mostly original car that my buddy Tom got out of Ohio a couple of years ago. Just north of 50K orig miles.

    Southeastern Virginia Region SAAC / SVSAAC 2021 December Driving Tour
    « on: December 05, 2021, 10:03:16 AM »
    Yesterday, the Southeastern VA Region SAAC held its final event of 2021- a driving tour starting at the visitor's center in Jamestown (just north of the Jamestown-Scotland Neck ferry landing),which headed up Route 5 (with a lunch stop at Indian Field Tavern on Route 5 in Charles City County). After a great lunch, we headed north on 5, crossed the James River at the Benjamin Harrison bridge at Hopewell, and proceeded down 10 to Surry, where our group broke up. We had approximately 30 folks and a good number of cars (including a 65 GT350, four 66 GT350s, two 67 GT350s, two 68 GT350s, two Cobra replicas, two new GT350s, a 68 Mustang 2+2 and a 69 Fairlane). We had great weather and didn't encounter any real traffic problems. The only casualty was a mechanical problem with a 65 Mustang GT Fastback; we left it with a friend in Surry and picked it up later in the day). All in all, a nice way to cap off 2021. Much thanks to Greg and Kristie Bradner for organizing and hosting this event. See the below link for photos:

    Southeastern Virginia Region SAAC / Shelby Drive to Afton VA Today
    « on: November 06, 2021, 08:13:55 PM »
    A small group of early GT350 owners from Eastern and Central VA got together today to make a run up Route 6 from Richmond, through Scottsville and up to a section of the Blue Ridge Parkway south of I-64, ending at The Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton VA for lunch. Larry Barnett, Bob Garland, Greg Bradner and Tim Kilinski drove their 66 and 67 GT350s (I just rode along and took pictures this time). Great company, great weather and great food. Thanks to Tim for organizing this. See the link below to the photos.

    As promised, the link to some of my photos from the 2021 edition of the Virginial Festival of the Wheel. As Flmach1 noted, the theme was Ford v Ferrari. About 150 cars, lots of spectators. The event benefitted the Cancer Center at the University of Virginia:
